Avocados are just not my particular cup of tea. I am trying so hard to learn to like them, but I am not there yet. That being said, my husband loves them and my toddler loves guacamole! Since we started using eMeals religiously (read my review here), I find myself cutting them up a couple of times a week.
It’s a running joke in my family that I can’t be trusted with a good knife. I am known for accidentally cutting myself (pretty badly a few times), and trying to pit and cut an avocado has landed me in bandaids a few times.
When Pampered Chef (devoted rep over here!) announced this handy little Avocado tool as part of their Spring lineup, I knew it was a need! I’m going to show you how it works, and when I am all done, you can head on over here and grab yourself one…because you’re going to need it, too!
First, you use the knife end to cut through the skin. Press until you feel it hit the pit, and then simply rotate the fruit to slice all the way around!
Once you finish cutting, give the halves a little twist!
The halves easily pull apart from there.
Now, for the part that sold me. Getting the dad gum pit out of the avocado! Prying that stinking thing out has landed me a few hand-stabs over the last couple of months alone. No more with this little guy!
The pitter end has prongs that grab the pit. Lay it down, place the pitter on top and gently “hammer” it onto the pit. Give it a little twist and the pit pops right out with almost no effort on your part!
It really is that easy! Use the knife end to cut the avocado if you desire,, while still in the skin.
Gently separate from the skin and remove!
