Avocado Slicer


In all my years of closely reading catalogs of kitchen equipment this is the first time I've ever encountered a dedicated avocado slicer.

"Simply place this slicer at one end of a halved, pitted avocado and drag the tool along the interior of the shell."

Santoprene handle so you can get a grip.

Dishwasher safe; 6.5" long.

$15 here.

Wire under tension seems to come alive

Could that be the Sundial Bridge across the Sacramento River in Redding CA? You can hit the cables and feel the difference in the wave frequencies. This is what geeks do with their summer vacations. Oh, by the way, the slicer looks nifty.
