Kungsfors Hanging PotVerified ReviewerGreat for growing herbs. Versatile product5
Bought as a herb planterVerified ReviewerGood quality, sturdy and looks good . Brushed so not going to show water marks or fingerprints as being used in kitchen. Rail that holds the container comes in 40cm lengths but can be joined - I discovered5

It’s a containerVerified ReviewerIt’s a container to be used with the kungsfors system. It’s good. I’ve got a plant in mine. :)4
Utensil and herb storageVerified ReviewerUsing one to hold awkward cooking utensils (wooden spoons etc.) and another for potted herbs (e.g. coriander). Both do the job very well, and having live greenery in the kitchen makes it look more alive!4
Perfect surface tidierVerified ReviewerI use one on my desk for pens etc and another in my kitchen for small utensils and scissors5
Useful storage. But Check it will fit.Verified ReviewerI have a problem with this. A couple of years ago lkea made an almost identical set of products... And with these new ones they have changed their dimensions - so they don't work together unless you are prepared to force the hook open so you can hang it from the orriginal metal bars.3
Great extra storageVerified ReviewerBought four of these to hang from a kitchen trolley for a little bit of extra storage...perfect for garlic cloves, ginger, mini bits-n-bobs!5
FantasticVerified ReviewerI have waited a long time to see this!5
Utensil HolderVerified ReviewerGood quality, good design, holds a number of items. Have used it in my kitchen.5

Smart storage provides flow in the kitchen

You've also probably experienced this: coming home tired after a long day, knowing that both you and the rest of the family need food as soon as possible. But there are tricks that help make cooking easier. With our wall-mounted kitchen storage series KUNGSFORS, utensils, spices and recipes have their given places on the wall instead of being spread out on the kitchen worktop. With a bit of pioneering we managed to make the wall brackets nicely hidden, too.

When starting to work with KUNGSFORS, we turned to chef and cookbook writer Maximilian Lundin for inspiration. "There are a lot of practical things to be learned from a restaurant kitchen,” says Maximilian. “Like having utensils and ingredients easily accessible so that you have a good flow when cooking, and have plenty of space on the kitchen worktop."

Furnish the kitchen wall

With the help of Maximilian, our product development team created shelves, grids and rails that you either mount directly to the wall or on special suspension rails where you easily complete and move things around without having to drill new holes in the wall. The rails have room for hooks meant for all the utensils, and also room for the special shelf where you can place a tablet with the dinner recipe at eye's level.

Simplifies cooking

The series is made up of many different products and the project required both time and patience from all involved. The team engineer David Zeberg looks back on the work. "One of the challenges was to make the wall brackets of the rails hidden. But I love projects where we do something pioneering and have to test boundaries before finding the solution." For the chef Maximillian, who is passionate about good food, it was a whole new experience to be involved in influencing people's kitchens ─ the environment where food is cooked. "The positive thing was that everyone in the team was so ambitious about ensuring that KUNGSFORS would help to simplify cooking", says Maximillian.


What is stainless steel?

Stainless steel is found in everything from building structures and cars to sinks and knives. It’s easy to see why it has so many uses. Stainless steel is hard and durable and has good resistance to corrosion – namely rust. It generally has a low nickel content, and for IKEA products we mainly use stainless steel that’s nickel-free. Like many other metals, it can be recycled again and again to become new, hardwearing things – without losing its valuable properties.

Function solution

More space and better flow in the kitchen

When spoons, spices and recipes have their given and visible place on the wall, you get more space and better flow when you cook. With the KUNGSFORS series, it's easy to create a personal combination and store everything so that items are easily accessible and you get a good overview in the kitchen, just like professional cooks. Place the pans on open shelves, the knives on magnet racks and utensils on hooks. Then you have everything close at hand and lots of space to work!

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

The most important thing when I designed the KUNGSFORS series was for it to spread the joy of cooking. The series helps you to have kitchen utensils, spices and ingredients visible, which I think makes the kitchen look nice ‒ while it encourages the appetite and desire to cook. I also wanted it to help make it simpler to keep things in order and make cooking easier. The parts can be combined in any way, so they fit both large and small kitchens ‒ and people's different needs.
