Like many people I love Alaska King Crab Legs. But the difficulty of getting through the shell discourages me from having them at home. Just by accident I stumbled across a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2TClA...
that led me to this website.
I bought four on line and they quickly delivered them to Canada. On my return to Puerto Vallarta I had a chance to use mine for the first time and it worked exactly as advertised.
That was the good news. Unfortunately at my local Costco KCLegs sell for roughly $55/Kg. So three legs were $25. Cheaper than a restaurant but still expensive.
How I wish I lived somewhere that hard-shelled crustaceans were so abundant that a Crabinator would be an essential piece of flatware! It looks like a brilliant device; best wishes to the inventors, and bon appetit to those using it.
This looks like a promising improvement over my usual tools--a rock, poi pounder, or my teeth.
How thick is the steel used for the working end? Does it feel like those long tines would bend if you cut off-angle? Or are they rock solid?
Did they give you a price break for buying 4?
I might need to get this for my mother. The grandparents take our son to a buffet that has crab legs and she is slightly embarrassed to whip out her kitchen shears.
