But... It has a strange fitting mechanism, which ultimately meant I couldn't fit it where I intended it to go.
I had in mind a space of approx 31cm, so thought a 30cm rack would be ideal. But because of the fitting components (which are excellent in their own right), you need at least an extra 5cm (so 35cm in total). It would have been nice to have had this information beforehand, but I guess that's the risk of buying something without seeing it in the flesh.
As it happens, Mrs wife decided it should go somewhere else anyway. So whatever.
It took me about 10 minutes to fix it to the wall (and I'm very much an amateur at DIY). It doesn't come with instructions, so here's what I did, in case it helps anyone else:
It comes with 3 screws (and wall plugs) for fixing to the wall. the black 'ends' of the rack where the screws go slide out from the magnetic strip to let you fix to the wall. One end has space for 2 screws. The other end has a space in the middle for the screw to sit in (you don't need to remove this end when fixing to the wall).
Put a strip of masking tape over the back of the rack and mark the hole positions, then remove the masking tape and stick it on the wall in the place you want your knife rack to go. Use your markings to drill the holes and seat the wall plugs, then you can remove the masking tape.
For the black end that has 2 screw holes - slide it off the magnetic strip and attach it to the wall, screwing into the wall plugs.
Fix the third and final screw into the remaining wall plug. Screw it in most of the way, but leave a little sticking out as the end of the rack will rest on this.
Slide the rack onto the wall so that one end of the rack reconnects with the black end that is already attached to the wall. The other black end will slide over the 'middle' screw for support. The fixings will now be concealed, and the rack is ready for use.
I'm sure there are other (and better!) ways to do this, but it worked a treat for me.
Tools used - 4 cm wide masking tape (to use as a template), pencil (for punching the three holes in the masking tape), spirit level (for making sure the top of the masking tape was level on the wall), drill, screwdriver.
The rack has two thin magnetic bars, one running along the top and one along the bottom, to which you attach your knives and other metal kitchen items. Each of the bars is slightly recessed behind two metal strips (above and below it) so the knives don't actually touch the bars, but the force of the magnets is enough to keep them gripped tightly without requiring you to have superhuman strength to remove them.
The rack is made from plated steel, so I would caution against putting wet implements on it unless you want it to rust; then again, you should never put knives away wet anyway if you want to keep them rust-free as well. And being plated rather than solid stainless steel, care should be taken not to chip or damage the plating if you can help it as this is the surest way for rust to start.
So, other than the lack of a quick wall-fixing method, and the plated-steel construction, the rack has proved a worthwhile addition to my kitchen. And even if it does chip, it still has to be better than holding my knives is a damp, bacteria-invested block.
I am sure I remember reading other reviews saying:
"The only criticism I have for it is that there is no template to put it up."
I don't think anything I have brought has ever come with one, and why would you need one?
Took all of 5 minutes, with my Drill, Level and Pencil to put up....
Good Bit Of Kit!
