After reading hundreds of reviews and noting measurements I ordered and received in a few days the sturdiest, easiest to put together bakers rack I found on the internet. It took longer to pull the plastic off the shelves than to put it together. The shelves jus fold down and the corner hooks into a eye loop on the frame. It took 10 minutes total for my husband & I. While I would have liked a lighter shade of pewter finish, this is better than black for my décor and I can fit my microwave on either of 2 shelves. This rack also has 5 shelves, where most others have 4. Great price for the quality and ease of assembly.
The rack looks beautiful in my kitchen and the price is good. However, there is minor damage to the finish on one of the metal bars on the back. Since the damage is facing the wall and no one will ever see it, I plan to keep the product. I might use some touch up paint on the exposed metal. When I put the top shelf on, I had to put the "spokes" into the holes in front first. When I tried doing the hinge first, I was unable to get the spoke into the hole. One hinge went on easily, and the other I struggled with. I suppose leaving the top shelf off is the best way for the manufacturer to pack the rack. Otherwise the top shelf would rub against the decoration on the top while in the box. Even though I had a bit of a struggle with the top shelf, I still recommend this rack. It is very sturdy, looks really pretty, and matches my bronze kitchen fixtures.
