The Sausage Maker Three Prong Pricker is used to create tiny holes in the casing after stuffing to allow air to escape. We’ve been selling this product for nearly 40 years now, and it continues to be made here in the U.S.A. It’s injection molded from a durable resin and fitted with three incredibly sharp, small diameter needles. This is the tool that many of our competitors have imitated, but no one can quite copy. Just toss it in a kitchen drawer and it’ll last you a lifetime. For removing air pockets in natural or fibrous casings. 5 1/2″ long.
