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.
