Having your knives, forks and spoons all mixed up in an untidy cutlery drawer is not only frustrating and time consuming, it can also be hazardous, when sharp chef’s knives are in the mix.

Which is why, a cutlery organiser is actually one of the most useful kitchen purchases you can make.

Cutlery trays usually all follow a similar design with sections for big spoons, knives and forks at the back and a small area for teaspoons at the front.

But Joseph Joseph DrawerStore Compact Cutlery Organiser tray has been hailed as “amazingly clever kitchen storage”, due to its space-saving design.

What the reviews say

With over 11,000 glowing reviews on Amazon, this home gadget is not to be sniffed at.

Here’s what the reviewers say:

  • “This is an amazing product that every kitchen will benefit from, but especially smaller kitchens.”

  • “This is a fantastic product. Very well designed so as to utilise the unused vertical space in a drawer, and thereby allow tighter packing or more items to be stored there.”

  • “Love this, saves so much space in our cutlery drawer.”

  • “I’ve got quite a lot of cutlery and this is one of the best trays I’ve ever purchased. The tray fits into the small drawer next to my cooker and holds eight of each item with space for more. Another thing I like about the tray is no more accidentally cutting yourself on a knife putting things away.”

  • “One of my best buys from Amazon.”
