Just received it ...First thing is the hydrometer does not hold, the magnet is to weak. second ...is it does not seal tight. Spanish cedar has a very distinct smell. Which i come to love the hint of cedar adds to my sticks. I am sure the lining is made of cedar but don t know why it does not have the cedar smell. I won it on auctioneer for $6 so not really disappointed.

Way too big. They need to put the dimensions in the description!!! I put it in with my calibrated one and even after calibrating it was still 15% off. At 70% it read around 90%. Re-calibrated and the closest I got it was within 8%. Big, bulky, and hard to calibrate. I wouldn't recommend this one.
Great humidor, but buy a large electronic humidistat. Small ones have a hard time keeping up. Famous has plenty to choose from, just get it when you start out and you will love this for years!
Really nice hygro. Quite large though; not for small humidors. It is fully re-calibratible, includes instructions. It's definitely a steal at $15.95!
I am quite happy with the humidor itself. It looks very nice, has the capacity I was looking for, and the door and drawer seem to have a good seal. However, the Don Salvatore website says this humidor comes with the Cigar Oasis Plus Electronic humidistat; whereas, the one that shipped from Famous Smoke Shop had only a cheap rectangular foam-filled humidifier which is insufficient to keep a humidor of this size humidified. Be prepared to buy 3-4 large jars of humidifying gel or invest extra money in a humidistat like the Cigar Oasis. But besides this, I am quite happy with the humidor.
Be advised, the diameter of this hygrometer is 3 inches. Most humidors supply a SMALL (1.75") hygrometer. This may prove to be a problem if your humidor has an existing, SMALL, external hygrometer. Be sure you take into account the clearance between the lid and/or the bottom of your humidor's existing hygrometer hole. With the larger size of this hygrometer, it may overlap onto the humidor lid, or even, cause a clearance problem with the bottom of the humidor.
This is a nice travel box holds temperature well and easy to care for. I can get about 10 Kuba Kuba in there comfortable.
Comes with the hygrometer and humidor, and good amount of space. Great product overall!
This is the first humidor I ever bought. I got it from my local stogie shop and have been pleased with it from day one. No, it's not the biggest one by any means, but it's great for the occasional cigar smoker, or for someone going out of town for a little while who won't need one of those bullet-proof humidors. Great for the money, and keeps the cigars at near perfect 70/70 as far as I have observed. I highly recommend it.
I was also a little skeptical at first, but I figured I would pick one of these up because I just cannot stand a stick with a tight draw. I've had a few occasions to use it, and each time it works like a charm - makes a good difference. Just take your time and go slow. A must have accessory!
