Amazon Find of the Day: Evriholder Avo Saver (2 Pack)

Don’t you hate when your leftover avocado quickly turns brown? Well, worry not! This adorable gadget is pretty genius in its design. Just plop your avocado half onto the holder -- the pit fits perfectly -- and secure it with the strap. This reduces air exposure and slows down the oxidation process, which is what turns avocados brown and mushy. Bonus: It’s dishwasher safe, Prime eligible on Amazon, and has nearly 800 reviews with an average of 4 stars.
