Best magnetic knife holders and racks 2023 tried and tested

Jun 13, 2023

Organisation never looked so stylish

magnetic knife holder is one of those things you probably didn't deem necessary until you were cooking up a feast against the clock and realised you couldn't find the one "good" knife you were looking for.

Sure, you could settle for a lesser tool during your kitchen preparation, but you know how much easier it would make slicing through your fish, meat and vegetables by employing that razor sharp Japanese or chef knife that's just out of reach.

The answer? A magnetic knife holder to keep everything in its place when it's not in your hand.

A magnetic knife holder helps you save countertop and drawer space, as you can store your knives vertically on the wall or under a cabinet. Perfect for those cooking in a compact kitchen or anyone who lives with children who might spontaneously reach into the drawer without realising, a knife holder keeps all of your sharpest tools close to you but away from anyone else.

The obvious benefit is not having to reach into a drawer yourself and slice your finger open when searching for the right knife. But these magnetic holders are also beneficial from a more general organisational perspective.

When choosing your new magnetic knife holder, look for one with a high-grade magnet, so your knives don't slip or fall off. The magnet should be strong enough to hold your knives securely in place without any looking like they're about to jump ship.

For those looking to mount their holder, pay close attention to size - this means you will need to decide where you are placing it before you begin the shopping process.
