Hard to keep humidity. Took me 2 crystal gel jars - 2 oz and 4 oz plus humifier included to reach 70/70.
No glue smell at all. Smells like cedar? The hygrometer is junk, though, so you'll have to buy one that works. I've had it a week now and it seems to be doing fine. More later in six months.
Smells pretty strong like wood glue
This is not my first humidor. I purchased the Milano additional humidor so that I would be able age my cigars longer. After two months of use the screws pulled out of the lid and the lid fell off. I did not over humidify and I did not put stress on the lid. Before I purchased this humidor I had been using the same very inexpensive humidor with no brand name that I considered to be cheaply built, until I bought the Milano humidor. This Milano humidor wins the prize for "cheaply built junk." Save your money. Wait for a sale and buy a humidor built by a reputable manufacturer.
Good product and good looking humidor. After a good seasoning this box works really well.
This was my first humidor, which at the time was a pretty good bargain, but I've found others that hold more for less money, and it sells under the Famous brand. This humidor holds 75 realistically. The biggest downfall about this humidor is the humidifier that comes with it. Ditch it and pick up a Xikar crystal humidifier, the 100 count will suffice. If you want more reliability, upgrade to a digital hygrometer capable of calibration. With said upgrades, you've got a great humidor.
This thing is nice, but 75 to100 cigars! No way not even close......... They should use a variable like it will hold 100 5x50's or something! Very misleading to say the least!
