Fruity Tools

Two foods that I can never get enough of are fruits and veggies. Sweet and juicy, and without all the guilt that comes along with eating pizza and ice cream. But in our busy lives it’s often hard to squeeze in an apple a day when our stomachs are screaming for something more hearty, like a sub or sandwich.

Thankfully, these gadgets from Williams Sonoma will help you get your daily fix of nutrition without any hassle.

First, the OXO 3-in-1 avocado slicer is the perfect pitter and pre-per for your avocado halves. The sharp slicer cuts through the avocados skin. Next, use the pitter to easily remove that stubborn pit. And the last step dices the soft, green fruit into perfect cubes.

Use avocado chunks to top salads or spice up salsas. Or just top your avocado with some lime or lemon juice, a little salt and pepper, and enjoy it as a healthy, wholesome snack of its own. There are endless avocado options waiting for you with the OXO 3-in-1 avocado slicer. It’s available for $9.95.

The next fancy fruit gadget is the OXO Mango Pitter. I love mangos, but I’m often hesitant to buy them because after all the skinning and pitting the amount of fruit left is often too miniscule. But with this convenient mango pitter, from Williams Somoma, you can cleanly remove the over-sized, awkwardly shaped pit so that you’re left with only the fruity flesh of the mango.

You now have two perfect mango halves, ready to be scooped from the skin and added to a fruit salad, stirred into creamy yogurt, or sliced and diced amongst onions, tomatoes and pineapple chunks for a sweet spin on salsa. The OXO Mango Pitter is available for $13.95.

Last on this fruit-tastic gadget list is the OXO Cherry & Olive Pitter. Cherries are one of my all time favorite fruits. As a kid I used to eat maraschino cherries by the jar-load. These days I tend to ditch the sugar and just go for the au-natural cherry. But those pesky little pits make more of a mess than I bargain for.

Now, whether it be cherries or olives, you can remove the pits before you enjoy. This can be a huge help when it comes to using either of these fruits in a recipe. Stuffed olives will become a breeze! And now you can pit your cherries and olives before packing them as a snack to avoid having to spit the pits!
