Named for the toymaker in Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, this nutcracker makes quick work of removing shells of nearly any sized nut. Simply insert the nut, cover the opening, and give the handle a gentle squeeze to get a perfectly shelled nut without messy shell fragments flying about. The entire assembly is easily detached for cleaning. The cone shape stands upright on the table, lending a handsome presence to holiday festivities or year round. Made from precision die-cast zinc.
