"Outstanding product! I bought it to shell black walnuts (2 large boxes hulled and dried). After getting used to it and a little work on technique I was able to crack the walnuts quickly and completely. Even my little niece (4 yrs old) was able to crack black walnuts and help with the processing after a little practice. The only problem I had was the thicker shells would really fly when cracked. I solved this by simply using the nutcracker in the cleaned delivery box with a little tape to keep the flaps down."

"My hard-to-buy for husband always wants nuts in the shell at Christmas time, but had bent and destroyed every other nutcracker we had. I bought this for his Christmas present (along with the usual bag of mixed nuts in the shell) and he was both surprised with the gift and very happy with it's performance. "

"My favorite nut is a hazelnut and I found this cracker has a bit of trouble with them, partly because they go down between the ridge on the lower bar. Regardless, with effort, I can crack my hazelnuts. I do love the machine, its heft, its no-nonsense appearance. I am happy with it and feel it's a bit improvement over my handheld crackers. It will be a hit at Thanksgiving. My walnut trees should start producing soon, and I'm certain this tool will help with that shelling."

"Just bought this nutcracker to crack Black walnuts. We had been using a hammer to break them open on a brick, This is a wonderful tool. Effortless, heavy duty, and very well built out of tubular steel. I expect this will last me a lifetime. Takes those black walnuts down so easy, I have to hide them cause the kids are cracking them and eating them all on their own."

"I bought one of these crackers for myself for Christmas. I had used my brothers cracker is the past, it is a different make. This cracker blows his away! The only thing I might change would be to add a small return spring to the handle. It has enough leverage that when the handle drops down with your fingers in the wrong spot you can get a good hard pinch. I would definately recommend this to everyone!"

"We have used this nut cracker primarily for hickory nuts. It will crack most hickory nuts easily; some require a little more effort. It is well make and sturdy. I plan to add a wood handle as the metal bar is a little uncomfortable after awhile. Or you could slip a piece of tubing over the handle as well. It helps to oil it once in a while. It is strange that it is rated to last a lifetime but only guaranteed for a year. With a little care (oiling) I think it would last a lifetime."

"Husband purchased this for me as a Christmas gift. Very sturdy nutcracker! Can handle any nut. I use it mostly for pecans and it does take a little time to perfect your technique so as not to crush the meat of the nut. Highly recommend!"

"I was skeptical after trying 4 different nut crackers on my very hard shelled almonds from my tree. This one was the most expensive, but I would have saved money had I gotten it first! It is the BEST nut cracker and feels like it will last forever. I can crack my almonds open with minimal effort and the nut is always in one piece. I use a towel over the cracker so the shell fragments don't fly everywhere, but I highly recommend this device. I only wish shipping was a little faster."

"Wow! I bought this for my mother who wanted a super duper nut cracker she could use without fatiguing her hands. This has been great. We are still figuring out how to crack the nut without crushing it a bit.. In any case, the other good point is although it looks a bit medieval, it doesn't pinch fingers and the movement of the lever is very gentle and steady. It effortlessly crunches walnuts, pecans.. "
