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.
My Wife and I used the rack to hold a few of our appliances on the lower shelves because we could not fit them in our smaller kitchen. We did not install the wine rack so that we could have more room for some of the larger appliances like crock pot, food processor, etc. The rack was extremely easy to put together and looks wonderful. It matches our cabinets. We fully recommend this item.
Very usefull piece, but had to add extra leg length (5") as it seemed a bit too short. I would recommend instead of metal shelves (rims are spaced too far each other, things fall through) pur wooden selves. It seems a bit heavy looking, so if i were a designer for such a tiny piece Id make metal parts a bit thinner.
This is a very sturdy item. We use it every night as our cutting station. There are tons of ways to hang and place items on piece. I would have paid even more for the product. The only drawback is that the wood is much redder in person than in picture.
Received the bakers rack quickly and put it together myself. It looks awesome in my kitchen. I love the curved design. I put onions in the metal baskets and it looks great. Have my ceramic canister set on the wooden shelf. It is just gorgeous and frees up my counters. Love it.
This unit is as beautiful as it looks in the picture. Very well constructed. We recommend you put all the parts together as instructed but do not tighten the screws until it's all put together. Great price for what you get. Amazon sell it for more & other co's sell it higher yet.
