I bought one earlier this year and then sold it off after it ending in a drawer for a few months with me quietly resenting it. I just feels like a cheap drill, the vapour is impressive and tasty and all but lacks efficiency to a shocking degree, the temp dial is pretty wild too and somehow I managed to burn myself on the thing a couple of times trying to take the tip off. Ultimately my own mistake, I'm a sucker for wooden and butane vapes and this was a venture out of that safe bubble but I'm smack back in that bubble :rolleyes::horse::myday:

I get that this is exactly what some people are looking for, and it seemed well made and all, but I couldn't get into it

Have been using the plenty a few times a week for about 3 weeks or so now. Just yesterday did a few loads in the chamber reducer for the first time, using the dosing capsule one time, just herb in the reducer 3 times, and herb and the mini concentrate pad 3 times as well. I am honestly really impressed by the plentys performance with smaller loads! Each style produced really good results for about 10 minute sessions. For the record the chamber reducer was used for the first time yesterday and multiple times that evening and throughout the day today. I would not have been able to handle that many bowls in a day.

Fully loaded we have been able to keep vapor coming for nearly an hour during movies and whatnot. I really like this device and feel like it might be Storz and Bickels only fairly priced device. After seeing a breakdown of the mighty(on reddit) and watching the volcano essentially stay at the same msrp for over a decade....the plenty is a great deal. I am not bothered at all by the "cheap" materials as they seem durable enough and easy to maintain. The unit has not been able to burn me despite my best efforts(my flowerpot will kiss my arm about once every 6 months and remind me to be careful-not an issue with the plenty at all). The dead man switch handle is honestly appreciated in my house as the plenty gets used on the couch for the most part.

Cleaning the screens and chambers has been much easier than I had prepared for. I have not yet cleaned the cooling coil and could see that being a bit tricky as I am hoping to get stem milk from it. Guess I will need a fairly small but deep pan to boil the milk in while submerging the coil.

Genuinely impressed with this one. It is far far more efficient than it gets credit for, each load has been evenly vaped and is consistent throughout with no exceptions whatsoever. Stock the chamber is large so yes you must use a large amount of material or use the concentrate pad. The chamber reducer works! I would estimate with the chamber reducer I am using about the same amount as I would in the solo or sticky brick maxx or flowerpot etc. Smooth, cool, flavorful vapor each time. The vapor does have a "taste" to it though-not sure what the deal is there. It tastes good but kind of "sharp", might be the plastic or metal in the coil. I have cleaned and burned off everything and am not worried about anything whatsoever but it does have a unique flavor profile.

In short this thing to me is basically a Ronco easybake oven. Set it and forget it, no stirring and no fussing around. It is not exact or precise but the results are fantastic. This is now our permanent living room/couch vape, flowerpot is in my mancave, extreme q in the bedroom for bags in bed, and everyone else gets well deserved rest. I need to get rid of the combustion stank I accidentally put in my SB Maxx after forgetting I had taken the intake reducer out(burned the HELL out of a bowl like a dummy) but otherwise I think for a few months my VAS will get some time off.

It has gotten me interested in a volcano eventually but I really doubt I will appreciate the difference between the Q and the volcano. My better half does all the work with the bags so the reduced heat up time and other perks of the cano would probably not really register with me.

Cheers ya'll and happy Halloween!

I put that down to the S/S coil, one reason I swapped to a JHook.
When the VAS flares back up I will likely try a Jhook out, thank you for the advice! Be easier to get stem milk from as well. Have you noticed harsher/hotter vapor from the hook compared to the coil?

Being able to see how much vapor you are sucking in helped me stop barking as much and I use a large Jhook so all the glass seems to work just fine.
18mm for me, well worth US$15,
And some 14 to 18mm male GonG adapters to slip into the black housing instead of the S/S whip (these also make a great Vapcap wpa)
even female angled adapters work and are supposed to help with directing the heat away from the Plenty while inverted on a bong (I don't use it anymore, jhook only now)

The jhook can also mount directly on the black housing but I like the adapter setup for quick hook cleans without full disassembly.

I wouldn't try the stem milk with Plenty's coil. If some residue of milk stays inside, and it will, you'll end up with nasty rancid milk flavors.

I don't own a Q but the general consensus is that Volcano's bags are a big improvement over Q's: valve system prevents vapor to leak out and it takes way less time to fill one. But I agree that it probably doesn't justify the cost if you already have a Q.

For deep cleaning you can just boil the Plenty coil in hot water. After a couple of water changes even the sticky resin film comes out/off the coil. Don't know about milk but I can't see it adhering to the coil any harder than resin.

Your device is working normally, it is analog so not very precise. When the load is getting finished I will wait until the orange heater indicator light turns off before puffing to squeeze the last bits out of a load (I start and finish on 7 as it is impossible to combust with this device)
The trigger is a timer reset safety switch and does not control the heater cycling, I use a rubber band on mine as I find it annoying to have to keep pulling the trigger.
S&B CS is hit or miss at best, some fan boys will say they are great...I have not found this to be true.
Nor I. Service requires infinite patience.
