It claims to keep guacamole green and fresh for days. And one user comment says it’s true: “I tried it and it made the guac last longer for sure!” We know what you’re thinking; you’ve seen these contraptions before. But have you ever seen one priced at $6.99? Our guess is no, considering most on Amazon are in the $12 to $15 range. Did we mention it’s also dishwasher safe?
Other Ways to Keep Guacamole Fresh
Don’t have an Aldi near you (or your local location is sold out)? No worries. There are plenty of ways to stretch the green life of your avocados and guac. Here are a few tips:
- Spraying the top of what’s left of your guac with nonstick cooking spray keeps it green for about 24 hours. Try something neutral like vegetable oil, olive oil or coconut oil spray.
- Brush avocado or guac in olive oil and store it in the fridge to keep it green longer. Keep it in an airtight container.
- You can also brush either with lemon juice instead. Store in the fridge wrapped in plastic.
- Store partially-used avocados with some chopped red onion. The sulfur oxidizes on the surface and keeps them from turning brown.
