This all-in-one tool for avocados cuts, pits and scoops. The high-carbon stainless-steel serrated knife cuts through tough avocado skin. Use the tool to hit into the pit and twist to remove. The curved knife tip effortlessly removes the flesh. 4¾" blade.
I am an avocado lover as is the rest of my family, so I'm always opening, slicing, and scooping avocado for salads, snacks, sandwiches and to top bagels. I loved the concept of this knife and was pleased when I saw the affordable price. I bought it as my own stocking stuffer! But my first use was a disappointment. The knife doesn't cut the fruit with a clean smooth margin. The two halves of the fruit are rough almost as though they were broken apart. The prongs for pit removal don't work well - it takes 2 to 3 goes to get them to stick well enough to actually remove the pit. I prefer to just use the edge of a chef's knife for both cutting the avocado and removal of the pit. The one area where the knife soars is in removal of the fruit slices. The curved tip of the knife slides nicely between the fruit and its skin and the slices pop out beautifully for presentation in a salad or on a sandwich. I will keep the knife just for this purpose, but I won't be using it for cutting or pit-removal. Given the low price, it may still be worth it
I find this knife easy to use and it lives up to my expectations. I agree with the previous reviewer, it does not leave a very clean edge. This is not a problem unless you plan on displaying the slices. If you like to make guacamole then it definately wont be an issue. Just bought my 2nd one for a gift. For $12.00 its worth it, plus its fun to use and you wont cut yourself the way you may with a chef's knife
I really enjoy having this tool around as I make homemade guacamole very frequently. I actually was able to cut very clean edges with this tool(I was also cutting into the avos when they were ripe and ready) and the prings got the pit out very quickly and easily. From here I was able to cleanly scoop into the bowl. I did 6 avos and mashed them with the matching masher and used the citrus juicer for some fresh lemon juice. From there I added the rest of my ingredients and I had fresh guac in 5 minutes time and had zero mess and no avo on my hands which never happens. I've been making a lot more guac because of these tools! Love it!
