Which Box Is Right For You
Helping You Make The Right Box Choice For You.
This is a handy guide to help you choose which box is best for you.
We have various 3/5kg boxes/dehydrators available
We have various 5kg boxes available. These boxes can hold 3/5kgs of wet meat. They are perfect for those who’d like to make biltong for personal consumption or for making small/medium batches for friends and family. This is suitable for indoor use where you can keep the temperature consistent. Remember you lose 35%-40% of the weight of your meat in the drying process, so this is something to consider when choosing which box size is right for you.
We have various 10kg boxes/dehydrators available
We have various 10kg boxes available. These boxes can hold 10kgs of wet meat. If you are wanting to produce biltong on a slightly larger scale in your home then this box is ideal. If you are a start-up home business wanting to see how well you would do producing, then this size might be more suitable to you. Remember you lose 35%-40% of the weight of your meat in the drying process, so this is something to consider when choosing which box size is right for you.

Can I see more images of your products?
Yes you can! Head over to our Facebook & Instagram pages. Customers often share their progress with us!
What is the difference between ‘temperature controlled’ & ‘temperature display’ boxes?
A temperature display box does just that. It is fitted with a heat element and displays the temperature/humidity in the box however is not controllable.
A temperature-controlled box, however, is fitted with a heat element which switches off once it has reached the set temperature.
Why we now use infrared heating?
Some of our advanced boxes are fitted with infrared heat elements. This plays a small part in a better drying process. Infrared is the closest heat source to replicate the sun and as traditionally meat would have been dried by the sun, we make a box as close to drying tradition as we can.
What wood do we use to make our boxes?
All boxes are made from solid pine however you can choose your preferred wood colour effect when checking out. Please see the options available on each listing.
Are our boxes for drying meat only?
The answer to this question is absolutely NOT. These boxes can be used to dehydrate or cure a whole variety of food types including meat, vegetables, fruits and even herbs and spices.
**Please note if you are making biltong to sell to members of the public the council requires you to use a stainless steel dryer for health and hygiene purposes!**
