Kuhn Rikon Adds Avocado Tool, Bench Scraper

Kuhn Rikon has added the 5-in-1 Avocado Tool and a food Bench Scraper to its food prep lineup.

The 5-in-1 Avocado Tool is a compact tool designed to cut, slice, pit, mash and scoop out an avocado. It features a serrated edge that cuts through tough avocado skin. It has a pit remover that is built into the handle to extract the avocado’s pit with a quick twist. The curved tip on the serrated edge end removes avocado fruit from the skin, while also enabling the user to mash it into guacamole. The opposing end of the tool is designed to slice and scoop avocado strips, the scoop paddle removes the full fruit from the skin, and the slicer paddle creates even strips.

The Bench Scraper is designed to dice or slice foods from the cutting board to the stovetop. It is made from  silicone with a flexible steel core and includes a curved top that fits in the palm of a hand. The bench scraper also incorporates a wide, sturdy surface. After dicing or chopping fresh ingredients, the user can scoop them onto the scraper to transport them to a salad bowl or cooking pan. The Bench Scraper is heat-resistant up to 428 degrees Farenheit and is safe for use with nonstick cookware and bakeware.
