FAQs / What is a cigar humidor and why do I need one?
A humidor is a container that will help to maintain a constant humidity to keep cigars or tobacco fresh. Humidors come in all sizes, shapes, makes and materials. Traditional “fine” humidors are made of wood with a Spanish Cedar lining. Many portable/travel humidors are made of plastic and may have padded interiors. The most kick ass humidors are Ammodors – and are built from re-purposed military surplus ammo cans.
The key to a properly functioning humidor is its seal, meaning making sure there are no gaps or any spaces around the edge of the humidor and that there is a tight seal when the humidor is closed. Ammo cans used for Ammodors come with a air-tight and waterproof rubber gasket in the top lid and make a humidor.
Wood, specifically Spanish Cedar, is best for maintaining your cigars in a humidor. While other materials will maintain a humidity, Spanish Cedar will age a cigar. Learn more why Spanish Cedar is best.
Real humidors will also feature a hygrometer to measure the temperature and humidity of the humidor as well as a humidifier to regulate the humidity of the humidor. Learn more about hygrometers and humidifiers.
Anyone concerned with keeping their cigars fresh and healthy should always store them in a properly humidified humidor like an Ammodor. Never leave them in your car, out in a room temperature environment or in the fridge!
