The KINETIC KRACKER cracks approximately 20 pecans per minute! It has a fan cooled gear motor that cracks a nut with each revolution. This pecan nut cracker will not over crack or crush pecans. Cracked nuts drop out the bottom into (your) pan or onto table. The shield prevents shell splatter. Includes a handy carrying strap. If you crack a lot of pecans, you will appreciate the speed and ease of the Kinetic Kracker.
The Kinetic Kracker uses a rotating cylinder to crack the nuts. As the cylinder spins, you place a nut in the opening in the cracking compartment about every two seconds. The cylinder continues to spin. When it has spun to the other side, the anvil rams the nut and cracks it. A protective shield keeps the hull from flying all over the room. As the cylinder continues to spin, the opening in the cracking compartment drops the cracked nut out the bottom and the process starts all over again. It takes a little while to get used to putting the nuts in at the right time. But, once you get the hang of it, it works really well. The anvil automatically adjusts to any length nut. Adjustments can be made if over-cracking or under-cracking. Cracker is run by a single-phase 110/115 volt 1/50 hp induction motor. The manufacturer offers a one year warranty. The cracker weighs 15 pounds.
