Magnetic See & Store Containers is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Magnet could be stronger These are made of cheap-ish plastic, but they don't look bad and serve their purpose. Can't complain much for the price. The magnet could stand to be a bit stronger though. The barcode sticker is large and stretches completely across the magnet. The thing barely stays attached to whatever you stuck it to if you don't remove the sticker, and the adhesive doesn't like to let go of the magnet... so you are left with a thin strip of the sticker when you rip it off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for storage, not ideal for spices My apartment is rather tight and I was looking for a way to store my spices out of the way and keep them accessible at the same time. With the magnetic back, these were perfect for hanging on the refrigerator. However, the salt granules often get caught in the seam between the rotating lid and the base container. Same goes for the pepper and garlic powder. I do notice the salt more though because of the coarse granules. If the seal was tighter and the spices didn't get caught in the space in between, this would be ideal because the storage is great and it adds a little spice to the decor of the apartment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sooooo cute These containers are so cute. They stick to my utility wall and hold my small embellishments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for little pieces. Convent way to visible see and store anything small. I originally purchased a set that came with a magnetic bar, I returned it and got infidel ones since I got 1 less container for the same price and could use it on any of the metal in my Elfa unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingenious These are amazing in a small kitchen. I grow and dehydrate my own herbs and this keeps a good amount at my finger tips. I love the magnetic feature.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The lid isn't designed to come off. The lid isn't designed to come off. It is meant to twist to align the hole on the lid and a hole on the container to then shake or pour out the contents. I wanted and am using it for paper clip but don't like this function. Also, bought two so could use the other for small binder clips but won't use it because I literally can't take the lid off. They need to better describe this item! I will probably exchange them in store. However, the appearance is great looking. That's the positive. I gave it three stars because it doesn't work for me, but if that's what you want hen it's a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT CONCEPT! These little magnetic holders are great for office items in my home office. I would have rated them 5 stars like most all my products from Container Store, BUT some of the tops are very, very hard to remove / twist off. Also, I had to remove some heavier things, like metal binder clips, metal paper clips, etc., as they tend to slide down magnetic strip a little bit. Other than that, they are great. I saw these being used on one of the cable TV organizing shows called "Neat" and I was impressed. Leave it to the Container Store to have them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Spice Mixes I bought these containers for DIY spice rubs as a gift for my boyfriend. They were perfect. The lid turns to open a little dispenser that you can set to sprinkle out spices or dispense more. I just glued on some homemade labels and they were perfect. They are also magnetic if you would like to use them for something like paper clips instead. And since they are magnetic they also stack on top of one another and stay well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more hunting I love these I stuck them to the fridge and used a label maker so hubby would know which spice is which. The magnets are strong but we have high humidity so I re-glued them on with super glue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I love these! I've used them for quite a while and bought more. I wish I could order the smaller size online. A long trip into the store to buy them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for Office too! I bought these in stainless steel to organize paper clips, etc. They have magnetic bases so I can stick them to the magnet strip above my desk. I need more!

slit or only perforation?

Wondering if there is a "slit" in the top or only the perforation. Looking to use for Box Tops, etc.
Asked by: vic4wcom
The lid is solid and the "shaker" perforations are on the side of the lid.

Are these freezer safe?

These items are not rated or tested to use in freezing cold temperatures. Since these items are plastic, we would not recommend them for use in the freezer.
