The pot rack design looks very nice and FRAME is sturdy. However, the grids are very weak design and this could be helped off the center portion of grids had long screws and screw holes for them to go through to give support main large section of rack. It comes with 24 hooks, soninwas assuming it could hold them. I do not even have but half of the hooks and it is sagging. He grids come in two small end pieces and 1 large center piece. With just a few good quality pots this grid is sagging and could easily just fall out. There is nothing to hold Or support large center grid. Very disappointed. I plan to try to contact the companu who made this rack and ask them what am I supposed to do if I cannot put pots on this grid. So this product because of grid with no support will not get high ratings. It is ashame that such a sturdy fram comes ill designed with no supports and a weak grid.

The solution to the sagging center grid is this: Of the 24 hooks there are two unique ones which each end in a 90 degree angle. These hold up the center grid in the middle. Hook each one over the rack's outer frame on each side midway down the length and then rest the center grid on them. Now it is held up by the side bolts and these two center hooks. I hung an 18x15 roasting pan, a 12" chef pan, and a 12" frying pan off the center grid and it doesn't budge nor sag. It's very sturdy. I have the 48" rack and hang 6 frying pans, 3 sauce pans, 1 stock pot, 1 roaster and its rack, plus 7 lids, 19 pieces in all. It looks beautiful and works exactly like I had hoped. We have a vaulted kitchen ceiling so we first hung two pieces of heavy duty chain, two different lengths, to accommodate the rise. It balanced perfectly. When I add/remove a pan the rack sways slightly because of the chains but that doesn't bother me at all and I thought it would because I am sensitive to movement like that. I am more than pleased with Overstock.com and this product. It shipped immediately, arrived quickly, and was in excellent condition. I highly recommend it.
This is a large and heavy pot rack. 24 hooks! It's well constructed and made of quality materials. Even the pot hooks are polished and beefy. I didn't have ceiling beams in the correct location, so I needed to install a 4x4 cross beam to hang it. Although I like the design of the support structure, it forces you to hang it from 2 points. I'd prefer to be able to hang it from 4 points for stability. However, the sheer weight of this guy provides a great deal of stability on its own. All-in-all very happy. All I need now is more pots, lids, or utensils to use all 24 hooks. I have everything I own up there and still have more hooks left over!
This is a big pot rack. It actually looks a little big for my little kitchen, but it's a decent focal point. I have my stainless steel set hanging on it and about to hang my wife's new Rachel Ray on it. The only reason it didn't get a 5 star is it had a fair amount of blemishes and scratches on it out of the box.
Great pot rack with plenty of space for the avid home cook who has lots of pans. We wanted to purchase this in stainless steal, but ended up with the charcoal finish because of the price difference (and it matches our black concrete counterotps). We're very happy with the choice. The charcoal is a bit muted and it blends in well. The frame and hooks are very sturdy. The only problem we ran into was that the rack ended up hanging too low over our stove on the chains that it came with. We ended up skipping the chains altogether, hanging it straight off the vertical metal bars. It now sits at the perfect height for my tall husband (6'3"). PS: It comes with plenty of hooks -- over half of ours are still unused.
When my husband and I combined our households, the kitchen was bursting because we both like to spend time there. We needed a way to store and display our multiple pots and pans. This potrack takes them all, and looks great in our kitchen! And we were amazed when it arrived from Overstock.com the second day after we ordered it. We looked at the same rack on several different sites, and Overstock.com had the best price and provided excellent service.
This rack was for a church kitchen remodel as we were short on cabinets to hold pots and pans. I searched many retailers and this is certainly the best value for the money. The nickel finish is as close to stainless steel as possible and looks great. The overall length of 48" was hard to find at any price. Only problem is now we need to buy new pots and pans and get rid of our old ones so it looks nice. I am sure Overstock has some we can purchase at a good price.
