This works on all sizes of nuts with ease. Points to note that I could not find in the instructions are that the anvil barrel can be adjusted by screwing or unscrewing it to accommodate large nuts eg Wallnuts to Almonds - for smaller nuts you have to unscrew the anvil barrel, completely removing it. If you then turn the anvil barrel around and screw it back in the nut cracker will then handle smaller nuts, such as Hazelnuts - on arrival our nut cracker was set up to handle large nuts. A little inconvenient but can be accomplished in a matter of seconds - but a pain if you are randomly making your way through the nut bowl a little drunk at Christmas. Surely a bit of a design tweak could overcome this and make it the perfect nut cracker. However, it's relatively cheep and being a dab hand at woodwork I may mount two alternatively set up nut crackers on a larger wooden base.

I bought this Nutcracker just before Christmas. I have bought several Nutcrackers before, but this one is the business. It will be the only Nutcracker you will ever need. It is well constructed and strong. It cracks 'Brazil Nuts' with ease. My young Grand Daughter managed to do it, using this cracker. One of the other reviewers mentioned "if you want nuts flying around the room etc". Well all can say, is that it was being used wrongly. This Nutcracker never failed once. If like me you have bought many inferior products. Then this one is for you. I give it 5 Stars with no problem at all.

Great buy. Even our nearly 5 year old daughter loves to operate this 'machine' cracking more walnuts then anyone in the household can eat. Have not tried it on any other kind of nuts but most likely their resistance would be futile.

Hesitated before buying as I wondered if the device would take much space in the cupboard with its long handle.
The handle can easily be unscrewed reducing the size so it can fit back in the tiny box it came in. Have not placed it in storage ever since it arrived however.

Absolutely delighted with the device. One of those "exactly what it says on the tin" pieces of equipment.

If you like exploding nuts, these are the crackers for you. I still have pieces of shell up my nose. Quite well made, but doesn't half make a mess.
