I got this thing and was immediately surprised by the quality. It's heavy, stylish stainless. I have a pretty small kitchen, but I love to cook and have altogether too much cookware so I definitely needed the storage. This product was a great addition to my kitchen. One major thing I realized right away that no other reviews pointed out is that with just a phillips screwdriver, you can flip the hooks for the wire rack nested in the shelf and hang it so the center brace is above the rack. You'll fit a lot more pans that way if you have the ceiling clearance to pull it off. The only drawbacks are the crap galvanized mounting hardware and simple plastic drywall anchors, coupled with the odd mounting hole spacing. It would be 100% impossible to drive more than one of the three mounting screws into studs, not that the 1 1/4" wood screws they give you would even bite into a stud. I have bonded copper/stainless pans, and I certainly wouldn't trust this rack mounted with the provided hardware. I will get stainless hardware some day since the galvanized against the stainless will cause pitting, but in the meantime, I flipped the hooks so the center brace was on top, drove that into a stud with a 2 1/2" drywall screw, and rather than use the junk drywall anchors they gave me, threw in some butterfly bolts for the two mounting holes on the actual shelf.
