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.
One shopper explained, “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!”
An Amazon customer shared, “I LOVE this avocado slicer!! It does everything-cuts the avocado in half, removes the seed, and slices the avocado in perfect slices! I have used other tools but none compares with this one!! A must have!”
Someone else reviewed, “L-O-V-E this thing! Worth the money just for the pit removal… the other functions are just bonus features.”
A loyal user of the product shared, “I have purchased this avocado tool for myself and several times as gifts for family and friends. This OXO tool is hands down the best and most sturdy one on the market. I don’t know how anyone eats avocado without using this to be honest!”
Another fan of the slicer said, “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.”
