Once it arrived and I unboxed it, i was impressed with the quality of the wood. I also happen to be an engraver, and was glad to see it came with a little aluminum plate I could engrave if I chose. The box was free of any noticeable blemishes or surface scratches. I also loved the deep, rich color. I tested the seal the way I had been taught; first close the lid and listen for a faint rush of air. Then open it again and close a dollar bill in the lid and make sure it isn't removed easily. The seal was perfect.
I took the time to calibrate the hygrometer. I decided not to use a digital one because I like the look of the analog and I'm not an expert yet, 1% either way will not make a difference to me at this point. It was off by about 10% but the adjustment was easy to make with a flat head screwdriver
Encouraged by this, I began the seasoning process. I prepped the humidifier and decided to mount it to the back wall, just like the picture showed, and that's when this product lost it's 5 star review...The humidifier included was too large to allow the box to close. I thought I had mounted it too high, but it was against the floor of the box. I purchased a couple of Drymistat tubes to use instead, but was disappointed the stock hardware wouldn't even fit in the box.
It's a pretty great entry level humidor. I'm sure there are better boxes out there, but this one is a great value. The humidifier didn't fit, but using a drymistat tube instead frees up more real estate anyway. I'm happy with this purchase and I'm confident this humidor will serve me well until I deem my stash worthy of an upgrade.
For those newbies (like I was) it can be a bit daunting figuring out how to season your humidor. My first batch of cigars actually dried out a bit because it took a while to hold that constant humidity level. You can find the instructions anywhere on the web, but I'll lay them out as best I can:
1) First and foremost you need to make sure your humidor is airtight. To test this you should drop the lid of your humidor down. If you hear a *woosh* noise it means you have a good seal. If not, your lid will drop like a rock. If it does not seem airtight make sure your hygrometer is tightly in the wood. If that does not work you may need to return the product (mine was fine).
2) Calibrate the hygrometer. Your humidor needs to be around a 70% constantly.
You will need: a milk jug cap or something similar, zip lock bag, table salt, and tap water.
Fill the milk jug cap about halfway with salt. Add water, but do not make it soupy. Place the cap and hygrometer in the zip lock bag and seal. You should leave this untouched for about 12 hours. It will create a 75% humidity. Once the time has passed get your hygrometer out and if it is not at 75% (which it most likely won't be) quickly adjust it to be. The adjusting proved to be difficult. Some reviews said there was a dial on the back of the hygrometer that you would need to take a screwdriver to. Then you could adjust the dial. However, this did not work for me for some reason. I discovered that you could pop apart the hygrometer and adjust it to 75% by hand.
3) Season the inside of the humidor by wiping with distilled water.
You will need: distilled water (does not have the impurities tap water has), bowl, and a clean rag.
This took me about 10 separate wipe downs. I had read how you needed to be careful to not warp the wood and I think that was my problem. I was being too careful initially. Finally, I had enough of my humidor not holding its humidity and started wiping it down sopping wet. It took a little bit to find the right amount, but finally it worked. I did make sure not to leave any puddles.
4) Have enough humidifiers to keep the humidity constant. Use distilled water.
I discovered that the humidifier which comes with the humidor does not work that great. I still have it in my humidor, but it dries out quickly. I ordered one of the tube humidifiers (Drymistat Humidifier Tube) and it works very well. You just have to make sure to add distilled water whenever it gets past the line.
5) Fill with cigars and enjoy!
Okay, I gave 3 stars from my first impression right out of the box. This is my first humidor so I'm not sure if my concerns and review are even relevant to the performance and functionality of the humidor.
The mahogany wood outside is pretty nice. Very elegant looking.
The analog hygrometer is smaller than pictured, just under one and a half inches in diameter, and the face is different. However, it seems to work. Within minutes of opening the lid the hygrometer is already adjusting itself. I'll upgrade to digital soon and compare. And not sure if it needs to be calibrated but will probably find out after the comparison.
Does it seal well? First thing I looked for was the Sure Seal Technology seal which is pictured to be under the lid at the bottom right. Mine didn't have that. Then I began to inspect the how well the box seals. Giving it the lid drop test, it does give a "whoosh" sound when the lid is let go and closes like a good sealed humidor should. But after inspecting it, it seems only the front wood lip on the lid is making that light contact with the box aiding in that proper sound. Both left and right side do not make contact, extremely close but no cigar..hehe.
Came with the round humidifier which I WILL be upgrading to the Boveda system. And came with the divider. No engravable name plate as stated in the description. No biggie, wasn't going to use it anyway. Also NO INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO CARE OR SEASON THIS THING! Again no biggie, that thing called the inter-webs and YouTube learned me just fine.
From all the things I've read and videos I've watched it seems to be pretty straightforward on seasoning the humidor. Just because I know who ever is reading this is dying to know the method I took, I guess I'll tell ya. I am only on day 1 but I did wipe the inside down with a distilled water damp sponge, soaked the humidifier in the distilled water until it was ready, and then placed both inside on a plastic baggie to let sit overnight. The hygrometer was climbing from around 50 which shows that it was working. I'll repeat the process for the next 3 days or so or until it holds the humidity at the proper level.
Overall it is a really nice looking humidor and reasonably priced. I have faith in this lil bastard. Ill update once I've used it for a bit and hopefully 5 star this sumbiscuit.
5 Stars, Seasoning was easy, thanks to YouTube. Currently I have roughly 30 cigars inside and humidity is holding between 68-72. Love it.

Other than that, I can't fault the humidor.
