It would seem, what’s the difference? The main thing is to have where to throw. However, the question of ashtrays is actually much more delicate and significant. Restaurants were the first to ask it: many clients of expensive establishments, having decided to smoke at the end of a hearty dinner, were at a loss when a cheap ashtray was placed on their table. This is because smoking is actually a much more demanding process than one might think. And accessories have a strong impact on the overall smoking experience.

Different metals are added to the glass to give it a color from red, green to blue and azure, and they also use a new technology to burn different shades on the glass itself.
5 WAYS TO CHOOSE AN ASHTRAY
So, in order for it to always be the best, you should choose your ashtray based on 5 parameters:
1 — is the number of cigarette grooves.
If you, for example, have guests whom you treat with cigarettes, then it would be nice to take care that they can not only shake the ashes awkwardly towards you, but also conveniently place their cigarettes on the ashtray. On the other hand, if you prefer to smoke alone, the four-seat ashtray will only create a feeling of emptiness around
2 — bowl size.
Even in a small ashtray, the cup should be such that the ashes do not overflow. In fact, the size of the ash bowl is a serious problem, because today so many “single” ashtrays are undersized.
3 — groove width.
Be sure to pay attention to how wide the groove at the ashtray is, where to put the cigarette.
4 — the width of the edges of the ashtray.
Just as important as the cigarette notch itself is its length. So how the cigarette will lie on it directly depends on the width of the edges of the ashtray. The wider the walls, the longer the notch and the less likely the cigarette will simply balance and fall out.
5 — aesthetics.
Of course, it is important that the design of the ashtray itself is pleasing to the eye. A successful aesthetic find can not only smooth out many shortcomings, but also, most importantly, color the mood of smoking itself in a favorable tone.
