I confess that am a huge fan of Joseph Joseph products. Their utensils and tableware have a certain unique style and I love their trademark bold lime-green colour. When I was asked if I would like to review the new Extend dish rack for them I jumped at the chance. Not just because I love their products, but also because our drainage board tends to look like this most of the time…
We don’t currently have a dishwasher and there is simply never enough space in one rack to let everything drain so we have resorted to adding an absorbable mat alongside, and I worry this is not doing the worktops any good, being almost permanently damp.
The Extend dish rack has tackled this problem perfectly and we were completely delighted when this arrived.
The dish rack extends to hold more items when needed, but can be closed back up when finished saving worktop space. Sloping base channels drain any water towards an integrated plug which can be set to trap water to drain later, or left open, as we do, to drain water instantly away into the sink.
It has sturdy non-slip feet and raised ribs which prevents water from becoming trapped under glasses or bowls. It really is a very clever design and, of course, it has a certain style.
We are really pleased with it and are delighted to get rid of the damp, soggy mat we were using previously.
My only criticism is the price. I love the product. It is a great design, it is practical and stylish but would I spend £50 on it, no. I honestly wouldn’t spend £50 on ANY dish rack. I think the price point here is wrong but I can’t deny that it is a quality product.
Disclosure: I was sent the Extend dish rack featured free of charge for the purpose of this review, however all opinions are my own and 100% honest.
