Info: Specialty Tool for Peeling, Coring & Sectioning
If you eat or serve a lot of avocados - and we hope you do, since they're quite good for us - then you know it can be tricky to liberate and serve up the flesh of that fruit without making a bit of a mess of it, unless you use a variety of tools. You have to cut through the skin; cut it in half without scoring the bitter pit; remove the pit; scoop the flesh away from the skin; and possibly slice it, while trying to do it as cleanly as possible the first time so you don't get any on your fingers or have to resort to scraping some remnants off the pit or the skin. This dishwasher safe Avocado Tool by the Progressive company has a clever, patented design to safely do all that in very little time.
Think of this as an Avocado Sword: its stainless steel serrated blade can slice the skin and halve the avocado, and has a rounded tip so you can also slice the halves into sections while it is still in the skin without penetrating the skin; the 'pommel' or base of the sword/tool includes two sets of teeth to dig into the pit to pull it out; and the removable silicone "scabbard" snaps into place to protect the blade (and your household) when it's not in use, and has a flat spoon head for scooping the avocado away from and out of the skin, when it is.
Materials: PP (polypropene), Nylon, Stainless Steel and Silicone.
