Bought it as a gift for my mother. She absolutely loves it.
Best black walnut cracker!
Once you start to get the amount of pressure enquired getting the goodies is so much fun and satisfying.
Where have you been all my life?
Love this nut cracker! Definitely beats using wrenches and hammers It’s sturdy, easy to use and very well built. I also really liked the videos. Also shipped a lot faster than I expected. Thank you!
Did good!!! Next year I’m gonna pick up more walnuts….. delicious!!!!! Pecans get bugs to often …. Gonna get my walnuts dehulled sooner to to avoid mold too!!!
Works as advertised. I have both hickory nuts and black walnuts on my property. Grandpas goody getter works as advertised. Make sure you have it mounted well on a secure surface. Other than that nothing else to do but pull the lever and enjoy.
Absolutely The BEST black walnut cracker on the market!
This is fabulous, fantastic machine; love it so much!! I did try other black walnut crackers, - nothing can be compared to Grandpa's Goody Gather! It is worth every dollar you pay for it, &, much more!! With GGG it's so easy to open black walnuts, I'm having so much fun! Soak b. walnuts in water overnight or longer, you'll have BIG (half of the nut!) pieces! I'm so grateful to GENIUS, who invented such an incredible devise!
Does a good job
Goody Getter worked ok when first trying it out, but seemed weak as it flexed side to side easily. After closer inspection I found the bolts to be a little loose. After tightening them it works much better. I have a CE Potter cracker also. The Goody Getter has a little bit more control while cracking because of the longer handle. Over all, it;s a good cracker. Just remember, Grandpa is getting older and may not have tightened everything as much as is needed. The Duke may have got shot or there could have been an intense part of the show at that time. So just check it over to see if it needs a little tweaking, just don't make anything too tight.
Black walnut cracker
What can I say. This thing is what it is cracked up to be. A bit pricy but a great cracker and very sturdy.
Great quality cracker!
A well built machine that operates as advertised. Working my way through this falls pecan crop & getting great quality halves. Mom set aside a few baskets of pignut hickories from back home. Can’t wait to see how this beefy machine holds up against my old nemesis!
walnut cracker use
Good product, easy to use. Lower anvil broke early, replaced promptly! Looks like the side pieces need to be a little thicker metal. Side twist sometime on difficult nuts. Overall very pleased.
Excellent- easy to use
black walnut nut cracker
great.works smootly.very satisfied
Really nice. Easy to use and just like the video.
greatest nut cracker ever!
This nut cracker is totally worth it. It is very durable-no cheap or plastic parts. We use it for cracking black walnuts and hickory nuts. It cracks black walnuts with ease. I'm still "experimenting" using it for cracking hickory nuts. Can't seem to get them to crack as well as the black walnuts but it does crack them. The shears that we also received with the nutcracker is great as well! After the hickory nuts are cracked it works wonders to "re-crack" parts of the shell to help get the meat out easier. Great time saver for the nutcracker and shears. No doubt about it-I'd highly recommend this product!!
This was bought as a gift for my dad. He uses it all the time and loves it!!
Black walnut nut cracker
This was a gift for my son who has a huge black walnut tree on his property in Virginia. He sent a picture of his sons(7 and 9) using it to crack the walnuts. He said the nutcracker was great. They were having trouble getting big pieces of walnuts. He said he assumed they use needed more practice. Suggestions.
Grandpa's Goody Getter
They need to rearward more farther so the lower ram can go down more. If black walnut nut size is more than 1 5/8 inches, then it will not fit. I know some customers had the problem with larger size so they do another method to crack for the larger sizes. Hope it helps. Dennis
Love this nutcracker
This is a very well-designed and fun to use product. Before I purchased it, I was cracking open black walnuts with a small hammer and extracting the nut meats with a pick. That was very tedious and slow. With this awesome tool, I can crack open the black walnuts with ease and use the supplied clippers to finish getting the nuts. Now this job is pleasant, easy, and fast!
We anchored this to a piece of butcher block. It works perfect. Well built. The best walnut cracker by far. Gets the job done, no shells flying everywhere. I highly recommend.
This cracker is fantastic. It saves so much time and I was able to make a quick portable setup so I can use it easily inside. What a great design!
A very useful product
It’s easy to get up and running and cracks most anything you can give it.
