    I prefer to pulse and dunk in water about 4 times or so.

    Watched without sound, so I have no idea what the jar was about.

    Sometimes the pulsing and water idea (IF DONE INCORRECTLY) can cause the coils to get brittle.
    So pulsing and using ceramic tweezers or something to "knock or scratch" the debris off is a good alternative.

    On kanthal it happened once, but I've shifted to nichrome and SS316L long since then. No issues with those.

    I also have not had any issues with this method.
    However a friend that had no experience nor the mental capability to do any research (intended as a joke, the person was capable however failed to do so) tried this and OVER-glowed his coils.
    Basically he just did it wrong so the possibility is there for someone to do it incorrectly.
    If one can do it wrong, so can others.
    Myself, I normally pulse/rinse.

    That's the equivalent of over powering a coil on the first burn and letting it just break without even vaping on it once. Seen that happen and there was this one friend of mine who cut both the 2nd coil wire and the excess of the coil wire

    Wire brush the coils. Auto store or golfers brush, clean that caked shit off the wire.

    It looks like he's using the jar to catch the hot debris burning off the coil when he pulses it the first time or two. Definitely better than having it fall on the kitchen counter/floor.
