If you are a roll your own tobacco consumer you will at some point want to move away from hand rolling those smokes to using a cigarette rolling machine.
We stock about 20-30 cigarette rolling machines, with prices starting at under twenty bucks and going up to just under a hundred dollars – higher priced cigarette rolling machines give you the ability to roll 50-100 smokes in under an hour or two, depending on how nimble your fingers are. You need standard materials in place of course, tubes, rolling tobacco and a willingness to spend some time.
Before we dive into our review of five great cigarette rolling machines lets give you an overview of what you need to know as you weigh the pros and cons of a manual cigarette rolling machine versus an electric cigarette rolling machine.
- The number of cigarettes you smoke per day really is the core issue you need to look at: if you are a 5-10 smokes per day then you should be fine using a manual cigarette rolling machine. If say 20-30 per day then an electric cigarette rolling machine is the way to go.
- Speed and time variables should be part of the assessment process: an electric cigarette rolling machine can roll about 30-40 cigarettes in about 5-10 minutes.
- How mobile is your lifestyle? If you don’t travel frequently then you won’t need a lighter, easier to handle cigarette machine that can be moved around easily.
- Budget is not to much of an issue; as we stated at the outset of this post, you can get a good manual cigarette rolling machine for under $20-40 bucks, depending on the construction of the machine. More expensive models use heavier metal alloys and don’t use as much plastic. But you pay a bit more for these models, as you are getting “more” in the materials.
- Not a lot of terminology to understand with cigarette rolling machines: “manual” machines can mean portable or table top, “feed mechanism” is where the rolling tobacco goes into the machine, “jams” just means the machine’s feed mechanism is not working and should be cleaned out.
- Most electric cigarette rolling machines make a King or 100’s size cigarette, so your cigarette production has to be more specific and you need to weigh this issue carefully prior to making a purchase. But most manual cigarette machines make King size, 100’s or both King and 100’s.
