Can KalaMitica pots be attached to any metal surface?

KalaMitica pots contain a very strong neodymium magnet.
They can be attached to any ferrous metal surface. Grip and stability will depend on the composition and thickness of the surface itself.
KalaMitica metal boards are made of steel and are therefore ideal for our magnetic pots.

Can KalaMitica pots be attached to the fridge?

KalaMitica pots contain a very strong neodymium magnet.
They can be attached to the fridge if this has a ferrous metal surface. Grip and stability will depend on the composition and thickness of the surface itself.
KalaMitica metal plates are made of steel and are therefore ideal for our magnetic pots.

What materials are the pots made of?

KalaMitica pots are produced using ABS resin and they all have a strong neodymium magnet.
The magnet is not stuck on the pot but it is part of it since it is fused into the resin through a patented industrial process. All KalaMitica pots are 100% Made in Italy.

What materials are the plates made of?

KalaMitica plates are made of steel. Their different shapes and dimensions are the result of a production process which uses laser-cutting machines. Once the plates have been cut, they are painted with epoxides powders which make them more durable.

Are KalaMitica pots recyclable?

The ABS resin is recyclable and can be thrown away into the plastic bin.
However it is necessary to take away the magnet before doing that. You may need some pincers.

How much weight can then pots hold ?

The weight that every pot can hold is different and it depends on its dimension and fixing system. On the data sheet of each product  you can find the exact weight that can be held. Values refer to the product attached on a KalaMitica metal plate, which is 1,2 mm thick. Tests have been run on our metal plates.

Are KalaMitica metal boards magnetic as the pots?

No, KalaMitica plates are not magnetic. They are metal and are therefore ideal to attach our pots as well as any other magnet.

How can I fix KalaMItica boards?

KalaMitica boards are always packed with screws, wall plugs and screw covers suitable for standard walls. Important: walls made of other materials need other fixing tools (these are not provided by us). Plates can also be hung by using silicone. Once a plate has been hung, we suggest fixing it to the wall with some paper tape for at least 24 hours too.  Some plates can also be placed on a flat surface by using a wooden plinth. Sometimes this is already included in the packaging, otherwise it can be bought separately.

Can the boards be fixed only by hanging?

KalaMitica boards are always packed with screws, wall plugs and screw covers suitable for standard walls. Important: walls made of other materials need other fixing tools (these are not provided by us). Boards can also be hung by using silicone. Once a plate has been hung, we suggest fixing it to the wall with some paper tape for at least 24 hours too. Some plates can also be placed on a flat surface by using a wooden plinth. Sometimes this is already included in the packaging, otherwise it can be bought separately.

Can KalaMitica pots be used outdoors?

KalaMitica pots have been initially created for indoor use. However, they can also be used outdoors, but we cannot guarantee their perfect preservation. We suggest they should not be hit directly by the sunlight or rainfall.

How long does the magnet last?

KalaMitica pots contain a neodymium magnet which lasts forever.

Is it possible to put KalaMitica pots into a dishwasher?

No problems have been arisen up to now if pots are washed in a dishwasher. High temperatures could however damage the magnet and its grip. The pots listed here have a movable fixing system which makes it possible to separate the pot from the magnet. Thus, they can be put into a dishwasher.

Can KalaMitica pots store food?

Some pots (see here) have been initially thought up as food jars. They have a movable fixing system which makes it possible to separate the pot from the magnet, so that their contents never touch the magnet.

Do KalaMitica pot get ruined if they get wet?

No problems have been arisen up to now if pots get wet. However we suggest protecting them from rainfall. If you would like to use them as plant pots, please be sure that each plant has its own vase. Plants should not be pot into them directly. 

Is it possible to customise the sizes?

Pots cannot be customised. Plates can be produced in different sizes, shapes and colours. For more information about this service, please send an email to:

If you use this kind of pots to place your “magnetic” belongings, no problem will arise.
