Eh-vree time, I try a new recipe it always calls for some obscure (well obscure to me) spice that I don’t have in the cupboard so I toodle of to Sainsbury’s and buy it. This has led to a cupboard with 25+ spices in it. I’m sure there are doubles, possibly triples, but I haven’t bothered sorting them.
What makes it worse is every time I need a spice I now have to empty out the entire contents of the cupboard as the one I want is always at the very back. This is one of pet hates.
So, I’ve decided to do something about it. I don’t have any counter top space for a spice rack, or a space to hang one on the wall, nor do I have space to position one inside of a cupboard. So, I have decided to go for magnetic spice jars and stick them to the cooker hood. It was a bit of a challenge, but I eventually found some at Sainsbury’s £6 for a pack of 9.
What do you think?
And if you’ve never seen Michael McIntyre’s routine on his spice cupboard you have to! It’s a scream!

Just wanted to say thank you (& Michael McIntyre) for making me laugh this afternoon…..I’ve not had a great day but that’s really cheered me up…..I might get the 5 spice out tonight now, I like its arrogance!
Wow magnetic spice jars – very cool!
I’ve officially reached middle age!!
Oooo I love those! I may have to get some!
Yep this is a great idea! Space saving indeed :)
Love the clip – so true
Very jealous of your spice idea – think i might need to do that (slight issue is that I wasn't going to have an extractor fan in the new kitchen…. not that we can afford it quite yet) – oh need to go and find those jars!
I LOVE that idea *stores in brain for future kitchen renovations*
The only thing that would worry me is identifying them all (can just about do turmeric and corriander seeds…)
I found the labels at Colander’s Kitchen shop, £2.50.
Just hope they don’t stop dropping on the floor.
I like being able to put a teaspon into them for measuring.
50% off on the Sainsbury’s website…they also come with a magnetic plate if you don’t have a hood. I’ve also seen people stick them on the fridge???
