I have long loved the idea of magnetic spice tins and had planned to craft some for our new space. However, after really digging into reviews, I found that many of the tins don’t seal tightly which has led to issues with the herbs staying as fresh as possible. There were also stories of sea salt ending up in solid blocks in magnetic tins. Unable to find tins that had great reviews for this purpose, I decided to instead use the original jars my spices came in – or buy empty glass jars with screw tops – and instead make them magnetic.
Now everything is right where we need it and we can easily add more jars to the side of the fridge as our spice and herb collection grows.
