A. No, you can bolt it down but it will still work -free standing.
Q. Do you loose some oyster juice when you shuck with this tool?
A. Yes. If you want the juice place this tool in a clean stainless steel pan. The juice can then be caught, filtered and reused. We have been shucking oysters for 50 years and our experience has shown the best juice is trapped inside the oyster’s inner body. The expelled water leaving the oyster’s system is trapped in the area between the meat and the shell. This water is about 10% . This liquid carries away unwanted shell, sand and by products. The oyster is still full of the best flavored juice.
Q. Do you have any testimonials?
Kerry Shelby from Key West Kitchen:
“Stone crabs are one of my favorite foods in Key West. Their sweet, firm meat not only tastes amazingly good, but it also signals that the summer season is over and the weather in Key West is going to be perfect for the next eight months. The fishmongers in Key West are more than happy to crack their dense armor for you, but I prefer to crack my own. Don’t even think about those little hand-held crab crackers that work so well on blue crabs. These guys are tough! You need serious weaponry. That is exactly what the EZ Cracker from Webb’s World Industries is. Serious weaponry. Actually, the trick to using it is to realize its power. You simply have to tap it to perfectly crack these otherwise unpenetrable crab shells. It’s not cheap, but it will last forever.”
Jack Smith- aka Satisfied Customer:
“I was lucky enough to be good friends with Skip when he brainstormed the Cracker and I still have and use one of the prototypes! I got laid off by the phone company and sold Crackers, cold-calling seafood restaurants in the area! Watched Webb’s World grow the product and break out new models. Toasted with home brew when big events like Disney picking it up and when other chains of seafood restaurants would sign on! I still have a folder with newspaper articles, the -left overs of my business cards, etc. As a Florida cracker, I can attest to the heritage…and it is a true-blue multi-generational Florida Cracker!”
Tom Chin, Executive Chef Stouffer Vinoy Resort:
“The Florida Cracker is safe, effective and one of the most valued -appliances in my kitchen.”
