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

"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."

"I work in manufacturing, so I thought I would buy a slightly more industrial nutcracker than the little soldiers and squirrels I see everywhere. This thing is SO WELL MADE. Trust me, as soon as I got it out of the box, I inspected every single component and every weld. (Hee-hee... WELDING! On A NUTCRACKER!) I thought it would be functional but unsightly, but the design is actually so simple and elegant, I'm going to keep it on my desk. Also, it does a spectacular job of cracking the almonds and walnuts I happened to have on hand. I was a little wary of the potential to pinch a finger in such a heavy-duty industrial device, but it is so well designed that it isn't even really a possibility. I'm definitely seeking out some black walnuts because hey, why not? I have the power! I think I'm going to design a special coffee table and mount one of these to it at my house. Industrial chic + healthy snack = joy!"

"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!"

"Your nutcracker (Item# 16455) is by far and away the best nutcracker ever! We have used it for walnuts (60 lbs.), hazelnuts, and the ever-dreadful-to-crack Brazil Nuts. It is easy on the arm, reduces "incoming" shells to the barest minimum, and leaves beautiful walnut halves and uncrushed filberts. Everyone in the family now has one. It is worth every penny and more."

"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."

"My husband requested a nutcracker for black walnuts after we were gifted with many buckets of them this year. I searched everywhere locally, and found this one online. The reviews said it would crack black walnuts so we ordered it. We were NOT DISAPPOINTED! My husband says it makes light work of them, especially compared to how he was cracking them, with a hammer. This product is so well made and sturdy, I'm sure it will last our lifetime and more. Thanks for a wonderful product that does what it says it will do!"

"Excellent nutcracker, easy to use, I think I'll mount mine permantly to a board. Does an excellent job on black walnuts and I know it would do a good job on any other nut. Would highly recomend this product. Best buy for the money."
