Forcite’s jar works best because it’s airtight; nothing more complicated than that. Of course, it isn’t a beautiful piece of furniture, so let’s turn to the lovely item on display. It has two major shortcomings: first the analog hygrometer. For the price they’re charging, a digital hygrometer is mandatory. They have this advantage over the analog ones: they work. By the way, Forcite, your humidity is a bit high in that jar; it should never exceed 69%. Next: notice the humidifying device on the lid of the lovely wooden box. It contains florist foam, and that’s the best way to help your cigars develop a lovely mold. When they do, you can throw them in the garbage. It’s a good way to rotate your stock. Better to include a holder for Boveda packs; they maintain perfect humidity. Now as to RayF’s screed: in a word, mind your own business. I’ve been smoking pipes and cigars for slightly under 60 years. And in my thirties and forties was running ten miles per day. In my early seventies I was biking 50 miles daily. Addicted to smoking? In love is more like it. Some days I smoke, some days I don’t. As far as the information RayF is conveying—nothing we haven’t heard before. Smokers need to be careful about their oral hygiene, and my dentist says that if I hadn’t told him that I’m a pipe/cigar smoker, he would never have known. It’s a hobby, my boy, and I get to choose my hobbies, not you. And by the way, it’s a darned sight safer than rock climbing, or for that matter, the high speed bicycling I also love so much.
