Now that it’s illegal to smoke in enclosed public spaces, we at gadgetshop HQ were faced with something of a moral dilemma when it came to this remarkable contraption. How to subject the Original Rubber Ashtray to the sort of rigorous testing procedure we apply to practically everything that comes our way. Rather than test it in the freezing cold of Car Park 3B, we decided to construct a special fume cupboard with a built-in extraction device, and a ‘sucker’ to do the dirty business of smoking. He tells us he didn’t inhale. Following two or three puffs at maximum velocity, we attempted to melt the ashtray. It’s rubber, after all. He puffed. We stubbed. He puffed some more. We stubbed furiously. But now matter how hard we tried, the rubber would not melt, discolour or in any way bend to our will. Then the moment of revelation: this rubber ashtray is designed not to melt. Ever. Being entirely composed of super heat resistant formulation silicon rubber, it shrugs fags off like something far heavier, denser and metaller. Yet, despite its dark, black looks and solid moulded construction, it’s amazingly light. Just ask your chums to pick it up and they’ll completely overestimate its weight.
Trust us. It’s all astonishing. And really rather pleasant to look at.
