I broke this upon putting it up. I was putting in the screws, and the plastic pieces designed to hold the screws cracked right off. Even after the first one, I was careful on the second. This meant that I had to ditch the screws that were included, and put my own longer ones in with finishing washers to cover the holes in the plastic that formed as the parts broke off. Now that it's mounted it works great, so if you don't mind having it break instantly, go ahead and buy it. If you aren't a professor of mechanical engineering, you might want to find a better product.

Ok, it's a magnet ... not much to it right? Well the plastic housing is so brittle that the screw tabs break off before the screw even engaged into the drywall. The plastic is so brittle that it will break in your hand (and did with mine). I wouldn't never recommend this product to anyone.

Good price for 12" knife rack; holds multiple & varying sizes of knives safely & convenientlyon the wall. As usual, the order was filled & delivered in 3 days. No need to drive to a shopping center, find a parking space and spend precious time looking for a similar item, priced higher, and additionally pay sales tax when you can have it delivered to your door so quickly & cost effectively from Overstock.com!
I bought 2 of the 12" magnetic knife racks. I measured my space and was a bit off however we found another place to put them. They are very powerful and I have found some of my other kitchen tools hold also. Am very happy and may order one for our BBQ area
Is just what I was looking for, I have used the same versions of this device offered by high end knife makers. Only down side is that the magnetic strips are not as strong as the ones I have used in the past, it is plenty strong enough for the kitchen knives most people use, it holds my 10 chefs knife but I would hesitate to stick a cleaver to it like I have done with the more expensive models.
pretty straight forward, magnetic knife rack, it works. We like it. The only thing is that the outside part of it (where the magnetic strips are mounted) is plastic - so if you're looking for a high-end, all metal magnetic knife rack, this one is not for you.
This magnetic knife rack is great. It easily mounts to your wall, and the magnetism is strong yet a simple twist action as you lift a knife away to use and it comes off with no trouble. I have some substantial knives on my new rack and have come to learn they're not going anywhere unless I want them to. You can buy this item with confidence that it works and is just as described.
I found this product to be exactly what I needed. It isn't very fancy and being made of plastic looks a bit cheap up close, but once its on the wall it looks very nice and functions well. Overall a good purchase unless you want something more fancy then functional.
Decent quality, attractive product for the price. Goes well with black granite countertops. Very strong magnets to hold your cutlery. BUT, be aware that the back of the rack is hollow plastic. So if you want to mount it on a tile backsplash or some such, you will be drilling through tiles to screw mount it (good luck with that one), or building up something (I myself used wood strips and four slightly longer screws that now secure the magnets) into the back of it so it can be flat mounted to the tile with some double-sided, sticky foam tape.
The magnetic knife rack looks nice, however, it is longer than your description stated. I have limited space to work within in the motor home kitchen, so am disappointed in the rack being longer than anticipated. Will now have to figure out a new plan.
I wish I would have looked at one before I ordered it. It would be very simple to make. The holes to screw in the wall don't look very durable. I use it for jewelry, not knives. Not sure I'd trust the stability of sharp knives mounted in this.
We have some really good knives that we don't want to keep in a drawer. This knife holder is great, doesn't take up much room and the magnetization is very strong. It holds 5 culinary knives and they look great hanging on the wall in our pantry.
The rack looks as it does online, so no problem there. The reason I only gave this item 3 stars was because when you pull the knives off the rack, the magnetic bars pull out with the knife. So you need to carefully pull the knife off while holding the rack with your other hand, so all the knives don't move. Hard to explain! This item is usable, though.
