Leave Comments: I have purchased three of the machines. I have had them for 4 or 5 years. I was a skeptic until I received my first. I have been very satisfied with the product. I have had trouble with the handles breaking. I contacted the company about the issue, just to find out that they were aware of the issue on the older model and the problem had been resolved with a heaver gage handle. They promptly send me new handles and have not had any further issues. The support I received was awesome and they speak English.

Leave Comments: Your "goody getter" works great!! I am ordering a second one as a gift for my aunt and uncle, as well as extra shears. The shears do a fantastic job of gettin large pieces instead of pickin, diggin, an makin a mess outa nut meats!! They do wear out, but are very economically replaced. My recommendation: if you get the cracker, get extra shears, and invite some of your squirrely friends over for a natures harvest party!!

Leave Comments: Wow! Simply wow. I have one of these by benovlence, or kindness. When I cracked the first hard shelled Black Walnut I was simply amazed at how the device shattered the shell, exposing the nut meat and the numbers of nut meats that simply fell out of the shell. You do have to do some cutting with the nippers but because the device does such a magnificant job the nipping away of the shell is rather quick because of the fracturing of the shell. If you have a few hundred or over a thousand nuts to crack as I, this Goodie Getter will save you pain and agony and long hours of cracking any other way. Before I used a bench vice. It cracked the nuts, but I had a lot of nipping to do and because the shell was not shattered with fracture lines it was more difficult to separate the meat from the shell. You will not be disappointed and once you crack your first black walnut you will be amazed.

Leave Comments: I received my GGG last week and immediately went to cracking nits harvested 2 years ago. Cracked a bucket full in about 1.5 hours. The nuts came out in big pieces and was well pleased. I would recommend this cracker if you are harvesting for yourself and want a good tool to help you get the nuts out.

Leave Comments: I've been using this product for 3 years and absolutely love it. I recommended it all the time to people and have taken it to a church social and demonstrated it. I usually crack out about 30-35 lbs of nut meat. Best thing that I have found out there and it's extremely easy to use.

Leave Comments: I love my machine. I used a friends for a year and got mine for my birthday. I can crack pecans from the very smallest (1/2 inch) to the very largest black walnut and get quarters most of the time.

Leave Comments: Grandpa - Your Goody Getter works great! Bought it 2 months ago, and already have cracked 8 mason quart jars full of black walnuts. Glad I bought it. Beats the H out of using a vise, which is what I used last year. And that included nipper also helps out tremendously. Thank you Grandpa. MM

Leave Comments: I purchased one of these about 5-6 years ago and cannot tell you how pleased I am.....hundreds of pounds of walnuts processed with a good number of quarters each time! My wife loves black walnuts and it is a Christmas tradition to crack a few quart jars full...much better quality that what you get from Hammons. Will be purchasing a second cracker as a backup this year. Best cracker I have found! Many thanks.

Leave Comments: Just received my goody getter today super fast shipping.I immediately took it out and started cracking and shelling out perfect walnuts. I’ve used a number of methods of cracking walnuts and this is by far the best. Most of the kernels come out perfectly whole it’s unbelievable! Don’t waste your time and money on anything else. This one works!!

Message: Just wanted to let you know I really like your machine. No more mashed thumbs using a hammer. Have cracked two one gallon freezer bags full of Black Walnuts so far. If you follow the instructions and keep the machine lubricated it should last a long time. "When mama's happy everybody is happy"

Leave Comments: You get what you pay for, and this nut cracker is worth at least every penny! This tool makes a once arduous process a breeze. Processing black walnuts is something I actually look forward to now. I wish everything was built as well and works as well as Grandpa's Goody Getter!
