The FURNA vaporizer review, and this is a dual oven device that offers a couple of nifty features, so does that mean it will get a high review score?
We shall of course be taking a look at how this rather pricey device performs in this vaporizer review.
Vaporizers are now all the rage and can be used to vape on herbs and with the right equipment, concentrates as well.
Obviously the majority of users will be adding cannabis, however if that isn’t legal in your country yet, CBD flower and concentrates as well as many legal herbs can also be vaped.
These include: catnip – spearmint – basil – chamomile and very many more.
Google is your friend as to how each plant can help when vaped.
BTW medicinal cannabis is legal to use here in the UK but under strict conditions – find out more from the UK Government.
I’ve been fortunate to review a number of vaporizers from the extremely expensive to the more wallet friendly.
It’s fair to say the FURNA vaporizer is priced at the higher end so let’s see if it deserves its top spot in the market.
What Can We Expect From the FURNA Vaporizer?
This is a dual oven herb and concentrates vaporizer, though for using the latter you’ll need to buy the kit separately.
It has a 3500mAH internal battery – not USBc fast charging – and FURNA reckons you can get about 20 sessions per charge.
I’ve had this for about a month and used it a couple of times per week, and reckon that’s about 15 to 20 sessions and the battery is still going strong.
The dual oven means you can pack two and customize them both with coloured nibs and indeed different symbols on the main screen – nice touch.
The oven is conduction rather than convection – more on that in a moment – and the kit comes with all you need to vape on herbs – except a grinder.
I’ve reviewed a number of vaporizers, from the very pricey to the budget and mid range.
The FURNA vaporizer given the price, is aimed at the higher end of the market and of course we shall in this review if it deserves its lofty price tag.
OK on with the review, and this was sent to me free of charge direct from the company – thank you – and as always freebies in no way impact on my thoughts and opinions.

Design and Build Quality
The outer shell of the FURNER vaporizer appears to be zinc alloy that has a bit of a slippery feel about it, whilst the rest of the plentiful ‘bits and bobs‘ are made from a mix of plastic and silicone.
It’s a heavy piece of kit in the hand – down to the internal battery I guess – and that is a decent sized one too at 3500 mAH. That’s plenty of power for using a vaporizer and FURNA say you can get up to 20 sessions out of one charge.
It’s is nicely put together and all the moving parts move well enough, though the twisting off and on of the mouthpieces can be a little crunchy at first but soon wears in.
The slide to remove the oven is a nice touch and is a very smooth action indeed, push up to pop the pod out and down to click it into place, however, the slider does rattle a wee bit.
That rattle could also be the fire/select button that sits on the slider, it does have a nice throw to it with a resounding click when pressed.
The button on the base, used to enter the menu, is a little stiffer but hey it does the job.
As far as the design itself goes, it looks a lot like the Vaporfi Atom vaporizer, to be honest most handheld vaporizers out there do all look a little samey, except maybe the sexy looking Lookah Ice Cream.
It’s certainly a big bugger and apart from the rather large FURNA logo, the only other design feature is the coloured tips. In my box there’s a couple of sky blue – a black and a purple…handy for remembering what material you have inside each one. And remember the dual oven means you can carry another or have it ready for a larger session.
It only appears to be available in Black right now, which is a pity, but hey – you can’t go wrong with black, and it is the new whatever 😉
So…nothing to get excited about design wise – as in looks – build wise it’s pretty solid, so let’s see how this one performs.
FURNA Vaporizer Quick Start Guide
- x5 clicks of the fire button [labeled B1 on the user guide] on and off
- Press button on base [B2] to enter menu
- Use B2 to scroll through the options – Temperature – Screen – Symbol – Units – Language – About and Exit
- Scroll using B1 to select option press B2
It’s all very intuitive and once you’ve had a couple of goes it all becomes second nature…honest!
A quick word about each option:
- Temperature: select and use B1 to scroll in 5 degree increments
- Screen: brightens or dims the read out
- Symbol: Customize each oven – chip recognizes it – ideal for different flavours
- Units: switch from Centigrade to Fahrenheit
- Language: choose!
- About: shows current model
- Exit – obvious!
How Does the FURNA Vaporizer Perform?
For this vaporizer review, I was only able to use one oven as I only had one flavour – blame the covids…and the pubs shutting…
I used the perfectly legal CBD Flower – the Artisan CBD Frosted Kush – I received a very large jar of that lovely stuff for the Davinci IQ2 Vaporizer review, and I know the flavour very well indeed.
As I always say, ground the material down to about the size you’ll see herbs in supermarket jars.
The FURNA vaporizer comes with a number of accessories in the box – not a grinder though – including a rather nifty funnel. This is a bloody brilliant addition that obviously channels the herb or in my case CBD flower – into the oven without any mess…simple but genius 😉
It’s quite a deep oven, and FURNA says you ideally need to pack in about 0.23grams – pack down using the included tool [or of course your own] but not too tightly as it needs air.
Set you preferred temperature – I went for 420F – I could list all the temps and how they fared, but given the choice is between 320 – 420 F (160 – 215 C) and in 5 degree increments, I’d be here all day.
Suffice it to say, start low and increase until you find your sweet spot…I like mine warm…
I did try at the lower end of the scale, but it was a coldish vape with a muted flavour for my tired old taste buds.
How’s the Flavour Off the FURNA Vaporizer?
As I said, on the lower settings it wasn’t much to write home about.
Bumped up to 420F and things perked up a lot.
I was getting deep rich botanicals off the flower and on the exhale a hint of that sweet frosting…just a hint but enough.
Vapour wise it was OK, though we’re not looking to be chucking clouds with a vaporizer.
Though if I’m brutally honest, I was getting less vapour than many vaporizers I’ve used and only the slightest throat tickle – though this particular CBD flower is very smooth.
There’s no airflow control on the Furna vaporizer, something I reckon a lot of us like, and the draw is pretty loose, on a scale of 1:10 with 10 being extremely airy, this is high 8’s mid 9’s.
To get a perfect bake you really need to work on your packing style.
After a couple of goes I got it right and also gave it a bit of a stir between puffs.
It’s a conduction oven rather than convection – I’ve explained this before:
The vast majority on the market are conduction that is to say the material is heated/baked directly on a hot surface – whilst convection has hot air passing through the material.
This is why with conduction stye vaporizers, it’s extremely important you nail your packing or else things can toast a little too much on the outside leaving the inside if you like a little raw.
Here’s an excellent video from FURNA on how to do just that:
As you can see from the video, the FURNA vaporizer and its dual ovens means you can pack and go 😉
Yes the FURNA vaporizer is dual use – as in herb and concentrates – however you’ll need to buy the concentrates oven separately – bit of a shame.
Cleaning the FURNA Vaporizer
Keeping your vaporizer clean is key to keeping the performance and flavour at it’s best.
Here’s a handy video guide to show how to keep your FURNA vaporizer in tip top condition.
- Dual ovens
- Large temperature range
- Customizable as in coloured nibs and oven symbols
- Included funnel is great idea for messy buggers!
- All the tools you need [except a grinder]
- Heats up quickly with even bake if packed right
- Good flavour
- OKish vapour if that’s your thing
- Herbs and concentrates [see below]
- Intuitive menu – plenty of options
- Clear and adjustable screen
- Great battery life
- Main body is a little slippery
- Rattle from the fire button or slider
- Concentrate oven sold separately [subjective]
- Lack of airflow control
- A little pricey
Final Review Verdict
A budget vaporizer this is not, and at the price it’s just about premium quality.
It feels OK in the hand, but I’m not getting that total premium quality overall feel.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s put together very well indeed with good material, it just doesn’t feel substantial, despite its weight.
That rattle has become more apparent the more I’ve used the FURNA vaporizer and you don’t need to shake it too much to hear it…might just be mine.
I love the option of dual ovens and it might have been nice to have the concentrate adaptor included, that may be me just being greedy…but it is a pricey kit.
The symbols and nibs to identify the ovens is a great touch, as is the ability to flip the oven for storage so no pocket crap gets into the mouthpiece.
Speaking of which, the mouthpiece is very comfortable, however the lack of airflow control means this is a rather airy vape.
Would I Highly Recommend the FURNA Vaporizer?
Flavour wise and yeah it’s good there’s no denying that, and the vape is smooth – again could be down to my CBD flower and your chosen material may be different.
So would I recommend the FURNA vaporizer?
It’s a tough call if I’m honest.
Yes I know vaporizers are in general pricey, but performance and flavour wise this one just and I mean just about justifies the lofty price tag.
Obviously FURNA is aiming high in the vaporizer market – price wise that is – and if the addition of the dual oven and symbols idea takes your fancy, then go for it.
As to if money was no object I’d buy after using it…
It’s a maybe from me – me on the fence again?
