    all things have a smell, esp when new. and if it's not smelly, there isn't a need to worry.

    I know all new things got the new smell.
    This dry cabinet smell fills up the whole house and you can smell it when you enter the house and it is only 28L, so I was wondering if it's normal.

    The 1st 24hr, I placed it in a well ventilated area and let the humidity stablised. The smell should go away after a while.

    Not really. After 2 days, the dry cab newness smell should no longer fill the room, but the dry cabinet might retain a little smell.
