Perfecto Cigar Holder

Recently I tried out a product called the Perfecto Cigar Holder. Many thanks to Gary for sending me this tool for review.

Perfecto Cigar Holder is exactly what it sounds like—a product designed to hold a cigar when you are out and about and are not in a location with an ashtray or another good place to set down your cigar. Think of it as a portable ashtray. The device itself has a resting place for the cigar, a tube for catching ash, and a C-clamp. The idea with the C-clamp is that you can use it to clamp the device onto any surface (a railing for example). So even if you don’t have a table, you can still set your cigar down.

How did it perform? It’s well constructed, but a bit bulky. Despite being bulky, it is lightweight, which is great, and appears to be made with materials that can withstand contact with concrete and other harsh materials without scratching or getting damaged. The nylon it’s made out of can withstand temperatures up to 520 degrees F / 271 C, so there are no melting concerns. It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing device, and it looks a bit awkward, but it has a lot of utility.

Perfecto Cigar Holder

How useful the Perfecto Cigar Holder is will depend largely on what you want to do with it. For example, it is not very useful in the car, since there is no surface which can accommodate it. But it’s perfect for clamping onto a picnic table, and apparently it will fit most golf carts. I don’t golf, so I can’t attest to that, but I can definitely see where it’d be a great application, and it would be useful if you were out in the park with your laptop working on a bench for example (I noticed that I placed the cigar “ash out” in the picture above. It’s not the way you’re normally supposed to do it). So, all in all, a useful product. I recommend looking up its dimensions and deciding whether or not it will benefit you. Think about what surfaces you would want to attach it to and where and when you would be using it to decide if it would be a good purchase, either from the official website or from Amazon.

  1. Wide jaws accommodate many surfaces and the clamping force is sufficient. Since the cigar holder is not adjustable, it’s only useful on horizontal or near horizontal surfaces.

  2. I have many cigar clips, the best is “CigarMinder” at my local B&M for $10.95. Half the size and price.

  3. Looks a little bulky to me.

  4. This is genius. I can see this thing clipped on the side of my grill!

  5. A girl can never have too many accessories!

  6. Golf bag perhaps?

  7. great idea and it looks like it could clamp on a tail gate

  8. The Perfecto Cigar Holder will be used five days a week at work while I spend time building decks for homes.

  9. What a great idea for when I am working outside in the yard. I am always looking for a safe place to set my cigar down so that it will not get wrecked. 🙂

  10. I could sure use the device when I am working on machinery in my work shop!

  11. Thanks for the contest – the Perfecto is a great utility and I can think of lots of great places to put it.

  12. When you spend a lot of time moving around in your shop you find ash trays everywhere and they tend to get spilled, bumped or broken. The clamptray would be perfect for giving the stick a place to rest while you work or when you need both hands to complete a task. Great idea this, wish I’d thought of it!

  13. Looks interesting.

  14. It looks like an interesting product. I think it would work well potentially in my car, where I seem to smoke a ton of cigars.

  15. Looks like a well made piece of equipment. I hope I get a chance to try it out!

  16. Looks sturdy enough for me!

  17. I have seen pictures of this and even saw a blinged out versions. Very interesting and would love to try it out. Hope to see it at IPCPR.

  18. Yeah, looks like a handy item that can be used in a variety of places/circumstances.

  19. need one now!

  20. Great review. Looks like a pretty handy accessory, albeit a pretty specialized, if it suits your needs, type of device. I could definitely find a way to make use of it. 20 is a bit steep though.

  21. I could always use a place to store my stogie when I am working outside and not around my stands!

  22. Hm, I could use it in my workshop as well…and many other places 🙂

  23. Hadn’t even thought about fishing and using this. That is a great idea and I have other times I have needed this!

  24. Looks very interesting. When I win, I will report back on it usefulness in a golf cart. Good luck me! And everyone else too I guess.

  25. Looks like a good addition for my golf push cart.

  26. It’s ugly and I like it! No pretenses, nothing fancy…looks like it gets the job done.

  27. Interesting gadget! this will stop my wife from complaining since I always have cigar ash falling on my lap when i’m smoking…

  28. This would be great at the job site.

  29. what a coincidence! I was just shopping for something like this today.

  30. Looks interesting and functional. Send me one and I’ll let you know how it works out for me.

  31. I can see this on my golf bag as I type this. Thank You Cigar Inspector.

  32. I might find this useful… Good luck, everyone!

  33. Easy to carry, easy to use and looks very handy. My sticks would be happy to rest here. If I don’t win one I may buy one, great accessory.

  34. Looks a little bulky but at the same time it should be good for attaching to thicker objects or surfaces than something like the cigar minder can. Also not needing two hands to put your cigar down is a big plus. Definitely would be a nice accessories addition.
    Thanks for the contest. Here’s hoping!

  35. This item looks like its a perfect grill accessory , while grilling I never want to drop ashes on the food, I would love to try this item out in this aspect.

  36. Thanks for the review and contest.

    Seems a little steep at $20, wonder what a group buy of 20+ would run…

  37. Could use one in Sweden 🙂

  38. Looks way better than a clip!

  39. What a great idea! I SO need one! Thanks for the review.

  40. That looks like a great holder. I bought a holder last year not as fancy as the Perfecto Cigar Holder but it fell out of the truck and got squished. It was great before then.

    Looks good and versital I like it

  41. I can think of 3 different places I could clamp it in my car! Looks like a winner!

  42. Nice product.

  43. Looks like it corrects all the problems with my other cigar clips – it can be used with one hand, doesn’t damage the wrapper, and can accommodate angled surfaces.

  44. Dozens of places where this would be useful. Wouldn’t have to balance that stogie on the park bench and possibly leave a burn mark. Thanks for the chance to win one.

  45. A good accesory for the frount pourch.

  46. This would work great on my deck Perfect

  47. Sign me up. I need one!

  48. This looks like a great accessory to have. Very useful for enjoying a smoke while working on projects outside, and it would also be great for camping/golfing too.

  49. That’s pretty slick! I already pictured 3 different places on my kayak that I can clip that while I’m fishing.

  50. Looks like it could come in quite handy. I’ll bet I can find a good use for it (I don’t golf either).

  51. awesome! attach that to the golf cart and good to go!

  52. Looks like it could be really handy. Count me in.

  53. It looks like just the tool I could use while golfing, Clip it to the cart!

  54. Looks like a great tool. Hope to be able to try it out for myself.

  55. yes, looks perfect for my picnic table 🙂
