Portable vaporizers may be all the rage, but there's something to be said for an at-home system — especially during lockdown. While desktop vapes and plug-in devices ruled the market in the 90s and 2000s, they're now few and far between, and usually on the pricier side.
It's rare to find an at-home flower vape that works well and doesn't break the bank. But to find one that also — and perhaps most importantly — dominates every conversation and smoke sesh with its unnerving size and bizarro aesthetic? Look no further than beloved German vaporizer brand Storz and Bickel's wildest contraption yet: the Plenty Vaporizer.
With its power drill aesthetic, giant vapor stainless steel cooling coil, and thick, potent clouds, the Plenty looks like a piece of machinery (and hits like one too). This balance of wacky design and unmatched quality is typical of Storz and Bickel, whose similarly bombastic Volcano Vaporizer pioneered desktop devices in the 90s. Whimsical yet industrial, their products have a sense of humor that pairs perfectly with the stoner they're getting high.
The most affordable option from this premium brand, the Plenty Vaporizer shines in its analog simplicity, gonzo vibe, and claims of producing some of the coolest vapor on the market.
Below, here's everything you need to know about the Plenty.
What is the Plenty Vaporizer?
The Plenty is a handheld vaporizer from the German brand Storz and Bickel that resembles a power drill. In addition to its perfectly sized flower chamber and protruding coil that cools vapor, the Plenty is loved for its simplicity. With no LED whistles or app-capable bells, the Plenty is one of the safest bets on the market, and the most affordable.
While all Storz and Bickel vaporizers are lauded for their fabulous construction and vapor quality, they're generally super expensive — especially the larger units. Coming in at $249, the Plenty Vaporizer is a great way for casual users to experience the power and class of a top tier vapor brand at a fraction of the cost of other Storz and Bickel's at-home devices.
With this functionally pared down device, just plug the Plenty in, set the temperature control, and hit. The coil will keep the vapor cool no matter how hard or fast you vape. The potent and dense vapor it consistently produced had almost a menthol-like quality from the cooling function, and I was a bit taken aback by how powerful the device was. Whereas most flower vapes give you an experience that is decidedly underwhelming, this device got me so high it was almost a bit much.

Is the Plenty Vaporizer worth it?
The Plenty is a great vaporizer to fall in love with during winter lockdown, as long as you're the right match for this very unique device. While its design definitely doesn't appeal to everyone, its functionality will, as it's a beautifully constructed device and one of the hardest-hitting flower vapes on the market.
Initially, you may think needing to plug in your vaporizer is a drawback, but this throwback feature has its upsides too. For one, it will never die. You'll never lose the charger, or the vaporizer itself for that matter. And, with close to no heat up time, it's ready to go whenever you are.
And let's be honest, none of us are going anywhere anyways. You might as well invest in a wacky gift to yourself that will make sitting around getting high in your living room for months on end feel whimsical again. Sometimes good things come in strange spackages, and this is one of those times. The Plenty Vaporizer gives you plenty to love — and even more to talk about.
