I cut myself with a knife once trying to pare an avocado. This is great. Works perfectly, even if the fruit is a little hard. I carry it to work with me, so I can cut the avocado right before I eat it, so I always know it's fresh. Great idea! Great product.
I got it for my mom because she loves avocados, and she loves it and uses it all the time.
If you don't think you need an avocado slicer, you're wrong. You do. I've been slicing avocados the old fashioned way just fine for over 30 years. Bought this for my 10 year old who loves avocados as much as her mama. I've stolen it and now use this. I won't go back to a knife.
We absolutely love this avocado slicer. It's one of the few kitchen gadgets my wife approves of. We routinely use it and we have never had a problem with it.
Avocado? Yes, Please! This tool is awesome. Easy to cut open the fruit. Pit remover works well, just push onto the pit and give it a twist, and the pit pops right out. The best part is the slicer. Makes beautiful slices for a great presentation (see attached photo of slices, ok, one side came out perfect, I kind of gummed up the other side). The tool can then be used to scrape any remaining fruit out of the skin. Really happy I bought this tool!
