Review: Joseph Joseph CounterStore kitchen worktop organiser PLUS giveaway.
Could the Joseph Joseph CounterStore kitchen worktop organiser be the answer to my kitchen organising prayers? Not only does it look great, it also makes the most of worktop space too, storing knives, gadgets and utensils in one place. There’s even a chopping board that stores neatly at the back.
Here’s my verdict on Joseph Joseph’s space-saving organiser and, even better, courtesy of the award-winning retailer, Harts of Stur, you can win one too!
Joseph Joseph products AND organising: Whoop!
It’s no secret: I am a teensy bit addicted to organising. A quick browse of my blog and you’ll spot blog posts confirming my love of lists, storage boxes, notebooks and planners. You’ll also notice I’m a big Joseph Joseph fan. So, when Harts of Stur, one of the UK’s largest in-store and online retailers of cookware, kitchenware and electricals, asked me to review the Joseph Joseph CounterStore kitchen worktop organiser, I jumped at the chance.
Joseph Joseph CounterStore kitchen worktop organiser: First impressions.
I love the unfussy minimalist appearance and sleek lines of the Joseph Joseph CounterStore. It’s available in white and silver options, easily complimenting most kitchen colour schemes. What’s even more appealing about the CounterStore is its innovative design. Instead of cluttering my worktop with a knife block, utensil holder and chopping boards, all three functions are incorporated into one neat, space-saving 3-in-1 design.
Using the Joseph Joseph CounterStore kitchen worktop organiser.
The CounterStore kitchen worktop organiser comprises a knife block with non-scratch slots, a large utensil store, a small gadget store and a non-slip chopping board which stores at the back of the organiser when it’s not in use. Despite combining all these elements, functionality isn’t compromised, easily storing all the knives and utensils from my individual organisers comfortably. What’s more, the CounterStore’s separate storage compartments for small and large utensils mean it’s even more practical and versatile than many traditional utensil organisers.
The inclusion of the stowaway non-slip chopping board into the design is a stroke of genius. It’s such a neat and clever solution. Mind you, I think it’s too nice to use as a chopping board, so I’ve told the kids I want to use it as a cheese board or serving platter instead.
Joseph Joseph CounterStore kitchen worktop organiser: The verdict.
I love the Joseph Joseph CounterStore kitchen worktop organiser. Initially, I was concerned it wouldn’t be spacious and versatile enough to completely replace my traditional knife block and utensil organiser, but I was wrong! It really is a neat freak’s dream, freeing up space in my kitchen, whilst successfully performing the job of knife block, utensil store and chopping board in one innovative, multipurpose design.
The CounterStore has an RRP of £4O, although you can buy the white and silver versions from Harts of Stur for only £36 (with free delivery on orders over £50).
