You will just have to get a photo album.
Can you at least scribble on it in crayon?
Darn it! It does not serve it’s prime purpose.
How about a candle?
Where else is a cat person supposed to put magnets and photos?
Get with the times, Rat. Modern fridges are wi-fi enabled and you can display pictures on the built-in monitor.
Um…. actually, magnets don’t stick to some stainless steel, including most refrigerators.
Some will hold strong rare-earth magnets, but not ordinary fridge ones.
All those plastic alphabet letters, and little sets of words that make poetry, will fall right off.
I found out when I googled stainless steel,
after dropping a teaspoon that my handy-dandy telescoping magnet refused to pick up.
Supposedly it’s the better kind that’s non-magnetic, too.
I DO miss being able to put magnets on my fridge. It limits the souvenirs I can buy when i go on vacation. LOL
Huge design flaw!
One of the sitcom families has a refrigerator with magnetic/chalkboard panels on the front, so you can write on it and stick magnets to it.
Refrigerator sales people need a magnetic personality. That’s the best I can come up with today.
They probably can’t afford it anyway
I use painter’s tape to hold the grandsons’ artwork on my stainless-steel-front fridge – it may not be pretty, but that’s not the point now is it? (I can use magnets on the side, but that’s for the boring coupons and bills.)
Hammer and nail?
Hot glue, if you want to go to that length. Semi-permanent and peels off easily.
The popularity of Stainless steel appliances seems to be waning,probably because they ,ironically, are harder to keep clean!
I don’t understand the popularity of stainless steel. It DOES stain, it scratches, shows every fingerprint and marking, plus needs to be POLISHED to look clean.
What I don’t understand is why ‘fridge’ is spelled with a ‘d’ and refrigerator is not.
It’s not about staining, it’s about not rusting without treating with paint or porcelain.
I guess mine if different stainless steel, magnets stick to it fine. (Actually I wish they didn’t, but don’t tell my wife that.)
I ain’t givin’ a plug nickel for that kind of stainless steel.
Well, despite all the arguments for or against, this is a cute comic!
All my kitchen appliances are black. I refuse to go stainless
That’s why I wanted one. No more crap on the fridge. But then I discovered you could get the next size up for the same $ if you stuck with white vinyl coated steel.
One of the reasons I did not get a stainless steel one. I miss the days when you could get them in pretty colors…not the 70’s colors, but like in the 50’s
As Gilda Radner famously used to say, “it’s always something!”
There are fridge magnets from Disneyland Paris, Scarborough, Blackpool, Cyprus and Amsterdam on our fridge.
Only the Paris and Scarborough ones are mine. The others are from relatives.
My kitchen appliances are in a light brown rusted stainless steel
I have a relatively old, enameled fridge, and magnets stick to it just fine, though I try to restrict their numbers!
So, I will agree with Pig today: shame on you, Fridge Salesman! —Trying to up-sell Rat and Pig into a more expensive yet deficient product!
Seriously, what’s the use of a fridge if you can’t put magnets on it?
Stuck to ours, we have
A) a small notepad, for shopping lists;
B) a neat holder with half-length pencils for use with A (a Tic Tacs container with a magnetic strip on the back)
C) a number of recipes that she-who-must-be-obeyed wants to keep somewhere to immediate hand
D) sundry “decorative” magnets, grandchildren for the amusement of
E) a couple of quirky magnets of sentimental value.
Mostly practical, useful items, appropriately placed. Being able to take a magnet is a primary function of a fridge door.
