So I built a studio apartment in my parents' basement, and I needed a surface for my cappuccino maker: something sturdy, attractive, and multi-purpose. Baker's racks seemed to be the thing, so I did a lot of searching and researching reviews. The only thing I didn't like about this one was the wine rack - I might collect wine someday, but today is not that day. When one reviewer said the item could be assembled without the wine rack, I knew this was the one I wanted! It was so simple to put together, came with all the pieces in good shape and packed well. Installed, it is attractive and functional with plenty of room for my Cuisinart EM-100 and antique hand grinder. The hooks and removable top shelves hold my cups, and the wire shelves below double as structural support and storage space. Everyone who visits my space comments on how good it looks. Although the "wood" shelf is really particle board, it has withstood water and hot steam like a champ! If you're considering buying this, stop considering and buy it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Close - the shelf is a little redder. Note that it's particle board with a wood grain
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Totally sturdy and attractive
my hubbie put it together with no problem,,we chose to leave the wine rack off,,because i needed more space for my food processor and juicer and they both fit well, on the bottom shelf ,thanks
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? excellent
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
This item was purchased for our Florida winter home. This was my 1st time ordering from Overstock and I was extremely pleased. This bakers rack was easy to assemble and all parts were there. The quality and overall appearance were excellent. I am very pleased with my purchase.
Bakers rack was easy to assemble and looks great in my space. It is well laid out and has plenty of storage for a smaller piece (able to fit a mirowave on the shelf if you take out the wine holders). The item came so quickly after I ordered it, a pleasant surprise! Only negative is the holes on the wood countertop did not align to allow for 1/2 of the small screws to go in. I got 2 in which is enough to hold the piece in place but not ideal for moving.
We received the baker's rack in great time from overstock. One of the legs is shorter than the others and one of the holes for the screws was not drilled into the metal. We were able to fix the issues ourselves rather than take the rack apart (we were almost done with the assembly) and ship it back to overstock for another. It looks great in our kitchen and gave us the needed storage.
