STEEL NUTCRACKER DESCRIPTION
"Best nut cracker I have ever used. When I was at home we had to use a hammer and it took us for ever. We used this one as soon as we got it out off the box. I was really shock to see how easy it was to use. And it was made in the good old U.S.A.!" --A Satisfied Lehman's Customer

"All I can say is WOW! Had the nutcracker out of the box and cracking black walnuts in just a couple of minutes . . ." --Kathy

"Used nutcracker on black walnuts. Did well after a little experimentation. Handle not well-designed. Cuts into hand after a bit. Would be better round. OK with an oven mitt for cushion."

"This nut cracker is very well made and smartly designed. I haven't used it to crack hazelnuts or English walnuts, but it might be perfect for those nuts. I have used it for pecans, black walnuts, and hickories. It has more than enough power for pecans, and I like the high degree of control you have compared to other designs, but despite that great control the shape of the metal where it holds the nut in place leads to almost every pecan meat getting crushed by the time the shell is cracked. We still use one of the cheap plunger type crackers (which leave plenty of room for improvement) for pecans even though we have this more expensive cracker. The design is excellent for black walnuts and hickories, but it needs to be a little bigger with a little more leverage to comfortably crack most black walnuts and hickories. It does great with the easier cracking end of the spectrum, but I have to really muscle some black walnuts (which doesn't feel especially safe) and some black walnuts I haven't been able to crack at all with this device."

"I bought this nutcracker from Lehman's a couple of years ago since I have a hazelnut bush and while it does a decent job it could sure use the ridges that are on the top half on the bottom half also. This would be a GREAT nutcracker if it had that feature. As it is now I have to hold the nut in place with one hand and and push down the crack lever with the other or else the hazelnut goes shooting across the room when pressure is applied."

"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."

"good basic design, but could be improved if it would hold onto the nuts and their shells better. I keep picking up nut shells off the floor."

"This nutcracker was faster to use than my Reed's Rocket & Texas Two-Step nut crackers. And there was a lot more leverage making it easier to crack English walnuts. However, it is not as easy to use as described. It took some time to learn how to crack walnuts without crushing them too much. The other nutcrackers were better at cracking walnuts without smashing the meat, but they took a lot of time to adjust between different size walnuts."

"Very good nutcracker. We bought it for pecans, some of which are too small. Works great on average size pecans, etc."

"10 times better than hand held nutcracker. Very little effort needed to crack even the hardest black walnuts. Doesn't do a commercial grade job of keeping the nut meats in one piece, BUT the pieces are much larger than with hand held crackers. I've used this cracker mostly on pecans."

"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."

"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. "
