Kitchener Pecan and Nut Cracker
We just finished cracking walnuts and ended up with two gallon ziplock bags. We love this nut cracker. So easy to us and for such a great price! It is built very well for being so reasonable. I highly recommend it!!!

After receiving a gift box of pecans, this tool made it very easy to crack the shells and remove the nuts. It has an adjustable end to easily change sizes for large or small nuts. The only thing that might make it better is if it had suction cups on the bottom to hold it in place while you worked with it.

This nutcracker works very well; even on those old, HARD, Black Walnuts.
It does need to be clamped or otherwise affixed to a mount. The leverage generated is sufficient that if not securely mounted one might have to chase it all over the room.
We cracked over 2 lbs. of pecans and then about 2 lb. of Black Walnuts. Results were very good, cracking time was measured at 81 (minutes) for the whole pile of nuts.
I would recommend this item for anyone who cracks nuts - especially those which eventually appear in BROWNIES !!!

Inertia Nut cracker
This product is very well made , especially for the price. I only rated it average because it is somewhat diffucult to use. I realize it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how to use this product but I feel it should have come with some sort of instructions, or at the very least some helpful hints on how to best use it with each kind of nut. After several attempts one can figure out the best way to position the nut so that it does not destroy the meat inside. Overall I would say it is much better than the conventional nut cracker. You can crack alot more nuts with this product.

Well Worth The Price
Anyone who wants to crack dozens or hundreds of pecans should get this device.
It's easy to adjust for nut length, safe enough to hold the pecan while cracking, and requires minimal effort.
The nutmeat does not always come out whole, so a nut pick (I use a bamboo kabob skewer) helps if you want to get all the nutmeat.
Be aware that bits of shell may fly. I put the tool in a flat-bottomed wicker basket to solve this problem.
This is the best manual pecan cracker I and my Georgia cousins have ever found.

I've only used this device to crack walnuts, and it does an awesome job. If you crack your own walnuts, then I highly reccommend this cracker. It cracks the shell with very little, or no scarring to the nut.
