DRY AGING
Dry Aging is no longer a mystery. You too can
produce succulent and tasteful meat for yourself with the
MEAT QUALITY
DRY AGER DX 1000®
The best meat recognised for Dry Aging is rib-eye on the
bone. It is always best to purchase from a dealer who
sources their meat from a good quality abattoir. The
younger the animal the better the result. It is always
recommended to buy a piece of meat that has a good fat
content and a high rate of internal marbling.
When this technique is used, the result is a quality piece
of meat that brings out a natural, but a more intensive
flavour. The texture of the matured meat is tender, yet firm
and has a perfect bite.
You will notice that when the Dry Aged meat is grilled or
pan fried, there are hardly any meat juices and that the fat
surrounding it gives off a spicy aroma.
It is advisable to mature the meat on the bone either
hanging or in the largest possible joints. The reason for this
is to minimise the pure meat exposed to the air, reducing
weight loss.
The Dry Aging period is recommended for at least
21 days, then the maximum tenderness is reached.
Thereafter, only the flavour becomes more intense.
Please note : A maturing period of up to 6 weeks is possible.
The hygienic handling of food should always be addressed
for best results.
When the process is complete, the thin crust is trimmed
off ready to be de-boned or cut into steaks.
The founders of the DRY AGER Manufactur wish you
lots of joy and pleasure at dryaging.

IV
The temperature and humidity are already setted on 1,5 °C
and 82% humidity which are the perfect settings for
dry aging beef & pork.
V
The meat for the dry aging must be fresh, perfect would
be max. 5 days after slaughtering. Even vacuum matured
meat can be used, but for a maximum of 14 days
(please remove foil)

When maturing individual cuts on the shelves, pay
attention on a protective fat layer which prevents too
much wastage and if possible let it mature on the bone.
Ideal size aprox. 2 – 4 kg / cut
XX Please wear protective gloves at each contact with the meat,
no one should ever touch the meat without gloves!
XII The perfect maturing time is between 25 – 28 days, but
more than 4 weeks is also possible.

– Is the appliance set up firmly on the floor?
– Does the appliance cause nearby items of furniture or objects
to vibrate? Please note that noises caused by the refrigerant
circuit cannot be avoided.
• The temperature is not low enough:
– Is the temperature setting correct (see "Setting the
temperature")?
