“We identify everyday problems and solve them through intelligent design to create distinctive, functional products that are a pleasure to own and use.” – Jospeh and Joseph
Functionality is top priority
Joseph and Joseph are twin brothers born in the UK with a family history of manufacturing. Richard Joseph explains that functionality is their top priority as they want people to use their products every day.
In our opinion they haven’t failed to deliver with their Nest™ 9 Plus Bowl Set. It’s a must for all kitchen owners that value space, organisation and style.
The non-slip bowls make mixing easy
If you’re a keen cook then you’ll know how annoying it is when your bowl slips and slides over the worktop. Or, when you’re mixing a heavy dough and the bowl tips….it’s frustrating. However, with these cleverly designed bowls the silicone base helps it to stay put, leaving you free to whisk away and stir the pot on the hob at the same time (if you are adept at multi tasking that is?)
The smaller mixing bowl has a handy spout for easy pouring and the larger one is more than big enough to hold the mixture of a 6 egg Victoria Sandwich or the dough for your amazing sourdough loaf.
We loved that the sieve is made of stainless steel instead of plastic and the colander is easy to hold due to the durable handles.
For all those who are fanatical about a tidy kitchen you’ll approve of the fact that everything is in one place. No more hunting around for those pesky measuring spoons!
Joseph and Joseph give a 2 year warranty
Joseph and Joseph give a 2 year warranty on most of their products including the Nest™ 9 Plus Bowl Set which reassures consumers of the trust they have in their product’s quality..
Some may think that £50 is a lot for this set and you can definitely buy the items cheaper. However, in our opinion the design, stylish colours, space saving stackability, non-slip bottom and 2 year guarantee make the investment worthwhile.
Things we found that weren’t so good.
We found it annoying when we wanted just one item we had to unstack the set to access it. However, it’s a small sacrifice for the space saving and organisational element. And, if you are an avid microwaver, then this may not be for you either, as the set isn’t microwavable, (although you can bung them in the dishwasher safely).
Included in the set is: 1 x 4.5L mixing bowl, 1 x 3L colander, 1 x 1.65L stainless steel mesh sieve, 1 x 0.5L mixing bowl and 5 measuring cups of differing sizes.
Made of good quality plastic so only recyclable in some areas.
2 year guarantee.
You’ll love them so they won’t end up in landfill a month after you buy them.
It’s disappointing that only the glass chopping board is still made in the UK, with most other products made in China where working conditions are not always great!
Eco factor 5/10
Overall Kitchen Gadget Geeks verdict: 8/10 – would buy.
What we love: space saving, items all in one place, quality and design
What we’d change: a bit of a faff to get to the individual elements, not microwave safe.
