From the Manufacturer
Whether you are a true cigar aficionado or a casual enthusiast, the Whynter CHC-120S Stainless Steel 1.2 cu. ft. Cigar Cooler Humidor is an ideal cigar storage system that can help preserve the flavor of your cigars and protect them from pests or other harmful conditions. It is designed to help store and age cigars within the optimal humidity range of 62% to 75% at room temperature. This cigar cooler humidor contains a humidification tray (for use with preferred solution/moisture beads) and equipped with an elegant analog hygrometer which helps monitor the desired level of humidity. Having a temperature controlled environment is also critical for discouraging the proliferation of any pests that may be present in tobacco leaves. The thermoelectric cooling system used here minimizes the drying effect when cooling, relative to the compressor based cooling systems in many refrigeration units. Furnished with two Spanish Cedar flat shelves and a spacious drawer, the Whynter CHC-120S helps maintain humidity, emits a light complementary aroma, and helps repel damaging insects. In addition to its main purpose of storing, preserving, and aging cigars, the Whynter Cigar Cooler Humidor is also an attractive and elegant showcase for your prized collection.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Packaging was great. They had the unit surrounded by Styrofoam then boxed in its manufacturing box. That box was again surrounded in Styrofoam and placed in a secondary larger box. They meticulously taped the door shut as to not open during unwrapping. Inside the cooler, in the sliding drawer, I found the owners manual, door handle, hardware to install handle, how to guide for using the cooler, and even a second hydrometer.
Setup was easy. Literally took it out of the box, used the supplied screws and washers to attach the handle, poured the distilled water into the plastic tray they supply, and am currently letting it season. I have not checked the calibration yet of the hydrometer that it came with but will update when I do.
Temperature control seems to be spot on. It tells you what the temp is inside passively. When it first was turned on it was around 73 degrees inside and on the display. I turned the system down to 63 degrees (based on the parchment you get with cigars that states the optimal cigar temperature). It quickly flashed back to show 73 degrees but soon started to work its way down to the setting I had selected.
Humidity supply - I'm currently still debating on either Boveda bags or Xikar crystals. The purpose for me spending the money on a temperature controlled unit was to have a set-it and leave-it set up which requires a 2-way humidity system that both can produce. Since my main goal will be aging of my high end Cuban cigars I don't want an active humidifier (I.e. oasis type) as they tend to place water vapor into the air vs allowing the air to become humid passively. Over the long term aging is best done passively.
**UPDATE** It's been 5 days since I plugged this unit in and began seasoning the humidor. I allowed the seasoning process 4 days to ensure the cedar absorbed the proper amount of moisture. During the seasoning it reached 80% RH. Before placing any cigars in, on day 4 I placed in two 4 oz. jars of Xikar crystal humidifiers rated at 70% RH. It took about half a day for the RH to lower and that's when I placed my two boxes holding about 35 cigars inside. After the first night I'm holding perfect at 70% RH!
Pictures provided: first is right out of the box. Second is after plugged in first day. Third and fourth are of today (day 2). I will wait 4 days before opening again to allow the cedar to fully season. **please note that other reviews have shown that the drawer is not as pictured. However mine is exactly as pictured. If yours is not I'd send it back as perhaps it's built wrong.**
**UPDATE** new photos: #5 - day 3 of seasoning at 80%RH. #6 - day 4 placing two 4 oz. jars of Xikar humidifiers in. #7 day 5 at 70% RH loaded with two boxes (approx. 35 cigars). #8 day 5 complete setup 70% RH @ 64 degrees.
**UPDATE** It's now October 6th and the humidity hasn't changed one bit. I've opened this thing up about 10 times for adding more cigars and taking some out and zero change in humidity! Temp is holding great at 64º with only a few times I've walked by and found it displaying 66º, and one time 63º. It adjusted itself with in a few minutes and I'm totally fine with a degree or two fluctuation. Cigars that come out of this unit smoke BEAUTIFULLY.
P.s. if you read the whole review thank you for your time. Such an investment I really wanted a detailed review for others.
When the unit arrived, it looked like it had been dropped from 30,000 feet. The outer and inner packing boxes were dented and torn. The unit itself had a dent in the door. So I requested a replacement from Amazon. Two days later, a pristine unit arrived. So be aware of this.
I removed and performaed a full seasoning of the cedar shelves and drawers using Boveda 84% humidity packets (four in a large storage tupperware) for 10 days -- as you would for a regular humidor. I also wiped the interior a number of times with distilled white vinegar and distilled water. This may be overkill, but I wanted to make sure no plastic smell was present. I also calibrated the analog hygrometer using salt and distilled water, even though I have two digital units. I'm also using 65% Heartfelt humidity beads in the container provided.
I started adding cigars about 10 at a time over a week, to allow proper equilibration. I have two 25 count boxes, one 10 count box, and several dozen single.
Two months after:
The wineador is working wonderfully. I actually don't have it plugged in, as the temperature in the office is about what I want; I will plug it in in the spring and summer. The seal of the door is great. Humidity fluctuations are non-existent. I'm actually using weather station RH/Temp. sensors, as I'm an atmospheric scientist; they allow me to monitor remotely when I travel! I have a wireless switch that can turn the unit on, as I was away for a few weeks over the holidays. It really is a remarkable unit and it looks elegant and classy as well!
It is now August 25th, 2016 ... almost 18 months after my initial review! The wineador is working flawlessly; I have had no problems. One thing to note. Make sure you clean the outside of the cooler, especially the back vents. Pet hair likes to collect here. I've added a wireless switch to the outlet and wireless temp./humidity sensor, too (accessible from my iPhone or Mac). If I ever travel for more than a week, I can monitor the readings inside and turn the unit on or off if needed. However, I have never had a problem with keeping the inside environment just right. I prefer 65F and 65% humidity. My house was built in 1929 and is quite drafty. The wineador has been a blessing. Cheers!
That being said, the unit is spacious and of overall good quality. The LED light on the inside doesn't light more than the top drawer, however. It would be nice to see this redesigned to provide light throughout the unit rather than one small portion. It is a very clean exterior design and the door fits nicely on the unit.
Overall, I'm pleased with the unit. Stuff goes bad-it's only mechanical. What's important to me is how quickly Whynter, and my contact, Ruth G., stepped up to the plate to back their product and are taking care of this for me. That speaks volumes.

A plastic cup that you fill with water is the only source of humidity, no fan nothing.
It’s a wine cooler with a cup of water.
However, working with Amber R. at Whynter was a delight.Read more
