Hello. I'm here to talk to you about one of the biggest problems currently facing our generation today.
Keeping guacamole from getting all brown and disgusting within nanoseconds of making it.

Luckily, the Guac-Lock has arrived, and it's here to save us all from those grim days of gross-ass day-old guac.
Sure, there are plenty of hacks that are supposed to help keep guac fresh: Sprinkle with lemon or lime juice! Keep the pit in it! Use plastic wrap around the container!
You may have used any of the above tricks to varying levels of success (and been met with varying levels of icky brown gooeyness), but really, the key is to keep as much air out of your storage container as possible.

Basically, guacamole browns when it oxidizes — aka when it has contact with oxygen. The Guac-Lock, available on Amazon for $16.25, claims it can keep guacamole fresh for days, thanks to its airtight seal.
I was dubious (not to mention curious as to what sort of monster would put off eating any and all available guac in their fridge for days), so I set out on a mission to see how well it really worked.
