“Avocado hand,” it’s a thing. A phrase coined in the medical industry for the rising number of avocado related hand injuries that come into emergency rooms across the globe. This trusty tool makes your morning avocado toast a snap and avoids all those stitches! It has three functions, though all of them are for avocados: plastic blade to cut open the fruit, a special pitter to remove the seed, and then a scoop slicer that gives you perfect slices every time.

    This is one of those things you can skip. I like OXO tools. They are well made and do what they are designed for very well.

    But this looks like one of those things that is not really worth the real estate it consumes in the kitchen. You already have probably a dozen TABLE KNIVES and each one will cut, pit and slice just fine.

    Yes, a table knife will pit just fine. I used to think that I had to use a nice, sharp chef's knife to whack into the pit, twist it out and then somehow get it off the blade safely. Then one day while screening compost I realized avocado pits are relatively soft; they actually compost more rapidly than avocado skins.

    So I switched to using the same table knife to pit that I used to halve the avocado and will next use to slice and dice the meat. Sometimes it takes a second whack to sink the blade far enough to make the pit pop out when you twist. That is not as much of a problem as worrying about sharps safety or ruining your $60 chef's knife.
