Random quote: Why pay $100 on a therapy session when you can spend $25 on a cigar? Whatever it is will come back; so what, smoke another one. - Raul Julia

I've put together a small tuppador for my CC collection using this package I found on Amazon. Also using four Boveda 62RH packets. Seems to be keeping right at 62, 63rh. My friend was here last weekend and since he returned home and visited his local B&M, the guy there told him oh no the tuppador will leak plastic chemicals into the cigars etc etc.. they have to be in a wood humidor. I've read of loads and loads of guys keeping cigars in tuppadors with no ill effects/affects . What thoughts might you guys have? After receiving this I did leave the lid off for a while, but did not wash it out and use Dawn and all the other ideas. Too excited to load my few sticks in it and get them resting. There was no plastic smell in this brand container. Cedar tray fit right in.... great little set up actually. What do you think ?

I use tuppadors exclusively inside a wine fridge. Don't have any problems. Some of the older Tupperware did have a plastic smell that i could see harming your cigars so as long as you can't smell any of that I think you should be fine.

Before using my tuppadors I wash them with an odorless dish soap and have not had a problem.

Yeah makes it easy ! The cedar tray is a perfect fit too. And great hygrometer! If I don't stay off FamousSmoke.com I'm going to need another whole setup !
Every time I put in the CG17 code and I see that discount, I tell myself I can't afford NOT to buy these! Crazy huh ?

I have two giant tuppadors and they are perfect. I don't have any cigars resting directly on the plastic. I keep all my cigars in cedar trays or cigar boxes. The tuppador gives you a very controllable environment, and the cedar trays and cedar lined cigar boxes give you humidity stability and great aging flavors. The only problem I have had is humidity getting too high if the lid is too tight of a fit. In my house it seems to work best with a lid that is not super tight. In my opinion, they are the best way to store cigars.

If you have a Container Store close by then you're covered against CAD. They've got a bunch of different sizes - I recently put together a long term again tuperdor using a larger bin.

I started off with 5-6 of those and they worked VERY well. I washed mine out prior to use, but I don't think it will hurt anything if you didn't.

I have 8 tupperdores right now. You don't need the tray IMO. I buy mine from Walmart ( lock and lock) and they go for $5-$10. Add a couple bovey packs and you're set.

Thanks for all the replies. Yeah mine is working good. Have a few CC in there and 62 RH Boveda. Holding great at 62/63.
My wood humidor has six Drymistat sticks in it and holding 64/65. Might end up with Boveda packs in there as well to bring RH to 68? I'll see how it goes. Tuppador works so good but mt glass top wooden humidor looks so good here in living room.
