Use Dollar Store Burner Covers for Spices

3 Materials
10 Minutes

Counter space in my kitchen is at a premium so I use magnetic tins on the side of my refrigerator to keep my spices handy. Newer stainless steel refrigerators are not magnetic on the front, only the sides. Unfortunately, I have so many spices they go all the way to the floor making it more difficult to find the one needed.

The side of my refrigerator with the spices I don’t use very often.

Dollar store burner covers provide a perfect solution. They come in different designs and are magnetic. I thought the design was cute so I used them as is but you could paint them.

Punch a hole in the side of the burner and twist in a cup hook. Make the hole smaller than the stem of the cup hook, so that you get a tight fit. I found that my cup hook was strong enough to hold the filled tins.

Twist another cup hook into the wall where you want to hang your spices. Slip the burner over that cup hook.

Place your spices on the covers. I put the ones I used the most on these close to my stove and the rest are still on my refrigerator. The best part is I can take the entire cover off the hook and lay it anywhere on the counters for easy access when I’m preparing meals. Another plus — I can move spices around from the refrigerator to the cover depending on what I’m using the most at the time, such as during the holidays!

    How do the magnetic tins stick to the rim of the stove covers? Is the tin magnet strong enough to hold onto the rim of the cover?
