The number one choice that comes out of our minds is the humidor. What many people do not realize is that many cigars keep their humidity level. The reason you need a humidor is to maintain your cigar’s ideal humidity level. Cigars become wet when they go into their humidor and must keep the humidity up or their cigars turn into cigars.
For example, if you smoke a stick of quality cigar and leave it in your humidor all day it will start to dry out after a while. As your humidor gets more humid then it starts to dry out. Therefore, with a humidor, if you’re trying to keep a constant amount of moisture in your cigar you need to be sure you keep it in a way that prevents drying out.
Another common question we get is “Why would I want a humidor?” What we mean by “humidor” is a device that will hold cigars inside while storing your other merchandise. Think of it like a cool box that works like wine coolers do.
You’ll need to find one that fits your needs. The ones that will work best for you are ones that you have, you can smoke directly from and they will not require the use of a water heater. They can also help to regulate the temperature inside and improve the smoking experience. If you have an existing unit, you can even add more heat by moving it up and down. These designs and more are listed below, keep in mind that we do not have a complete selection for every cigar cooler on the market, but we do have a few suggestions to help you decide.
We’ve listed the cigar cooler we are most familiar with so far, but there are many great options for even lesser priced models which will help you smoke the cigars that you want.

The best way to find the right cigar cooler for your home is to look at the following tips:
- Location – A nice cigar cooler should fit your space and be easily accessible: The cooler should be big enough to comfortably hold all your cigars. It can be mounted high enough that you can easily see through to store your cigars and accessories. It should be convenient to use to take your cigars with you; not too far away from your home.
- Price – A good cigar cooler should cost not less than $40.00. The coolest cigar stores often sell for $100 or less.
- Interior layout – You should plan your cigar cooler layout in advance so that your cigars will be stored well in the cooler. For example, consider putting your cigars in a separate pocket, or on the bottom of the cooler in a different place so there is always room to store your cigars.

There are many different brands and prices that you can get a cigar cooler for. You might find the best cigar cooler for $300, $400 or $500. If there is a cigar cooler that is under $200 you might want to look into it.
Best cigar humidors
One of the best thing about buying cigars online is that everyone knows which cigars you should buy, so the only thing you need to do is to pick a cigar cooler on Amazon.
First things first, take a look around your home. Your room, office, or living room should contain the biggest opening that fits one cigar. You should not place a cigar inside an open air vent or window. You should always stick your cigar outside the most vulnerable spaces.
The more a cigar will be exposed to the air, the quicker it will rot. The next important consideration is how wide the cooler is. A 10″x10″ unit with a 2″ opening is more than adequate for all but the largest cigars. You do not want to take more than two cigars in these small cigars. This is not a cigar cooler for the faint of heart. In fact, it will likely be less comfortable than a larger, double-decker cigar case. As for the style, if you’re used to the smooth construction and beautiful finish, a cigar cooler with a classic, modern or retro design is your best choice.
Here are some options to consider:
- Choose a size that allows you to place all of your cigars in one area.
- Choose a size such that the cigars remain evenly spread throughout the center of the cigar cooler.
- Add accessories that will help to support your growing collection, such as a humidor, cigar case, and some custom cigar accessories.
- Choose a cigar cooler from the various brands on our Cigar Cooler Pro Page to determine which model is right for you and your personal preferences.
Why a cigar cooler?
It is great to take your favorite cigar with you to work, class or just keep them hidden for an all day smoke.
How to store cigars:
Keep cigars in the humidor only. Do not remove the humidor lid or allow water to pool inside the box. Do not touch the opening with a towel or cloth. If you have water damage, apply a clear plastic film (we use PEX) around the opening.
You can find a great selection of cigars in this category, and while I have a great cigar and cigar box at home, the selection is not always as extensive on these types of humidifiers. But if you are like us, this is one of the top three or four reasons to purchase a humidifier. While you know you might not always be at home, you get added protection from the inside, and the more cigars that come in, the better.
Are there any benefits to using a humidifier instead of a traditional humidifier?
There are several benefits you will get for not adding a humidifier to your collection. You will not have to worry about losing or losing your cigars when they go bad. If you forget one, you can easily find a new one.
