This is a nice item and a great, economical way to expand kitchen storage. The copper finish goes well with the original copper door handles and the cabinetry in my kitchen as well as a collection of old copper molds and cooking pieces. The copper would work well in a newer kitchen or an older one. Everyone who sees the rack compliments it and asks where I got it. It's the first potrack I've had and I am very pleased. I find it very useful.
