Question Ever heard of a Guacamole Masher?

...just when I thought I knew all there was to know about avocados! I saw this on the "avocado of the month" website. (yes, there really is one)
Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone had ever used one before and their thoughts on it. It says the underside has little serrated teeth.

I've never heard of that. If I'm making a large quantity I use a potato masher. I like lumps left in the avocadoes. If I'm making just a small amount, I just use a fork. I have more kitchen stuff than I can keep up with now.

Well now, that beats everything!!! I'd say as long as your avocados were pretty soft it would be ok - but around here you usually have to take some a bit firm along with some soft ones if you can find them.

It does look like it would leave the guacamole nice and chunky!!

Avocado of the month club We can count on you for avocado stuff!!

BTW - I read about the trees you weren't sure about - I am SOOOOOOOOOO jealous!!!

Honestly...people who waste their money on these sorts of things should be shot!

It does look cool. I tend not to use half the gadgets I get so it wouldn't help me.

My aunty has an avocado slicer that scoops out the flesh and thinly slices it at the same time.

I think it's cool too Jkath!
It would probably work very well on ripe avocados. Probably not so well with ones that aren't. If gadgets don't cost much, I tend to by them, even if they are stupid to other people. If they work, wonderful, if not, then I didn't pay too much anyway.

One thing I've been looking for is a lemon reamer. I suppose I will have to go to a real kitchen store. I got one of those things that works like a garlic press (sorta) for lemons and limes, but it takes a really firm grip and with my arthritis acting up I can't always press that hard. I saw someone use a fork the other day to twist inside the lemon and will try that and see how it works for me. How do you juice a lemon if you are only using one or two?
