Any avocado aficionado knows the most annoying part of eating the beloved fruit (yes, it's a fruit) is all the prep work. The cutting, the slicing, the peeling, the scooping — it can be a lot of work, unless you're ready to dig directly into the avocado with a tortilla chip. What's a guacamole-lover to do?
Lucky for you, a handy tool from OXO wants to help you streamline all your avocado prep.
This three-in-one avocado slicer, pitter, and scooper does just what it claims to do. The plastic serrated blade slices through the skin, the three blades in the pitter grip the pit to remove it from the avocado, and the fan blades gently slice the avocado flesh into silky strips begging to be thrown on a salad, rice bowl or maybe just a plate with some lemon and sea salt.
Although the tool can be used for other pitted fruits like mango or papaya, it might be impossible to stop opening avocados once you're on a roll.
The only hardship you have to face now is trying to find the perfect ripe avocado at the grocery store. Good luck with that.
