Standardise Kitchenware

The end to unstackable kitchenware

This idea is quite simple really - The standardisation of the shape and size of kitchenware.

This would enhance stackability of bowls, plates or cups of different types and stop the big stack of plates in my kitchen cupboard from falling forwards whenever i open the door.

It may also help when loading dishwashers, maximise storage space in kitchen cupboards and in general, making that every day duty of washing and drying much easier.

       Makes one wonder if the "cubberd" has anything to do with cups or boards at all. Intriguing.

       Rods Tiger: It's not that strange, just plosives run together. Try saying "cup-board" fast and you'll see what I mean.

       Hmm....then there's side boards (and water boards but I think that may be different) which by [rods] initial explanation would be a board for putting sides on. Sides of meat prehaps. Or maybe humerous asides. Seems strange that early furniture was largely designed for the balancing of drinking vessels, legs of lamb or wisecracks. One for the interior design archaeologists perhaps. Laurence Llewellyn Bowen waving trowel manically, arrrrhg. [MrK] I like your idea and have assigned it a standardised croissant, which I hope will form the base of a large stack. If we can standardise fiddly little things like the thread on nuts and bolts then why not this. Style I hear you cry? Pah!

       [Zircon] - Your croissant is much welcomed. I will sit it on my standardised plate next to my many non-standard fishbones.

       Sounds like a Communist Cupboard to me. I won't fishbone this, but I don't think I'd like the idea of every single dish in the world being the same.
