Holy Avocado Seed, Batman.

Holy Avocado Seed, Batman.

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

OXO Avocado Tool

Happy guacamole everyone?  I seem to be running out of my happyisms.

See you tomorrow.  Same time.  Same place.

  2. Honestly, I couldn’t stop watching the demo when I was at the show. There are other avocado tools out there but this one is truly amazing. Do you like guacamole?
