It is about time that someone comes up with a better designed nutcracker. Our hunt for a better nutcracker came up with a few more unorthodox designs including some that uses a screw design to provide better control for cracking nuts. Ultimately, the lever design is still the best for us as it requires the least cracking effort. We finally settled on the Drosselmeyer Nutcracker as not only does it have a few advantages over all the other nutcrackers, it looks fantastic as well.
The Drosselmeyer Nutcracker has a slender and stylish design but don’t be fooled as this nutcracker means business. It has quite a bit of heft and holding it, you know that it won’t suddenly give way while cracking the toughest nuts. It works with pistachios, pecans, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts and brazil nuts, cracking them all effortlessly. The Drosselmeyer Nutcracker has a double lever action that gives very precise control over the amount of force so that you do not crush the nut along with the shell. The double lever action also makes it one of the most powerful nutcracker on the market.
The container collects the shell and also ensures that pieces of nut shell does not get scattered all over the place when they get cracked. This is a common problem with nutcrackers using the lever design. Just cover the opening with the palm of your hand when you squeeze the lever and everything stays in the container.
The Drosselmeyer Nutcracker is an award winning nutcracker that is designed and made in Sweden. It has even been picked as one of Oprah’s Favorite Thing.
