Let’s take a look and review the new Lookah Ice Cream Vaporizer which as the name suggests is made for vaping on dry herbs.
Lookah has been around for a very long time – est 2009 – and in particular specialize in stunning glass bongs and water pipes, some of which are absolute works of art.
Based in Los Angeles, they stock a wide range of products and to be honest I could spend a bloody fortune there lol.
The Lookah Ice Cream Vaporizer is the first the company has brought out – so it will be interesting to see if their vast knowledge has created a most excellent device…
What To Expect From the Lookah Ice Cream Vaporizer
Straight out of the box and this looks like one of the easiest to operate dry herb vaporizers I’ve ever used – and I’ve used many.
The clue is in the name when it comes to the design – as you can see it really does resemble an ice cream cone.
There’s x4 temperature settings which I shall be testing and the ceramic oven has a stopper that can reduce the fill.
A reminder that vaporizers can be used with all kinds of herbs such as spearmint and even catnip and in the future I will add a guide as to what each offers the user.
OK, let’s take a look at this smart looking entry priced dry herb vaporizer.
For the record this was sent to me free of charge for the purpose of this review direct from Lookah – thank you – and as always freebies in no way affect the thoughts or opinions of this old stoner…really dude…really 😉

Lookah Ice Cream Vaporizer – Temperature Settings
Once the device is turned on using x5 clicks – you scroll through the temperature settings with a single press of the fire button.
The Lookah Ice Cream Vaporizer vibrates when the temperature is reached and ready to vape.
- Level 1：Green – 392°F ( GETTING STARTED: Low temperature with less vapor, plenty of terpenes and rich flavor, suitable for first hits on the fresh chamber of flower and flavor chasers)
- Level 2: Blue – 410°F (LIGHTLY TOASTED: Good and smooth taste, slightly hotter vapor with a good level of release)
- Level 3: Purple – 428°F (HALF BAKED: Smooth and more robust vapor, slight flavor loss, suitable towards the end of a session)
- Level 4: White – 446°F (FULLY BAKED: Maximum vapor production, but high terpenes and flavor depletion, suitable for experienced users)
Incidentally you have 240 seconds to vape on your filling before the device cuts off and you’ll need to reheat.
Design and Build Quality
It really is a very smart looking piece of kit that really does resemble an ice cream – nice choice of colours too.
The fire button is very clicky indeed and the cleaning tool slots into the base.
The top/mouthpiece is held on by strong magnets and the capacity of the oven can be altered by removing the silicone stopper which also can alter the airflow albeit slightly.
It does feel a little plasticcy for want of a better word, however certainly NOT cheap and feels like it will take a few knocks.
The oven features a nano ceramic heating element – which in my experience really does offer a cleaner tastier vape.
OK so the Lookah Ice Cream Vaporizer looks good and has a really cool design…so how does it vape?
How Does the Lookah Ice Cream Vaporizer Perform?
Given the recreational use of cannabis is illegal here in the UK, for this review I used the last of my perfectly legal CBD Flower – the Artisan CBD Frosted Kush – sent to me for the Davinci IQ2 Vaporizer review.
I ground the flower to about the same kind of size as herbs found in jars and loosely packed it into the oven/chamber.
I know the taste of this CBD Flower very well indeed, so let’s see how it vapes through the x4 temperature levels.
Level 1：Green – 392°F
Ummm not so sure this temperature level is ideal ‘for flavour chasers‘.
For me it felt a little too cool and the usual whack of flavour wasn’t coming through.
Sure it was a decent vape but I felt it needed a bit more oomph – not a lot of vapour or kick on the throat either.
Level 2: Blue – 410°F
Much better to say the least and I felt the earthiness of the terpenes really began to shine through.
I was getting more of that slightly sweetened frostiness too.
The vapour was slightly thicker – but still not that cloudy – however the hit to the throat was a nice little tickle.
Level 3: Purple – 428°F
I’m not sure I’ve ever vaped on a herb at this high temperature.
Saying that it really wasn’t hot but the warmer side of warm if that makes sense.
At this temp the terpenes really did pop and that sweet sugariness from the CBD Flower really came to the fore.
The device didn’t warm up at all BTW.
Level 4: White – 446°F
This is a pretty high temperature for sure, however I found this the very best one for me.
The flavour was intense with deep rich notes coming through creating a very moreish vape indeed.
I did find vaping half an oven on Blue and then swapping to White gave me the best experience…
- Dead simple to operate
- Good flavour
- Decent vapour
- Good oven size – can be adjusted
- Lovely design
- Great build quality
- Choice of temperatures
- Great price!
- Dry herb only no concentrates
- Lack of proper airflow
Final Review Verdict
I’m going to call this a budget herb vaporizer – but that in NO way takes away the performance – it is really very very good for the price.
The design is very eye catching – I would like to have seen some kind of knurling to make it less slippy – but that’s a nitpick to say the least.
The x4 temperature settings are great and very noticeable compared to a few herb vaporizers I’ve tried where they all feel a bit the same.
The oven is just big enough for a large or sharing session and the removable stopper cuts down the fill by about a third.
It is extremely easy to operate and would be perfect for those of you new to herb vaporizers and it won’t break the bank either 😉
As you can probably guess, the Lookah Ice Cream Vaporizer has really impressed me and remember I’ve reviewed some of the best and most expensive out there – so yeah, HIGHly recommended.
