The Top-O-matic cigarette-rolling machine is well worth the few dollars it costs and pays for itself within a few weeks. If you have been hesitant to begin rolling your own cigarettes because you think its too much trouble, the Top-O-Matic is for you. Ranging in price from $30 to $40, this machine rolls firm tightly packed cigarettes, is easy to use and produces consistent results.
Making the Cigarette
Simply place the cigarette tube on the ejector, fill the reservoir with tobacco, press down with your fingers and turn the hand crank. A fresh tightly packed cigarette pops off the ejector. Unlike smaller hand held versions, this cigarette maker does not require tamping the tobacco with a plastic tamper and fills the tube to the end. Not only does it make a great cigarette, it is quick and easy to use.
Prevents Over Filling
If overfilled, the maker simply pushes the extra tobacco to the side instead of jamming it into the tube. It does occasionally jam, if too much tobacco is packed into the ends of the reservoir, or extremely fine dry tobacco is used, but this is easy to avoid once you have used it a few times.
Less Tobacco Waste
One of the benefits of this machine, other than the obvious benefits of saving money by rolling your own cigarettes, is that dry crumbly tobacco that cannot be used in other cigarette makers can be used eliminating waste at the end of the bag. It actually works best with slightly dry tobacco, where other machines require constant monitoring to keep tobacco moist.
I purchased the Top-o-Matic cigarette-rolling machine a week ago and other than two or three loose cigarettes made while I was learning to use the machine , each cigarette has come out firm and tightly packed with no annoying void at the end of the tube and no weak area at the filter.
Adjusting Cigarette Size
Top-o-Matic cigarette rolling machines have a one-year warranty and are fully adjustable for both King size and 100s. A simple metal plate attaches with the twist of a nut to adapt to King size tubes. Loosening the nut and removing the plate sets it for 100’s allowing you to change between sizes quickly and easily.
Rolling Your Own Saves Money
Rolling your own cigarettes produces cheap cigarettes for around $1.00 a pack, depending on the type of tobacco you purchase. With premium cigarettes selling for over $5.00 a pack, you can make a whole carton of cigarettes for less than the price of two packs from the store and pay for the machine itself by rolling your first carton of cigarettes.
I recommend the Top-o-Matic cigarette rolling machine for its ease of use and for the quality of the cigarettes it produces. As an inexpensive cigarette maker, this machine is worth the money and functions as promised.
