Fresh Choice RYO Machine

Fresh Choice Tobacco has developed a first-of-its-kind creation for the MYO/RYO smoking segment. The Fresh Choice electric cigarette machine—which is about the size of a toaster— puts a measured amount of tobacco into each cigarette tube with ease, saving consumers time, trouble, and money, creating a pack of cigarettes in two minutes. Once tobacco is loaded into the machine, a series of flashing lights lead the operator through the cigarette-making sequence, and will make cigarettes as fast as the operator can load tubes into the unit. A variable compaction knob allows users to select the degree of compaction the smoker desires. The machine retails for $449 and comes with a 30,000-cigar warranty.
