Product details

The knife rack makes it easy for you to see and reach all your different knives when you cook.

Magnetic knife racks preserve the edges on your knives since they don’t scrape together in a drawer.

You can choose to mount it directly to the wall or with the help of KUNGSFORS suspension rail.

Using KUNGSFORS magnet rack you can store your kitchen utensils on the wall so that you have more space on kitchen countertop.

Can be used in high humidity areas.

Magnetic Knife RackKathyThis has turned out to be a very useful and convenient holder for my knives! I very much recommend this to organize your knives. I no longer have to take up drawer space to hold knives 🥳5
Excellent knife rackFayeThis is an excellent knife rack. The simplicity of the design makes it a stylish choice for any style. The stainless steel is easy to keep clean. The only issue I have is, until you fill the length about half full of knives etc. there is a tendency for the cover to release from the magnet when you remove a knife, not a deal breaker since most people will be filling the length at least half full.4
Wonderful quality and great priceFaithEasy to install. Easy to keep clean.5
Just what I neededRebeccaGot tired of the block of knives sitting in my counter. Bought this and love it on my wall just behind my stove.5
Not for an apartmentElizabethI had to return it. I don’t want holes in the walls of my kitchen because I’m in an apartment. I couldn’t figure out how to hang it otherwise. It was too heavy with what I came up with.2
MehJohnI broke/lost parts to mine while trying to install it, and the replacements were not available to order. I will just have to buy a new one next time I feel up to trying. The magnets are really strong, and it's much less forgiving than most IKEA products as far as having a suitable wall with wooden studs to anchor to. The magnetic pull will rip out the screws if they are not fastened as strongly as intended. It WILL hold knives if you have suitable wall for it, though.4
Great quality Magnetic stripPattyWorks very well and holds up to 11 of my knives! Easy to put together and deft only nice looking!5

Perfect for my small kitchenMarlaI love this magnetic knife holder. My kitchen is very small with limited drawer space so this is a perfect option. Thank you IKEA.5
perfect storage itemsLouiseI just remodeled a kitchen and added kunsfors rods and magnetic racks to the backsplash. They were easy to install and provide easy access to often used items.5
Great ProductHeidiGood quality. Looks nice and attractive in our kitchen while keeping knives out of reach of the children.5
Works and looks great. EasyBethWorks and looks great. Easy to install. Would buy again.5
Multipurpose for kitchen and beyond!!!LeahWe use this in our kitchen, and in our basement workshop area to hold miscellaneous tools. The magnet is super strong and we love it. Definitely an unsung hero of the IKEA product line.5
Not flush walll-mountRobertoI installed this on the side of a kitchen cabinet. Installtion is pretty simple even though the instructions are quite skimpy. However, the piece wont'be flush against the wall. Only one edge/side is flush against the cabinet wall while the other edge/side sits at an angle. Therefore, either the upper side or lower one has a gap against the wall. Perhaps I received a defective one.1
KUNGSFORS Magnetic knife rack, stainless steel

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 items – 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 magnetic 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.
