Even on the low end, purchasing cigars can cost you a bit of coin. The last thing you want is for your investment to go to waste. Choosing the best humidor for your needs is something to consider carefully.
Humidors keep your cigars from drying out and going stale. And although there are lots of varieties at all price ranges, you need to consider a few things before making your selection.
Humidors under $50 are good for keeping on your desk, in your office, or closet. They generally hold under 25 cigars at a time and can be made of real wood or synthetic wood. We generally recommend using a real wood (typically Spanish cedar) because the humidity level is easier to control and maintain.
Keep in mind that most of these less expensive humidors don’t come seasoned or with a hygrometer. (To learn how to properly season your humidor, please see our guide, “How to Season Your Cigar”)
