Description
Crustastun believes crustaceans should be killed humanely before cooking. Current methods of boiling live crabs and lobsters are unacceptable. Previously approved methods of so-called humane methods of killing crabs and lobsters have been shown to be wholly inadequate.

Crustaceans which are boiled alive can take 3 minutes to die and stop feeling pain. During this trauma, both taste and tenderness of the meat are negatively affected.

By stunning the lobster or crab with electricity the crustacean feels no pain within half a second and is dead within 5 - 10 seconds. Both the taste and texture of the meat remains perfect.

Chefs, restaurants and stores who order live crab, crayfish or lobster should consider the Crustastun an essential appliance where the consumer is becoming more aware of the common inhumane treatment of crustaceans.

How it works


The animal is placed belly down on a sprung tray in the unit. As the lid is closed, the shellfish and tray are pushed down by the electrode sponge into the saline solution. The operator then presses one of the stun buttons on the front of the machine and a current passes through the 13 brain centres of a lobster, or the two brain centres of a crab. 

Stunned in 0.5 seconds - Killed in under 10 seconds.
