The product is really flimsy and delicate. Wants to crack just looking at it. But handle with care and it does what it says it does....makes great biltong.

Once the Biltong King adorns your kitchen counter in all its lighty, beefy dehydrated prowess – you’ll notice the aroma of subtle, fragranced a-grade drying beef wafting through your living room and wonder how you have ever survived without it

In fact, when the guys at Mellerware sat together one night with sharp pencils, sheets of paper, and strong coffee; they did more than just design a device of glory. They named it appropriately too.

It’s called King, because it is. And while some may criticize the overall build quality of the epic enclosure, just remember that it’s purposefully built to be affordable, yet robust enough to sustain your own scientific Biltong adventures for many years to come.

It’s lightweight, easy to assemble, easy to clean, runs very quietly, dries your biltong beautifully and if you look at it for long enough, you’ll even feel more manly and grow a beard.

Throw in a price that’s bound to make every Biltong retailer in the country swoon with envy, and you have every reason to hit that “Add to cart” button right now.

Thank you TAKEALOT you made my birthday with this beauty. Delivery in perfect condition. Assembled in seconds. My first batch of silverside is almost ready to taste - so excited.

Tania, South Africa. 9 May 2014

As a birthday present for my significant other - I scored some serious brownie points!!
He couldn't wait to get started - 1st attempt biltong was done in about 5 days. It is easy to assemble, easy to use and works like a bomb!

nishan, South Africa. 9 May 2014

Excellent stuff

Telana, South Africa. 11 July 2014

Gr8 product. works very well.

Jennifer, South Africa. 1 August 2014

At last a product that works well

Johan, South Africa. 3 August 2014

Very nice. Especially when packing away. Folds up small so you don't need large storage space.
Put up my first 2.5kg of meat same day. 5 days later had very nice biltong. Now busy with my next batch of 4.5kg meat. After that might give fruit a chance. But works very well.

Malcolm, South Africa. 4 August 2014

Great product, as good as I expected it to be. First batch of borewors will be ready to start eating this afternoon. Can't wait!

Ibolya, South Africa. 4 August 2014

plastic is very light and you have to work slowly and carefully when you put the item together.
Makes great bacon biltong in 24 hours!

Natasha, South Africa. 5 August 2014

Must say works very well. Will definitely use it as often as i can.
Biltong came out very nice.

Chris, South Africa. 5 August 2014

Definitely a great buy here. Initial impressions are that the build quality is quite flimsy, but this is not the case once clipped together. I'm busy experimenting the different meats to dry as well as the different recipes of meat preparation. I'm finding less than 3 days to create 3kg of biltong. Try with our without the light bulb (but keep the fan on all the time), as the light bulb I find creates a "hardish crust" on the outside of the meat. Definitely a new fun hobby the whole family will enjoy.

Ian, South Africa. 5 August 2014

Very what it would do!!

yolanda, South Africa. 6 August 2014

very good product

Ameerah, South Africa. 6 August 2014

A bit flimsy but made perfect biltong in no time.Small batches dry quicker than bigger batches.Didnt have much luck with dried fruit so will try again.Decent product decent price.

Johan, South Africa. 7 August 2014

The construction is a little bit flimsy, but it works great!

Craig, South Africa. 11 August 2014

Very flimsy design but it does what it says.

Michelle, South Africa. 13 August 2014

Great product at a reasonable price!

Almar, South Africa. 14 August 2014

Awesome thx. Now I dont have to spend R300, 00 per kg on biltong in the shops. :-)

Nicholas, South Africa. 18 August 2014

Fair value for money and makes great biltong. You need to pay special attention to the light bulb when opening the top of the unit. It can knock one of the rails holding you biltong out of it's supporting bracket, causing your biltong to fall to the bottom of the unit. But this can be managed with a little care when opening.

Glen, South Africa. 25 August 2014

The product works well but the fan smelled like it was burning out on initial startup. Took a few days to get rid of the smell so had it exchanged. 2nd one smelled the same but this cleared up after a few hrs.

Nita, South Africa. 3 September 2014

The rods for hanging are a bit short, so they tend to fall off if you are not very careful.
