Avocado Slicers, Pitters & Savers - Make a Slippery Job Easier

Updated on July 30, 2013

Pit and slice your avocados easily

Avocados are one of the tastiest foods ever, but pitting and slicing them can be a messy and slippery process. Not anymore with the modern range of avocado slicers and pitters that help you quickly prepare your avocados.

No need to worry about cutting your hand while taking the pit out, or wasting precious avocado flesh while scooping and slicing it for salads. These tools are small, well-priced wonders that will hardly take up any space but will make life so much easier.

On this page I'll walk you through the best rated avocado slicers and pitters, as well as avocado storage containers to keep your cut open avocados fresh and green for longer.

When you're done checking out these avocado tools, you might like to read my other page about avocado seed uses. Here it is so you can open it up in a separate tab to read later:

20 Ways to Use Avocado Seeds
You won't believe the amazing ways that avocado seeds can be used. You can create jewellery, dye fabric and make shampoo using avocado pits, as well as many...

Pitters, Scoopers & Mashers

These clever slicers have several functions in one tool.

Zyliss 4-in-1 Avocado Tool

As attractive as it is functional, the Zyliss avocado tool will cut, pit, slice and even mash your avocado. Great for a quick guacamole or mashed avocado on toast.

I think this tool would be great for kids to use, as the cutting edge isn't sharp enough to hurt them.

OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer

This is by far my favourite out of all the avocado slicers.

The OXO slicer feels great in your hands, and cuts, pits and slices cleanly. I like the fact that the knife part isn't too sharp, so you can't hurt yourself while cutting (unlike with a normal knife, where it's easy to cut your hand while pitting an avocado).

The little hole on the back of the pitting tool makes it really easy and safe to get the pit out again.

This cute avocado tool cuts, pits and scoops avocados in seconds. It's small and easy to hide away in kitchens that don't have much storage space.

- Non- stick blade- Serrated edge for thick avocado skin- Removes flesh cleanly for reduced waste

 

Trudeau Avocado Slicer

Here's a nice compact tool that works just as well as larger ones. The Trudeau avocado tool has 3 functions - it easy cuts open the fruit, flips the pit out and scoops out the flesh.

Its small size and almost flat shape makes it the ideal tool to pack in a lunchbox. Imagine taking this to work and being able to quickly (and cleanly!) prepare a healthy avocado meal.

I Sliced an Avocado

Once you've bought your new avocado slicer, you'll be able to sing this funny song.

It's so very strange, but addictive nonetheless.

Norpro Stainless Steel Avocado Slicer

If you're looking for a simple, quality avocado slicer that won't cut or pit (but makes perfect slices) this is for you.

The Norpro Avocado Slicer is great because it's very well made, looks nice in the kitchen and does exactly what it's supposed to. Sure, it won't win prizes for being the most exciting tool but it will give you nice, even avocado slices without you making a mess everywhere or cutting yourself.

Avocado savers

Keep your cut avocado fresh and green for as long as possible.

Harold Import Company Avo Saver

You've cut open an avocado, but only used one half. Don't let that precious avocado turn brown and dry. This avocado saver will help it last longer and stay green.

I hope you enjoyed these avocado slicers & pit removers - What's your favourite way to eat avocados?

      I have never ever ate an avacado (sorry but that song is making me silly - it is so cute). I am very curious about them and currently I haven't a clue whether you eat them fresh, cook them, eat them plain, or with seasonings? I'm off to look at some of your other avacado lenses.

      Isn't it funny that I never thought of using anything with an avocado, but a knife. Now I see there's a whole passel of things I might try.

      I love avocados and even though I do quite well with just a serrated knife for slicing in half, and then, believe it or not, a serrated grapefruit spoon to scoop out the avocado, I will try some of your suggested utensils. Nice lens!

      @Alessandro Zambon: Happy you enjoyed it. There are similar tools for other fruits (I have one for pineapples and mangoes)...maybe I'll write about them next.
