Magnetic Spice Rack
5 Minute $5 Cocktail Shaker
PVC Kitty Condo
Love this idea as I have little space.Thanks a lot for this :)
@ guaps Maybe put the 3 magnets down the SIDE of the tin instead of on the bottom?This will allow the tin to remain vertical and thus eliminate the problem.Hope this helps :)
This works for some applications. However, it's very hard to grind cinnamon to the flour-like consistency of ground cinnamon at home. To do that you need a very high end grinder.
I have a cinnamon comment. Instead of storing the dry cinnamon, how 'bout buying cinnamon sticks and grinding it fresh? - mmatthews-1
This is about garlic salt, but might work for garlic powder, as well. I had so much trouble with clumping that finally I put the container in the freezer, and now it goes for a year or more and is always quite shakable. I realize that doing so would mean it couldn't be used in the fridge door "rack," but might be worth it to save money on having to replace it frequently. - Catley
re lids getting stuck: I guess you could give the thread a quick wipe before closing tightly and maybe a rubber seal where lid meets jar. I find the containers with the shaker perforations a bigger issue as there's always a bit of residue left that stops it sealing and the contents get damp - chicken salt, vegetable salt and any other salt-based premix of seasoning is the biggest problem but paprika, onion powder, garlic powder etc have the same. Your solution here would probably help solve it - Databanks
Turning the fridge door into the spice rack - brilliant! Thank you - Databanks
Ikea sells these containers "already made" (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80102919/) - and I had several in which I put a spice blend containing garlic and/or salt - and there was a hygroscopic/galvanic reaction that ate right through the metal.Caveat emptor. - VancoD
