Drosselmeyer Nutcracker

2 Mar

After my mom-in-law broke her second cheap seafood cracker on her daily walnuts, we were charged with a mission to find a better cracker. She sent us back to return two other locally purchased options. I finally turned to Amazon and found myself falling in love with the Drosselmeyer Nutcracker.

I’ve never had a fascination with cracking nuts – I would buy them pre-shelled like most people would. I’ve found pre-cracked walnuts to be bitter. The mess and risk and crimping my own hands was not worth the effort. After watching Dr Oz say a walnut a day helps keep cancer away I decided to be more open minded. And the price? A whopping $40!

So why would I pick up my jaw and buy one not only for her, but also for myself? Mainly due to the comments and feedback. I LOVE MY CRACKER. I was also pleasantly surprised to find I now enjoy freshly cracked walnuts because it doesn’t have the bitter taste I’ve avoided.

It contains the exploding shrapnel of shells – I do cup the opening to be safe. My 10 year old nephew can crack nuts with it. It requires much less force than other crackers. There’s no danger of crimping my own fingers. It handles all nut sizes from unopened pistachios, hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, and my last ultimate test – brazil nuts with ease.

Seriously had no idea I’d enjoy cracking a nut a day, but it’s sheer pleasure with this heavy duty, cast iron piece of bludgeoning self defense cool tool.
