As always, Joseph and Joseph go that little bit extra on the design of everyday products by looking at how they could be improved upon and this Elevate™ 5-piece Silicone Utensil Set is no different.
Stylish and ultra compact
The Elevate™ 5-piece Silicone Utensil Set is a stylish and compact set that sits neatly on any kitchen worktop. The based is as small as it can be to maximise space and it has a non-slip bottom to prevent it sliding around on the counter. The tools are lightweight yet strong, and the handles are designed in on-trend colours.
Integrated tool rest and angled head
What makes these utensils special, is the fact that they have an integrated tool rest and angled head to stop them touching the worktop. This prevents cross contamination and mess from occurring. However, depending on what you are using the utensils for, mess does defiantly occur from drips, so make sure you have a plate or piece of kitchen roll underneath.
Heat resistant head and handle
The 5 tools are heat resistant with the flexible silicone heads resistant up to 270°C (520°F) and the nylon handles heat-resistant up to 200°C (392°F). Whist this seems a lot, you definitely don’t want to be leaving them inside the saucepan or, like us, resting on the top of the pan, as they will likely melt!
Joseph and Joseph give a 2 year warranty
Joseph and Joseph give a 2 year warranty on most of their products including the Elevate™ 5-piece Silicone Utensil Set which reassures consumers of the trust they have in their product’s quality.
Things we found that weren’t so good.
One the whole, this utensil set is great. However we have a small niggle though. Because of the integrated tool rest you don’t necessarily think about drips, as you would with a regular kitchen utensil. Take the humble wooden spoon. You know it’s going to create a big mess if you put it on the worktop, and so, you find an alternative, like a spoon rest. With the Elevate™ 5-piece Silicone Utensil Set though, it’s not so clear cut. We kept placing them on the worktop and coming back to a big mess from drips! I’m sure you get used to it and work something out like having a plate underneath so we’d defiantly still buy them.
Included in the set is: 1 x slotted spoon, 1 x solid spoon, 1 x slotted spatula, 1 x solid spatula, 1 x paddle
All are dishwasher and microwave safe.
Heads made of heat resistant silicone.
2 year guarantee.
You’ll love them so they won’t end up in landfill a month after you buy them.
However, it’s disappointing that only the glass chopping board is still made in the UK. Most of Joseph and Joseph products are made in China where working conditions are not always great!
Eco factor 5/10
Overall Kitchen Gadget Geeks verdict: 7.5/10 – would buy.
What we love: space saving, items all in one place, quality and design
What we’d change: it would be great if they came with a drip tray.
