  1. I would love to try out the avocado pro. I love avocado but not guacamole. I would eat more avocado in my salads — or thinly sliced on bread — if it were more convenient to pit and cut the fruit. This tool might work well.
  2. I think the Produce Pro looks really cool! Love it when products multi-task like me!! :D @VectoringMomma
