Joseph Joseph kitchen gadgets from Find Me a Gift

Joseph Joseph Nest Utensils set
I’ve been doing a lot of de-cluttering recently. This has made me a lot more critical about the things I buy too. I'm trying to bear this William Morris quote in mind:
Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. 
So when I started looking on the Find Me a Gift website I was immediately drawn to the lovely Joseph Joseph kitchen gadgets, which are both beautiful and useful.
The first thing that caught my eye was the Nest Utensils set (shown above). We have had this a few weeks now and it is used daily, with the green spatula being the most frequently-used item. The colours are nice and bright and the utensils are easy to use and to clean. Plus the amount of kitchen worktop space taken up by the set is tiny, which is particularly appreciated in our compact kitchen.
The other item I have been impressed with is the Rocker Garlic Press (shown below). Most garlic presses I have tried have been infuriately fiddly to use and to clean and I was starting to wonder whether I would ever find one that would justify the space it took up. Well now I have found a wonderful garlic press that does the job perfectly and looks elegant to boot.

So why buy these items from Find Me a Gift rather than from a department store or kitchenware shop? I found the Find Me a Gift website easy to browse, and liked the fact that there were videos of the products in use. There are also customer reviews to help you choose the right gift. And there is a loyalty points scheme which means that you can get discounts off future purchases.
I was so impressed with both of these Joseph Joseph items that I have bought a couple more to give away as presents.

Disclosure: I received a Scribe Portable Laptop Stand worth £34.99 from Find Me a Gift and had originally planned to write a review of that. But I was actually more impressed with these Joseph Joseph items that I bought myself. All reviews are completely honest.


  1. I love Joseph Joseph, I *may* have a few of their things in the kitchen, my favourite being the index chopping boards. I hadn't seen these though so thanks for that.

    1. Well after using the Nest utensils set and the Rocker garlic crusher I may well end up buying further Joseph Joseph items. I'm seriously tempted by this baking set especially as it is currently on special offer ;-)
