Bought this to expand our kitchen space----it looks great and very professional. We had a little trouble trying to figure out how to hang it since the studs did not match up with our wall---however, our real estate agent suggested we bolt a piece of plywood to the wall (painted the color of the wall) and then attach the rack to the plywood. You'd never even notice the wood behind it. It seems very sturdy, with lots of pots and pans hanging from it. It is a great addition to our kitchen!!

Easy to put up, sturdy and looks just like the picture--very handsome and practical in our kitchen. We have 9 heavy All Clad pots & pans hanging from the hooks (11 hooks came with it, not 12 as advertized) and 2 large stock pots sitting on the top shelf. Great value compared to the high dollar pot racks we'd been pricing at gormet kitchen specialty stores. [The package was missing one washer needed for installation, however--not a big deal.]
This product worked great, the holes to mount it were 32 inches apart (16 on center studs, so you can mount it to studs due to the weight of the pans) and it worked out well. the directions looked like they were drawn by a 6 yr old though...probably could use better instructions, but the quality of the materials, the finish of the metal etc, all worked well, I'm happy w/ the purchase.

Looked great from the website. I was impressed when it arrived. It took 2 people to install but it was easy with the right tools. My wife wanted one for a while and I resisted. Stupid mistake. I should have bought it sooner. Our kitchen looks so much better.
We ordered two of these pot racks, and they arrived yesterday. The directions say to only mount in studs, but that wasn't really an option for us. We were putting them next to each other, offset in height a bit. But the studs were not usable there. We used SnapToggle (http://***) and they worked great. We have 12 pots and pans hanging from them and they're very secure. Love the look and they work great.

I bought this pot rack about 3 1/2 years ago for my house and loved it. When we relocated for a new job and I needed a pot rack to save some space in the kitchen and was pleased to find this item still available! I absolutely love it, it works in kitchens with low ceilings and allows for a bit more storage above on the "bookshelf" on the top of the grate that allows for more hanging than along the edges of the rack. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a pot rack for some additional storage and it looks great too!
The instructions say to only to screw into studs...I used heavy duty toggle bolts instead. I have a ten piece 2mm copper and iron set hanging from it. Holds ALOT of weight. Not suggesting anyone to do this unless they really know what they are doing though. Check your hardware weight limits and you can really hang this anywhere.
We needed additional storage space in our smallish kitchen. As I'd just received a new set of cookware, this sounded like a great solution. The item is sturdy, with a nice finish, plenty of hooks and relatively easy to install (hung directly on wall studs). The dimensions were exactly as described, delivery was quick - happy overall.
Great rack. Only downside is the depth from the wall could be a little greater to store stock pots, etc. above. Was able to get one up there. The rest of the shelf storage is used for pan lids. The wall brackets are actually adjustable so you can slide them wherever needed on the unit to get them lined up with wall studs - very nice feature. Sturdy, high quality. Have 3 cast iron pans and several non-stick pots/pans hanging from it.
Great product.......heavy duty and well designed! I placed the brackets underneath the rack....worked well for me. Also anchored it to the wall on a 1x12x36 board. Made it much easier to center since my wall studs did not line up with the brackets.
