I hesitated a little bit at paying almost $200 for this piece when there were other baker's racks going for $100 on Overstock, but the description that it was completely made from iron and also already in one piece, very little assembly required (everything was already hinged together) is what tipped the scales for me. It also shipped for a few dollars and got to my home in less than 3 days from ordering it! THe box was VERY heavy but once I opened it up it took less than 5 minutes to get it standing and ready. However be warned that you do have to attach the very top shelf with some screws -- not hard at all -- but at first I thought the screws weren't included; but they are taped to the baker's rack itself in a very small black plastic bag that I couldn't see at first. This little plastic bag of screws should be a brighter color! Otherwise I love it and it handles my extremely heavy Le Crueset pots and pans, cookbooks and microwave really well. I can even hang hooks on the side to also hang frying pans off the sides. Not too wide but not too narrow either. Awesome purchase!
