I’ve been looking for ways to make my kitchen better organized and my cooking process more efficient. In addition to installing shelving, I am adding more vertical storage solutions.
I received the SUMPRI 15-inch Magnetic Knife Holder Set for a review.
Installation of Magnetic Knife Bars
How do you attach the magnetic knife bar to a wall?
The best solution for hanging the magnetic knife bar on your wall is to use the screws and anchors that SUMPRI provides with the kit. Because it is made of plastic, you must not over-tighten the screws.
I used Scotch Extreme Mounting Tape to attach one of the knife bars to my wood cabinetry. The tape is designed to hold up to 10lbs. Unfortunately, this was not strong enough to hold my heavier kitchen knives, as I found that the knife bar kept falling off.
However, mounting tape may be an option if you plan to use these magnetic bars for lightweight items that are not hazardous.
Is the SUMPRI knife holder magnetic strip strong enough for large knives?
Yes. If you use the recommended mounting screws and anchors, this will work with large, heavy knives.
You can see in my photo that some of my knives are fairly long. You may want to consider using both magnetic knife bars to provide extra support for the blades.
Is the back of the SUMPRI knife holder magnetic, too?
You may be wondering if the knife holder is magnetic so that you can attach it to a fridge or other magnetic surface. No, it does not include a magnetic strip on the backside.
Storage Ideas Using Magnetic Bars
You can use magnetic bars in several places throughout your home. Some ideas for how you could use them include:
- Small tool storage
- Add magnets to spice jars
- Hang measuring cups
- Hang family photos and notes
- Metal toys such as cars
- Add magnets to small containers for craft supplies, scissors, and tools
- Place inside bathroom mirror to hold bobby pins, tweezers, and makeup.
