Oh, I love these! I really, really love these. I found them at World Market in Lynnwood (for those of you in the area). Actually, I’ve seen them a bunch of places, but always at $2.99 each. And I’ve thought about buying them every time I’ve come across them, because my spice cabinet is absolutely out of control, and I literally grit my teeth sometimes when I have to remove fifteen spices just to get to one stuck way in the back. So when I saw them this week for $1.99 each, I bought 10. And then I went back yesterday for 24 more. Yes, I did. So I’ll probably have my head in the spice cabinet all day. Just in case you’re looking for me.
Twist the lid and open these four sprinkle holes ….
… or twist a little further and open this bigger hole.
I’m a little torn about the fact that you can see the spices through the lid. I really like that, but I know that spices should be kept in the dark. On the other hand, I go through my spices pretty quickly, so I’m not sure that much damage could happen before I’ve used it up. If it bothers me down the road, I’ll cut out round paper circles to fit into the lid. For now, I just like looking over and seeing all that spicy loveliness staring back at me.
I’ve usually seen these jars displayed on magnetic boards which the store is happy to sell you for $30 or more. But I didn’t want to buy a magnetic board, especially after it occurred to me that the side of my fridge–which is right there next to my stove–is kind of a giant magnetic board … and free.
These just make me so happy. But there’s more! 🙂
I also found these very fun gadgets — bendy spoons and forks. Well, that’s what I call them. What do you think?
Here they are in action:
Care for a homemade pickle?
Or maybe you’d rather have a jalapeno olive …
I am a sucker for gadgets. You too?
