Great reviews for the nutcracker
"Crack Nuts Without the Mess. This handsome nutcracker works by putting a whole nut in the container and pulling the lever to allow the inside mechanism to smash the shell. Bits of shell stay in the heavy container." — The New York Times
About Drosselmeyer’s Collection
Drosselmeyer combines the strength of Swedish craftsmanship with groundbreaking functionality. Our collection of kitchen utensils and innovative candle holders act as a counterbalance to today’s throw-away society. But our goal is greater than that. We want to create products that last for generations.
"By far the best nutcracker I have owned. Cracks the nutshell and leaves the nut intact, and no nutshell pieces flying all over the place. Simply turn the nutcracker upside down to empty it. And it really looks like it is built to last forever!"
"Love this tea strainer! Feels luxurious while being functional. Easy to fill without leaking tea leaves, as it does in many other tea strainers. If you don't need one yourself, it's a great and appreciated gift."
"Nice, perfect for burning long candles as well as stumps left over from other candlesticks. Now there is no waste at all! Uses it mostly as a stump stake and is strongly considering buying another pair!"
Create more with less
Erik von Schoultz, Drosselmeyer's founder and Head of Design, has developed his own ingenious design process. It is based on finding a solution that requires the least amount of parts. Crafting objects by hand and exploring the relationship between body and tool are also part of the process. This way of working requires patience, but it has given us several unique and patented products.
