FAQ'S

What is the difference between 'Temperature Controlled' & 'Temperature Display' Boxes? 

A temperature display box does just that. It is fitted with a 40w bulb and 'displays' the temperature of the box.

A temperature controlled box however is fitted with either a 50w or 100w infra-red heat element which switches off once it has reached the set temperature.

Bulb Box Or Heat Element Box

Infra-red plays a small part in a better drying process. Infra-red 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 Is The Difference Between Pine Or Oak Effect?

All boxes excluding our WIFI box are made from solid pine wood. The pine is left natural in it's original state if you choose the pine option. An oak effect box is where we darken the natural light pine to give it the look of oak. These boxes are not Veneer.

Are Biltong 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 things including Meat, Vegetables, Fruits, even Herbs and Spices.
