Coolerdor? What is this?

A good friend of mine married into a wealthy family, and his father in law asked if he was interested in a humidor. My friend doesn't smoke cigars, and nor have I in quite some time, but I've been planning to get back in to it. Well he said yes on my behalf,as his father was planning on just trashing it anyway, and this is what showed up.

It says EuroCave, and I looked up EuroCave, but see nothing like it on their website. I'm assuming it's a temperature regulated wine/cigar coolerdor? Anyone seen these before?

Thanks.

Here you go, looks like a converted wine cooler

I gently bent one each into my nostrils, then put the remaining one in my mouf. --droy1958

Yeah I looked at that website, and this exact model doesn't seem to exist?

It seems too official to be converted, like perhaps this is an older model of a humidor they used to sell. It's got a EuroCave name plate on the front. Anyway, looking forward to filling this guy up.

I think what @Fusion means is Eurocave converted it. Wineadors are converted wine coolers. Whether it's done by the buyer or the company itself... It's probably just an older version of their wineador line.

If it holds a seal, you got a winner.

Ah, I understand now. I didn't know that was even an option. Looks neat, hopefully it works.

Thank you.

I had a friend who have something very similar... but could not hold humidity with 15-20 Boveda packs. Hopefully that's not the case with yours!

Finally got the humidor in my possession, but I'm not sure how the trays in the bottom work. They appear to be filled with red rocks? I'm assuming you pour distilled water in those, and they absorb it? I was planning on getting a bunch of boveda packs, but maybe not if these are what I'm supposed to use. Any idea?


Thanks

At one point in time those likely had the green foam and someone converted em over to Kitty litter, that is good! KL starts out white and darkens over the years. Thatís what it looks like to me at any rate, could be wrong.

If I see a stick that made a noob nic sick,I put it on my list as a must try. (UBC03)

Oh that makes sense, forgot all about that. Sweet. So I guess all I need to do is clean this thing up a bit, pour in some water, plug it in and wait.

"Pouring" water over the KL has a bad connotation. You don't want to swamp them. Get a spray bottle, fill it with DW, and spritz the KL to recharge - but don't overdo it.
