OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer
Whether you are craving for a rich guacamole or a refreshing avocado juice, you will be better off using the OXO Good Grips when prepping your purple fruit. This is a neat kitchen utensil that performs the functions of three different tools. It features a thoughtful design that can complement your growing arsenal of useful kitchen gadgets.
There are three fundamental steps to getting the rich and creamy flesh of avocados. First, you have to split the fruit in half. This requires a kitchen knife or some other cutting tool. Next, you will have to remove the pit right in the center of the fruit. You do not need any tool for this as you can remove the pit with your bare hands. However, there are some people who use a spoon to scoop the pit out. Third, you will need your knife again to slice the flesh and separate it from its skin.
The OXO Good Grips combines all of these processes in one very convenient tool. The best part of this is the avocado slicer which looks more like your egg slicer. It has the right shape to dig right into the flesh. The “blades” provide you with 7 perfect slices of avocados in a jiffy.
Of course, you will not be able to obtain these awesome slices if you do not split the avocado first. For this step, you will use the Good Grip’s serrated blade. It is not as sharp as a knife but it does the trick of splitting your avocado in half. Its design also makes it safe in the hands. In case of a slip, you will never cut your hand.
Once split, it is now the turn of the stainless steel pitter to do its job. It looks like an ice cream scoop hidden underneath the large handle of the Good Grip. All you need is to put it over the pit, give it a twist, and off comes the avocado pit. This gives you access to the creamy flesh, cutting it into seven nice slices.
Like all OXO products, you can rely on the Good Grip’s quality craftsmanship. The grip is also comfortable to hold. It doesn’t slip, too. Best of all, you can toss the Good Grip straight into your dishwasher for a thorough cleaning.
The OXO Good Grips is a simple yet very thoughtful kitchen gadget. Enjoying avocados is now more fun than ever.
