I received a twelve count wine cooler for christmas today. I know some of the guys who have them use cedar trays. Where do you get them at and also do you keep the racks that came with it or do you use slats of wood? thanks guys

    Do these things get the 70/70 temp and humidity? esp the temp?

    The temp you can set with the wine fridge... The humidity is what can get wonky with all the differences in ambient temp.

    I found my wine fridge tended to rung HIGH a little when it was on and actively cooling... just buy some beads and don't really fill them much and you should be very good

    why don't you fill them?

    The beads act as a humidifier when needed, but can also absorb humidity if they need to. If the beads are filled to the max, they can't absorb any more humidity, so your humi can become over-humidified.

    Ok, so I've got this question about wineadors that I've been wondering every time I read about them:

    So every time I see talk about converting wine fridges to containers for cigars (heretofore known as "wineadors"), it's basically the same..

    "Don't use the temperature control or humidity control - those cause problems"

    "You're gonna have to figure out something to deal with the excess moisture in there"

    "Go with beads, those are the most stable"

    So basically, you're going to pay for this fancy looking wine-cooler, just to convert it to a makeshift humidor that you're still going to have to buy beads for, have excess humidity to deal with, and have roughly the same capacity as a traditional humidor...and it's going to cost just as much or more than a traditional humidor of the same capacity.

    So am I mistaken here? If I'm not, then what exactly is the point?

    EDIT: This isn't intended as a bash or any form of hostile comment... I'm just seriously baffled.

    Two Words.... Central Air

    I got beetles from too high of a temp during this last summer... I had to make sure that the temp didn't go up at all!!!

    Also, you can get a 28 bottle sized one for under $200 and that will store roughly 1500-2000 sticks... very cheap and cool looking and the only thing you have to do is get beads and old cigar boxes... super cheap, super effective and your cigars NEVER fluctuate (i.e. during the winter they are a little dry unless you check them daily or in the summer they plump up a bit during the rain and the storms...

    These guys work great without fluctuating for outside Rh... It's always a balmy cigar bliss inside!

    Nice post, Lassy. Makes more sense that way. I wonder if I can find a good one on Craig's list... It would be a whole lot nicer looking than my coolidor and would hold a lot more.

    Update on the wineador. I finally got it set up, using slats in place for the racks and trays from another site. I have it seasoned and cigars are chillin happy as can be. I'm really hope it lives up to what I have heard

    How many did you fit in there? And can you take some pics of your setup?

    So am I mistaken here? If I'm not, then what exactly is the point? I kind of agree. I am having problems dealing with my humidity and it may turn out to be a little cheaper but if I can't get the humidity down then the whole thing was a waste of money
