5-Canister Magnetic Spice Rack


Product Information

These clever canisters are a unique way to store small items like spices, herbs and other seasonings. They're also excellent for office supplies or craft and sewing notions. Made of food safe tin, each lid features a clear window for quick identification of the contents. A steel board with magnetic backing is included. For use without the steel board, the magnetic backing allows each canister to be attached to any steel surface, such as a refrigerator, file cabinet or locker. A package of three individual magnetic tins without a mounting strip are available (sold separately).

  • Each canister measures 2-1/2" diam. x 1-7/8" h and has a 4 ounce capacity
  • Perforations in the rim of the lid allow spices to be dispensed without removing the top



  • 14" x 2-7/8"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a spice rack I use these for my spices on my freezer door and they are fantastic. Large enough to hold a substantial amount and easy to open and close. I use my label maker to put the names on them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for spices I bought 30 of these and filled up 25 with all my spices. It looks great up on my fridge and I emptied out an entire section of a kitchen cabinet! One word of advice-- I attempted to wash and dry all of the canisters and lids before filling. This was a mistake because I could see water underneath the plastic tops so I had to take the lids apart to dry them thoroughly. It made it very difficult to put the lids back together and they don't seem as perfectly shaped as they were before I washed them. Also, I got a small cut on my finger on the inside edge of a lid while drying it. All in all- I am glad I did this, but wish I knew about what I learned in advance. There is nothing on the packaging about any of this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NOT JUST FOR SPICES!!! IT'S HEAVEN FOR HAIR STUFF! I have three daughters who share one bathroom. Hair accessories were a constant hassle until I had the idea to buy these spice racks for hair elastic storage. I have a small strip of wall by the bathroom door and it is just the right size. Now, the hair elasticity are sorted by color. I even put them in rainbow order so it looks pretty. If one daughter wants pink and another wants purple, they pull off the magnetic tin with the color they need and bring it to me. When we are done, it pops right back on the wall. I added another strip just below for bobby pins, clippies and small accessories. I have three sets and no more searching for matching hair stuff I think I will get another for monster high accessories in their room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for apartment kitchens This helped me get a lot more cupboard space! Magnets are strong, lids stay on well. I have heard you need to really dry these out when you wash them so they don't rust, but haven't had that experience myself yet. Very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Contain Your Spices I decided that my spice rack was getting way too cluttered. I decided that a spice drawer would be the best option. Although I do not use the magnetic portion of these containers, I still think they look absolutely fantastic in the drawer. They have perfect spice holes as well on the sides. You can adjust so more or less pours out. I would recommend this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it needs to do...very well Great little cannisters -- able to fill them up full of spice and the magnet is strong to hold itself up, vertically on a stainless steel fridge -- not sure if it could hold something heavier like steel nuts and bolts. If it does slip a bit, you should check to make sure that the surface of the magnet and fridge are clean. I had problems with one but it turns out that some gunk had gotten on it...wiped it off and now it sticks with no problem. Would give it 5 stars if it came with labels that you can put on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! I LOVE these containers!!!! The kitchen in my apartment is very small with limited cabinet space and counter top space. Every time I cooked, I had to dig through the cabinet looking for the spice I needed and pulling everything out! Now all of my spices are alphabetized on the side of my fridge where I can use them easily and then put them right back! It saves space and time and a ton of frustration! Even my husband, who is organizationaly deficient and cleaning challenged, puts them back in there spot every time! They are the perfect size! I love the pour/sprinkle holes! Out of the 30 that I bought one had a magnet that was slightly not centered but other than that they are completely perfect! Now I want to find a way to put magnets on everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, works awesome! Best idea! They hold a large amount of spices without taking up too much space. I have limited counter and cabinet storage, these work great on the side of the fridge. They are right at hand for cooking, but still kept out of the way and organized. The lids stay tight and i haven't noticed any coming loose, I have had these for 3 months now. Exactly what I was looking for!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Attractive, Space-Saving Spice Storage I bought the three spice tins without the magnetic bar and have transformed the side of our refrigerator into an attractive spice "rack". I've gotten lots of compliments on how they look, and I love the space they've freed up in our cabinets. My one complaint is that though these containers are incredibly attractive, they are not always the easiest to use. They don't pour quite as nicely as I'd like, so you don't end up with the most accurate spice measurements unless you uncap them, which can create a mess since they store sideways and then get spices lodged in the cap. That being said, however, I would still recommend them. They look really nice and that outweighs their disadvantages in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spacesaving in our travel trailer I bought this magnetic spice rack to use in our travel trailer because I got tired of hauling spices out to my trailer every time we took a trip. These are going to be so nice to hold spices I use regularly and just leave them in the trailer when we get back home. I love to cook but a good cook needs all the right spices, herbs & seasonings. I have them stuck on my range vent-a-hood where they will be handy. The magnets seem strong enough to stay in place even during towing. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I have see similar products on Pinterest but these are the best! I looked at them at others stores but these are the perfect size, they have really strong magnets and when you twist the lid you can have a few holes open for sprinkling the spices or twist another for a pour spout. They are perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these These containers are exactly what I needed. I read some reviews that complained about the magnets but so far mine are fine. I have mine on the inside of my cabinet and not on the side of the refrigerator so they are not easily knocked off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes cooking a pleasure! Our house really doesn't have a convenient cabinet or countertop that works well for our spice collection. I would inevitably have to search multiple cabinets & the pantry to get everything I needed when cooking or baking. I paired these spice jars with the stainless steel dry erase board, which I mounted on our side cabinetry by our refrigerator. I now have all of our spices, labeled & alphabetized, in one place where I can see & get to all of them easily. I absolutely love The Container Store products!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality Out of 4 purchased, two of the racks had the magnet backing peeling off. We glued it back on with gorilla glue, so hopefully that took care of the problem. The magnetic hold is not as strong as I had hoped. We bump the containers constantly and they go flying all over the floor. Luckily, they do not open and spill when they fall, so clearly, they have a pretty good seal on the container.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best spice containers I've found I have been looking for years for spice containers to house my collection of over 100 different spices in a way that makes sense. I have gone through many different sorting systems ... keeping them in baskets, creating a special pull out tray to keep the bottles on, even ordering matching glass jars. The problem always remained though. It was a pain to find exactly what I wanted without having to pull many bottles or bags out. I love these because all my spices are right on my fridge, next to my cooking area, clearly labeled (note I had to create the labels separately). The containers have not leaked. I do not smell my large collection of spices from nearby. Plus, when buying the extra spice jars only (no need for a rack when the stick to the fridge just fine), they are reasonably priced. I even got these as a gift and everyone has loved them! My only complaint and the reason for the four stars is that they feel to me like the magnets could come off. It hasn't happened yet after 6 months, but time will tell!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Innovative Idea I love this product! The design is so contemporary and space saving. I bought four sets of these because I have quite a collection of spices. I lined them up above the back of my stove and it is so convenient! No more retrieving the step stool in order to reach that cupboard over the stove. I did buy a separate set of labels, as the ones that come with the set are pretty useless - spices I never use or even heard of. I had a little trouble getting used to the slots on the sides of the containers but it's nothing I can't adapt to. The strength of the magnets is just right, strong enough to support a full container, but weak enough not to create an annoyance when in a hurry. Great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Magnetic Spice Rack Love this product! Magnets are solid. Has four hole opening for sifting and 1/2 inch opening for full pour. Used these to make a magnetic board with all my spices... love it! Only wish they came with labels (recommend getting white labels as clear are hard to read with the clear top).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spice containers I really wanted to love these spice containers since they are well made and a clever concept. I do think they are much too big for traditional spice containers. Note the size carefully. I am keeping them since I can not find anything else I like but I do believe they would be a lot more attractive and functional if they were smaller in their overall size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple & Beautiful Solution My newly remodeled kitchen is tiny, and the wooden wall-mounted spice rack I had custom-carved twenty years ago would not do in a sleek black-and-white room.These Magnetic Spice Tins, which I purchased in 3-tin packages (#10029398), were the perfect answer. I now have 30 mounted on the side of my white refrigerator, arranged alphabetically. The contrasting colors of the different herbs and spices showing through the tins' plexiglass covers create a lovely display.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Small Kitchen Solution I live in an apartment and I needed a way to clear some counter space. I've been thinking of making a magnetic spice rack for a few months and took advantage of a recent sale on Magnetic Bulletboard by Umbra. The magnets are strong on these containers (take up the entire base) and I was able to get all of my spices put up. If you decide to wash the containers before using them, note that the plastic covers can be popped in and out, but be careful of the sharp edges on the containers lid (I learned that the hard way). These are the metal version of the white plastic containers that can be found in the office supply section. Be aware, this will cost you about twice as much as a DIY solution for the same amount of containers. However, I figured that the time spent more than made up for the expense. In truth, I would have spent the same amount on all the supplies, but I would have had about 50 4 oz containers rather than 30 2 oz containers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I love these canisters. I created an Alton-Brown inspired space rack in my pantry closet. I used to have an over-the-door spice rack and the bottles were always falling off. This is a great alternative - and fun! I made labels with a label maker, and made sure that all of the openings face up top when I put them away. They are alphabetized and everything... a dream for this gal!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for I love these magnetic spice tins! I had an old spice rack that took up a bunch of room on my counter, so I was looking for something I could hang on the wall to take up less space. These are perfect and they look great! You don't even have to take the lids off - you just twist to get the spice out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great product for blind people This is the best thing for a blind person to organize spices! Braille labels stick easily to the lids, or you can simply turn the lid to one of its side openings and take a good sniff Also since you can stick them on the side of your fridge there is no digging into the back of a crowded cabinet to pick up each and every bottle to read the labels...Simply slide fingers across the top of jars and find the one you want. I'll bet this part would be great for the sighted too - you cook more and better because you can see what you have to cook with! Another pro is that the jars have wide-mouthed tops. It can be difficult for blind people to pour and measure spices accurately. But these lids are easily removed and the jars are wide enough that you can even scoop with a tablespoon measure. So measuring is no longer a problem! My one complaint which keeps it from getting 5 stars is that I really think the magnetic disc on the back of the jars could be a bit stronger. I have 9 jars which came with a spice rack of a different brand and theirs are much stronger and more secure on the side of my fridge. But they do not sell the jars separate from the rack, which is rather dumb because, really! nobody has only 9 spices! I have 15 of these jars now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Success!! My husband and I decided to get these containers to hold our spices. We live in Manhattan and have limited space in our kitchen. Our spices were all jammed in a cabinet and I couldn't even see what I had. (As a result, we sometimes had 3 jars of the same spice!). We researched these little containers - and there are many different variations which are not all created equally. After a lot of research, we decided to go with these and we couldn't be happier. The magnet on the back is strong enough to hold the container on the fridge without sliding down. The container is deep enough to hold a substantial amount of spice. You can pour or shake the spice from the container without opening the container - just by twisting the lid. The downside was that these did not come with labels so I bought some, printed the labels on the computer and then had to cut the labels down to fit on the surface of the container. I used Avery 22825 clear, round labels. In the end, it looks GREAT!

Community Q&A

Are the perforations in the lid always open? When buying the tins alone in bulk, is it possible to designate the amount of each type of opening?

Asked by: AndrewToy
No the perforations in the lid aren't always open. You turn the lid to be "closed" over the holes to prevent spilling or "open" over the holes to pour.

can I buy an extra magnetic spice rack strip seperately?

I am wanting to purchase at least 2 of the spice rack strips (with 5 containers each) but also want an extra strip so that I can buy an extra 3 pack of containers (and have 3 magnetic strips and 13 spice containers total) so that I can spread them out a little and maybe add a few other things with little magnets. Are the strip available seperately? Also, are the strip themselves magnetic? Meaning can they hold something like a knife as well? (it seems to be a sheet of metal mounted on a magnet (for mounting) and you have to stick magnets to the strip, the strip itself is not magnetic)? Because in addition to this spice system I'm setting up, I want 2-4 magnetic knife holder strips as well so I can get some of my drawer space back! Thank you!
