The Ultimate Macadamia Nut Cracker

Our Ultimate Nutcracker is built to last for generations. The jaws are made of hardened steel and rotate on ball bearings to assure years of smooth operation. The solid machined gripper teeth have grooves in the jaws for superior nut gripping power and are slanted downward to hold the nut in place for easy cracking. All steel parts are powder coated and fused to the steel to prevent corrosion and add to the strength of the nutcracker. Then it is all hand tightened with steel locking nuts, bolts, washers and screws. The pivot screw is made of stainless steel to be strong enough to withstand years of use. Very smooth operation and very easy to use on a tabletop, no extra clamps are needed. Its brilliant ergonomic design lets the machine use gravity and leverage to do most of the work, as you easily pull down on the lever to crack the nuts effortlessly and quickly. Even a child can use this wonderful nutcracker.

This cracker has been tested and found to be a very efficient tabletop cracker and also one that is safe and easy to use by young and old. This quality cracker handles the job effortlessly and quickly. A great gift for anyone who loves fresh macadamia nuts. Our Ultimate cracker is also an excellent tool for cracking black walnuts.
