Stylish and smart but...
on 14 July 2012
sadly I found this to be too small to take my Joseph Joseph 6 piece utensil set and 6 different Oxo Good Grip large utensils that are in regular use. As I liked the design so much I kept it and use it for storing kitchen gadgets and other small items as many can be placed with '1 leg in and 1 leg out' such as the Oxo can opener and garlic crush, similar to the picture included submitted by another owner.
I would recommend the Oxo large Utensil tidy (£20 Amazon) to anyone looking for an utensil holder who has a good selection of kitchen items to store especially if the have a decent width to the handle. I have about 8 at each end in the deeper sections and been able to separate blade types from bowl(spoon) shapes whilst in the shallower centre section I keep my baking items such as spatulas, whisk, pastry brush etc.
The Simplehuman Utensil Holder does look good now with its array of shorter black chrome coloured items but when I tried to load it originally with my newer. vivid coloured set of Joseph Joseph it looked fine colourwise but a bit 'top heavy'. Now it looks the part, fully loaded with shorter items and I am pleased with it for this use but do not think it would have been so visually pleasing with tall utensils to my eye but thankfully everybody is different.
