Shaker Thumbs

We haven't had a Shaker Thumbs in more than a year (!), so we're long overdue. Shaker Thumbs is your opportunity to give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to a product or service you have used and that you'd recommend to other Shakers or warn them away from.

Today, I am giving a big thumbs up to my Joseph Joseph Elevate Carousel:

This, from the product description, is what makes the utensils so fantastic: "Each tool has an innovative weighted handle with an integrated tool rest, ensuring that, when an Elevate™ utensil is placed down, its head is always raised off of the work surface." No more constantly washing my spoon rest after every time I cook, and no more getting food on the counter if I set a utensil down in the middle of cooking. They are THE BEST!

Here's the pasta spoon on my counter, so you can see what I mean.

I got this set a long time ago, probably at least a year ago now, and I use them all the time. They've been through countless hand-washings and dishwasher cycles. They've held up beautifully. I got a set for my friend Ari for her birthday, and she loved them so much she bought a set for another friend, who loved them so much... Et cetera.

They're a little pricey, but, in my experience so far, totally worth the cost. They've held up way, way better than any cheaper utensil set I've ever had.

(Also: I got my set on eBay, for less than the retail price. If you keep your eyes peeled, you might find a good deal, too!)

Just to be abundantly clear, I am not affiliated in any way with Joseph Joseph, nor am I receiving any form of payment for recommending this item. It's just a thing I've personally found super useful and am happy to recommend.
