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.
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.
Bakers rack was easy to assemble and looks great in my space. It is well laid out and has plenty of storage for a smaller piece (able to fit a mirowave on the shelf if you take out the wine holders). The item came so quickly after I ordered it, a pleasant surprise! Only negative is the holes on the wood countertop did not align to allow for 1/2 of the small screws to go in. I got 2 in which is enough to hold the piece in place but not ideal for moving.
I got this about 2 days after I ordered it, all the pieces were included, no damage. probably one of the easiest items I have ever put together, about 30-45 min max by myself. if I had one thing to possibly even complain about, its the wine bottle holder is really centered underneath the wooden shelf, if it sat just a bit closer to front it would be nice, but I am being very critical over that! it looks great, wood is definitely not dark, probably a hair lighter color than in picture. I would buy one of these again due to ease of assembly and looks.
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.
