Satara Biltong Maker

Satara Biltong Maker Review

When I saw this on Amazon, I knew I had to buy it. It came in different colours and it had good reviews. My pricing point was £80 so this device fell well below that.

Buying

I wanted to purchase from a company in the UK, this makes getting spare parts easier. I prefer Amazon for most of my purchases, so I naturally searched on Amazon found this box

The Satara is available in 6 different colours:

  • Red
  • Grey
  • Green
  • Yellow

  • White

It has very good reviews on Amazon and the owner Brad was quick to reply to any concerns or questions the customers had on his Amazon shop.

I went ahead and bought it from Amazon for £74.99.

The Plastic Hooks

Three aluminium rods are included but more could be bought if required.

The Rod holders have been designed for easy clip on and off. This makes cleaning the machine much easier. I put mine in the dishwasher to be washed after I have made tong.

My Final Thoughts

If you are interested in making yor own biltong at home, this is the perfect biltong machine.

This biltong box seals tight and contains all the biltong smells. It is easy to clean, it looks professionally made and feels firm.

I enjoy using it and it looks good in my study.

It only takes four and a half days to make biltong. If I hang freshly spiced biltong on a Tuesday evening it will be ready to eat on Saturday afternoon.

If you’re looking for a new biltong maker I can wholeheartedly recommend this as I have been using it for a year now and it is still going strong.
