If you’ve never read the famous tale of the Nutcracker, you’re missing out on a real cracker of a story.
It’s not just about an implement for extracting nuts from their shells, it’s a magical tale of childhood and wonder, where toys come alive and the good guys win out. And pivotal to the story is Councillor Drosselmeyer – the toymaker who creates the extraordinary wooden nutcracker – shaped like a little boy.
This little description, however, is
about an implement for opening nuts. It’s designed by the Swedish Drosselmeyer Design Group – who were inspired by the legendary toy maker to create an implement that has its own special whimsy about it. It's widely regarded as the most powerful nutcracker around, even though it just required a simple one-handed squeeze to operate. The clever double-lever mechanism does all the work for you.
And you never know, perhaps in the middle of the night, this little nutcracker comes alive too…
Made in Sweden from heavy duty die-cast metal.
Precision designed in just three simple pieces, so that it functions smoothly and will last a lifetime.
First hand-held nutcracker to have a double-lever action and a container to collect broken shells.
- Quick, clean and easy way to crack most kinds of nuts, including walnuts!
