Avocado lovers know there’s more than one way to eat the green fruit, but did you know that there are also quite a few ways to cut one open? These avocado tools on Amazon will help you slice and dice avocados better and prevent the leftovers from browning in the fridge.

Of course, you may wonder, how hard is it to slice open an avocado? Well, apparently, it’s kind of hard. Back around 2018, the term “avocado hand” became a way to describe injuries people suffered from cutting avocados open. Not to give you a totally grim image, but most injuries occur when people are holding an avocado in one hand and slicing with a knife in the other. According to The Guardian, “avocado hand” was on the rise in 2020 around the Super Bowl.

Luckily, you can have your guac and eat it too with these safe-to-use avocado tools from Amazon.
