Best Avocado Slicers of 2019 Review

I’m sure we can all agree that it is extremely hard to slice an avocado, remove its pit and make it look tasty afterward.

Did you know that you could be done with this task in a couple seconds and make the fruit (avocado is a fruit!) look like if you were a professional chef?

In this post, I will show you the best avocado slicers on the market along with some interesting nutritional facts!

An avocado slicer is especially useful for the people that eat this fruit very often as it provides a simple solution to cutting it open, removing the pit and taking out the meat. It’s true that normal knives are effective too, however, as we avocado-lover know, this is an especially slippery fruit. If not handled correctly, deep cuts into the finger can occur. These can be avoided by simply using an avocado slicer for this task. This will also result in a much neater presentation of the fruit. Since when a knife is used, we usually apply a lot of pressure which ends up squeezing the fruit too hard and making it look a bit uninviting.

How to choose a good avocado slicer?

In purchasing the best avocado slicer, you will have to make sure that it fulfills at least 3 of the following 5 criteria:

  • Easy to clean
  • Completely dishwasher safe
  • Should be very easy to use
  • Have a non-slip grip
  • Have a pit remover

The most important factor out of these five is definitely that it has to be easy to clean. Because if not, rests of avocado will remain between the blades and can attract bacteria that can be very harmful to you. So remember, if you want to have a good avocado slicer in your kitchen it either has to be 100% dishwasher safe or easy to wash by hand.
