Or you can explain how junky the cheap thermoelectric units are and how they only make good humidors because you keep them at the highest temp, anything in the wine range and they will break in under a year.

Lol. But seriously, they look nice, you can get some super nice custom drawers or you can get basic ones or you can use shelves and boxes. The temp and sealed environment is also great. I'm in Iowa, we go from 70+ RH to 20% during the year (inside).
I have a YETIdor, which is probably more than a wineador. I just got tired of hauling that thing around as it'd heavier than a Godsmack concert and the price is higher than something very high off the ground you put money in(?). It is very stable though and has a great seal.....

Re: Humidor or Wineador

If you plan to freeze everything for beetle prevention, a good-lookin' desktop humidor and cooler combo is the best option, IMO. While I love my humidor and drawers and think it looks great, I essentially paid hundreds for appearances, while the freezing/humidor/cooler combo would have done the same thing for 1/5 of the cost. I regret that I didn't learn about freezing before I built the wineador.

However, if you're NOT gonna freeze, and don't have a cooler basement, a wineador rules!

Re: Humidor or Wineador

I have both. I have an antique china cabinet my son and I converted into a humidor that is lined with Spanish Cedar and holds about 500 sticks. I recently purchased a Winecooler and added spanish cedar drawers that holds about 600 sticks, in which I keep my CCs. I love my humidor, but it is a tad more difficult to maintain as I use beads. The wineador has an active system that kicks on once a month or so, and holds steady at 61% from top to bottom. So, the wineador is much more efficient, but the asthetics an smell of my humnidor is great as well. Sorry, not much help, but I say do both!
