Fridge mount magnetic knife rack?

Posted by kmickleson (My Page) on

This type knife holder has magnets on the back which let you attach it to your fridge, which I require because I have no wall space for a wall-mount version of it. I bought one years ago from one of those chintzy catalogues like Harriet Carter or something--and I still have it but am looking to find a longer replacement. I've Googled every imaginable combo of terms, checked current "home" catalogues to try & find one to no avail. [Many wall-mount versions, but none with magnets to hold up on fridge.] I can't believe nobody's come up with a modern day version of this immensely helpful item. Anyone have any leads?

Why don't you attach strip magnets to the back of a magnetic knife rack that you like. You can get adhesive magnet strips at the hardware store. You can even screw them to the back of the rack for extra strength.

IKEA has a magnetic bar that's very strong. And cheap! I have a couple of fact, I picked up 2 for .50 each in the AS-IS room. It has mounts on each end, or it can be used magnetically (sp?).

If you live near an IKEA, it's worth a shot to see if it will suit your needs. If I remember correctly, it's $5.99 in the US.

Hope that helps!

Thanks so much for your info. I had in fact come across the Ikea one on my search, but they didn't say it was magnetic on the back, so I was reluctant to order it. With your input, I went ahead and ordered 2 of 'em!

Again, thanks. Amazing how great these forums are for getting any obscure bit of information.
