Hurricane candles, glasses, and candle holders are tall and cylindrical. Although the word “hurricane” tends to describe the shape (tall and cylindrical), its origins are in its purpose. Hurricane candles, glasses and holders are made to withstand drafts and wind.

FAQsCan you use the hurricane for anything other than candles such as incense?
Always check individual product use and care instructions. Many of the items in our collection of hurricane glassware could be used for burning candles and incense, as well as displaying flowers. We even like to see them stand alone as items of home decor.What is a hurricane candle holder?
You can probably guess why a candle holder is called a hurricane, and you’d be correct. The tall cylindrical glass is designed to protect the flame from sudden strong drafts. And what is more drafty than a hurricane? A hurricane glass is open at both ends, so it sents atop a candle (or kerosene or oil lamp). Some hurricanes are perfectly cylindrical. Others have a pear-shape curve that is wider at the bottom and more narrow at the top. You will see hurricane glass used for candles, oil lamps, and electrical lamps and light covers.How do you remove candle wax from a glass hurricane?
Always defer to the manufacturer’s instructions. Most glass can be soaked in hot water and then rubbed off by hand. In some cases, you might be able to chill or freeze thicker and sturdier glass and gently pick off the hardened wax. We prefer the hot-water soak method, as it is less likely to break or scratch the glass. Never use an open flame to melt the wax; this could burn and stain your hurricane glass.
