From a selling perspective, we generally recommend Storz & Bickel because of their excellent build quality and the Crafty+'s bigger brother, the Mighty has been without doubt our best selling vaporizer of 2019. But with the new upgrades, we strongly believe that the Crafty+ Vaporizer might just surpass for the first time in history its bigger brother. Why? Well, let's just put a few points together.
1. Consistent Flavor
Perfecting a consistent and smooth flavor isn't easy and this is definitely where the Crafty+ vaporizer excels.

The Crafty+ unit, however, is built using a product called PEEK which is a high-grade heat resistant and food proof plastic that is often used in the medical field for surgical implants.

If you're using a vaporizer for the first time then Storz & Bickel is definitely the right choice, As it's just going to make your whole vaping experience a lot pleasanter. Many people that purchase lower-quality vaporizers tend to struggle with the initial setup, they don't know how to grind their material. They have to keep stirring their flower as it's not vaporizing equally. Plus they are uncertain of the correct temperature to use in order to get the most out of their product.
Owning a Crafty Plus makes vaporizing a breeze, before you begin your first session make sure that the unit is fully charged. Grind up your flower to a medium to fine grind. Fill the dosing capsule. Now you don’t need to use the dosing capsules, you can just go ahead and fill the oven chamber, but we really recommend the capsules as they don’t affect the performance of the Crafty+ whatsoever and it simply keeps things a lot cleaner and easier to manage.
Now that you have your dosing capsule in the oven go ahead and twist the cooling unit back on and click the power button one time. That will start heating up the vaporizer to 365°F. You can expect the heat up time to take about a minute. The red LED indicates that the device is heating up and once it reaches the base temperature it turns green and you’re going to hear the device vibrate.\
The draw resistance is perfect, it really is good, and when you take your first hit, you’ll instantly notice the clean flavor that the Crafty Plus produces. As you inhale the vapor you might notice the red LED turn back on. That indicates that the temperature has decreased and the oven is heating back up.
Once you notice the vapor start to dissipate then simply turn it up a notch and go to a higher temperature. We recommend going through all 3 pre-set heat settings to get the most out of each session. So start at the default temperature of 365°F, click twice to reach 383°F and finish by clicking 3 times to activate the super-boost and reaching the top temp of 410°F
Just remember that if you are using the included dosing capsule that when you open the top of the oven chamber to get it out, that it might be super hot, so don’t go scorching the tips of your fingers!
Crafty+ Dosing Capsules

Simply pop in a new capsule and enjoy it. The capsule magazine pack can be purchased extra as a set of 8 and cost less than $7. Click here to view the crafty dosing capsules.
