I just received one and love it. I'm using it on my deck as a plant stand for a small assortment of herbs and it works great. The shelves even fold up to fit larger plants on the lower shelves. No assembly required and very easy to fold up. Just be careful when you open the package because some of the screws were loose and came undone in the packing.
One of my most successful purchases. I've had my 1st one for six months or more. My biggest problem is trying to decide whether to keep it in the kitchen where it holds cook books and such, move it to the patio to hold plants, or place it in the mud room to catch boots, shoes, garden tools, etc. So now I'm buying a 2nd one. And will likely buy a 3rd. I love that it folds flat in case I ever need to store it, yet is incredibly sturdy, well built, and attractive enough to look great next to the french doors in my kitchen/great room.
This iron folding bakers rack was exactly what I needed to fit into a narrow spot in my tiny NYC kitchen. It looks lovely indoors with a very simple but classy design. Set up could not be easier!!! It took 3 seconds as the shelves all fold into each other so you could store it inside (and it would be less than 1" wide!) if you're using it outside for occasions. I'm able to store a TON of stuff on this including my standing mixer, all of the attachments, at least 18 bottles of wine, cutting boards, cookbooks, blender, coffee maker & food processor! It is an awesome addition to my kitchen. One recommendation, if you're not going to put something heavy on the bottom shelf, I could see it feeling a little shaky. Make sure you have some weight at the bottom & it will be nice and sturdy.
I purchased this rack about two years ago to house orchids on a covered porch. I do not recommend it's use outside. The frame has held up fine; however, the shelves have totally rusted through and I'm looking to replace the rack. It is not weatherproof, long-term.
The Patio Bakers Rack is exactly as the picture showed. It looks great in my patio and helped get all my orchid plants in one location and even had room for other plants previously scattered around the patio. Delivery was punctual even though we were under a hurricane warning the day of delivery. I am very happy with the selection.
This is very cute, but I think it's overpriced. One of the screws fell out in transit and doesn't seem to screw back in all the way. I'll live with it but for the price, the quality should be better. I think you can find a better deal.
Just received the rack and am thrilled with it. It's a sturdy, quality piece and it looks great. I'm using it outside in our screened in porch as a plant stand. I love the way the shelves fold making this a very versatile rack. One of the screws did come loose as I was unpacking but it wasn't a problem to screw it back on.
This rack is being used to display orchids on an exposed patio area. It's very attractive and durable enough. It arrived with one of the shelves detached from it;'s hinge. A couple of screws had come loose in shipping, but they were found in the box and easily repaired. This is not an item of great workmanship, but, it's a great value for the price. I can recommend this for appropriate use, but I wouldn't use it to display a collection of Ming Dynasty urns.
I really love the Baker's rack - all I had to do was open the box and remove it , take off the bubble wrap and unfold it and it was ready to go out on my deck!! I love it!! Another neat thing is it matches the corner planters rack that I had ordered previous to this and it matches perfectly. The quality of the steel is fantastic and it looks a lot more expensive than what I paid for it. Keep the bargains coming.
Description said rust resistant so I bought this to use on an outdoor patio. As I was taking it out of the box, I noticed quite a bit of rusting already, before I even used it. Don't think it will last a month outside without having to repaint. Not for outdoor use.
I have an indoor, screen-roofed, atrium where I plant flowers and herbs. Now that I have most of the herb pots on this rack, there is much more usable space in the atrium and it is a lot more welcoming with a cast aluminum garden bench, side tables and chaise along with the original cast aluminum bistro table and chairs. Because of reading a previous customer's review of the rack, I sprayed lacquer over the top and bottom of the shelves to delay rust from forming. So far (about 5 months) they look fine. The rack folds and moves easily. This was very helpful for taking the rack out of the summer sun and rain and placing it in the garage while I am not in Florida during the summer. I am very happy with the purchase and receive many compliments on it.
