This time of year it’s easy to find juicy and colorful fresh fruit to work into dinner or put out while you’re entertaining. Markets around the city are showcasing vibrant displays of mangos, papayas, and avocados, and after a long winter, they’re a very welcome sight. But while finding the best fruits this time of year isn’t a challenge, getting them from the farm to the table might be. Ever try to keep an avocado looking presentable while separating it from the peel? Good luck.
That’s why we’re loving this Tropical Fruit Scoop & Slice tool. This one little gadget takes care of all of the slicing and dicing in just a few seconds, and it thankfully doesn’t come with a 15-page instruction manual. Once you’ve got your fruit cut in half, slide the blades out of the tool, score the tissue horizontally and vertically, and then use the scoop to slide out the pieces. It works great on kiwis, mangoes, and even watermelon. And you can even toss it in the dishwasher when you’re done. Too simple to be true? Never.
