Nest 8 saves space in the kitchen

Joseph Joseph’s Nest 8 collection of nesting kitchen items is a fantastic way to save space in your cupboards:

The Nest 8 collection includes four measuring cups (sizes 1-, 1/2-, 1/3-, and 1/4-cup), a sieve, a colander, a small mixing bowl, and a large mixing bowl.

They also make a nice, lay-flat colander:

We’ve written about the Joseph Joseph cheese grater before, and it seems that the new items in their line continue to be space-saving solutions. Thanks to reader Cindy for tipping us off to these uncluttered kitchen options.

    I have the Nest 8 and really love it! Not only it saves spaces, it’s also soooo cute! 😉

    Crate and Barrel sells an identical set of nesting bowls and meas. spoons in all white melamine.

    I bought the cheapo $10 version of nesting bowls and cups from World Market. Same cute rainbow color scheme.

    Ooh it’s so cute! Want! Except I keep my measuring cups and all my bowls in different places (cups in a drawer, bowls in a cabinet across the kitchen)…it would take some getting used to.

    I think you guys need to read the negative reviews of this set on Amazon. Cute, but terrible quality, and because they warp in heat, the stackability disappears quickly. Measuring cups don’t let you run a knife across the top because of the design. Etc. etc.

    I like the stacking bowls and measuring cups, but my bowls from Pottery Barn stack nicely and are durable and my Kitchen Aid measuring cup nest and you can use a knift to level them off.

    At first glance the lay flat colander looks neat, but it has an awfully big footprint – can it be stored on its side or will it just flop over?

    I like this product for multitasking in the kitchen.

    The entire website is kitchen utensils. Some great, some a bit uni-tasker.

    great idea but good point about the plastic and quality.

    I’m pretty sure I’d be able to find a collander that fits inside my steel mixing bowl; and my existing steel measuring cups do stack well.

    Kinda frustrating – come on manufacturers, if you’re gonna do something, do it well!

    oh I should add – I’m still coveting the blissful pot set that was featured here ages ago

    MSR. Mmmm. Pretty.

    A friend of mine has these and to echo the posters above, they are quite poor quality and don’t last. The sieve especially in her set is very warped. As a result they don’t all stack together so neatly anymore…

    My problem is that i hate nesting products. It’s a pain to get to the size you want. I have the traditional 3-bowl set and I keep them on 2 shelves so the sizes are staggered and I can grab the one I want easily. It still saves some space.

    I purchased this exact product in September; be warned that the ‘sifter’ is not to be used with even SLIGHTLY warm liquids (I poured lukewarm water through it and it shrunk up so much that the light green bowl couldn’t fit inside), and that the plastic of the vessels in general will melt at low temperatures. I left the 1-cup measuring cup near my stove on a dish-drying rack, and it completely warped. Also the plastic scratches easily..

    Great idea though, and it was an attractive product at first!!

    I love the colors and the idea behind this, but when I looked for it on Amazon I was disturbed by the negative reviews it received. For the cost of this item, I feel like consumers should get a better product in return.

    If anyone out there knows of a similar but better item, please share!
