Multi purpose

We bought the Biltong Cabinet for dehydrating our fruit. So far we've done plums, prunes, grapes, rockmelon, Chilean Guavas (NZ Cranberries), apricots, and tomatoes. Not game enough yet to do meat. We cannot be happier with the results. Flavours are intensified and we either bottle, bag, or freeze. We need a bigger one now so we can use the smaller one for meat. Best investment we made in a long time.

5 Stars

I recently purchased The Biltong Boss biltong maker, and I am beyond thrilled with its performance! This device has truly elevated my biltong-making experience to a whole new level.

First and foremost, the build quality of The Biltong Boss is outstanding. It's clear that the manufacturers put a lot of thought into the design, ensuring durability and longevity. The stainless steel construction not only gives it a sleek and modern appearance but also makes it easy to clean after each use.

The functionality of this biltong maker is exceptional. The adjustable fan and temperature controls allow for precise drying, ensuring that my biltong turns out perfectly every time. I appreciate the attention to detail in the design, such as the well-ventilated cabinet that promotes air circulation, resulting in consistently delicious and evenly dried biltong.

One of the standout features of The Biltong Boss is its spacious drying cabinet, which accommodates a substantial amount of meat. Whether I'm making a small batch for personal enjoyment or preparing a larger quantity for a gathering, this biltong maker handles it effortlessly. The removable racks make loading and unloading a breeze, and the overall design maximizes the use of space without compromising on quality.

I was pleasantly surprised by the energy efficiency of The Biltong Boss. It operates quietly and consumes minimal power, making it an eco-friendly choice for biltong enthusiasts who are conscious of their energy consumption.

In addition to its impressive performance, The Biltong Boss comes with a comprehensive user manual that provides clear instructions and tips for perfecting your biltong. The customer support from the company is also top-notch, ensuring that any queries or concerns are addressed promptly.

Best birthday gift for the boy that has everything!

I love my Boss machine and have been trying to think of a birthday gift for
a boy who has everyone…BOOM! I’m getting him the BOSS! He is a chef and loved my biltong so I know this will be perfect and once again I am his favourite mother-in-law ❤️

Kiwi / Saffa Biltong and Droewors

Had my home made box for many years ... but decided to move on. All the spec's were appealing (ie. temp control/fan timer) so I bought one. Have used this quite a few times now and all I can say is WoW ... I can hang 4 kgs of wet meat for biltong or 6 kgs for droewors ... (tip... just take out the side racks for more hanging space). Results ?, extended family now asking for more :) Lekker. Cannot wait to try dried fruit roll , salamis etc. .. just need the time ...

Worth every cent

I bougt this about 16 months ago, it works great for biltong, droewors, dried bacon and even salami. The only drawback is that the timer has to be reset every 24 hours, making it hard to set for a 3 to 4 day drying.

Here’s a little guide to what you can make in your cabinet


The Biltong Boss, as its name suggests, is perfect for drying biltong of all kinds, including beef, ostrich and chicken. If you want to recreate premium beef biltong, choose silverside or topside cuts for a robustly flavoured and mouthwatering result. If you find it at specialist stores, make sure you try the earthy flavour of ostrich, or if you want to recreate the famous Kudu (antelope) biltong, venison is a fantastic alternative. 

Bluefin, Marlin & dried fish

Salty, delicious dried fish is a delicacy you can emulate at home with the help of the Biltong Boss. Try a wide variety of fish for various flavours and textures, including catfish, mackerel, mullet, salmon and whitefish. Dried fish makes for a moreish snack that is great for active lifestyles, hikes, camping or as a crowd pleaser at your next gathering. 


Dried sausages come in all shapes and sizes for every taste and occasion. From spiced boerewors to salty salami, your favourite sausage meats can be dried and enjoyed all year long. With 36 hooks, you have the capacity to hang 36 sausages to dry at one time.

Dried veg

Once your crunch down on crispy kumara and carrot chips, you won’t want to revert back to regular chips again. Mix up your dried snacks with crunchy tomatoes, green beans or zucchini. Spice them, salt them, serve them as a side, as a snack, instead of fries or chips or sprinkle dried veg on salads. Your vegetable game is about to step up a notch.

Dried fruit & fruit leathers

Homemade dried fruit and fruit leathers are undeniably tasty, and you can dry out a huge range of succulent fruits to get that taste in a crunchy and sweeter snack perfect for on-the-go, gatherings or lunchboxes. 

Bonus? They are absolutely packed with nutrients in a smaller package than their fresh counterparts. Try dried bananas, pears, strawberries, peaches, apricots, apples, cantaloupes and even blueberries! Nearly any fruit can be made into delicious fruit leathers and are a hit in your kids’ packed lunches. Sprinkle dried fruit on desserts, cereals and salads, or serve as fruit chips as an alternative.


Dehydrated food isn’t just a delicious snack; it’s a brilliant use of food for those who enjoy outdoor adventures like hiking, camping and long excursions where dried food dense with nutrients is essential for keeping energy levels up without taking up too much room. The Biltong Boss is an adventurer’s right-hand man. It’s the ultimate low-fuss solution to prepping the essential snacks to fuel your trip, no matter the weather.
