I have had this item for about 2 years, and like it very much. I use large cookbooks on the two bottom shelves to steady smaller items if I want. One is in the kitchen, one in the study with just books on it. It is a great way to stack and display over size books when short on room. I have put flowers, even an antique phone on one book. Get it really tight, though, or the middle joint will start or work loose with use. I have just ordered some more for our other home, because it is tight on space.
The graphite cookware stand was priced well below any other brand's cookware stand. It arrived in many pieces and was a bit challenging to put together. One person could do it, but two might be better. The instructions don't include a picture of the finished product, so looking at Overstock's picture might also help. The upper layers only fit pots and pans, but the lower layers are large enough for my 3.5 qt Le Creuset Braiser and 5 qt casserole. It seems sturdy enough to last for many years, and it looks nice. They recommend putting it next to a wall, to prevent someone from running into it, but I think it could also stand away from a wall without much chance of tipping over.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? I think the actual product is closer to dark gray, and the picture on the site seemed darker.

I live in a townhouse and we don't have a lot of overhead room for a pot rack. This was the perfect addition to our kitchen! It keeps my pots out and easy to reach, frees up cabinet space, and now I don't have to stack my non-stick pots. I am thrilled with this purchase and would recommend it to everyone!
I want a creative way to store my dishes as I have very little cabinet space. The footprint of this pot stand does not take up much space and the graduated shelves are perfect. I have my big pasta bowl on the bottom, then dinner plates, lunch plates, salad plates, and saucers sized going up the shelves. Bonus is my bright fiestaware looks great sitting on it. Lots of compliments. Easy to put together and sturdy to use.
We recently moved into our first house. The kitchen is small so there is very little storage for pots and pans. I spent several weeks looking at hanging pot stands, wall stands, and portable kitchen counters. I finally decided to try a cookware stand. There are several cookware stands available. I selected the Graphite Cookware stand because of the price and reviews from other people who purchased this product. My boyfriend put the cookware stand together. We we placed it in the corner of the kitchen. We like it. The pots and pans are easily accessible. The cookware stand is sturdy. I would recommend this product.
I was a little concerned that my largest Le Creuset oven (9 Qts) wouldn't fit on the bottom shelf. It fits, and so do all the others: Staub, Dansk, Chantal, etc. I've freed up one huge double door cabinet in my galley kitchen, thanks to this lovely pot stand. What an efficient and decorative space saver! I'm tempted to buy another for baking pans.

The cookware stand looks exactly as pictured. I use it for my LeCreuset pots and they hold up well. I do feel the need for rubber shelf liner on each shelf because the pots will slide a little too easily for me on them if moved. But it fits the corner I have it in and looks great. The top part of the stand does not fit flush into the corner of wall however. It was easy to put together. I did it by myself in about an hour for me. It's nice.
This item was easy to assemble and it a very good value for the price. We are using it for LeCruset cookware which makes them much more accessible for use. We would have rated this a 5 but it would be nice to have had 'feet' protectors included for use on wood flooring and the mid section connection is a bit odd, but extremely functional. Otherwise it is great!
I am really pleased my cookware stand. I ordered it to give me more cabinet storage but it also turned out to be an attractive accessory for my kitchen. It went together relatively easy; I did it myself without my husband's assistance. The graphite finish is neutral enough to go in almost any setting. I would reccomend the piece to anyone.
