Prior to Steak Locker’s entry into the market in 2013 via a successful Kickstarter Campaign the only options to dry age beef at home were to modify a dorm room fridge, go to an expensive steak house or pay up to $40 per pound at a fancy grocery store. To modify a dorm room fridge can be time consuming, varying results and easily lead to incorrect temperature and humidity measurements which can quickly produce botulism. Then, to purchase already dry aged products can become quite expensive and reserved for special occasions.
Steak Locker realized there was a huge gap in the market to make dry aging beef at home more accessible. With Steak Locker’s line of products, the temperature and humidity measurements are easily monitored via the smart app available within the IOS app store and provides details on how to track inventory, enable notifications and have 24/7 monitoring. So, if the Steak Locker is left unattended and a storm cuts off the power, the smart application will send an alert that there is an unsafe environment within the locker and the product needs to be moved to be saved from spoiling. The smart application also contains an array of informational videos on how to dry age as well as helpful guides to calculate yield management, nutritional information and an HACCP plan with features designed by professional chefs.
