Welcome to our 12 days of Christmas kitchen gadgets blog! Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from November 21st until December 16th, we will be featuring a company with some clever and handy kitchen gadgets.
On the 3rd day of Christmas, we bring to thee
Specializing in contemporary kitchenware, Joseph Joseph is now internationally recognized for producing some of the most stylish and technically innovative products available, and has become one of the fastest growing companies in the worldwide housewares market. Their unique ability to match form and function has earned them global recognition for their multi-award-winning designs.
Twin brothers Richard and Antony Joseph founded Joseph Joseph in 2003, combining their respective experience in product design and business – Antony studied design at Central St Martins whilst Richard studied business at Cambridge University.
The first product I would like to bring to your attention from Joseph Joseph is their Index™ Cutting Board sets. There are three sets available: Index™ Advance, Steel and Plus.
Index™ Advance is the next generation of Joseph Joseph’s multi-award-winning chopping board categorization system, designed to reduce the likelihood of cross-contamination of different food types. Its four colour-coded chopping boards now boast convenient, non-slip feet on both sides and index-style tabs with contrasting, soft-grip illustrations, ensuring the boards are even easier to select for each food type. In addition, the surface of the Index™ Advance storage case now sports a subtle, embossed grid texture and a darker silver hue, making the whole unit even more stylish and desirable.
The Index™ Steel chopping board set contains four larger chopping boards, each measuring 33.5 x 23.5 cm. Each board is colour-coded and has its own index-style illustrated tab just like the Advance set, however, the tabs have a brushed metal finish and the case boasts a stylish stainless steel finish.
The Index Plus™ is an enhanced version of their multi-award-winning chopping board categorisation system. It differs from the above two in the fact that it has four matching knives paired with the categorized cutting boards.
With the Index™ Chopping Board sets, preparing vegetables, fish, raw meat and cooked food, is now even safer. The boards are dishwasher safe and the cases are easily wiped clean down with a damp cloth.
The second product I would like to show you from Joesph Joseph is their Folding Colander. Many of us have this problem in the kitchen. . . where do you keep that darn colander? For the most part it gets put in with pots and pans or mixing bowls, but with this handy new colander from Joseph Joseph, you can pretty well store it anywhere you like! This award-winning design goes from a flat sheet to a sturdy colander in one easy movement. Simply hold the two handles, push toward each other and the flat sheet will automatically fold, creating a base and four sides. Clips at either end then engage and lock, forming the colander. To flatten, simply pop out the four locking clips and open out.
Made from dishwasher safe polypropylene, the design uses twelve ‘living’ hinges to achieve its transformation.
The last item I would like to show you from Joseph Joseph is their Hands On™ Salad Bowl. The striking design of this salad bowl is the result of its unique feature – a pair of hand-like salad servers integrated on either side of the bowl.
Blending smoothly into the contours of the design, the servers sit securely in place until required. Made from 100% melamine, this product makes a fun and practical solution for both indoor and outdoor entertaining, and is dishwasher safe.
