Cigar Humidor Tray - Do I need one?
Not all Cigar Humidors come with built in trays. Humidors of all different sizes come both with and without them. So the question still remains, do I need one?
The larger the humidor, it is highly suggested that a tray is used. Well why is this? The answer is simple, a tray allows for better organization of your cigars and allows the air to circulate better throughout the cigar humidor. Occasional cigar rotation is recommended, keeping the relative humidity levels as even as possible. It is a well known fact that the cigar humidor is actually a micro-climate within its own. Humidity levels tend to vary throughout with higher levels near the humidifier itself.
Some Humidor Trays have more slots than others, this is to increase airflow.
Some Humidors offer a split style tray, Adorini does this quite often.
Regardless of your decision, it is important to understand the simple concept of utilizing a humidor tray to ease organization and maintaining the rotation schedule of your cigars. Ultimately, keeping the humidity levels as uniform as possible when storing your cigar investment.
