Default Eliminating Counter Top Spice Rack

We've been wanting to get a toaster oven or similar, but didn't have the counter space. Karen came up with a great DIY version for spice jars.
This cleared enough space for a toaster oven and then some.

The top jars are 4 oz and the bottom ones are 1.5 oz.

Interesting aside = Magnets will not stick to the front of my new fridge, they will stick to the side.

Is it textured? We had the same thing happen with a dishtowel/potholder rack in a house we rented for a short time. Thought the thing was useless until we moved into this house and tried it on our fridge. You can hardly pull the rack off the fridge, have to slide it off the edge.

That's fantastic!

I take it that they don't slide or fall off when you open the door?

Like Andy magnets don't stick to the front of my new fridge. Must have been invented by a fridge clutter hater.

When we had the cabinets designed we planned for a spice cabinet beside the stove - it has three Lazy Susan's and is sure handy.

Please post a photo when you can, John.

I have dedicated two whole cabinets to spices, herbs and condiments and am always rummaging, muttering and swearing, trying to find what I want.

when it was time for a new fridge I secretly brought along a magnet to ensure nothing would stick to the door.....

The cabinets are locally sourced (rustic alder) alder from WA and OR and made by a company in Vancouver, WA.

Our refrigerator is stainless of the front so no magnets, they all go on the side.

My stove is to the immediate left.

I might be able to adapt mine to John's system.

We have another cabinet with two shelves dedicated to olive oil and vinegars... then there are the cookbooks.
