Looking for the best avocado slicer to create perfect slices for your next culinary adventure? This stainless steel avocado slicer by Norpro is a perfect choice!

Performance

This is the best avocado tool to create perfect slices for your next meal. This tool doesn’t have a knife to split open the fruit so you will first need to cut the avocado in half. Remove the pit, then you can use the slicer! The slicer will separate the “meat” from the skin as it cuts the avocado into 12 pieces. Try the OXO Good Grips 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer if you need a tool that can split the skin, remove the pit, and evenly slice the fruit.

Design

Norpro’s avocado slicer is 7 inches of durable stainless steel. This product makes 12 slices (one more than the Amco 2-in-1 Avocado Slicer!), thanks to its ten fanned blades. Unfortunately, since the blades are so close together the manufacturer recommends hand washing the tool, rather than using a dishwasher, but that’s a small price to pay for efficiency. It is important to note that this tool only slices the fruit – it won’t split open the skin and it cant be used to remove the pit from an avocado.

Value

This tool is made of seven inches of high-quality stainless steel. That, combined with the fact that it provides more slices per use than similar products, is the reasoning behind the $12.50 price tag. Still, the price seems high for a product that can only slice avocados. The Joseph GoAvocado 3-in-1 Avocado Slicer is a slightly-cheaper option that has a pitter and a plastic blade in addition to the avocado slicer. Unless you are going for the thinnest slices possible then you should probably pursue other options.

Norpro Stainless Steel Avocado Slicer Wrap Up

The Norpro Avocado Slicer may not be the cheap, multi-use tool that seems to be an extremely popular sight in kitchens everywhere, but it nonetheless is an effective (and high-quality) single-purpose slicer tool capable of tackling all sizes of avocados. You won’t find another tool that creates slices this tiny, so although this tool can’t cut skin or remove pits, it is perfect for the task it was created for.
