I did quite a bit of comparison shopping before I decided on this purchase. I was amazed that while it seemed lightweight when I opened the package, it sturdily holds my set of clad cookware. You get a generous number of heavy duty pot hooks with the rack. EVERYONE that sees it remarks on how lovely it looks in my kitchen. Also it was quite easy to install. I was hanging my cookware within 20 minutes. I did, however, purchase longer, thicker ceiling hooks to reach my ceiling joists because I have a plaster ceiling.
