What Is Joseph Joseph?
Joseph Joseph is a kitchen products manufacturer perhaps best known for its indexed chopping boards and nested mixing bowls. They also make space saving kitchen items like folding dish drying wracks, nesting spatulas and other items you appreciate whether you’re living in a small apartment, RV, boat or camping.
In this vein, Joseph Joseph has a portable countertop washing basin that serves several purposes. What are the pros and cons of the Joseph Joseph brand portable wash tub?
Pros of the Joseph Joseph Wash and Drain Dish Tub
With this wash tub you get a relatively large versatile wash basin for the money.
It comes with two carry handles and four feet to make moving it full of water or clean dry dishes simple. Its integrated plug and strainer eliminates most of the parts you need to manage with other portable manual dishwashers.
You can use this wash and drain dish tub on the counter to hand clean dishes while someone else uses your kitchen sink. It is also small enough to fit inside most sinks if you want to hand wash several items without wasting water and energy as a full standard dishwasher load would.
With a footprint roughly 12” squared, this portable dishwasher can handle most plates laying in the water and nearly anything held at an angle and hand scrubbed – including some that many countertop dishwashers can’t. If you have a countertop dishwasher that can’t clean your serving trays, cookie sheets or largest plates, you’ll want to buy this wash basin to supplement.
This wash and drain dish tub can serve as a portable dishwasher when you buy other Joseph Joseph brand (or other brand) bottle scrubbers, scrub pads and accessories. But unlike some portable manual dishwashers, you can use this for hand washing your pantyhose and other delicate clothing items, not just dishes. It is versatile, which is why you may use it for washing fruit and vegetables before rinsing it and using it to clean the dishes you used to make dinner.
A side benefit of this portable dishwasher basin is that you could hand wash delicate clothes and not waste the electricity and water running the clothes washing machine would. You can wash sweaters or printed T-shirts in it without worrying that you’ll lose the designs.
It weighs less than two pounds without water. It is compact and light enough for anyone to use and move as needed.
It sits stably on the countertop if you want to use it there or securely in the sink. And it rarely leaks like some countertop dishwashers.
Cons of the Joseph Joseph Wash and Drain Dish Tub
You can only use it for hand-washing. Don’t put it in the dishwasher to scrub clean when you get home from the camping trip.
This portable washing basin comes in several colors. Not all sellers offer all of the colors.
The open design means that this portable washing tub won’t cause problems when you’re cleaning serving implements, barbeque tongs and other oddly shaped items that vertical portable dishwashers with a row of flat scrub brushes won’t clean well.
This versatile portable wash tub is perfect for use in the kitchen, bathroom or outside. Whether you use it because you only have one sink, don’t have dishwashers or washing machines in your residence or supplement those appliances to save water and energy, this portable wash bin by Joseph Joseph is an excellent investment.
