Wall-mounted magnetic strips are a handy way to store more than just knives. You can also use them to keep metal tools, like food processor blades and attachments, and other loose items like pot lids organised and easy to access. The key to this idea is to hang the strip at the back of your cabinet, in otherwise unused space (so obviously you wouldn't want to do this if you would stack items in front of the strip, or your cabinets aren't deep.) Accessories for small appliances, like food processor blades, will only need one strip. You may need multiple strips for larger items like pot lids. This storage method is especially useful for delicate or dangerous gear (like sharp blades) that you don't want just mixed in with everything at the bottom of the cabinet, and keeps everything where you can easily spot it when you need to use it.
