MY SPICE JOURNEY
Hi! I'm Beth, the founder of Gneiss Spice. My spice journey started in 2009; I was living in a tiny Brooklyn apartment, afraid to open my spice "cabinet" for fear of the avalanche of unorganized spices that would come crashing out. I barely seasoned our food—what spices were in there and how old were they? After searching for solutions, I stumbled on some magnetic spice tins. I loved the idea of keeping spices in sight and easily accessible—but reviews said the tins were not airtight, were hard to open, and had to be replaced often. Plus, I was looking to add style to my kitchen!
When what I wanted didn't exist, Gneiss Spice was born! We turn your cluttered spices into a functional work of art. Magnetic jars keep spices at arm's reach, making cooking fun and convenient; no more searching through cabinets or buying duplicate spices. Our reusable glass jars reduce kitchen waste by eliminating single-use plastic spice containers. Purchase empty jars, or personalize a set from over 200 certified organic spices. When jars are empty, take your jars to your local natural bulk food store to refill, or purchase our "perfect-fit" organic spice refills, shipped in compostable packaging.
What started as a DIY project for my own kitchen is now the only full service zero waste spice company!
