NewAir CC-300H Humidor

You expect your humidor to humidify—hence the name—but what about the havoc that temperature shifts can wreak on your cigar collection? Blasting the AC in the summer and cranking up the heat in the winter can make your precious sticks swell, crack, develop mold, or, worst of all, suffer a dreaded beetle outbreak. NewAir, a maker of heating and cooling appliances, thinks your humidor should regulate its own temperature.

With both heating and cooling elements under electronic temperature control, the company’s 400-count CC-300H humidor maintains optimal conditions all year long. Set the digital thermostat to your desired temperature and the humidor will handle the rest, working day and night to achieve that internal climate for your cigars. The humidor’s thermostat adjusts between 60° to 74° F. (For everyday cigar smoking, we recommend setting the temperature between 65° to 70° degrees, but for aging you might want to set it a bit lower.) An internal fan gently moves the air, allowing for even temperature distribution throughout.

The CC-300H measures 20.8 inches deep by 18.2 inches wide by 29.1 inches high and weighs 45 pounds. Shorter and smaller than a full-sized tower or cabinet humidor, it still offers plenty of space for your cigars—especially compared to a desktop humidor.

Behind the tempered glass door are Spanish cedar drawers and shelves. As well as emitting a pleasant aroma, they assist in humidity control. The humidification container can be filled with distilled water, humidity beads or gel, but we found a Boveda humidity pack (available on the NewAir website) on each shelf to be best.

The humidor, which retails for $599.95, has yet another cigar-security device: a lock and key mechanism to protect your cigar collection from prying fingers.
