What Features to Look for when Purchasing a Cigar Humidor

If you have purchased a quantity of good cigars, you probably already know that you will need a humidor in which to store them and maintain their freshness. You will want a humidor that is well made, functions perfectly, and is beautiful to look at.

You have been looking at cigar humidor websites and Googling words like “American made cigar humidor”, “Quality humidors”, “Desktop humidors”, or “Unique humidors”.

When you come to a website that interests you, here’s what you need to look for:

Construction: Is the lid heavy and does it close tightly? Do the seams line up and are the corners square? Are the hinges and locks (if you choose to have locks) of high quality and appearance? Is the finish flawless?

Function: Do these humidors contain excellent humidification devices and high quality hygrometers that accurately measure humidity levels inside the box? Is the interior as well-made as the exterior? Do the humidors come with instructions for storing your cigars?

Design: Are the humidors you are looking at attractive, even beautiful in their design and in the woods from which they are made?

Choices: Are there choices among sizes, woods, trims, finishes and prices?

Customer Service: Does the website give you information about how to contact the maker and does the maker guarantee his work?

If you can answer yes to all these questions, you have come to the right place!
