Joseph Joseph Arena Dish Drainer
Stylish but hasn't lasted longer than 18 months
Unfortunately I bought this drainer about 18 months ago and it has now developed mould that I can not shift.
I am really disappointed, as I bought this product because it looked much better quality than the other plastic drainers I've seen. It's got a really stylish vibe about it combined with the matching sink caddy, really makes my kitchen look great. However, it doesn't really drain well and whilst I do my best to keep it clean, its now developed some black mould that I cannot shift!! Not sure if this is due to poor drainage or the type of water through my taps or whether i've just been plain unlucky and got a duff one.
As for size, it works well for a family of 3 - the picture pretty much shows it capabilities. Sadly though am now debating whether to get another or to look for something else.

Ideal to compliment other Joseph products. However not suitable for lots of washing up. Good addition if you have a dishwasher and occassional bits to wash up.

Works well, looks great.
A great item to give your kitchen a modern, uncluttered look. Works a treat, holds two place settings and drains well.
We purchased the matching Flume draining mat to increase the draining area, well pleased with both items.

Elegant and clever but somewhat limited
An interesting and attractive alternative to wire drainers which elegant and clever but somewhat limited. Can't hold too many big plates, and plates/dishes may fall over, though has lots of space for cutlery. Also a little difficult to clean.

Works really well - study and well designed.
After going through several dish drainers I decided to spend a little extra and buy this in the grey colour. It is so practical, study and holds more than you think (Although some thought has to be given to how you stack it). Ideal for 2 people and copes weill with a full wash up of plates, glasses etc.

I bought this product and I'm going to take it back because it holds hardly any plates and if you have pans and bowls then you're stuffed. It doesn't cater for a family of four unless you have a dishwasher and never eat at home. It looks stylish and goes very well with my kitchen decor but the practicality of it is useless.

Shocked to see so many good reviews?!! It doesn't drain, it doesn't hold hardly a thing. Even my small baking trays were too large! In fact, unless you only use one plate at a time it's a definite no!
This is the first time I have ever felt the need to write a review on anything, but I had to express my disappointment.

I love the style of Joseph and Joseph products and I thought this drainer very classy and it suits me down to the ground ... however, I find it very fiddly to clean...I had to buy a separate brush to clean in between the grooves...but all in all it is a very handy item.
