WHAT ARE THE PROS SAYING?

 Let’s listen to them

Every business is different, but for any food business to be successful, the key is providing quality product offering and excellent service to customers in a consistent manner.

Successful chefs, restaurant operators, butchers and food retailers might have different concepts as well as focal products, but when it comes to dry aging, quality, consistency, and safety is what they expect and what helps them stand out from the crowd.

At DRYAGER, we happen to work with some of the best professionals in their respective fields. Here is an overview of some of them, and a glimpse of who they are and what DRYAGER brings to their respective businesses.

A PIECE OF CONSISTENCY

Quote

At Amboy Quality Meats, the DRYAGER has become a focal point, a must-have, a need purely because in this world of inconsistencies. The one thing we do know is that if we put a piece of beef into our DRYAGER, in 21 days to 60 days, we'll always have consistently great steaks, briskets, dry aged beef.

DEVELOPING THE ULTIMATE RECEIPE

Quote

The features that I really value about the DRYAGER are a few actually: One would be just the consistency that you are getting from the DRYAGER.
It's very consistent. And that goes in hand with the consistency on how the machine operates... you are able to set the temperature, you're able to set the humidity and you are in a controlled environment... It's really contained, and I think that helps develop the ultimate recipe you want to use.

PIECE OF MIND

Quote

One of the features I really like about the DRYAGER is how clean and safe it is. When you do make charcuterie, you have a lot of safety concerns and being able to dry your charcuterie in an environment where you don't have those concerns, and you know, the various pathogens that can get into your charcuterie are being eliminated, that really gives a great piece of mind, and that in itself is solely worth the price of the unit.

VERY RELIABLE UNITS

Quote

When I first started dry aging fish, we were utilizing our own fridges and I was on the market looking for a professional unit where I could actually control all the aspects of the conditions I age my fish in.

Temperature is very critical, relative humidity is very critical, UV is very critical. These units have all these 3 conditions within my control... The DRYAGER Units are very reliable; I've used them for just over two years and I've never had any issues with them. I utilize these guys for my most expensive fish, and all my long term aging because they are very stable and very reliable.

WE LOVE TO USE OUR DRYAGER UNIT

Quote

The quality of meat, where the cut comes from on the animal, and what cooking method you choose all play a part in the tenderness of the meat. DRYAGER devices makes an awesome in-home or commercial unit that allows anyone to dry-age meat right in their home in a way that makes storing and aging beef feasible and safe.

All of our meat we sell at Five Marys already benefits from a dry-age „on the rail“ immediately after harvest for 21-28 days.
But we love to use our DRYAGER unit at home to experiment with even further aging and tasting the differences in certain cuts over others. The more clean, white fat in a cut, the better the dry-aging process works and the better the FLAVOR!

SOME OF THE BEST I‘VE EVER TASTED

Quote

I am very happy with the initial results of aging our beef in the DRYAGER cabinets. The control and consistency is remarkable, and beyond the increased tenderness I expect to achieve in this process, I found the dry-aged beef fat to be clean, yet complex in flavor - some of the best I‘ve ever tasted.

ALLOWS US TO HAVE GREAT SUCCESS

Quote

The DRYAGER cabinets have proven to be an exceptional inclusion to our dry aged fish program we have at Fish Butchery. What has been most exciting for us is the use of the open shelving within both cabinets for dry ageing flounder, flathead & small mackerel. It allows these small fish to be well ventilated & the controls of the cabinet allows us to have great success conditioning the texture internally whilst improving the skin as well. The results we have seen over the past months are extraordinary and as we continue to work with DRY AGER we hope to see even greater outcomes for fish.

IT HELPS PEOPLE SEE THE QUALITY

Quote

The DRYAGER device is perfect for our restaurant, especially because it is normally used for meat, beef, pork, but in our case, at Porto, we dry age seafood and fish that we bring directly from Spain. Especially when working with fish and dry aging fish, it is really, really important how clean these machines are; you will get more weight and yield than would get with any other dry aging system.

To have a beautiful piece, like the DRYAGER unit, that showcases what we do … people want to see the product inside, know the story behind it and see how we work with it. The DRYAGER cabinet is pushing us more and more because it helps people see the quality of the product we serve.
