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

- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? excellent

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.
I wanted to get rid of the old cabinets in my kitchen and replace them with freestanding items. The price was good and it arrived quickly. It's made well and was easy to put together. I love this so much I'm going to order the one with the baskets and also the Upton corner shelving.
I am very happy with this rack. It is looks exactly like the picture and fits perfectly in my small apartment dining area. One of the wave bars to the wine rack was defective, but I called the number provided, and it came so quickly I thought when the package arrived, it was something else. You can't beat this for the price. It's sturdy and looks more expensive than it cost. If you need something with height this is not the rack for you. If not, for a small area its perfect and not so overwhelming it will make your room look crowded. It's definitely a standout statement piece.
I've had this item for several months now, and still love it. It just sits there all gorgeous, holding whatever I need it to hold, and doing a great job. My last apartment it held the microwave, not it's holding the toaster oven. I'm using the small top shelves & hooks for specialty glasses & cups, wine underneath, et cetera. Well made & designed. Enjoy!
