If I have an avacado the same width as the avacado slicer, then all is right with the world. A simple motion of pressing into the avacado half and pulling towards me, and I end up with evenly spaced slices. What could be simpler or quicker!
Alas, there is a downside. If your avacado is smaller in width than the slicer, your in for a messy situation. The slicer no longer slides through the avacado, it gets caught on the tough skin (it is wider than the avacado in this situation) and the once even slices are now mashed and part of the avacado peel sticks to the slicer. I spent more time cleaning up after the slicer and my slices were no longer uniform. In this case, I would have been better off using my knife.
It's also fairly simple to clean as well. I just run it under hot water for a minute and that pretty much gets it all off. Just make sure you do it right after using it. Then stick it in the washer, or if you hand wash, use a brush. No biggie.
I'm not usually big on specialized gadgets, but for as often as I eat avocados, this is more than worth the $$.
However, it claims to be dishwasher safe, but I put it in the dishwasher after the first few uses and noticed what looked like rust on the outer edge where the wire wraps around the rim. After noticing this, I started washing by hand and the problem has gone away. It's a little awkward to wash by hand and tears up sponges if you're not careful, but this is a minor complaint and only removes 1 star from the rating.
This is so much easier to use and I get more avocado meat this way. I squeeze the peel against the slicer as it cuts to make sure there is no meat left inside. Then I add the slices to my food as clean and even as a restaurant would.
Every time I use it I rinse it with water and wait to clean it later. I hand wash it and it gets visually clean from rinsing in running water. Sometimes I use a brush to get anything dried but all in all this is super easy to clean. Nothing is discolored yet after months of use. So this seems like it will last for some time. Yummy.
