Genius Kitchen Tools

February 23, 2012

During a quick perusal in Sur la Table yesterday, I fell in love with an entire end cap by the brand, Joseph Joseph. What immediately struck me were the elevated utensils, a solution to my frustrations of having no place to put a dirty spatula or spoon while cooking (not a fan of those spoon cradles). Not only is this helpful to keep the kitchen clean, it’s way more hygienic. Upon further inspection, the line boasts an array of colorful, bold (and affordable!) kitchen utensils that totally resolve challenges I had with most of my kitchenware. I immediately purchased a lime green multi-purpose spoon/spatula, and am eyeing a lot more. 

Check it out; how fun and useful are these tools?

Folding colanders, compact herb choppers, jar spoons, space savers and more can be found on their web site. There’s more than 50 oh-so useful items to covet. Honestly, you might just die and go to kitchen heaven.

    Great finds - brilliant utensils. I have unique spoon rests (don’t buy the ones that look like spoons - I use candleholders, vintage butterpats, all kinds of things - but these would help!

      Thanks, Jan! If you think they’re great utensils then they’re great utensils! You would know. Appreciate your insight about alternative spoon rests though I’m thinking of picking up a few more of these.

    These are so amazing and like “why didn’t I think of that?” Elevated utencils? Genius! But what about drips? I love the foldable graters - I always hate how much space graters take up! This was a great discovery, thanks for sharing!
