Nutcracker ($39) – cracking nuts have never been so easy and fun. No more of those old tools where you’ll end up squeezing your finger and having nutshells all over the floor.
The solid stainless steel base, domed top in black rubber and non-slip rubber bottom to protect against scratched table tops, all bear witness to attention-to-detail for appearance, quality and practicality. But the real genius of this nutcracker is the ribbed metal fitting on the underside of the dome that ensures that only a light tap is needed to split the shell.
I’m quite sure that the “successful nut-cracking by lightly tapping” part could be replaced with “successful nut-cracking by bringing it all on”.
