We have had it for about two years now, and it is arguably the best cigar humidor: made of wood, with no plastic or acrylic components. Case Elegance is easy to set up and maintain. Klaro has made this process user-friendly. There is a printed manual where you can read or scan the QR code and watch videos on how to use your humidor.

Renzo is a handmade wooden construction with lots of real Spanish cedar. This adds a wonderful wood aroma to the experience, but does not detract from the aroma of the cigars. We are pleased that the manufacturer planted a tree when we purchased this humidor, as they are partners with Trees for the Future.

The humidification system is really innovative. You can easily season your humidor with two humidor solutions, a pack of gel crystals, and a hydro tray. The setup takes about six days and seasoning is easy with the propylene-glycol solutions for different climates and seasons. There is also a Hydro Stick to separate cigars with different flavor profiles and quickly adjust the humidity.

It’s nice to be able to take a look at the smooth wrappers and show your friends what you have. So far, the digital hygrometer is working flawlessly and the hinges and cedar coamings still provide a sufficient seal to keep our stogies fresh.

Read our complete review of Case Elegance Renzo.


  • A glass lid
  • Low maintenance and season humidification system
  • Pre-calibrated digital hygrometer that you can check without opening the humidor
  • A drawer for storage


  • There is no lock
  • The disadvantage of the glass lid is that you have to ensure that your humidor is not exposed to direct sunlight
  • No ventilation, so you have to open the humidor lid once a month to ventilate your cigars

Best Value: NewAir 250 Count

NewAir 250 Count

Type: Thermoelectric humidor;

Country of Origin: China;

Capacity: 200-250 cigars, depending on the vitola;

Dimensions, W/D/H: 13.6/19.3/18.5;

Power Supply: 110-120 Volt electricity;

Ventilation: Yes;

Materials: Stainless steel, plastic, cedar, and glass.

Hygrometer: Yes. A digital hygrometer;

Humidifier: No;

Temperature control: Yes. A digital thermometer;

Key Features: Digital hygrometer. Secure lock. Two cedar shelves and one cedar drawer. Soft LED lighting. Digital temperature control from 52-74F.

Check NewAir 250 Count price on:

NewAir has a high-quality door seal that helps maintain the desired temperature and humidity. When you open it, you’ll feel the cedar aroma of the shelves and drawer, mixed with the rich tobacco aroma of your sticks. 

We like the lighting inside, but we wouldn’t put individual sticks on the top shelf, but cigar boxes or boxed cigars. And the built-in fan does a great job keeping all your cigars moist, so you don’t have to open the NewAir 250 Count periodically to give the sticks some fresh air. Thanks to the fan, you also don’t have to rotate and move your cigars around. The humidor is not too loud; the noise level is around 35 dB.

We recommend the NewAir 250 Count with cooling and heating option. Temperature control is a key feature of this cigar humidor. Without it, you will have to monitor the room temperature and where your humidor is placed.

We haven’t smoked a single spoiled cigar that came out of this humidor. It’s good that it has a large storage capacity and can age many cigars well.

Check out our full review of NewAir 250 Count.


  • Tight seal, similar to a refrigerator
  • The humidor maintains a constant temperature
  • Very well built
  • Good looking design


  • The temperature keeps a little lower than the setting
  • It would have been good if there were more slots for the shelves
  • The lighting can be improved

Capacity: 1250 cigars, depending on the vitola;

Dimensions, W/D/H: 26/26/52.75;

Power: 110V power source;

Ventilation: Yes;

Materials: An oak construction, cedar lining, tempered and tinted glass.

Humidifier: Yes;

Temperature control: Yes. A digital thermometer;

Key Features: Four drawers on metal slides. Three adjustable dividers per drawer. Removable tray with two adjustable dividers. Electronically adjustable temperature control. Electronically adjustable humidity control. Condensation control.

Check Redford Lite price on:

The Redford Lite features an electronically adjustable climate control system, making it a highly functional storage that keeps your cigars in good condition. You can save your favorite settings in the system’s memory. The control panel resembles that of a modern oven or refrigerator. 

The built-in LED lighting frame makes it easy for you to show off the beauty of your cigars, day or night. Anything inside is safe with the lock and key. It is suitable for retailers with limited space to display and store stogies. Humidity is also safe thanks to the refrigerator-style door seal.

Conveniently, the drawers slide easily, so you can reach the back of the drawer easily. You can adjust the space in the drawer to suit your needs and keep the different sticks organized. Filling up the water reservoir is a bit of a hassle. It is located in the lower back part of the interior. Another inconvenience is that the control and humidity sensors are located in the back corner and can easily be blocked by cigar boxes, so you will not get accurate readings. But you can live with that when it comes to properly aging so many stogies.

Read our in-depth Redford Lite review.


  • Suitable for a large collection of cigars
  • There is a convenient control panel
  • LED lighting
  • Easy to pull-out drawers
  • The humidor reliably provides a stable internal climate


  • Inconvenient placement on the water reservoir
  • The control sensors can be covered and the temperature and humidity readings will be incorrect

The front-mounted electronic thermo-hygrometer displays internal humidity and temperature. The lid closes well and tightly to keep the humidity where it should be. Even if the digital hygrometer is off by a few percent, it’s easy to calibrate.

Shipping is free for the U.S. and Canadian markets. From what we can tell, Woodronic offers fantastic customer support. 

The cigar accessories drawer with a handle is suitable for placing on the table in your cigar lounge. This way, you can keep all your accessories organized and in one place. A great little cigar humidor for everyday smokes.

Ventilation: No;

Key Features: Sureseal technology ensures a flawless seal. One cedar tray and three removable cedar dividers. The surface is scratch resistant. Lock, key, handles, and a plaque that you can engrave.

Check Deauville Tobacco Leaf prices on:

This is something for lovers of classic aesthetics. The gold-colored hardware is not only a nice detail that contrasts with the dark finish, but also a useful feature. Especially when you need to move the humidor filled with sticks, the handles are a great help.

The florist foam humidifier is a green foam that florists use to keep plants moist. In Deauville, it is placed inside a plastic container. In hot, dry weather, you will need to humidify it once a week with a propylene glycol solution or add a 69% Boveda pack. Like any kiln-dried cedar humidor, the Deauville needs to be properly set up before you put your sticks in it. This takes about a week or two.

We like this humidor for cigars because it is aesthetically pleasing and comparatively inexpensive for such a storage capacity.

Check our in-depth review of The Deauville Tobacco Leaf.


  • Excellent seal
  • Stores about a cigar per dollar
  • Fascinating classic look
  • No power supply is needed
  • Convenient handles
  • Lock and key to keep your things safe


  • Some of the glue seams are visible.
  • The humidification system needs to be refilled weekly
  • No ventilation system

Materials: Ebony veneer, Spanish cedar lining, acrylic glass, brass hardware.

Hygrometer: Yes. A digital thermo-hygrometer;

Humidifier: Yes. Double crystal gel humidifier;

Temperature control: Yes. A digital thermo-hygrometer;

Ventilation: No;

Key Features: Digital hygrometer. Double humidifiers. Tight magnetic door. Brass quadrant hinge that absorbs shocks. Three large drawers.

Check Woodronic Axinite price on:

The entire interior of the Axinite A5045 is made of cedar and the exterior is made of natural ebony veneer. When you lift the humor, you can notice that it is quite heavy if it is made of plywood. This handmade gem is full of elegance and sophistication. In addition to its style, the Woodronic Axinite offers a larger storage capacity organized in three 8.25×7.25×3.5 drawers. This is the largest Woodronic humidor.

Axinite’s humidifying system consists of two crystal gel humidifiers that provide even humidity. The humidor seal ensures that the freshness and aroma of your cigar collection is safe. Perhaps the tight seal is why this unit’s fast humidity setup and seasoning.

And the built-in hygrometer works flawlessly. We compared it to our trusty SMARTRO SC42 Professional Digital Hygrometer. For three days, the two hygrometers had the same readings. With this humidor, we showed our picky and petty side to write “cons.”

Thanks to the front-mounted hygrometer, you can keep an eye on the humidity inside without having to open the unit. The felt-lined drawer lets you store your lighters and cutters in one place.

The kiln-dried cedar interior takes about two weeks to acclimate for the first time. With the Solana humidor, we recommend calibrating the hygrometer every month or two. Also, we prefer the Boveda packs to the rectangular humidifier to maintain the required moisture.

Humidifier: Yes. A bar humidifier;

Temperature control: No;

Check Scotte price on:

When it comes to travel humidors, Scotte is one of our favorites. It’s sturdy and keeps our stogies safe when we are traveling or want to have a few stogies with us during the day. The leather look makes it the ideal companion for business meetings and smoking with your partners.

You moisten the humidifier bar with a dropper and distilled water. Be careful not to soak the bar, so that it leaks in the humidor. If you drip too much water, let the bar on a paper towel before reinserting it. You will get accurate readings if you calibrate the hygrometer every three months or before long trips. 

The leather gives the humidor a classy look and feel. And the seal is perfect for keeping the flavor of the sticks inside fresh.

Have a look at our comprehensive Scotte Humidor review.


  • Sturdy and durable
  • Compact
  • It provides sufficient storage for its size


  • A handle would be helpful to transport the humidor without an additional bag

Compressor cooling and a heater provide the right temperature to keep your stogies fresh. The humming noise of this Newair is 43 dB. They say this kind of humidor is suitable for retailers and lounges, but they are also good for passionate cigar collectors. 

Like the other Newair cigar humidors, this one offers a perfect seal. This makes setup and seasoning quick. The plastic container can be filled with humidity beads or distilled water, but we prefer a Boveda humidity pack.

Whatever other experts say, we strongly recommend that you season this humidor before using it. That way, you can be sure that the cedar tray will not drain the moisture from your cigars. We seasoned our 2021 Boveda Humidor for seven days with the Boveda 84% Seasoning Kit, especially if you live in a dry climate. 

Even though we love handmade wooden humidors, we have to admit that this acrylic version is very practical to use and maintain. And it works really well. The seasoning is up to you, it is not mandatory. And if it wasn’t for the extravagant aesthetics, we would recommend this humidor as one of the top humidors.

Season it for two weeks, add ten drops of distilled water to the humidifying bar, and you will have smokable cigars for a long time.


  • Affordable option
  • Convenient size to use as a desktop unit or a travel humidor
  • Sleek design

The Humidors That Didn’t Make It To The List

The TISFA Cigar Jar and N/C Cigar Humidor didn’t hold humidity well, moisture leaked out and their hygrometers showed quite different results compared to our control SMARTPRO hygrometer.

How Did We Rate and Rank the Humidors?

We have drawn the decisive criteria that make a cigar humidor a quality product in which to store and age your stogies:

Seal and Lid

This is the key feature that provides humidity retention. The good seal and sturdy lid prevent the temperature from fluctuating too much. If your sticks are not stored in the right conditions, they will lose their essential oils and will no longer be suitable for smoking. Not to mention the aging of your cigar collection. The humidor is not on our “Best” list if there is no tight seal.

Materials Used

The materials used for a humidor affect its quality on several levels. First, humidity and temperature retention and maintenance. Second, durability and robustness. And last but not least, the aesthetics. We all look for these qualities when we choose a humidor.


Although it may seem like a repetition of the above criteria, this is not the case. Temperature is equally important for the storage and aging of cigars. Good insulation ensures a stable temperature in the humidor, regardless of the climate fluctuations outside. High-quality insulation helps maintain humidity and protects your cigars from the harmful factors of the environment. This includes crushing your cigars when it comes to travel storage units.

Capacity and Dimensions

Optimal storage capacity in relation to external dimensions is a sign of high-quality design. This is the essence of the art of humidor construction: maximum insulation and large storage capacity in a compact size. This ratio is important when you choose a humidor for your home.


In short, you will use your humidor for many years, so its maintenance must be convenient. This feature speaks of the quality of the unit in terms of design, construction, and materials. The humidor should be easy to clean and season for long-term storage. If it is difficult to clean and season the humidor, it may affect the conditions for your cigars.

Price/Quality Ratio

Do we need to explain this? This feature is important because nobody likes to buy an expensive item that is a waste of money and time. Besides, you run the risk of ruining some valuable cigars. On the other hand, a cheap humidor is hardly a high-quality, long-lasting product. And materials that last a long time and high-quality design are very expensive for manufacturers.

Extra Features

Additions to the main feature usually improve the overall product and make it better to use. Features like adjustable legs, lighting, or handles help make the humidor more enjoyable to use. Not only do we look for them, but we also appreciate the benefits of each additional feature. For example, a built-in punch is not as useful to us as adjustable legs, for example.


The presentation of a product makes the difference between a simple wooden box and the best humidor for cigars. The storage unit is an important part of the cigar lifestyle and cigar lovers are known to appreciate quality and good-looking products. That’s why we consider how manufacturers present their products to such an attentive audience as cigar aficionados.

What Is the Best Brand of Humidors for Cigars?

What Kind of Humidor is Best?

The best humidor is the one that suits your needs: a desktop, a travel humidor, and so on.

How Much Should You Spend on a Humidor?
