Nut crackers have rarely been given much adulation, forced to cede stardom to other implements, like corkscrews and bottle openers. But now, just in time for nut-cracking season, comes a very modern nutcracker from Normann Copenhagen that looks good and is easy to use—no small feat. An aluminum component that firmly grips small and big nuts is encased in a pliable silicone loop that makes bearing down on the nut a comfortable exercise—but then springs right back to form after the nut’s been cracked. No hard sell necessary. We’re sold.
