I looked at a number of avocado tools before purchasing this one. The 1-2-3 instructions were easy to understand and just as easy to perform. I could not believe I had an avocado peeled, sliced, and on the plate in less than 15 seconds. It was so much fun, I sliced several avocados and each one came out as beautifully as the first. Granted, the avocado has to be the right degree of ripeness -- too ripe and it's squishy, too hard and the blades are harder to push through -- but for serving just-right avocados or making guac, this is an awesome tool
I was skeptical about buying a tool that is only for avocado, but I am so glad I did! The blade cuts the avocado in half easily and quickly. The pit remover is my favorite feature. I was never very successful using a knife, and I was always worried about breaking my knife blade when twisting. The pits always come out really easily when I am using this tool. I don't use the slicing part very often, but it works okay. Overall it is great tool that is a good size and feels very ergonomic
The blade for cutting open an avocado works great.
The slicer at the other end works well on a firm avocado. (not so well on a soft avocado)
However, the middle part that is supposed to remove the pit hasn't worked, at all, for me. It's really too small for an average size pit. This defect doesn't bother me, though, as the pit is easy to remove with your fingers, once the avocado is cut open.
Four stars out of five, only because the middle part for removing the pit is not useful.
