If the avocados weren’t in the picture, would you know the name of this utensil? If I didn’t already have one, I wouldn’t know. My daughter and son-in-law gave this to me last year, and it has been so handy. My first attempts to use it ended up with smashed looking avocado slices, but then I finally figured out the correct way to use it. It’s so quick and easy to make nice looking avocado slices now.
