I see these avocado slicers around every once in a while and they never fail to annoy me. All I can think is Seriously? A slicer specifically for avocados? You can't use a PARING KNIFE to do the job?
This particular model, available at Amazon.com, is $9.75. Not a big investment. But why on earth would anyone need it? The description says it's "great for creating beautiful slices that present perfectly in any dish." Are the slices really that much better looking? Why are people so afraid of the tiny variations in hand-cut slices?
I blame Martha Stewart. She ruins everything.
