I have been having a lot of trouble trying to find the right gifts for certain people in my family. Mainly the guys – my husband and my brother are really difficult to buy for. So when Joseph Joseph got in touch and asked if I would like to have a look at their website and see if anything caught my eye, I jumped at the chance! My husband loves cooking and I knew there would be something that would be perfect of him. And I was right – the Elevate Knives Carousel was ideal!

Elevate Knives Carousel from Joseph Joseph Review

First of all, let’s talk about how it looks – I really love the design of the Elevate Knives Carousel. The black with the splash of colour is great – it’s interesting without being overwhelming. The individual colour splash for each knife also means that you know which is which. The black looks really nice in our kitchen. And I think it would look great in a lot of kitchens – black goes with anything right?

Elevate Knives Carousel and Box

The carousel itself is stylish and functional. The weighted base means that it won’t tip over. The fact that the carousel rotates in an added bonus so you don’t have to keep lifting and moving it. The magnetic slots of the knives is a clever feature too, they almost put themselves away! I love that we can store our sharp knives on the kitchen work top, out of the draws and most definitely out of the reach of little, inquisitive hands.

Elevate Knives Carousel - how it looks

Each of the knives can fit in each of the magnetic slots in the carousel so that you don’t have to match them up. This is great when they have all just come out of the wash!


There are six knives in the Elevate Knives Carousel;
3 1/2″ paring knife
4 1/4″ serrated knife
5″ Santoku knife (I had to look that one up – it’s great at slicing, dicing and mincing!)
6″ chefs knife
8″ carving knife
8″ bread knife

Each knife is stainless steel with a non-stick silicone-coated blade. They have a tool rest and a weighted handle, which means that when the are put down flat the handle touches the work surface not the tip of the blade. Which is a great way to keep things hygienic and reduce mess!


The Elevate Knives Carousel is fab – it’s a really stylish set of knives that are well designed and great to use. The splash of colour really adds to the design of the carousel. I think the Elevate Knives Carousel  would make a great gift for someone who loves spending time in the kitchen. If you like the look of this then check out the Joseph Joseph website as they have an amazing range of products and lots of great gifts ideas too!
