How to Choose A Quality Crab & Lobster Cracker
If you love seafood such as lobster or crab, chances are you will want to purchase a good quality crab claw cracker so that you can enjoy your favorite dish all year long. But how exactly do you go about choosing the right lobster claw cracker to get the job done? Don’t worry, we have a few suggestions to help you make the best purchase decision for your kitchen and your wallet.
The best seafood cracker for those who eat crab and lobster on a regular basis is going to be one that is made from stainless steel. A hard alloy will be able to handle the constant pressure of cracking hard shells as well as regular exposure to water and salt. While fancy seafood crackers with plastic grips or other plastic parts may look aesthetically pleasing, they are not as durable as the stainless steel option.
Cracking shells on crabs or lobsters requires a regular and constant application of pressure. Not only will other materials be prone to breakage, but they can also slip and cause injuries if you are not careful. The grooves and claw in the mouth of the lobster cracker are also important. Grooves that are too sharp or too deep can destroy the tender meat inside of the shell. On the other hand, grooves that are too shallow will prevent you from getting a firm grip on the shell before you crack it open. Look for a seafood cracker that has a moderate to wide groove pattern that will allow you to grip the surface firmly without damaging the delicious meat within.
You can purchase crab and lobster crackers on their own, but it is much better to look for a set. After all, once you get the shell open, you will have to take the meat out in order to enjoy it. Seafood forks that are paired with seafood crackers are long, thin, and perfectly crafted to fit into the small spaces inside of the shell. While you can always use the tip of a knife or even a long toothpick, a seafood fork is perfectly suited to the job.
