Here’s what people who’ve purchased this mounting strip have to say about it.

“I’m so happy I ordered this magnetic knife holder. My drawers were too full & even though I have plastic covers for all my knives, I just didn’t like putting my hands in the drawer where they were kept; but I didn’t want a block taking up space on my counter. This provided the perfect solution. I mounted it on the wall next to my stove and the counter where I do all my chopping/cutting & am pleased to have everything I need within reach & now have space in my drawers for things that should be there. It was simple to install even for me who has arthritic hands.” says one user.

“LOVE IT. A very good quality product that adds a nice, clean looking, even professional feel to your kitchen.

It’s bigger than I thought. So far I have two chefs knives, two paring knives, a steak knife, one very small knife, bread knife, and large cutting knife on it and it’s not full yet!

It comes with all the screws and hardware needed to install on the wall-you will need a drill to install. It has been nearly a year and the magnetic bar hasn’t moved a bit, even with daily use and the addition of heavy butcher knives!” quips another satisfied customer.

“The magnet is strong and holds plenty of my everyday knives. I decided to put on the side of my fridge and it hold perfectly when you remove the back and stick directly on. I didn’t need anything extra to hold it in place either. I’d like to get one more for the rest of tools because this so much better than the block! Now I have more counter space.” says another.

With tons of satisfied reviews on this latest knife storage solution that shoppers and home cooks alike are so obsessed with, i’d think that this is a necessary addition to your kitchen.
