The Crustastun is a revolutionary countertop appliance designed specifically for the humane killing of crustaceans.
It utilises an electro-stunning method to target the brain centres of the shellfish, interrupting nerve function and thereby stopping the animal from feeling pain.
The animal is stunned in less than half a second, and killed within 10 seconds, which is remarkably quicker than boiling, which can take up to three minutes.
The Crustastun also boasts the additional benefit of improving the taste and texture of the end-product, as the process of stunning the animal accelerates the tenderisation of the meat.
