    No, but it takes a 4 or 5 days to get it right. Easiest method is to get some distilled water at the grocery store, pour some in a shot glass, sit it in the humidor and close the lid, refill your shot glass everyday.

    If you put your cigars in an uncured humidor it will suck the moisture right out of them. Just leave them in a ziplock until your humidor is ready.

    When it stops absorbing the distilled water (usually 5 days) you're good.

    Once you're there, it should come with either a round or rectangle humidifier. You fill that with distilled water or go with cigar glycol.

    For a small humidor like that, I prefer glycol. You can get it at Liquor Barn, heck I think Walmart has it now.

    Cool. That's what I thought. Thank you.

    I would also pick up a gigital hygrometer. Easy to calibrate, and more accurate than the dial type that you usually see on the cheaper box humidors. Once you are up and running just check it every week or or two and add distilled water when your humidifier is dry.
