Daniel Marshall Humidors - Instructions for Use


Instructions for Use 

The Daniel Marshall Humidity Control Regulator


To maintain warranty, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Remove the black DM Regulator from the lid of your humidor. 

  2. Drip into the Regulator approximately one ounce ( 1 / 2 of the Two ounce bottle-1/4 of the Four ounce bottle) of the DM Special Care Solution to charge the Regulator.

  3. Fill the Regulator with approximately 1 ounce of distilled water.

  4. To maintain your humidor, fill the regulator approximately every 4 to 6 weeks with one ounce of distilled water.

  5. Every six months, add one ounce of the DM Special Care Moistener to maintain and recharge the regulator.
If you would like to increase the humidity in your humidor, continue to add distilled water in approximately one ounce increments, until your cigars reach your preferred firmness/softness. Allow three days or so after each additional ounce of water added to allow the box to stabilize. If you would like to decrease the humidity in the box you can add more of the special care moistener in increments of one ounce. The solution's purpose is to regulate the humidity in your humidor by inhibiting the rate at which the water evaporates.

For those special cigars that you want to age and keep for a period of time, I recommend keeping the cigars on the firm side with humidity between 65% and 70%. 

Depending on the size of your humidor it will take approximately 10 to 20 days for your humidor to become fully conditioned. 

The wood absorbs moisture for about two weeks. Once this break in period is complete, your humidor will lock in the humidity and create a stable environment for your cigars. You may put your new Daniel Marshall Humidor to use immediately. We do not recommend wiping the interior of the humidor ( the Spanish cedar) with water as some may suggest to you. We carefully sand smooth the interiors of all our humidors in order to create a completely natural environment for your cigars. Wiping the interior with water will "lift the grain" of the wood making the surface rough and possibly create surface "checking" of the wood. 

DM Hygrometers

The DM German hygrometers we install are the highest quality analog meters made. We advise you to use the meter as a reference point to tell you when you may need to charge your regulator. When your cigars reach your preferred level of moistness, note what the hygrometer reads, and add the distilled water accordingly. 

I do not recommend calibrating the hygrometer. 

Exterior Surface Cleaning

To clean the exterior of your humidor as we do in our factory, I recommend gently wiping it with cotton and rubbing (70%) alcohol to remove any finger prints or debris. 

DM Monthly Magnetic Marking Calendar

The DM Magnetic Marking Calendar strip that is printed with a series of gold numbers is installed inside your humidor. You may use one of the small round disc magnets that are attached as markers to indicate the last time that distilled water was added to the humidification system and the other magnet to indicate when the six month recharge of the special care solution is required. 

Please keep your humidor in a cool as possible place out of any direct sunlight. 

Caution: Do not forget to re-charge the regulator every 6 months with only the DM Brand Special Care Solution and do not fully saturate the regulator with water as this can cause over humidification and create the potential for marks on the wood to develop.

Daniel Marshall Treasure Chest Humidor Review

The #1 Cigar Humidor in the World

The Daniel Marshall Treasure Chest Humidor sold by Cigar Manor and manufactured by Daniel Marshall in Southern California. The treasure chest is a Limited Edition 20th Anniversary humidor in which only 100 are made. This creates a uniquely rare piece of artwork. The Treasure Chest is typically offered in one and only one finish, precious burl wood. (Occasionally Daniel Marshall will produce the treasure chest in Macasser Ebony.)

Daniel Marshall Humidors take nearly four months to create. The rarest, most exotic and brilliantly patterned woods to final lacquering and polishing are personally selected by, yes you guessed it, Mr. Marshall himself.

Before they are shipped out to us, each humidor has passed 175 individual and delicate procedures.

The interior of these ultra premium humidors are built entirely out of untreated Spanish cedar.

Exceptional humidification is achieved by a unique and industry proven self-regulating humidification system device that is time proven and guaranteed to automatically regulate the atmosphere in the humidor at approximately 70%. Over time, this system does not need replacement and requires addition of distilled water or DM's homebrew Special Care Humidifier solution (on a four to six week basis).

The dimensions of the DM Treasure Chest is 17" x 10.5" x 7.5" in size. Offering you ample real estate for storage of your treasures. The humidor is heavy, due to its solid construction and high quality parts such as the hinges and thick lacquer finish. The finish is absolutely perfect as you would expect from a humidor of this caliber, it is so crisp, you can basically use it as a mirror. The design of the Treasure Chest is visually stunning with the craftily created dome shaped top.

The humidification system comes equipped with a custom Spanish Cedar cover, ensuring the proper humidity is reached and maintained. Each treasure chest comes with Two Spanish Cedar Dividers in the lower half of the compartment, a Spanish cedar tray with two Spanish cedar dividers within the tray. Some of the DM Humidors come with an analog hygrometer, all Daniel Marshall Humidors offered by Cigar Manor come from the factory with a digital hygrometer. Also included is Daniel Marshall Special Care Humidifier solution and a bottle to hold distilled water.

Each unit is individually badged with the limited edition #.

This Treasure Chest was featured in Cigar Aficionado, May 1997, third cover as well as in Governor Schwarzenegger's office.

In 2003 this humidor was awarded the No. 1, "A" rating by Cigar Aficionado
