First created by Lee Manufacturing Company in 1976, many thousands were made with plywood. Now the Electric Pea Sheller, Sr. (also branded as the Electric Wizard Bean & Pea Sheller or formerly the Electric Mr. Pea Sheller) is constructed of great looking and durable aluminum which makes it much easier to clean after shelling a bushel basket of beans. Measuring approximately 16" in length and 9" tall (weighs under 20 lbs), this pea sheller is small enough to store easily and move from kitchen counter, to dining room table to patio without much effort. Yet its powerful 1/15 horsepower motor will make quick work of pea shelling. Plug into any outlet and you are ready to get to work.
Our shelling rollers have "teeth" or splines. They grip the bean pods and pull them through. Little or no slipping. Note: The roller spacing is NOT adjustable. If you feel that roller adjustment is critical for your satisfaction, please shop for a more expensive sheller that offers that feature.
The drive belt is totally enclosed for safe operation and a cooling fan helps to prevent overheating of the motor.
The Electric Pea Sheller, Sr. arrives at your door fully assembled and ready to run right out of the box! Plug it in, turn on the switch and you are shelling peas faster than you ever could by hand!
It will shell many types of beans including black-eyed peas, purple hulled peas, English peas, and small Crowder peas. Any type of "cowpea" should work well with this unit.

Directions for Use
ALWAYS start by washing the produce first! Peas or beans MUST be ripe and easily shelled by hand. If they are not ripe or overly dry you will have some difficulty with the operation and performance of this pea sheller.
Feed the hull end of the bean in first. Lima (butter) beans must be fed into the rollers at an angle with the thick, vine end first. These are tougher to shell and may occasionally require the operator to carefully pull a pod through the rollers.
If the peas were picked green and placed in the refrigerator, the sheller may have problems with the beans. Let the beans come to room temperature first.
Pea Shelling Tips and Tricks
If your peas or beans are mashing when shelling, your beans are either too green, too dry or the pods are overly tough from the growing conditions. You may be able to overcome the mashing/smashing issue by following a few easy steps. 1. Blanch the beans/peas (in the pod) in boiling water for 1 to 4 minutes. 2. Then quickly cool them in cold water in your sink.
This will make the pods more tender. Then shell as normal.
If you are going to freeze your peas after shelling, blanch them (after shelling, no pods) for 4 minutes and the place in them in the freezer in an appropriate container.
