5 Reasons Why This Nutcracker Is The Best

5 Reasons Why This Nutcracker Is The Best

When it comes to designing and making great products for the home you want something stylish but practical and we have designed the perfect nutcracker to use with every type of nut.

This cast iron nutcracker was designed by our main product developer back in the 1990's when he was using newspaper on his lap to catch the nut shells as he cracked nuts with a hand held cracker. 'I'm sure I can invent something better than this' he thought and the result is this stylish, hard working, hard wearing practical nutcracker. A bit like him we think, but don't say we said that !!! This nutcracker makes a great gift idea too but let us tell you our five great reasons that this is the cracker for you this Christmas.
Cast Iron Nutcracker With Bowl Catcher
1. Stylish Design. This nutcracker can be left out on display all year round it looks so good.
2. Easy to use. This nutcracker is so easy to use a child can operate it. Perfect for those with joint or mobility problems as it is simply a matter of letting the turn handle do all of the hard work.
3. Fun to use. It makes cracking nuts fun and enjoyable as you slightly turn the handle and hear the nut shell begin to crack.
4. Hard wearing. This nutcracker has been made out of last a lifetime durable cast iron. It will still be cracking your nuts in 10 years time and beyond.
5. The cleanest nutcracker around with its handy shell catching bowl there will be no more nut shells all over your floor.
So for us it's the best nutcracker on the market and one you will be pleased you bought year after year. It can be easily cleaned too with just a wipe over with a damp cloth every now and again. But don't spend too long thinking about it as we tend to run out of stock every year just before Christmas as they are so popular with men and women alike. We hope you like our reasons to buy one but we hope you love your cast iron nut cracker even more.

    5 Best Nuts For Cracking

    5 Best Nuts For Cracking

    When it comes to cracking nuts we know a thing or two.
    We designed our cast iron nut cracker to crack as many types of shelled nut as possible and even amended the design to accommodate some of the largest walnuts and smallest hazelnuts.
    Cast iron Nut Cracker With Shell Catcher
     
    A great feature of this nut cracker is that it has a built in catching bowl around the cracker which catches all those shells and bits that you don't want all over your floor.
    It is cast in solid cast iron which is hard and durable and makes cracking nuts one of the easiest activities to have fun with in your kitchen.
    Not only that, the design is beautiful and so we are sure you will want to keep this ornamental device on show all year round. Anyway lets get to our top 5 nuts for cracking in this fab cast iron nut cracker.
    1. Walnut
    It has to be the Walnut, not only healthy and nutritious as all nuts are (by the way but the Walnut it is said will protect your brain). So it gets our No. 1 spot every time. It's easy to crack in all sizes using our cracker.
    2. Brazil Nuts
    Brazil nuts, packed with selenium they are good for your mood and although the shells are tougher and a tricky shape they crack perfectly well under the cast iron cracking plate.

    3.Hazelnuts.
    Hazelnuts, these are small and sweet and we love them, what better reason to put them at no 3. Our cracking plate screws all the way down and so these little sweeties are no problem. 
    4.Pecan Nuts.
    Pecan nuts are chewy and buttery and so delightful when cooked with Brussels sprouts (see the recipe below). Just perfect with a Christmas roast or absolutely delicious straight from the shell.
    5.Macadamia Nuts.
    Macadamia nuts are sweet and great to use if you are on a gluten free diet as they are free from gluten and yet provide your body with some great vitamins and minerals including many B vitamins.
    So there's our top 5 cracking nuts, so what are you waiting for? Go get cracking with your new nut cracker and don't forget to try out the recipe below.
