Francois, South Africa. 12 October 2014

Works perfectly! Best price from TakeAlot!

Hilton, South Africa. 30 September 2014

It's fair to say that it's not a super-dupa high quality product. But what it does, it does well. We're well pleased with the tasty biltong goodness it creates. Oooh what spices to choose next ?!

Sharyn, South Africa. 6 April 2015

Feels flimsy which makes me treat it very gently - but it's working like dream.
After 4 days - which includes a nearly day and night long Eskom breakdown - my biltong looks and tastes like.... real biltong! Next I shall drying chilis and herbs - pimentos and basil to be precise. Then bananas! Thank you Takelot - this is a treasure of a buy.

Hilary, South Africa. 26 November 2014

Nice, neat unit. Light to hold. Delivered within 2 days. As yet unused as it is a Christmas gift. Very happy with it.

Charmain, South Africa. 31 October 2014

Thank you for your excellent prices and great service. Keep up the good work.

Danie, South Africa. 4 April 2014

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.

Krige, South Africa. 27 January 2014

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.

Peter, South Africa. 11 May 2015

The construction seems quite adequate and it is reasonably sturdy once assembled. If it is carefully assembled I don't see why any of the clips should break.

However - good luck finding the required 40w clear bayonet mount candle style bulb. Nowadays 90% of the bulbs in stores are energy savers which I seriously doubt will get the job done. After 6 stores I eventually found some frosted versions which should be OK, but be prepared for a treasure hunt!

Kevin, South Africa. 19 February 2015

Works like a bomb! Very impressive.

Dean, South Africa. 20 April 2015

Works very well the family very impressed

Francois, South Africa. 4 December 2014

Great Product

Donavon, South Africa. 6 March 2015

As everyone else has stated 'it is flimsy'. I broke one clip putting it together.
Makes biltong and that's the NB thing. Get the correct globe or you'll melt the drying rods.

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.

Ameerah, South Africa. 6 August 2014

A bit flimsy but made perfect biltong in no time.Small batches dry quicker than bigger batches. Didn't have much luck with dried fruit so will try again. Decent product decent price.

Jaen, South Africa. 7 November 2014

Great Product. Just a little flimsy.

Benny, South Africa. 16 February 2015

Nice Buy!

Liesl-Mari, South Africa. 9 February 2015

Excellent product and makes fabulous biltong and Droe Wors!!

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.

Johan, South Africa. 7 August 2014

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

Richela, South Africa. 16 February 2015

Great product!

Bradley, South Africa. 11 May 2015

nice machine..easy to use...

Jaco, South Africa. 18 May 2015

Got this on special for R200, quite happy with the product, makes awesome biltong and droewors (I use it without a light bulb because it is in a weird place so I imagine that certain areas of the meat will get very crispy). As some have said, the plastic side panels are quite flimsy and one panel got a small crack while washing it so you have to be careful with the panels. The fan makes a terrible noise at times and then I have to tap it a few times to get it better (other times I just give up and leave it with the annoying noise). If I paid R300 or R450 like the current price I probably would've given it 2 stars or even 1.

dean, South Africa. 5 March 2015

Good product, works great, just a bit flimsy, the first clip of one of the hanging rods already broke after the 2nd time I used it. But overall im very happy and already ordered another one!

Julio, South Africa. 16 March 2015

Great machine. Home made biltong better than the local shops.

R, South Africa. 12 March 2015

I'm so excited to start using this product, but it is damaged!

Caroline, South Africa. 11 March 2015

I love it - biltong on tap, what more can a girl want?! I've bought one to send to a friend in the UK - I think he's going to be verrrrrry happy!

Michelle, South Africa. 13 August 2014

Great product at a reasonable price!

carmelo, South Africa. 9 March 2015

good

Stefan, South Africa. 5 March 2015

Just had my first batch come out of the Biltong King. Works amazingly. Easy to assemble. Looking forward to many more homemade biltong batches

Aamina, South Africa. 20 May 2015

Happy! happy! Happy!

Niel, South Africa. 17 February 2014

It does what is says. Very happy.

Lee, South Africa. 25 September 2014

For the price it is a great device. Little bit flimsy but does a great job!

Ryan, South Africa. 11 June 2013

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.

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!

Shiraz, South Africa. 10 January 2014

Excellent.

Telana, South Africa. 11 July 2014

Gr8 product. works very well.

Terri, South Africa. 9 April 2015

Really amazing Product! I've bought two!

Etienne, South Africa. 9 February 2015

Happy with my purchase. Delivery was really fast, well done! First batch of droewors came out perfect. Satisfied customer.

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.

trevor, South Africa. 19 February 2015

I receiced it and some of the corners from the sides were broken and the clips were also broken still usable but not happy about the condition I received it in

Kathy, South Africa. 15 April 2015

I bought this for my son who lives in Australia. Carried it over there and for the first 2 weeks it worked exceptionally well. Then the fan stopped working. I was not able to carry it back to return it under guarantee. So very disappointed with it.

Craig, South Africa. 11 August 2014

Very flimsy design but it does what it says.

adriaan, South Africa. 25 February 2014

This product was delivered to my door in perfect order and perfect time.Will surely order from you again. Thank you for such prompt service.

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.

nishan, South Africa. 9 May 2014

Excellent stuff

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!

Reeza, South Africa. 14 April 2015

I found this product to be a little flimsy. I had the previous version of this biltong maker and found the overall package and build quality to be much better. The plastic of this one seems to be of the easily breakable kind, but at this price I suppose you can't expect much better. Nonetheless, it does the job it is meant to do - and it does it well! I am happy with my Biltong King!

yolanda, South Africa. 25 February 2015

First batch of Biltong came out great! took about 4 days.
product itself is a bit 'wobbly' though.

yolanda, South Africa. 6 August 2014

very good product

Jennifer, South Africa. 1 August 2014

At last a product that works 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!

Ian, South Africa. 5 August 2014

Very pleased...do what it would do!!

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.

Ewald, South Africa. 13 April 2015

Rather disappointing product. The fan has just given out, and I was making my second batch of biltong. With the meat only partially dried, I will have to throw it away now. So, all in all, it's turned to be more expensive than just buying bilton.

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.

Almar, South Africa. 14 August 2014

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

Carin, South Africa. 8 April 2015

Flimsy but doing its job!

Micky, South Africa. 10 May 2015

Great little device! Bought one for my husband as a birthday gift for biltong. Liked it so much because I can dry herbs and fruit in it, that I got myself one. My cats avoid store bought, dried catnip, but I grew some at home, dried them and my cats are as fond of it as they are of the fresh leaves. Dried herbs actually smell and taste like herbs, not dried grass. Dried tomatoes as well and made my own spices. Next summer I will attempt to dry home grown coriander, anise and other spices.

Alan, South Africa. 16 February 2015

this product is awesome for making your own biltong. Didn't know there were so many recipes on the internet, we try a new recipe every time with different flavors

Carlos, South Africa. 7 March 2015

Works very well! My first batch was not good due to my error (let it sit in vinegar for too long). Easy to clean and assemble. Great price when you consider what Yuppiechef wants for it.

Craig, South Africa. 8 December 2014

Loving the product, biltong is ready in about 2 days, and with all the load shedding I can at least have a snack :)

Gert, South Africa. 13 October 2014

One of the drying racks were broken when we unpacked it. but looks like a great product.

Harry, South Africa. 20 April 2015

worked in the first week however the little computer fan has since stopped working which is a worry after just one batch of biltong

John, South Africa. 18 November 2014

A bit cheap and nasty. Nothing holds the base in position, so if you move it the bottom falls off, I've glued mine. But basically it works.

Rina, South Africa. 2 December 2014

Best gift for my father, EVER!!!

Hugh, South Africa. 18 November 2014

This was ordered as a Christmas gift so it hasn't been used yet. Anyone know how to bring the 25th December closer? Can't wait to try this baby out

Carey-Anne, South Africa. 17 February 2015

works very well, dismantle carefully when cleaning and the clips can break if too rough. loved it so much bought another.

Mark, South Africa. 14 April 2015

It is awesome and super easy to use. Plus it makes really delicious biltong :)

riyaad, South Africa. 11 May 2015

Good product idea, product material a bit flimsy.

Vanja, South Africa. 7 March 2015

The Plastic sides were cracked and the shelving boards were also cracked.

Lizell, South Africa. 9 April 2015

This small very effective biltong maker is a must have in a "banting" house.
I'm totally mechanical disadvantaged, but I managed to assemble without any hassle. used it the same day on wors, and was super impressed with outcome, since then I've made beef biltong- quick and to MY taste. I saved R280 per kg!!

Retha, South Africa. 19 March 2015

I bought this product for somebody that lives in Germany and we arrived here yesterday and they are very happy with the product. I am very imprest with the service of Take a Lot and will definitely make use of your service again

Sonet, South Africa. 7 April 2015

I bought this for my husband, he is having a good time experimenting with his spices and drying processes for biltong and dry wors.

Lydia, South Africa. 30 April 2015

Firstly, delivery was on point and received my goods in perfect condition. This was purchased as a gift and the recipient is extremely happy!

Vivienne, South Africa. 27 April 2015

Quite the most useless waste of R300 ever. Maybe it makes biltong with the power of a pc fan but 5 days to sort of dry some soggy banana slices is not worth the electricity. Would love to get my money back.

Betsi, South Africa. 16 April 2015

Biltong dried to our liking in 5 days. Love this product

Jennifer, South Africa. 20 May 2015

Good product, delicious biltong in 3 days! easy to assemble
