Avocado Tool

$14.99

The stainless steel Avocado Tool divides, de-seeds, and scoops out avocados safely, cleanly, and efficiently. Shaped roughly like a triangle, this tool is about 4 inches long and 3 inches wide at the base of the “triangle” and about one inch wide at its narrowest point. It has a subtle curve on one side. The point of the “triangle” is a series of jagged metal “teeth”.

 

The straight thin side of the tool is sharp enough to pierce the outer peel and cut an avocado in half easily, but it is not so sharp as to cut your skin. The jagged teeth at the point of the tool can be inserted easily under the seed of the avocado to remove it, but the teeth are not sharp enough to cut skin. Because this tool has no stick handle, your hands are always near where the action is so you have more control.

How to Use:

Step 1: Hold the Avocado Tool firmly in one hand with the other hand holding the avocado. Push the flat thin side of the tool into the peel of the avocado until you feel the tool hit the solid seed in the center. A firm but gentle pressure is all that is needed to start splitting the avocado. With the tool touching the seed in the center, gently rotate the avocado keeping the tool slicing the avocado as you turn it until you have rotated it all the way around. Use the tool, still inside the split avocado, to separate the halves apart. The seed will remain in one side only.

Step 2:  Use the jagged teeth found on one corner of the tool to gently dig into the flesh of the avocado just under the seed and use a rocking motion to loosen and lift the seed and dispose of it.

Step 3:  Locate the curved side of the tool. Use the roundness of that side to gently insert the tool between the skin and the flesh of the avocado to completely scoop out the contents of the avocado safely and easily leaving the skin intact and ready to dispose of. This is generally accomplished with a single scoop.
