Product Description

You have tried the rest. Now try the Best. This cracker was specially designed for use with the macadamia nuts. However TJ's nutcracker will crack any nut that fits in it's jaws. Macadamia nuts have the toughest shell found on Earth but with this cracker, all nuts have met their match. Other crackers require physical strength to crack the nut. TJs Nut cracker works with leverage. This cracker is so easy to operate a 2 year old can do it . Don't be fooled by cheap versions or think your hand held cracker can do the job of cracking Macadamia nuts. You will end up with a sore hand and broken cracker after a few nuts. NOTE ABOUT CRACKING ABILITY This will crack your nuts. Please be aware that "cleanliness" of your crack has to due with the quality of your nut, not this cracker.

While I was growing up in here in Hawaii we'd take the neighborhood macadamias that we'd find on the ground and crack them open with a hammer. Effective but slow going. What a blessing it is to have a real macadamia nut cracker. Bought this for my husband after I got tired of listening to him bang and bang to get the nuts open from our tree. Now he can sit in the living room and crack them while we watch tv! So easy to operate. Was mailed to me quickly too. Thanks for offering this great product!!

Love this crusher! Well worth the money. We have a Mac nut tree and raw Mac nuts are delicious. My four year old can use the crusher and has so much fun.

This mac cracker has saved me so much time cracking macadamia nuts. I prefer to eat nuts that have been recently harvested and are still in the shell to maximize freshness and nutritional benefits... I can use a normal handheld cracker for most nuts, but my precious in-shell macadamia's need something special... I was using the "Crack-a-mac" which uses a screw to crack open the mac, because it was cheap and fairly economical. I like that cracker. It did the job most of the time, but I would have to crack macs for like 1-2 hours if I wanted my make a batch of nut-based cheese... And my hand would be very tired from all the screwing motions... It was small which is good for travel but not for cracking a whole lot at once.

For this cracker, you just put on the lever - sometimes you may need to apply more pressure for the more difficult nuts - but so far I haven't come across a mac it hasn't cracked. I'm very petite too, so the cracker does a lot of the muscle work for me, making cracking these toughest nuts look like a breeze! This cracker is so simple and effective, and it can get the husk off quickly too. So far I've cracked at least 300 macs with it within the last 3 weeks. Definitely worth the money for me....

I think someone was complaining how not all the mac meats remain wholly intact during cracking... If the nut is still tightly attached to the shell... you're going to get some pieces. I use a metal nut pick to pry them off. This hasn't been an issue for me, since I like to just eat them straight or blend them in recipes. I'd say at least half my output the macadamias remain whole. I think this also depends on the quality of the nut and how ripe/ready it is.

A nutcracker that will crack a macadamia nut! Have tried so many and this one really works. If you love mac nuts, this is worth the price. Still need to watch out because the occasional one will spit the shell back at you.

It has that home made look but is very solid and has been great for our pile of macadamia nuts. Hazelnuts too.

We moved into a house with three macadamia nut trees, but until this we had not been able to eat any of the nuts because we couldn't crack them! This nut cracker works perfectly. It is solid and well constructed. I expect it to be used by the family for years and years to come.
