This shelf looks nice, has a very sleek and modern design, and was easy to put together and install. The biggest disappointment for me was the fact that the hooks protrude about an inch above the shelf surface, so it is hard to fit any but my smallest size pot on the top. For the price and the look this shelf works great, but if you're looking to put large pots on the top, look elsewhere.
The substantial quality of the wood and metal components give this rack a high end look. It has a clean, simple style that is very pleasing to the eye. It was easy to put together. I moved furniture around in the kitchen and it lost it's place on the wall so I never installed it.. Therefore, I don't know if it will work as well as it looks. It certainly looks and feels as if it won't disappoint I keep looking for another use for it. I think that it would look and work well in a craft room, bedroom or garage depending on what you need to store and/or hang.
