The Crustastun machine is a revolutionary appliance for stunning crustaceans. Developed as an alternative to traditional methods of killing lobster, crayfish, and crab, the Crustastun is recognised by a number of leading welfare groups as the most humane method of preparing live crustaceans for cooking.

The Crustastun interrupts the nerve function of the crustacean within half a second, meaning the animal can’t feel pain and is killed in under 10 seconds — this can take up to three minutes when boiling. This makes Crustastun a much quicker process compared to boiling, and more reliable than cutting the shellfish in half.
