How do you use charcoal?

Three Kings offers quick-light charcoal. The tabs ignite easily and quickly by holding a simple, small-flamed lighter or match to it.

If you want to light shisha or hookah coals, light a quick-light charcoal with a lighter or match. Quick-light charcoal fully light within 20 to 30 seconds. Once the red sparks have died, let the charcoal burn until it’s fully covered in white-grey ash. Blow on the charcoal until it glows red, which indicates it’s ready for use. Move the red-hot glowing charcoal with a small pair of tongs. Warm the bowl. Attach the bowl to the top of the shaft. Place the hot charcoal on top of the foil. For the best result, allow the shisha to warm up for a few minutes.
