Anyone who appreciates the unmatched flavor, texture and fork-cut tenderness of dry-aged beef will tell you that, once you've had it, there’s no going back. However, dry-aging has long remained a secret among some of the world’s most esteemed steakhouses and fine restaurants. Good news:  because of the advances in home dry-aging, you can transform average into spectacular right at home. 

Of course, those new to the concept of dry-aging steaks often don’t know where to start, which unit to choose or what to expect on their first attempt. In this blog post, we’ll examine some of the most common applications to help those new to dry-aging find the unit that’s best for their needs, budget and space requirements.

Individuals, Couples and Households with Limited Space

If you’re new to dry-aging beef at home, one of the first things to consider is how many people you’ll be feeding.  In cases of smaller households or those pressed for space, there are options that should work perfectly.  If you have a secondary refrigerator or dedicated beer fridge with free space available, the SteakAger PRO 15 is a great choice. It is designed to fit nicely in most refrigerators and has enough room to dry-age a 12-14 pound cut of beef. 

Dry-aging Beef at Home for Families and Small Groups

A number of configurations will work for those dry-aging enough beef to feed your family or small to medium sized group.  The SteakAger PRO 40 is a self-contained refrigerated unit that can hold an impressive 40+ pounds of beef, or two full subprimals. If you’re not keen on the idea of having things out in the open, there’s always the option of purchasing more than one SteakAger PRO 15.  They can be stacked in larger refrigerators, positioned side-by-side or set up to occupy multiple shelves provided you have room to do so.

Extended Families, Large Groups and High Volume Grilling

Whether you’re the head of a large family, consistently feeding extended groups of friends, or simply the type who believes in going big every time, buying a large capacity beef dry-aging unit offers the most generous amount of space and—as many users have discovered—typically pays for itself after just a few full aging cycles.  The SteakAger PRO 40 is as close to commercial-grade as you’ll find, with ample room for 40+ lbs of beef and some of the most advanced technology available.
