Overview of Features
The whole point of having a humidor is to keep cigars as they should be, and not affected by excess humidity on the one hand, or dryness on the other. This humidor from Ducihba achieves that, thanks to the humidifier, but more importantly, the real Spanish cedar wood interior.
While the cedar wood is doing its work inside, the cherry colored finish on the exterior is doing its job, in terms of making this a very attractive humidor. This is helped in part by the brass trim, but also the glass top. This turns the humidor into a display for your cigars, and thus allows it to sit on any desk or bureau.
On the front, there is a hygrometer housed in the brass trim we mentioned which once again is a feature that has a function, but which also adds to the overall visual appeal of this cigar humidor.
How to Use It
There is not really a lot required in terms of setting this up, but we will go through them, nonetheless.
The divider and humidifier need to be positioned inside the humidor. Normally, that means on the left-hand side, leaving a large space for the storage of your cigars on the right. Thereafter, the hygrometer will need to be slotted into its round slot in the front of the humidor.
As a visual check to see if the humidor is at the correct humidity levels you should check the hygrometer regularly. The optimum level is 70%.
Above this, there is too much humidity in the box, below this and it is too dry. If it does drop below, try adding distilled water to the humidifier. If too high, then you should dry off any excess moisture inside
Other than the occasional wipe with a dry cloth to remove any dust from the exterior surfaces, there is not really any other maintenance required.
