Meat Meat

The DRY AGER Dry Aging Fridge can do many things, but the refinement of meat is its essence. When Dry Aging, you end up having to deal with each piece of meat individually. Fortunately, we have a simple solution: our SmartAging® Technology.

With sophisticated programs, you’ll easily handle beef, pork, venison, lamb, or kid goat at the touch of a button—depending on the cut and the desired flavor intensity. Choose your aging program and from then on it’s all about: Keep calm and wait patiently!

Sausage Sausage

When it comes to sausage, you can rely on our DRY AGER Dry Aging Cabinet. Because it’s up to the task. From salsiccia to Milanese salami – it can do it all. Sure, you’ll still need a meat grinder and sausage filler to make sausage, but the rest is a breeze with our DRY AGING BIBLE and SmartAging®.

Step-by-step instructions and recipes explain everything you need to know about preparation and seasoning. And the DRY AGER Dry Aging Cabinet does the rest. Once again, all that’s left for you to do is wait.

For just the right seasoning, we even offer you matching spice blends that you can conveniently buy at DRY AGER.

You can find the perfectly coordinated spice mixtures at DRY AGER and the SmartAging® Technology takes care of the right parameters for you at the touch of a button. This turns the production of ham from a nail-biter into a test of patience. Because the most tedious step for you is waiting.

How to make the ham is explained step-by-step in The Dry Aging Bible. With suitable recipes, aging program instructions, and ingredient lists, we’ll show you everything you need to know about ham preparation. From spicy Black Forest ham to hearty lardo.

Whether you have chicken, duck, or pheasant, in The Dry Aging Bible, you will find all the information you need for ideal preparation and suitable SmartAging® aging programs. It’s that simple!

Overview of aging programs:

Fish Fish

Dry aging fish is considered the supreme discipline, because there is a fine line between a perfect result or an inedible product. The result is unexpected flavors ranging from marzipan to butter. Another plus: The shelf life of whole fish is extended to up to 10 days, which saves money.

Feeling like a fish out of water so far when it comes to Dry Aging fish? That’s nothing to worry about. With SmartAging®, the right aging conditions are guaranteed in the unit. You hook your fish, choose one of the appropriate aging programs, and wait – et voilà!

Overview of aging programs:

  • Program for whole fish

Cheese Cheese

It’s about your cheese. Because extraordinary taste takes time. To create ideal conditions for an aging cheese, humidity, temperature, and air flow must be controlled. Sounds like a job for DRY AGER’s Dry Aging Fridge.

So buy a young round of cheese, choose the aging program and, let it refine perfectly over a period of 3-4 weeks. You just need to turn it and brush it off every now and then. Or you can use the DRY AGER Dry Aging Fridge as a “cheese cover” for soft and semi-hard cheese!

Overview of aging programs:

  • Program for soft cheese
  • Program for semi-hard cheese
  • Program for storing soft cheese

Wine Wine

When you give up meat, fish, and the like, are your plant-based alternatives wine and cigars? It’s a perfect match.

Your DRY AGER Dry Aging Cabinet is also wonderfully suitable as a wine cabinet and/or humidor during these phases. Because wine loves constant temperatures and cigars need humid air – you can easily regulate both with the DRY AGER Dry Aging Fridge at the touch of a button! And once you’ve made it through the period of time when you’re abstaining, you can get right back to Dry Aging meat, thanks to its easy cleaning!

Special programs Special programs
Special programs

Pasta fits right in! But fruits, vegetables, herbs, or mushrooms can now also be dried very easily with special SmartAging® programs. The big advantage over an automatic dehydrator: In the DRY AGER Climate Cabinet, even large quantities are dried extremely gently at lower temperatures than would otherwise be the case. This process is germ-free as well, which ensures a significantly longer shelf life.

The right program can also be a tremendous benefit for storing fresh fruits and vegetables.
After each completed aging cycle, the pre-cleaning program is also available to you if needed, making the DRY AGER Climate and Dry Aging Fridge ready for your next project.

The 6 most important questions

What are the benefits of SmartAging® technology?
  • You now have a huge spectrum of dry-aging options in front of you. Beef, pork, game, poultry, ham, sausage, fish, cheese, wine, herbs, pasta, or fruit. The possibilities are almost endless.
  • DXTasteReg® technology in combination with SmartAging® opens up completely new dimensions in determining the flavor of aged foods. Choose your personal taste from three possible characteristics. This has never been done before and is only available in a DRY AGER Dry Aging Fridge.
  • You can be sure that your dry-aging project will succeed, as the aging programs are perfectly adapted to the different foods. This is easy on your wallet and nothing will be thrown away due to an aging defect.
  • You’ll achieve less weight loss and need to remove fewer dried areas. Ideal parameters and perfectly adjusted fan speeds dry the product just right.
  • Complicated aging processes with different phases, as with sausage or ham production, now run automatically. This saves you from having to constantly adjust the aging parameters much more often.
  • Even for non-professionals, the production of more complicated products such as ham or sausage is now quite easy to achieve. Step-by-step instructions guide and lead you to the perfect result.
Can I retrofit SmartAging® technology to an older DRY AGER® Dry Aging Fridge model?
All information, inspiration, step-by-step instructions, ingredient lists, etc. naturally also apply to the production of dry-aged foods in older DRY AGER® Dry Aging Cabinets. However, you cannot use the SmartAging® aging programs shown in the book, which are perfectly adapted to the aging recipes, because older DRY AGER® models do not have SmartAging® technology.
Is operating the DRY AGER Premium S models complicated?
  • No, entering the desired values on the control unit is absolutely intuitive.
  • The DRY AGING BIBLE will help you choose the program. In the book you will find a lot of aging recipes with corresponding aging programs. You can find the right program for you using easy-to-understand decision trees, tables, or individual recipes.
Why can the DRY AGER Premium S Generation age so many different foods?
  • The DRY AGER Premium S units can cover incredible ranges of parameters. Humidity can be electronically adjusted from 40 to 90% and temperature from 0 to +30 °C. This is the only reason why many dry-aging projects are possible in the first place. Combined with a high-precision control system, an incredibly wide variety of products can now be aged into true delicacies.
  • When handling raw meat products, but especially extremely sensitive foods such as fish, proper hygiene for food safety is essential. DRY AGER Premium S models can guarantee optimal conditions thanks to a three-stage disinfection system. The UVC disinfection box disinfects all the air in the interior once per minute, the integrated activated carbon filter cleans the incoming air, and the antibacterial inner container leaves germs and bacteria no chance.
  • The intelligent aging programs with SmartAging® technology were developed to respond perfectly to the characteristics of individual foods, cuts of meat, or sausage and ham products. Each product has certain properties that can be positively or negatively affected by temperature, humidity, and air flow. After many years of studying aging, we have perfectly adjusted the aging parameters of the SmartAging® programs and have now made it possible to refine such a wide range of foods.
Is the technology also worthwhile for professional use?
  • Yes, because Smart Aging® aging programs ensure unprecedented product safety. You can be sure that with the right program you will achieve the best possible result. This allows you to offer your customers consistent quality, provided that the starting products are high quality as well.
  • Because you don’t just want to age, but also ideally present your fully aged product to your customers, there is also a program for presenting your goods. This means that prepared cuts, for example, stay fresh longer and dry out less. This puts your goods in the right light and saves you money, as fewer dry edges form.
  • DRY AGER Premium S models with SmartAging® technology make it easy to expand your portfolio. Try your hand at new aging recipes from the DRY AGING BIBLE and offer your customers new and surprising products and an unprecedented shopping experience.
Can the device be operated without the DRY AGING BIBLE?
  • Of course, the DRY AGER Premium S models can also be used without the aid of the DRY AGING BIBLE. You will find all the information on the aging programs in the included operating instructions. But we definitely also recommend that you work with the book. All the essential information you need to know is presented in an understandable and clear fashion, and the incredible amount of inspiration will have you aging more creatively than ever before.
  • The DRY AGING BIBLE features an incredible number of aging recipes for beef, pork, game, kid goat, poultry, fish, salami, sausage, ham, various special programs, and suitable cooking recipes. There’s something for everyone and you won’t want to miss it.
  • With over 300 pages, the DRY AGING BIBLE is the world’s standard reference par excellence on the subject of dry aging food. You will find all the answers to your questions in the chapters on basic knowledge, product knowledge, practice, SmartAging® aging recipes, chef recipes, as well as the science section.
