Joseph Joseph Elevate Steel 100 Review
My first Joseph Joseph product was the Nest Mixing Bowls, a set of bowls of various sizes that conveniently nest within each other. The bright, attention-getting colors just made me happy and since then, I’ve always been a fan of Joseph Joseph’s smartly designed products for the kitchen.
We’re reviewing the Joseph Joseph Elevate Steel 100 set of utensils, which includes a stand that holds: Solid Spoon, Spaghetti Server, Slotted Turner, Slotted Spoon, Skimmer and Ladle. Retail $100.
This set is made of 18/8 stainless-steel, which is 18% chromium and 8% nickel. The handle is heat resistant silicone, and the end cap is polished stainless steel.
Since my cooking utensils are my most-handled product in the kitchen, I need sturdy, high-quality utensils that won’t warp, melt, stain — and are dishwasher safe. I’m happy to report that this set meets all of those requirements.
The utensils are designed with weighted handles, so that they can sit on the counter without the head touching. This keeps your counter clean, as well as your tool from touching a dirty surface.
Here’s what I love about the Joseph Joseph Elevate Steel 100 set:
- Amazing quality – you won’t find a better made tool set. This set will last for many years.
- Weighted handles, elevates tool off the counter to keep everything clean.
- Carousel makes for convenient storage, and looks pretty, too.
- My favorite tool is the spoon and slotted spoon – great size, shape for the way I cook.
- I don’t mind the weight (the tools are really heavy!), but some people might take issue with how heavy they are.
Here are my reservations about the set:
- I normally use a plate to set my utensils on when I’m cooking. With the Elevate set, I still find that I’m using a plate, just because the tool is elevated off the counter doesn’t mean the drips don’t happen. So, does the elevated design specifically solve a problem for me? Not really.
- I’m really picky about my soup ladles. I want to ladle as much as I can from a pot, without having to hold a hot handle and tilt the pot. I’m not a fan of the design of this ladle – the scoop is small and the sides are high. The almost 90-degree angle means it’s more difficult to ladle, especially anything less than 1/4 full pot.
All in all, I still like the set. It’s expensive at $100, but will last for many, many years. I find that the cheaper tools that I own get replaced every two years, so I’m looking forward to keeping this set for a while.
