One is back in stock if you are still interested....Went to see if vapefiend shipped to Canada but the are out of stock of the carb cap
Hi. I have the sapphire for my d cup. I wouldn't be without it as I think it makes a massive difference to the taste and ease of cleaning. For me, it's worth the money, especially with that discount.What's up guys, I'm thinking of taking the plunge on the Sapphire Dish but I have my reservations about it and hopefully I can get some quick answers from those of you who have and use them yourselves before these get sold out later today.
Since these come with a Thermal Shock warning, stating we need to heat up our metal before touching it to sapphire.. I think that kinda sucks.
Is this really necessary? I really don't want to have to do it. I've already retired my Blazer Big Shot Torch for BBQ use only and I'm going to be paranoid enough whenever handling the sapphire in the sink as it is LOL! I would much rather keep using the Titanium tool on the NV Carb cap or my Stainless steel Skilletools as I have been with the SIC dish. I remember I read somewhere that certain metals shouldn't be used with certain dab surfaces and I remember specifically reading about Stainless being bad.
Could someone go over what's safe and what's not with dabbing surfaces again? Are my Stainless steel skillet tools ok to use with my SIC Dish and Sapphire if I decide to get one? Please tell me you don't really have to heat up your tools.. or tell me this can be solved with a Boro or Quartz dabbing tool. It just seems to me that a quartz or boro dab tool touching the sapphire would be more appropriate? I dunno..
Seriously.. I'm thinking of jumping the gun on the $30 off this dish.. If I wake up with some answers from you Sapphire owners i'd like to hear and there are any left.. I'll pull the trigger!
I just used the sale as an opportunity to pick up the sapphire dish for the dcup too. I like to think given how many warnings I've seen and the anxiety I've had about buying one will lead me to take excellent care of it.
I think I'll just mop with dry q tips and only soak it in room temp water to avoid extreme temp fluctuations and it should be ok.
Right on. I'm a big fan of PBW soak with sonication, but no way I'm adding any extra chance of destruction with the sound waves. PBW soak usually is enough to clean my bangers on its own if I'm patient. I try to cycle a couple so I don't notice.Yeah, DRY Qtips are fine, right after a dab.
I soak the sapphire dish in Simple Green Crystal, baked on junk, lifts off.
I use small amounts of Dark Crystal Clear, in the DCup titanium cup holder, with the PID on, warm.

I'm going to take the plunge now. Apparently that disclaimer gave me a little anxiety.rHi. I have the sapphire for my d cup. I wouldn't be without it as I think it makes a massive difference to the taste and ease of cleaning. For me, it's worth the money, especially with that discount.
Wrt touching with dab tools, I don't. Never have and don't need to. Generally just resting the tool against the edge will warm it sufficiently for my rosin to drop off. Occasionally I have had to blast with my little torch to get a persistent bit off, but this is very rarely.
There are also battery heated dab tools.
So I don't know what will happen if you touch the dish with a cold dab tool. Imo I suspect nothing will happen but as it is not necessary I haven't felt it is a risk.....
Good luck and I hope you find the sapphire as satisfying as I do...
Hey thanks for the reply,I put my metal dab tool up against the side of my ruby insert to melt the dab off all the time with no ill effects, skillet tools are all I use for dabbers. I think the danger of thermal shock is really a thing when it comes to liquids or things that are colder then room temp. As long as your tools or material haven't been chillin in the fridge you should be fine.
I just had to make sure that they are safe to use not just with the Sapphire but also for the SIC dish. For the most part I just use the TI on the CH Universal carb cap, but for some messy sauces and budder I had to use my Scoop Dog scooper and the spatula of my Glassy and unfortunately it does need to touch the sides of the SIC for a few seconds just to make sure nothing falls out.
