SlimCado tips and ideas
Is it ripe?
SlimCados stay green as they ripen.* Gently squeezing will tell you if it’s ripe and about when it will be ready to eat.
- Avocado’s still hard? 3 to 4 days on your kitchen counter and it should be ready for slicing. Another day or two, you can mash for guac.
- When it gives to a gentle squeeze, it’s ready to slice.
- When it really gives, it’s ready for guac.
Don’t refrigerate before it’s ripe.

Opening a SlimCado
Open the SlimCado so you’ll have nicely sliced halves. Of course, important for slicing and chopping avocado. But do it nicely and you’ll have an avocado “dish” to hold your guacamole or a dish to hold a creamy salad that can be enjoyed with a spoonful of SlimCado with every bite.
The one feature that really matters...
And you thought it would be size. But size plays into this feature, this is a huge avocado. You might not eat all of it RIGHT after you slice it open. Yes squirt lime, yes wrap it tight in film. But except for some edges browning, this avocado’s color hangs around longer. A slice on breakfast’s plate, some chunks on the midday’s salad, some mashing and you got guac for the evenings movie binge.
For all avocados, delay browning by slicing it open with a ceramic knife.
