In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I am reposting an old blog about one of my favorite tools.. the OXO Avocado slicer.
Update: It is available everywhere now! 🙂
Well, here we are on day 2 of my fun finds at the Houseware’s Show. My second fave is an upcoming gadget from OXO. I am a huge fan of OXO to begin with (pronounced OX (as in the animal) – OH). It may seem silly to some to clarify the pronunciation, but many people aren’t so sure, so there you have it. OX-OH. Anyway, every year that I go to the show, I sort of relish going to the booth. Incredibly fun, useful products. This year, my fun find at this booth was the Avocado tool. I absolutely LOVE avocados! I absolutely HATE getting the seed out. I feel like I have mastered slicing it open, the twist and pull and also scooping it out but that seed. That stupid seed. I swear I am going to slice my finger off every time I try to spike the knife into the seed. For those of you unfamiliar with what I am referring to, please see the link below on how to typically cut and core an avocado.
Now, look at the OXO avocado tool. AmaZing. I’m sold. I am going to be first in line when this tool becomes available! It will retail for @$10 and will be available in white and green. I’ll keep you posted on my Facebook page when I find out exactly when it will hit retailers
Happy guacamole everyone? I seem to be running out of my happyisms.
See you tomorrow. Same time. Same place.
