Initially I thought this kitchen gadget was a little gimmicky but it worked like a charm! No more mashed avocados - unless I'm making guacamole, of course! The scoop end cleaned the fruit out whole and the slicer end produced clean, even slices. Great for presentation! I had a little trouble using the pit extractor but my hands are not strong and I think it takes a really tight grip. Overall, it is now one of my favorite kitchen gadgets.
