Avocado Slicer

I admit it…I like gadgets.  But I only like gadgets that I’ll actually use.  While shopping for a shower present some time ago at the local kitchen supply store I came across this, a The Chefn Corporation Green Flexible Avocado Slicer.

After reading the package I realized it was an avocado slicer.  I thought it looked fun but figured it was just a fad gadget and wouldn’t really work.

Fast forward about 8 months to last week.  Well last week I was at my local thrift store.  I saw one of these in the kitchen gadget box.  I snapped it up.  It was only 25 cents and for that cost, I could definitely give it a try.

Guess what??  I love it.  It is so easy to use.  Simply cut the avocado in half-remove the see-then scoop it out.

It’s so easy.  My avocado was a little on the soft side.  I’ve tried it since and the slices come out “cleaner”.

Check out how clean the shell is!  It is so slick and easy.  I know I’ll be eating more avocado’s now.  I used to hate dealing with the slippery, slimey thing…now very simple and easy.  The only thing that is not my favorite is cleaning it.  I did resolve that though.  I use a bristled brush to get the soft leftovers out of the slicer.

I showed a couple of the kids when they were home how slick it was…everyone was impressed too.

I know I say this all the time…I love my thrift store!  25 cents was well spent this day…Had I know it worked this good, I would have paid full price at the original store.

    I am chuckling and enjoying this story very much! Reminded me of the time I found a rotary cutter in perfect condition at a thrift shop for $1. It was in with the pizza cutters. You never know what goodies you’ll find in a thrift store, and don’t forget to look in the pizza cutter bins. :) m

    I just read in my inbox about the electrician and the plug ins coming soon to your house. Have you thought of one IN THE FLOOR by where your main sewing tables will be? Wish I had. Then you don’t have to run so many cords and can have buds over to stitch with you without having to walk carefully. Enjoy your blog so much.
