Very few people love washing up.

Not only is cleaning plate after plate mind-numbingly dull (don’t get us started on cutlery) but piling all utensils and crockery onto a small draining rack has a habit of turning into rather a perilous task.

Hence why we couldn’t wait to shout about a rather genius solution.

While browsing John Lewis’ best-selling items, we came across this Joseph Joseph Extend Expandable Dish Rack.

It’s certainly a great, space-saving solution but is it worth it’s £50 price tag? Yes, according to. the stellar reviews.

Why we rate it

Joseph Joseph Extend Expandable Dish Rack ticks all the boxes, as it can be extended to almost double its size to hold more of your kitchen utensils when they have been washed.

The rack not only has raised ribs so water isn’t trapped underneath the items, but also has a sloping base and integrated plug, which allow any excess water to drain away.

It is also fitted with a nifty cutlery drainer, which can be moved to suit your set up.

Plus it has non-scratch prongs to prop up your plates and bowls, so you don’t have to worry your finest cutlery will not be damaged.

The household item is available to buy from John Lewis & Partners, as well as Amazon, and has received glowing reviews on both sites from shoppers.

While it usually retails for £50 on John Lewis, we’ve managed to find it on sale on Amazon, reduced from £55 to £41.93.

What the reviews say

With over 2,000 glowing reviews, 73% of which have been five star rated, it is no surprise customers are flocking to buy this household item.

Here’s what the reviews say:

  • “I love this it’s the best drainer I’ve ever had!’s brilliant with the opening spout that can be adjusted to direct water into your sink & when you haven’t got many pots can make the drainer smaller and best of all it’s small enough then to put away in cupboard under the sink.”

  • “Amazing! Wish I’d purchased sooner….This was recommended to me so I purchased somewhat dubiously. It’s amazing though. I can fit a fairly big load of washing up on it and it’s so secure, nothing falls over or off...It’s worth every penny.”

  • “Amazing product. The best drainer I have ever purchased. You can stack your plates or bowls or pans in any direction you like.”

  • “Perfect for what I wanted, love that you can drain the excess water away and it's extendable. Quality that you expect from Joseph Joseph. Also bought my daughter one and she loves it, had to order one for my daughter in law as well now as she saw one and wanted one.”

  • “Perfect for what I wanted, love that you can drain the excess water away and it's extendable. Quality that you expect from Joseph Joseph.”
