Slicing An Avocado Just Got So Much Easier With This Genius TikTok Hack

·1-min read

Chances are, you're probably reading this because you're a die-hard avocado fan (don't worry, we're also keen). And you probably want us to get straight to the point, right?

Well, here you go.

We saw this hack on @platbasednews' TikTok and it's so simple. For the ultimate way to cut an avocado (injury-free and not covered in avo mush) you just need two things: a super-sharp knife and a chopping board. Plus, the avocado obvs...

They simply begin by, slicing their avocado lengthways down the middle, until the blade of their knife hits the pit. Holding the knife steady and turning the avocado, keeping the blade in contact with the pit the entire time.

Once their knife reaches all the way around the avocado, they remove their knife and twist apart the halves using their hands. Next up, and after they've pulled apart their avocado halves, they grab the side with the pip and very carefully give it a good whack with the base of their knife (this will help loosen it). Once their knife is wedged nicely into the pit, they twist to remove and discard.

Now that the hard part's over, simply place your avocado face down on the chopping board and slice as normal, making sure to use a super-sharp knife.

Then, all that's left is for you to PEEL the avocado skin from the edges (it's so satisfying), to leave you with perfectly-sized, mess-free slices of avocado.

How have we never thought of this before?
