Sleek and Efficient Humidor
The JFK humidor arrived in perfect condition. The finish is sleek and flawless. I seasoned it with a seasoning wipe and added an extra humidification jar. Within 2 hours it reached 72% humidity, and has been easily kept at that level for months by adding a little distilled water occasionally, as needed. My cigars have remained at the proper level of moistness.I believe that the humidor is an excellent value.

Solid Humidor
Used the seasoning wipes. After 2 days the humidity was holding at 73 %. After my first month of use it holds between 73-75% humidity and 73 degrees internal temp. The hygrometer is inaccurate and it cannot be adjusted. It reads approx. 10% lower than actual. I purchased an electronic hygrometer for use on the inside of the unit. The hygrometer is the only reason I didn't rate 5 stars.

Great for the money, but
The hygrometer doesn't work. Wish they had sent the money there, instead of the cheesy lock & key!

Solid Buy
I bought this humidor because my other, larger one was running over, plus I needed to hide some cigars from my wife. It's a great buy and well constructed with the looks to match.

Good Humidor, Great Value
I have owned this humidor for almost a year now and I am very happy with it. The humidity stays perfect around 70-71 for a long time without adding any juice. I found that if you only put one divider in and store them long ways you can fit over 80 robusto size, 54 ring cigars. This humidor seals very well, in fact if you put the lid down very slowly it won't even close all the way. If you do the test of dropping the lid, it will stop and then close slowly the rest of the way, showing a good seal. Seasoning was easy to do, I got the wipes and followed the directions for them and I was up and running in a few days with no problems. The lock had to be adjusted slightly to get it to work, but an easy bend and all was good. The look is nice and I like to be able to look at the humidity level as I walk by without having to open the lid. This is a perfect starter humidor, but if you are a serious cigar smoker I would recommend a larger humidor. Even as a person who has smoked cigars, but never owned a humidor I find it difficult to not run out of room. From now on I load it up with what I like and leave the samplers with the less desirables on the store shelf.

Great looking Humidor. Not so good Hygrometer.
The JFK Humidor looks great. After seasoning, using the boveda seasoning pack for two weeks, it's perfect. With a new digital hygrometer, my readings are at a perfect 70. Had the analog hygrometer worked, I would've given this product 5 stars. Overall a great purchase. Superb delivery, order on item before 3pm, received it the next day with standard shipping.

OK humidor but need additional investment to keep the proper humidity
Decent build but need additional humidifier to do proper job, the one that comes with it just isn't enough. After adding humidifier does an OK job!

Awesome humidor
Just received my humidor yesterday and it's awesome. It looks very beautiful with the dark wood and gold accents. After seasoning it and charging the humidifier...it only took about 6-8 hours to read at a perfect 70 percent...checked it again this morning and still the same. I would definitely recommended this product and you can't best the price.

A great humidor for the money!
A great humidor for the money. It was up and running in two days and has held perfect since. 50-70 capacity is realistic. Beautiful box, my wife really likes it, which is a plus!

An Average piece
Overall a good quality humidor. Wood and painting are good, however: - the sticky part of one of the two wooden separators went off during installing it. I was inserting it very gently. - The analog hygrometer can go out easily. I don't know whether it is air tight or not. Calibrated it along with a digital hygrometer, both were of the same reading after calibration for a while before the analog one dros like 9-10% - the key is very funny. - I'm not saying it's bad but it's for sure not a high quality piece

JFK Humidor 70
Used the wipe down method once and it has been holding 70-75% percent humidity ever since. Very roomy and holds a good amount of sticks. Perfect for my stash.

Quality made affordable
What a box! The JFK replaced my first, fifty-count humidor when my collection outgrew it. I seasoned the box for around a week, primed it by throwing in some cheaper cigars, and then moved in the premiums for good. This thing holds at a steady 70-73% humidity, has a tight seal, and is quite roomy. If your're looking for a medium sized humidor at a good price look no further!

What a Nice Humidor!
For me, this is an excellent humidor. For sixty bux, I'm not gonna go thru the interior with a fine toothed comb to find and point out imperfections! I seasoned it, and it holds temperature and humidity amazingly well! I've had and used mine for about a year and a half, it does everything I need it to...which, I admit, ain't much...and I store my sticks with confidence in it! In fact, I'm gonna get another one. I really would like one for the 'sticks never to be shared', and for the 'gars for the world'. Very rude to keep them in the same place and offer a stogie to someone while sayin' "Well, you can have one of these but hands off of these'. Plus, I tend to exceed capacity from time to time, so...time for a new one! Anyway, I recommend one of these to anybody. If you prefer the smaller ring gauges, like up to fifty, it'll probably hold seventy sticks, no problem. But I like bigger ones...in the fifty to sixty range...so usually, sixty or so is all I can cram into it.

Great Product!
Great product! This humidor is beautiful and eligant. I seasoned it in 72 hours and it holds perfectly at 70% humidity. You want be disappointed with this purchase, it is large and roomy for all your sticks. As an everyday smoker myself, I am well satisfied. Thanks CI for offering such great products at reasonable prices, I will be a customer for life.

Not bad....
This Humidor is not bad. Holds humidity level just fine, but has some rough interior areas that could have been easily sanded down... Furst purchase from CI that I haven't been 100% satisfied.

JFK Box Works Like A Charm
After disappointing performance from two previous types of humidors, I must say that I am very please so. Very well constructed and nice, tight closure. Works like a charm.
Customer Testimonials
Got mine in today as a birthday gift from my girlfriend. Looks and feels great! Nothing like some of the cheap ones I've had before. The finish is really more of a red cherry which I like. I am calibrating the hygrometer now and can't wait to get my favorite sticks in there.
This is my first humidor, so I have nothing to compare it to. With this in mind, I think it is working as intended. The Mrs. likes the looks of it and doesn't mind it sitting on the dresser. Unlike some, I have found the dial hygrometer to work just fine. I used the "salt and water method" to calibrate it. With a Humi-Care bead jar inside, it holds at 70% on the dot. If open for a while, it will drop and then recover right to 70 again when closed. The fit and finish are quite nice.
First humidor and also got a digital hygrometer and a Humi-Care HX-10 as upgrades, and some seasoning wipes. Two or three days later we were calibrated and ready to go. Has held at/near 70% for a couple weeks, now. Seals well upon closing. Nice little desktop/starter humidor. I have about 60 sticks in it and holds that amount just fine. No downside at this price.
After seasoning, doing a great job so far. Great looking, holds all my smokes easily. Very happy so far!
THIS IS ONE GREAT HUMIDOR DOES EVERYTHING ITS SUPPOSED TO DO AND LOOKS GREAT .FOLLOWED THE CI DIRECTIONS ABOUT SEASONING PUT MY HUMICARE CRYSTALS IN IT AND IN 48 HOURS IT WAS READY FOR MY CIGARS
I freaking love this humidor! Just got it in 4 days ago, seasoned it for 24 hours and calibrated the analog hygrometer the same night. The box is holding good at 72 humidity with the gel beads it came with. My only suggestion is to add a digital hygrometer to your order just incase. Its been holding steady for 3 days now and I can't find a single bad thing to say about it. If you're looking for a nice medium humidor for your office or bedroom stash... This one is it!!
It came in the mail earlier than expected and it seasoned in a couple days. The analog hygrometer that comes with it is useless, definitely get a digital hygrometer. It has been holding a steady 71% since I seasoned it and I am putting cigars in it today. It also looks great sitting on the desk, I haven't had an inspector complain about it yet, so all is well.
Nice look and nice size. The hygrometer needs a little calibrating,(try the salt test). Worth the price. Get one.
Awesome product. Sturdy, executive looking and alot of room
As previously noted, if you season this humidor a couple of days before adding your stogies, you will find it really does the job well. Of sad note is that the hygrometer, while decorative, is non-functional. Either get a digital one, or some Humi-care products. Storage space is good, and fits churchill sizes just fine. If you keep smoke large gauge cigars, it will probably not hold 70 of them. But for like 50 ring size, it does wonderfully. It looks grand and has that all important "key lock" to keep small unwary fingers out of it. CI did an excellent job of getting it here to me quickly and in excellent condition.
This is my sixth humidor ,its one of the best (JFK Humidor 70).Seasoned it for two days it went to temp and has stayed there. great humidor!
