There's no worse feeling than seeing that top layer of guacamole turn a shade of green or brown you don't want to touch, let alone eat. I don't know about you, but I've had plenty of conversations with my buddies talking about this dreaded browning. This is of course while we drink Ethiopian coffee and talk about the next pop-up serving halloumi pizza.
Back to guacamole and by extension, avocados. Just think about this dreaded browning, and contemplate how simpler life would be if guacamole would stay fresh for more than a few minutes. Maybe get carried away, and even imagine the green dip lasting the entire length of a game on Super Bowl Sunday.
Remember that time you thought it would be a super cool idea to bring in your "healthy" lunch with salad and avocado to work, only to get to lunchtime and you discover your masterpiece has turned to a disaster. How do we stop this from happening?
Wonder no longer, as there is some pretty big news in the essential avocado world. A new product is out, and it's here to blow your minds: the Guac-Lock. After a few months on the market, its practicality and results speaks for themselves. If you're really into your avocado, this may honestly change your life.
As you may or may not know, guacamole's biggest enemy is air; more specifically, the oxidization process that happens when your guac comes into contact with it. So, as it sits in your fridge (even with plastic wrap over it) or out on the table while everyone is hanging out, the air makes guacamole turn brown.
Enter the Guac-Lock. It is designed to push out all the air out of the container, and as a result, keep all the freshness in. No brown, no problem. With this, you can now make guacamole in advance without leaving the huge, bulky pit in the bowl (which actually doesn't work, by the way).
With this delightful device, you also won't feel the need to scoff down whatever leftovers there are in fear of precious guac going to waste. The Guac-Lock keeps things fresh for days. I'm not just talking one day here, people; I mean multiple days of guacamole. This could be the greatest invention of the 21st century!
If that wasn't enough, you get a super sleek chip plate to go with it, so you can serve your guac from today, yesterday, last week or even last month with a variety of crunchy goodies in style. Put other dips in the chip plate as and when you please.
Think of how fresh lunchtimes will be now. No longer will you have to wait in an aggravatingly long line to pay $12 dollars for a sad, pathetic splat of avocado dip in a container, to only find it's browned a bit when you make it back to the office.
You can find the Guac-Lock on Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond and on the Casabella website, all for under $20. It will save you time, money and let you eat fresh guac for days. I assure you, it's worth every penny.
