It’S Science! Chemistry Magnets for the Kitchen

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  November 26, 2009

If you’re curious about what’s really kicking in your holiday food this season, these chemical magnets will shed a little light on the science behind the flavor (and decorate your fridge). Love garlic? Thank the allicin–and celebrate it by plastering it to a metal surface.

You can feed people and educate them at the same time. That’s the most fun (and nutritious) way of bringing new geeks into the fold.

This set of four celebrates the spicier elements in your kitchen: allicin (garlic), piperine (pepper), oleocanthal (olive oil), and my favorite, capsaicin (peppers), but Etsy crafter anandi’s store is packed with all sorts of items that celebrate the best in food… and in holiday cheer, too. This set of four magnets is available for $12. Actual food sold separately.
