The Base

Hidden attraction

The magnetic inner wall holds your knives safely and keeps them easily accessible. It also means that you won’t dull your blades by sliding your knives into the slits of a traditional knife block (and is much easier to clean).

Holder of all things: ample storage for your favorite tools and up to three knives.

Modern design that complements any countertop, keeping everything organized and easy to reach.

The perfect update to the standard utensil holder and knife block.

Perfect fit for my kitchen

I wish thaI would have gotten this sooner. It's exactly what I needed: something to hold kitchen utensils with a magnetic knife holder which is perfect for my chef's knife--finally I have a decent place to put it when not in use. It also looks great too.

Modern luxury meets function

As a homeowner with a small kitchen I appreciate the function and stylish look of this organizer. It’s like a decorative piece but so helpful when I need my favorite utensils while cooking.

Magnet Issue

Definitely a cool product. I’m giving 3/5 because the utensil storage was great. When I went to use the magnetic side for my set of steak knives (the main reason I purchased it), my knife wasn’t catching (only at the very bottom of the blade; not enough to hold it in place). I checked my knives with a separate magnet and the blade caught fine. Customer service at Material was nice and responsive but didn’t offer to send a replacement, only issued a return label and stated their 4” blade works fine on it. So, the item was returned and I went in a different direction. I can’t help but think that the base I received was defective, and I would have happily tried another one. But the interest wasn’t there on Material’s end, unfortunately. So, cool utensil storage but pretty ineffective magnetic side on the one I received anyway.
