Features

Inside the fridge, the meat ages on the bone at a humidity of around 85% and a temperature of 2 °C. The precise electronic control system of the DRY AGER DX500 ensures the accurate regulation of temperature, which can be set in precise 0.1 °C increments.

The humidity is also controlled accurately through the integrated HumiControl system, which can be set between 60% and 90%. This guarantees, together with the DX AirReg system, a perfect micro-climate, an ideal air-flow and continuous sterilization inside the DRY AGER – even when the outside temperature fluctuates.

To protect the contents inside the fridge from harmful UV-light, the stylish insulated stainless door incorporates a metallic tinted glass.

The DRY AGER is not only restricted to dry aging beef, but can also be used for the production of charcuterie, smallgoods, air drying cured ham, dry aging pork and lamb, maturing cheese, or simply as a stylish fridge.

Dry Ager

How does a dry-aging cabinet improve your meat products?

The Dry Ager offers full control of temperature (in precise 0.1°C increments) and humidity (in 0.1% increments between 60-90%) without the need for an external water supply. This takes the guesswork out of producing a quality steak, leading to consistent, high standard results.

The isolating, tinted, lockable glass door ensures the meat is protected from harmful UV rays, while the carefully regulated microclimate by the DX AIRREG system takes care of the meat from the inside. A activated charcoal carbon filter and UVC ventilated disinfectant system sterilizes the air inside the cabinet every minute, instantly obliterating germs or bacteria and ensuring the meat is always 100% safe.

We suggest a temperature of 2°C and a humidity setting of 85% for the most tender, flavoursome beef. The longer the meat is stored, more intense flavours are produced and the softer it becomes.

Preparation is very simple, with multiple beef saddles hung or stored on the bone to do its own work. Adjustable shelves and hangers maximise storage space for added quantity as well as quantity. Once the aging process is complete, the thin crust is trimmed off, de-boned or can be cut into individual steaks for cooking or single serve vacuum packages for sale.

After aging on the bone in the cabinet for 4 weeks, the weight loss of beef is outstandingly small, a maximum of 7-8% as opposed to as much as 30% when dry aged in cool rooms and standard fridges.

In addition to adding value to your business through higher product standards, a dry-aging cabinet can become a focal point of your retail operation. A large, brightly lit fridge full of quality beef evokes a sense of professionalism and excellence, and illustrates the effort and expertise that is ingrained in each product.

We guarantee the amazing flavours that are self-produced by using a dry-aging cabinet will transcend any other beef prep method you currently use or don’t use. The variable cabinet sizes cater to a range of food businesses including restaurants, artisan meat suppliers and even home beef enthusiasts.

The Dry Ager is not only limited to dry aging beef, lamb or pork, but can be used for the production of charcuterie and smallgoods, air drying cured ham, maturing cheese or simply as a good looking fridge.

Creating your own dry aged experience has never been so easy.
