Our Electric Pecan Cracker Foot Switch puts YOU in control of your cracker speed. This powerful cracker cracks fast but with the Foot Switch- you control the speed. It is unadvisable to let the cracker rotate without a nut in place. This Foot Switch prevents that from happening and therefore extends the life of the cracker. The Foot Switch is simple to use! Simply plug the cracker into the switch and the switch into the wall-- and done! You are ready to start cracking!
