If this doesn’t make you want to buy a Liebherr humidor

August 10, 2011

Warners’ Stellian brought in a custom cigar roller for an event we hosted last week, and the cigars were a hit.

Many of us had never smoked a freshly rolled cigar, nor watched the process, so it was certainly a treat.

Our Liebherr humidor XS200 wasn’t for sale (photo left), as this was a trade association event, but it was such a hit, we actually sold some right there. While it doesn’t come with a custom cigar roller, the Liebherr humidor is the perfect addition to any cigar aficionado’s collection.

Christmas-Holiday gift ideas

December 15, 2010

Because most people don’t shop till now anyway, I’m not even going to call this last-minute. But here’s a roundup of unique gift ideas for the people in your life worth gifting to!

For the wine lover, a 16-bottle countertop wine cooler:

For your wino friends (or wannabe winos), this compact wine cooler ($150) stores and displays 16 bottles behind a sleek, mirrored finish door. Adjust temperatures for various wines with the soft touch controls with digital display.

For the tailgater, a mini LP grill:

How awesome would this Weber Q gas grill ($150) be for all those early morning grill outs and picnics? It’s also a very discreet option for those whose apartments or condos don’t allow grills (speaking from experience). This mini grill crams 889 sq. inches of cooking space into a 27″x16″ footprint of only 60 pounds. And you can purchase the optional Weber Q Grill rolling cart for $45.

For the new homeowner or pet owner, a HEPA vacuum cleaner:

For friends and family who’ve recently gained a furry friend, the Dyson Animal DC25 ($550) is probably the ultimate gift. This root cyclone vacuum is designed for homes with pets and is certified asthma and allergy friendly with a washable lifetime HEPA filter.

Miele vacuums, rated to last 20 years, are a great gift for someone just starting out in her home. Plus, they come in cute colors, like this Miele Polaris vacuum in light blue ($399). I’ve blogged about them before, because I love how quiet they are, how well they clean, and how long they last.

Plus, all of our vacuums ship for free nationwide. If you hurry, you could still get it by Christmas!

For the grilling enthusiast, the ultimate smoker:

There aren’t many grills that produce the a fanatic with their own name, like the Big Green Egg does. “Eggheads” rave that this ceramic smoker is the ultimate for meats, fish, vegetables and any other creation grillers cook up.

The Large Big Green Egg (shown, $750) — which is the most popular size — can cook:

  • 20-pound turkey
  • 12 burgers
  • 6 chickens vertically
  • 8 steaks
  • 7 racks of ribs vertically

For the cigar aficionado, a sophisticated stainless steel humidor:



The Liebherr humidor XS-200 is definitely one of those big, spendy holiday gifts, at $2,599. But it’s completely distinctive, with European-style stainless steel and glass displaying cigars housed with premium preservation elements (humidity, temperature and hygienic conditions).

Liebherr cigar humidor blows no smoke

April 15, 2010

We’ve seen growing online interest in Warners’ Stellian’s Liebherr Cigar Humidor in the past month. I figured I’d learn about this product that’s enjoyed such a spike in orders.

Liebherr is a German company known as a high-end refrigeration specialist. Its XS 200 is a quality glass-front humidor that not only delivers the electronic humidor preservation a cigar lover looks for, but its styling looks totally distinctive.

When I think of a cigar humidor, I think of a wooden box-style humidor of my dad’s that used to sit on an end table in our house. (Not the most attractive showpiece.)

The XS200, on the other hand, has Liebherr’s sleek, European styling and a stainless steel — not wood — cabinet. Spanish cedar wood is used for the shelving and is removable if desired or for cleaning.  After its recent European launch, the XS 200 won a prestigious red dot award for design.

But prettiness aside, humidity and temperature control are the main reasons for a humidor. Without humidity and temperature control, your cigars could suffer an outbreak of tobacco beetles, whose voracious appetite could ravage your collection.

How do you feel about sharing your cigar collection with this cuddly fella?

Liebherr’s MagicEye control system, with three control circuits and four fans, allows individual settings for humidity (between 68%-75%) and temperature (between 61 degrees and 68 degrees).

The integrated water tank holds distilled water regulated by sensors and a visual display, which alerts the owner to refill. Liebherr’s humidor responds to a change in humidity and temperature within minutes, which is important because constancy is crucial in cigar preservation.

Other key features include:

LED lighting — not only does it look better than standard lighting, it emits virtually no heat to compromise your collection. (And the dimmer function helps you choose just the right “mood lighting” for your cigar collection display — whatever mood that may be.)

Activated charcoal filter – ensures fresh, clean air flow

Glass-front door — allows owner to monitor temperature and humidity control display to avoid frequent door-opening that could affect conditions inside the humidor

Water reservoir — insusceptible to mold and rot, easy to clean, and holds 3 months worth of water at a time

Liebherr’s XS-200 measures 24-1/8″ high, 16-3/4″ wide and 18-7/8″ deep.

Warners’ Stellian currently offers the XS 200 for $2,599, which includes free shipping to anywhere we can sell Liebherr (peach-colored states).
