Zyliss® Nutcracker

Product number: 15491

Mary from our Buying Team is nuts about this cracker! “I always have a bag of mixed nuts on my desk to stave off the munchies and this de-shells hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds and brazil nuts one-handed, with very little effort required. It’s non-slip and I really like the way the holder retains the crushed shell to cut right down on mess.” Sounds like Zyliss have come up trumps again!

"Such a shame"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

I was bought this nut cracker for Christmas, and was initially very pleased. I have some other Zyliss products which are very good, and assumed this would be too! However, it is awkward to use unless you have a table, and even then it is difficult to control the pressure and you end up crushing the nut. I have no problem with a regular nut cracker, but this is just driving me to distraction.

"Nutcracker that doesn't crack nuts!"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

This product bears no relation to the description on the website. It requires considerable force to crack the nuts & even then it doesn't always work. The result is generally a mash of nut and shell, with bits distributed over the table. This is a very poor product.

"Zyliss Nutcrackers"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

My wife has just bought these today, 22 Dec 2011. I have to say they are almost useless. Hazelnuts can be cracked, walnuts are obliterated and almonds totally impossible. I cannot imagine the pressure required to crack almonds, I suspect the unit would break before the nut! They will be going back after Christmas and the nuts will be cracked with a hammer! I would rate these at 0 star but that is not an option.

"disappointment"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Having purchased my xmas nuts, what did I need? A nutcracker. Off we went to our local Lakeland to purchase this zyliss nutcracker. What a waste of time! It failed to crack a single nut! It went straight back.

"Drove me Nuts!"

Having had a bumper crop of almonds from our tree this year, I was really looking forward to "getting cracking" with this product and, from "Mary's" description in the write up it sounded idea and easy to use. Well, all I can say is Mary must be a contender for the Strongwoman of the Year! I tried this with no less than 10 nuts and not one of them came close to cracking - though I did! In case you're thinking that I might not be strong enough (and so did I at first) my burly husband had a go too with the same results! Sorry Lakeland, please ship with Mary next time!
