this is the best nut cracker I have ever used. very simple to operate. I will be buying another one. thank you for inventing this. Ken Kegley
It works just like it's supposed to. Fantastic!
I have yet to find another product that is as easy to use and as robust as the good getter. This gadget makes cracking all types of nuts so easy and fun. Do not waste a minute and get yourself one. Store bought nuts are treated with preservatives and other artificial flavorings. Get yourself one of these and enjoy the taste of FRESH walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, etc. You won’t regret this purchase!
Love this nutcracker
After breaking numerous ordinary nutcrackers cracking my black walnuts, hitting my thumb with a hammer while banging them open, and even putting black walnuts in a burlap sack and driving back and forth over the bag with my SUV, this nutcracker cracks them nicely with a minimum of effort thanks to the leverage of the hammer without totally destroying the nut inside. If you have black walnut trees, invest in a nutcracker designed to do the job. Oh ... and scrounge up an antique corn kernal decobber to get the green husks off in the first place before you let them dry.
Works well for our black walnuts! Arrived quickly!
Fantastic item. Works great on my black walnuts and butternuts. Highly recommended.
With a bushel of nuts to hull know this will be a time saver. I did some to tiry it out, got a half a pint of nice nut meat. I tried different ways to hull them but none that came close to the Goody Getter. Well worth the money spent, in time and quality of nut meat.
I ordered a walnut cracker and had a few issues with my payment for international shipping and contacted the seller directly. He helped me immediately and efficiently! I bought this product for Father’s Day and it arrived two weeks earlier than planned! I would highly recommend buying from this company.
This is my second one. I bought the first one last year and liked it so well I got the second one so my wife and I can crack together.
Shipping was prompt, but cracker works better than I expected and very easy to use. No problem cracking hard black walnuts with ease.
This one I got for my cousin.. I have used one for several years Worksgreat. Follow instructions on lubrication. Follow advice on soaking walnuts that start to shatter too badly. Also fantastic on english walnuts, good on pecans. I bought the new rams for my older machine. Definitely work better, except..... I quickly noticed a problem with movement of the nut during the process. I finally noticed that the upper ram had become packed (and I mean PACKED!!) with shell debris. I have to take it off the machine to work it free (I mean PACKED!!!) The problem may relate to my Thomas variety, which tapers into an elongated oval at each end, with very narrow points. They still crack very well, yielding a lot of free quarters, very thin shelled nut, good quality, very productive (sometimes too heavy.). I am going to have to pay attention going forward to checking the upper ram more frequently. I bought an electric powered cracker that works pretty well, but I am (at this point) faster with the Grandpa machine, and at only 73 still don’t mind the extra effort.
It doesn’t even aggravate my tendonitis. Remarkable use of cams to make it effortless. And damn if it doesn’t pop open black walnuts!
This has been a lot easier and faster than ever. This has been worth the cost. I am very happy with the nut cracker.
Let my brother-in-law try it out and he liked it very much. Brought me a small bucket of cracked black walnuts and they were really easy to shell, especially with the snips. Sure beats the old brick and hammer
I've used it on almonds and black walnuts. No problems. Follow the directions and you're good to go. Support these Americans.
It works as advertised and is a pleasure to use.
My experience using Grandpa's Goody Getter has been good. It is much better than using a hammer or a vice. It cracks all around and throughout the shell to make it easier to peel off. I also like the clippers that comes with it. It is much better than the clipper I used to use and now I can get all the nut meats out.
Having used the Master Nutrcracker and wanting something like it, but not wanting a knock-off or wait months and months for their production to meet demand, I found this great device on an internet search. It’s just as good, if not better in some respects, than the Master. We even used it with a group of kids we teach and they all were able to crack black walnuts no problem. With a few minutes practice you’ll be cracking out large pieces of black walnut or hickory with little effort. Great design, price, shipping speed, and customer service!
Easy to use! Cut cracking time in half!
