A Crushing Cabinet was a torture device consisting of an iron cabinet in which a person was slowly crushed, as they found the walls, floor and ceiling closing in. The crushing walls were activated by closing the door shut.[3]


A Crushing Cabinet could be found inside the Interrogation Room in Azkaban.[2]

Borgin and Burkes owned a Crushing Cabinet, at least during the summer of 1992, when Harry Potter hid in it to hide from Draco Malfoy after accidentally travelling to Knockturn Alley via the Floo Network.[1]
