Joseph Joseph Expands Kitchenware Line

Expanding on its offering of multifunctional food preparation, cutlery and cleaning tools, Joseph Joseph is introducing a number of new products in each category at the International Home + Housewares Show, here.

For cutlery, the company is introducing a self-locking knife block, LockBlock, and a 6-piece knife block set. Designed for parents with young children, LockBlock provides a solution for safely storing kitchen knives. The design locks knives inside the block with a Cam-lock mechanism and requires an adult-sized hand to operate, the company said. LockBlock is available as a standalone product with universal knife slots, or with its own set of six knives. It has a suggested retail price starting at $60.

In its multifunctional food prep assortment, Joseph Joseph is also introducing a twist grater. The 2-in-1 etched grater features an adjustable handle that allows consumers to grate food in different positions. It also comes with a reversible plastic sheath that protects blades when stored, and can be flipped and used to collect and measure grated food. It has a suggested retail price of $20.
