Well built and easy to use
Grandpa Knows His Stuff !
This is the best working black walnut cracker I have found. It's easy to set up and use . The design allows quick, efficient processing - without the mess ! It’s powerful enough to crack the hardest walnuts - but with a gentle touch - leaving good sized pieces of nut meat. What’s not to like!
Love it. So easy to use.
This thing is amazing
This thing is perfect for black walnuts! It seems like it will last a very long time as well. I love it.
Perfect for Hickory Nuts
This but cracker is uniquely designed but is very efficient in cracking difficult hickory nuts with ease.
Pending HARD testing
Haven’t used it much yet, so my review is really pending getting through the 70 lbs of walnuts hanging in my shop. With light use so far, it seems to perform as expected and it seems robustly built!
Good equipment for the price. Second machine purchased. Several hundreds of pounds cracked on first machine. Service on first machine has been excellent. Thank You
I was very happy with the way this product worked. It was even better than advertised. My only complaint and it’s not really a complaint is that it doesn’t come with the small nut ram. But I would still give it a 5+ stars!!!!
Black walnut cracker
Item as described . Read directions carefully. Definitely much quicker than a hammer and side cutters. Past experience with side cutters will be helpful. Maybe more expensive than most but I think the best manual nut cracker out there and is very well built.
Grandpa's cracker is a quality unit
The cam design is key. It slows as the nut nears cracking, allowing you to not shatter or pulverize the meat. The cracker assembly is easy and simple. This unit is very solid and should last many years.
Simple, Effective Black Walnut Crackin’
I have tried all kinds of techniques to crack the hundreds of black walnuts that fall from trees in my backyard each fall—pressure clamp, hammer and chisel, traditional squeezer. Now, I will look no further than Grandpa’s Goody Getter. It’s simple to set up, easy to use, and effective to get out nutmeats (and large, intact pieces at that)! Thanks for a great product!

Great to work with with. Very simple and not hard to work
Black walnut cracker
Very good, only nut I had a problem with was almonds. I would recommend this to everyone.
This speeds the process exceptionally. Although, the shears we received have broke. Very satisfied! Thank you.
Just buy it. It's awesome. If you have hickory or black walnuts and you're using rocks, hammers, and picks, you'll be amazed at this piece of machinery.. It saves sooooo much time! I bought this for my 73yo father. It's past nut season, so we only got to try out a few dozen nuts, but this thing is fantastic. One comment: On the videos we watched, it looked like the handle was being pulled down with a slight bit of muscle -- turns out, that is definitely not the case.. they're actually using ease as not to come down too hard on the nut.. You really need NO strength to crack a nut. Highly highly recommended. I can't wait til next season!
Product worked exactly as promised. Delivery was prompt.
I'm cracking Up!
There IS a learning curve to this. And I don't have anything to compare it to, as I've never attempted cracking Black Walnuts before. But I got 2 cups of BlackWalnut meats in 3 hours on my first attempt. It does my Hican nuts well too. I'll keep practicing, as there is a certain point that you have to stop cracking to nut, before it is completely crushed, a sweet spot, and every nut is not the same. The shears are invaluable.
Excellent! Very well made!
This thing works great! Recommend for sure! Just had minor issue at the start with slippage but quick check on their website and the remedy was there. Shears that came with it didn’t last long but that was kinda expected given the frequency of use. Overall worth the $ as it saves you a ton of time
Got this as a gift for my dad, says he really enjoys working with it, easy to use and speeds up cracking the walnuts exponentially
Grandpa’s Goodie Getter is the best
Love this cracker. We have pecan and walnut trees, and this cracker has made putting up the nuts so much easier. Effortless crack means I can get through more nuts before taking a break. Highly recommend.
