But of course, you don’t have to take our word for it. There’s thousands of glowing reviews that sing this slicer’s praises.
“I’ve owned mine for over three years now,” shares one reviewer. “I use it fairly regularly at home. The knife on this slicer is more than sharp enough to cut an avocado in half quickly and easily, but not sharp enough to cut my skin. I’ve let my 10 year-old granddaughter use all the time since she was seven. (She loves avocados. Lol.) Pitting the avocado couldn’t be easier or safer. It has three slightly rounded, blunted, recessed blades that are sharp enough to grab the pit, but again, not sharp enough to cut skin. The finger hole allows you to push the pit out easily… Slicing and separating the avocado is where this tool really excels. In one fast, easy motion, I have seven even slices of avocado ready for my sandwich or salad. I didn’t even need to scrape it out with a spoon. Again, sharp enough to cut the avocado but no risk to the skin. Lastly, the rubber grip keeps it from slipping in my hand even when wet… I love this slicer and would definitely buy it again.”
“I like avocados. However, I found myself not buying them as frequently as I’d like to eat them because, frankly, they’re a messy, dangerous, pain-in-the-butt to open. Not anymore! From the plastic knife (no more accidental cuts!) to the handy scooper (such a time saver!), this little gadget is well worth the room it takes up in my utensil drawer. The only issue I had was that the pit-puller does not work on smaller and not evenly halved avocados, but it works nicely on regular sized ones and/or ones that have been properly halved. Overall, highly recommended!”
“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!”
And in a review titled “DO IT,” another enthusiastic reviewer said, “What an awesome tool this is! I should have gotten one of these years ago! Living in SoCal, I get avocados from the Farmer’s Market all year long and this incredible tool is just fantastic. The ‘knife’ is plastic, yet sharp and cuts through the skin like butter! Then you flip it on it’s side and place the prongs over the pit and push in. The pit comes out and you push from the opposite side and it releases right into the garbage can… no more dangerously stabbing the pit with a sharp knife to lift it out and then struggling to get it off the knife! Then, flip the tool over for the third time and slide it from top to bottom for the PERFECT slices! LOVE OXO brand, and LOVE this.”
