This is a really nice humidor for the price. Nice looking wood. Nice design. Good solid, tight fitting lid. Holds the humidity very nicely and consistently. I did go to the Humi-Care HX10 Crystal Gel Rectangle Humidifiers (two) to improve the humidification process and accuracy. This is nice enough to place in your front or family room.
It is more than a humidor; it is furniture and a conversation piece. Elegant yet sturdy. I have owned mine for at least 5 years and it is still perfect.
Received my San Marco Humidor in good time and in great condition. Beautiful piece that looks terrific in my sunroom and doubles as an end table between two wingbacks. Followed the usual advice on seasoning by wiping the interior down with a distilled water dampened clean rag, filled the humidification devices, calibrated the analog hygrometer, and found I had to leave the humidification devices out for a couple of days to get the humidity to come back down to 70%. (Was running 80%) Not sure if wiping the cedar down would have been necessary. However, once the humidity is balanced it is perfect for my needs. Complimented by a desktop 20 count humidor for daily smoking, I am good to go. (Now to watch the sales and get it filled)
I have had the San Marco for about a month now and as others have stated with the wipe down procedure I had the same high Rh but after a few days I got it to level out to 70. All in all a very well built humidor and a compliment to any décor. I could not be happier, and a great reason to buy more cigars ( a full humidor is a happy humidor) Thanks CI for the great prices and impeccable service. Merry Christmas to you all
