"Great for a while"
I have had three of these and each time they grew mold on them. They work great for a few months but after that each one has molded on me. I have given up on them. Overall a great product I would give it a 3/5 since it does regulate the humidity very well. But the molding issue is a deal breaker for me.

"not happy with it"
not sure if it's my fault or what, but it grew mold on me within days of getting it. rather than having it replaced like i should have, i immediately tossed it bc i didn't want to have the mold anywhere near my cigars. only used distilled water obviously, and it still happened. clearly i'm not happy with the product.

"Worry Free Humidifier"
I have 1 of these for my large travel humidor (150 cigars) and it is working great. After filling, it took about 20 minutes to jell-up. I check it often and it's keeping my level between 72-75%.
Per the directions, DO NOT USE only distilled water. The crystals are specifically designed for use with the solution, not water.

"Top of the line, none better!"
I have tried quite a few different brands, and none can touch Xikar! you want the best? Xikar by far is the best! it hasn't failed me yet. perfect humidification with no problems what so ever!

Definitely works great. I wouldn't suggest this for a 100-count humidor, however. My humidity was too high with it in. (But maybe I filled it with too much distilled water.) Anyway, this humidifier does what it claims. Just have a larger humidor.

"This thing is magic!"
Added distilled water and the little rocks turned into a gel brick. No more baby sitting sponges. Awesome!

"Soft, fresh and no cigar bloom"
Great product, no more watering every few days. Consistant humidity level, no more drip, and water logged stogies. A must for all humidors !!

"Excellent adhesion to humidor top, works w/no drip"
Very nice, but a bit expensive. Use this stuff if you have expensive cigars that need consistantcy.

"Look No Further"
My humidor has about 150 cigars. (19x13x10) I purchased 2 xikar crystal 250s. The house humidity is hovering at about 30% with the furnace constantly running. I layed two of these humidifiers on top of the cigars (Didn't attach them to lid). I tried but the adhesive that came with product is not strong enough to hold them on the lid. They kept falling. Humidity Levels were 75 to 80%. I took one out and now readings are 69 to 70%. My two hygrometers (one on top and one reading floor of humidor are right on the money. Just using distilled water. The construction of these humidifiers are excellent.
