"Makes taking the stone out of avocados an absolute joy"
17 July 2015
This tool cuts avocados in half, but you can use a knife for that. It slices and scoops avocado flesh all at once, but you can use a spoon for that. No: the pièce de résistance of this tool is its amazing ability to prise out the stone. You'll have to forgive me for this confession, but I used to sink my teeth into avocado stones to yank them out; not sanitary, not ladylike, and probably not a practice routinely recommended by chefs. Thankfully, I shall never need to reprise this act of culinary savagery, as I now have this ingenious tool. Sink and twist, and voilà - au revoir, unwanted stone!
