Another excellent kitchen appliance, essential in any meat lover’s kitchen is a dry-aging fridge. A dry-aging fridge (for those of you who don’t know), is a fridge that combines the modern technology of refrigeration with the traditional craft of dry aging.
Dry aging was once a method of meat preservation that relied on cool temperatures and the right humidity levels to make meat last longer than a few days. Today, dry aging is used as a method to naturally amplify the flavors in the meat. The process concentrates the natural meaty flavors by drawing moisture from the meat, this also gives the meat an unreplicable tenderness
The best dry-aging fridge brand on the market has to be Steak Locker which has specially designed the world’s first SMART dry age fridge. This fridge stands out against the crowd because its smart technology allows anyone to produce high-quality dry-aged products with minimal risk in the comfort of their kitchen. There is a complete range available with a model suitable for the home, restaurants, butcher shops, and even grocery stores. The Steak Locker is the world’s first smart dry aging fridge.
