I don't know if this is the best place for my question, but I suppose someone will kindly tell me if so.
I'm looking for good quality handtool for use in the kitchen or for harvest processing.
I have found some interesting websites in the USA an the UK and one oil press in Holland.
As I am living in Belgium, I will have to import stuff from this companies. The USA would be very expensive with all the aditional costs and risks, the UK supplier doesn't send outside the UK, remains only the oil press.
Does anyone know a brand of a supplier on main land Europe?
If I know a brand, I might be able to find a supplier in Belgium or get it at home with travellers who can pick it up.
I will try this myself for the UK next summer, but USA is harder to get.
Looking for a blender, sweet chestnut pealer, walnut pealer, ...
A technique I've developed for acorns, which would likely work for chestnuts, is to simply cut each nut in half with a pair of garden clippers/pruners. Dry for a short while and the nut halves should drop easily out of the shell, or clip again into quarters and they should separate immediately. Another advantage is that a worm is usually only in half or quarter of the nut and this can be separated at the same time....
Well Tyrr, I have exactly the same problem as you have!
I cannot find the stainless steel juicer that exists in the US... as they would not send to Europe.
If you want we can inform each other about our inquiries, and more over about what we find!
If this appeal to you, just drop me a PM.
Also, what is the oil press, as I will want one too.
