This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in May of 2018. We don't have to tell you that smoking is dreadful for you and becoming increasingly expensive. But if you insist, you can cut costs by making your own smokes, and you can save yourself time and energy while doing so by investing in one of these helpful cigarette rolling machines. They come in manual, electric, and battery-powered varieties, and work with all kinds of paper, tobacco and herbs. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best cigarette rolling machine on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

July 11, 2019:

Our most recent update intends to achieve a well-balanced, varied list with options for all types of smokers. For instance, we've considered that smokers often on the go will prefer two types of machines: 1) a cheap, lightweight one that you can afford to keep in your pocket or inside your tobacco pouch without minding if it breaks after some time; or 2) a rugged, mechanical device made with high-quality parts that can take a beating inside your backpack. For those in the first camp, we have the Zig Zag 100mm (#9) and the Raw 79mm (#4). Those in the latter group will want to check out the Top-O-Matic Heavy Duty (#2), or either of our two new additions — the Premier Supermatic (#5) or the Gambler Red (#6). These three are all manually-operated, but the Gambler Red does have a plastic housing, so it's not as durable as the other two, which are made of metal.

Other smokers will prefer to produce a large quantity all at once, possibly filling up old cigarette cartons with their newly-rolled boges. For these folks, we point to the Top-O-Matic PoweRoll (#7), and our top pick, the PowerMatic 2 Plus, which has built a reputation as the go-to machine on the market. It can churn out perfectly-rolled cigarettes in bulk, reliably and without much fuss, and is, in general, a pleasure to operate.

In recent years, his writing chops have developed alongside his musical skills, thanks to a rich double life. During the day, he apprenticed with “Rolling Stone” journalist and critic Will Hermes, and when the sun set, he and his NYC-based, four-piece band gigged at high-end venues across the northeastern United States. His affinity for sharing things he's passionate about has culminated in nine years of experience as a music teacher at elementary schools, where he honed his ability to simplify and elucidate concepts to the uninitiated. All considered, he feels most at home writing about instruments, audio electronics and backpacking gear.
