This isn't very sturdy and the metal rings don't do much to stabilize it--nor do they fit in the frame very well. However, the the compact size is handy--I keep mine on top of the refrigerator next to the stove. Great for pans. The fit is a little tight on the two center rings and I have to wiggle a larger pot in and out. Nor is it much good for storing domed lids. But it does organize my most frequently used pots and pans nicely at a fraction of the size and price of a full pot rack.
