Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer
After I had a pretty serious accident cutting up an avocado, I am sold on this inexpensive little Avocado Slicer!
If you happen to be following me on Instagram you might remember that a few months ago I had a pretty scary accident where I was cutting up an avocado and when I stabbed the pit (like I had done hundreds of times before) and the knife went into a natural split in the seed and right into my hand, clear to the bone! It bled like crazy and I ended up with a visit to the emergency room.
That was a wake-up call for me about cutting avocados and several people recommended this OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer (affiliate link). I like kitchen gadgets, but I probably never would have considered buying an avocado slicer like this if I hadn’t gotten injured. But so many people recommended this exact same one that I bought it a few days later on Amazon.com.
And wow, do I ever love it. It’s really the plastic tool that cuts through the skin and the little teeth that grab the seed (covered by the avocado pit in this photo) that I like most, but the slicing part is pretty cool too. I have used it multiple times since my avocado accident, and I’m loving it a bit more every time I use it. And since I’m loving this Avocado Slicer so much I decided to make it one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, where I spotlight foods and kitchen stuff I love!

Immediately ordered! I'm another one who has come close to cutting myself. After reading your story, I don't need any other close-calls when cutting avocados. Thanks for the info!
Hope you like it Sarah!
Thanks, Kalyn! I just ordered mine. I have not cut myself, but have come close when jabbing the pit to remove it. No more worries with this great tool.
Hope you like it as much as I do!
Where can you buy this little gadget ?
There is a link in the post to order on Amazon.com and I think most stores have it too.
I have one of these. I bought it on sale at the grocery store. I think it's a wonderful item.
Fun to find it on sale! Glad you agree that it's a useful tool!
I'm so glad it's working for you. I scoffed at it myself but now it really is my favorite gadget.
Denise, seriously just a perfect little tool! Thanks again for the recommendation.
