Inside the fridge, the meat ages on the bone at a humidity of around 85% and a temperature of 2 °C. The precise electronic control system of the DRY AGER DX500 ensures the accurate regulation of temperature, which can be set in precise 0.1 °C increments.

Air Control

The humidity is also controlled accurately through the integrated HumiControl system, which can be set between 60% and 90%. This guarantees, together with the DX AirReg system, a perfect micro-climate, an ideal air-flow and continuous sterilization inside the DRY AGER – even when the outside temperature fluctuates.

UV Protection

To protect the contents inside the fridge from harmful UV-light, the stylish insulated stainless door incorporates a metallic tinted glass.

Not just beef...

The DRY AGER is not only restricted to dry aging beef, but can also be used for the production of charcuterie, smallgoods, air drying cured ham, dry aging pork and lamb, maturing cheese, or simply as a stylish fridge.




A WALL MOUNTING SET is now also available as a practical accessory for easy suspension of the device on a load-bearing wall.











Unique and only in the DRY AGER® Dry Aging Fridge! Thanks to the integrated SmartAging® technology, meat, ham, fish, sausage, cheese, herbs, pasta, and much more can be easily aged or dried at the touch of a button. Dry aging has never been so easy and safe.


Precise Parameters

The intelligent control system of the Premium S models allows temperatures from 0 to +30 °C as well as humidity values between 40 and 90%, each electronically controllable. Automatic with the SmartAging® programs or in manual mode. A water connection or tank is not necessary thanks to HumiControl®.


Absolute Cleanliness

Dangerous bacteria and germs don’t stand a chance. The DX 500 Premium S has an active UVC sterilization box that completely disinfects the entire air mass in the Dry Aging Fridge at least 1x per minute. The activated carbon filter additionally cleans the incoming air. The inner container is made of an antibacterial material and features a sophisticated design that ensures easy cleaning. A SmartAging® pre-cleaning program ensures perfect initial hygienic conditions after each aging cycle.


Minimal Weight Loss

Beef is at just about 7-8% weight loss after 4 weeks of aging on the bone and about 12% after 6 weeks. These values are unparalleled and are directly reflected when it comes to your wallet.


Funcational, award-winning design

Winner of many prestigious design awards, the DRY AGER® Dry Aging Fridge is guaranteed to be the best choice. The inner container is antibacterial and is shaped to facilitate cleaning and prevent the formation of dirt in corners. The bottom surface slopes backwards to prevent liquids from spilling out of the unit. The integrated DX LED Premium light strips, which are integrated in the door on both sides, perfectly illuminate the food in the Dry Aging Fridge.
