We posted about Joseph Joseph’s Index cutting board back in 2008, and now they have an updated version called Index Plus that also comes with four matching knives, also color coded to match your index card-shaped chopping boards.

Joseph Joseph also has some other clever, dishwasher-safe kitchen items worth noting:

This innovative chopping board uses the latest and smartest technology in polypropylene “living” hinges. Locked in the flat position, Chop2Pot provides a durable, knife-friendly cutting surface. But when the handle is squeezed, the sides of the board fold up, forming a chute, down which diced and chopped food can be neatly guided.  Available colors include: green, red, pink, black and white.

The Elevate range utilizes an innovative weighted handle system to prevent the utensil’s head from touching worktop surfaces, which maximizes hygiene while minimizing mess and eliminating the need for a spoon rest. The tool heads are heat resistant up to 480°F and are ideal for use with non-stick cookware. Each tool has an ergonomic soft grip handle and is dishwasher safe. The Elevate range is comprised of six essential tools: a spoon, a slotted spoon, a flexible turner, a slotted turner, a ladle and a spaghetti server, each in a different vibrant color. Available individually or as a boxed gift set.

The eye catching and witty design of this pestle and mortar, made from non-absorbent vitrified porcelain, provides two individual receptacles for grinding herbs and spices. The main bowl is large enough for crushing and grinding larger quantities or even several ingredients at once. The lid, when inverted, provides a neat, hand-held mortar for grinding smaller amounts. The large green pestle is perfectly weighted and comfortable in the hand, even during prolonged use.

Nest Bowl 8
The Nest range is the ultimate collection of practical, space saving kitchenware, comprising a mixing bowl, strainer, flour sieve, measuring bowl, and 4 measuring spoons, each in a different vibrant color. The unique design of the range allows the individual elements of each set to be stacked together, thereby occupying the absolute minimum amount of space.

Hands On
A perfect paradigm of form following function, this salad bowl has a pair of hand-like salad servers integrated on either side of the bowl. Blending smoothly into the contours of the design, the servers sit securely in place until required. Made from 100% melamine, this product makes a fun and practical solution for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. Available colors include white bowl with green servers, green bowl with light green servers and stone bowl with white servers.

This distinctive salt and pepper mill has a unique twin-chamber design allowing both salt and pepper to be dispensed from the same stylish unit. Its ceramic mechanism is anti-corrosive and guaranteed for up to ten years. Hold the body of the mill in one hand and twist either of the two grinding knobs to release salt or pepper. Suitable for grinding all types of spices, as well as rock salt, it can be easily adjusted to grind from coarse to fine grain. Available in white, green and gray.
