Mr. Pea Sheller Operating instructions.

Oil bearing surfaces and gears with light oil before using.  MR. Pea Sheller does a good job shelling peas or beans with out special attachments or adjustments. 

Wash produce first and leave hulls slightly wet.  Produce should be fed through the opening.  Do not feed vines or other foreign objects through rollers.  Butter beans should be fed through at an angle with thick vine end feeding through first.  Most peas can be fed straight through rollers.  In all cases the peas or beans should be RIPE before they are ready for the machine shelling.  They should be fully developed and of sufficient size with the pea or edible portion about 1/4" or larger for best results.  Peas that are too green or that have been allowed to dry very hard will present a problem.  Usually vine ripe produce can be shelled immediately after gathering. 

When peas are ready for machine shelling, you will be amazed at what MR. Peas Sheller can do!

The Best Pea and Bean Shelling Ideas We Know

Beans and peas that just will not shell without mashing probably have either very tough pods due to growing conditions, or may be too green or too dry.  These may be shelled very easily by using the following method:

The peas or beans, in the pod, are blanched in boiling water from one to four minutes.  Cool quickly in cold water.  Now feed them through your Mr. Pea Sheller's special rollers.  The results will please you.

This process makes the pods or hulls tender enough that even the thin skin around the peas or beans are not damaged, and you can shell them very quickly.

One minute blanching will usually soften the toughest of pods so that shelling is now easy.  If you are preparing the produce for your freezer, then blanch the peas or beans four minutes and freeze after shelling.

MR. Pea Sheller does an excellent job shelling Black eye, Purple Hulls, Cream Peas as well as Butter Beans.  The produce MUST BE RIPE!  If too green and tough for your hands to shell then they are not ready for the machine.  This small, efficient and inexpensive pea and bean Sheller for the home use is designed for long life.  Saves hours of tedious work.  Avoid getting foreign objects in the peas.  Peas roll out of trough into your pie pan or shallow pan.  The picture may make the top appear as if it is made of clear Plexiglas or plastic.  It is not.  It is only a reflection of the bright plated steel construction. 

The special separated roller design weighs approx 1-1/4 Lbs.  size 4" x 8" x 8".  No adjustments to make.  Tough nylon bearings.  Upper shaft fits most 100 watt hand mixers.  If using a heavy drill-motor, pack some support under it, such as folded towels.  Also a hand crank is available for manual shelling.  Do not leave hand crank on the machine if you are shelling electrically.  Remove handle for your safety.  We urge you to use your hand mixer or drill as most users do.  This makes your job easier and effortless.  The upper shaft should always turn in a clock wise direction, so use the appropriate hole in your mixer when attaching it to the shaft.
