The Perfect Avocado Every Time
The plastic blade easily cuts through the skin and fruit of the avocado, without being sharp to the touch.

It's The Little Things
At OXO, we consistently address even the tiniest of pet peeves, because we know it’s the little things that make the biggest difference. We tested more than 700 different shaped and sized avocados to create a Slicer that splits, pits, slices, and scoops safely and effectively – lucky for us, avocados have the good fat!
Here's a Good Tip!
Under-ripe avocados? Tasting Table has the solution – just put them in a paper bag with a banana (yes, a banana!). The ethylene gas from the banana will help speed up the ripening process.

Top Customer Reviews
I have 2 things that I would recommend to improve this item.
1. The cutting blade needs to be slightly longer, avocados can drastically vary in size. This blade is too short for avocados on the larger end.
2. Again, since avocados range in size, the slicer/scooper isn’t going to fit all avocados very precisely. I have used an avocado slicer/scooper before that had flexible sides, which allowed you to more effectively cut/scoop different size avocados. If this tool had a longer blade and flexible sides on the slicer/scooper end, it would be perfect. I give it 4 stars because there are a couple things I would like to see improved.
Here’s my (secret) guac recipe:
5 ripe Avocados (mashed)
1 can Rotel tomatoes with chilies (completely drained) These come in mild, original, and hot; so you can control the spiciness of the guac by choosing the corresponding tomatoes with chilis.
1 lime, completely juiced (pulp is good too)
1 full bushel of cilantro (chopped fine). Make sure it is washed thoroughly as it seems cilantro will hold on to dirt/sand. Herb scissors really help with cilantro prep: http://www.amazon.com/RSVP-SNIP-Herb-Scissors/dp/B000TYKWMI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408712894&sr=8-1&keywords=herb+scissors
½ red onion (chopped fine)
Salt and pepper to taste. I have discovered there is no such thing as too much pepper. Salt also helps bring out the flavor of the avocados.
Just mash everything together with a potato masher.
I bring this to potlucks and make it at home and it always goes fast!
Please comment if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer : )
Cut the avocado in half, pop out the seed, and scoop/slice each half. The slices need to be pushed out, but thats not really a problem for me.
We have had it for quite some time and i just used it on a hard boiled egg in the same salad as our avocado. Certainly, this is not an egg slicer replacement, but for salad it's a great tool that saves making a mess.
I love avocados but did not love that I needed a knife, then a spoon to cut and scoop out the insides. There was also that awkward finagling of the pit. Will it come out easily this time or will it be burdensome?
The slicer has an attractive green color and is easy to grip and clean. I love that while the knife end can easily slice through any avocado skin, it will not cut mine!. Removing the pit is soooo much easier now.
And the avocado slicer end works too but it's not the best. It tastes some practice to get it right and if visually appealing sliced avocados is important to you, you'll love this! I personally don't need my avocados to be perfectly sliced and I find the hand-washing process in between the slicer to not be worth my time. But if you use a dishwasher, then you'll love it.
For anyone else that also loves tools designed to make prep work fun, I would like to humbly introduce you to the Chef'n StemGem Strawberry Huller which I love just as much, but for strawberries, obviously.
