Bakers racks started life, as their name suggests, a simple, freestanding rack with shelves and hooks for storing different kitchen utensils and other culinary items. They are typically open in their design so that you can see at a glance what you have and pick the right utensil from where it's hanging on its hook. Some versions have a closed cabinet space for the lower half of the rack, but the upper half, extending to a height of five or six feet, is almost invariably open. If this space-optimizing solution seems like the right one for you, then take some measurements to find out how much linear wall space you have available or what your corner space can be. Take note of the style of your kitchen: a modern style will suggest a more contemporary bakers rack or perhaps even a professional version in stainless steel. When you've reviewed the situation and perhaps also thought a little about what you want the rack to do (shelves, hook space, cupboard space if appropriate), then check out the different offerings to select a quality product that is within your budget.
Much like the chameleon, baker's racks are the kitchen furniture piece that can blend into any kitchen environment. It used to be that the baker's racks were an integral part of the country kitchen. They were a place where the bread and pastries for the day were set out to cool, and the scent of those fresh cooked goodies would be the alarm to the nostrils that would tell the whole family that it was time to get ready for dinner. While baker's racks today can serve that same role, for those with a love of baking, there are also a number of other services they have started to take on in the kitchen.
If you cook any home meals, you know that they don't go from the oven to the plate. Depending on what you've cooked, it usually needs to sit for a little while before you can serve it, unless you want to serve molten food to your family and deal with a number of burned mouths. A baker's rack in your kitchen can give you a traditional spot to let these things cool before you take them to the table. With all the kitchen appliances that are available today to help you make things better, faster and prettier, you now need a place to put those appliances. Many baker's racks have cabinets and shelves that can close and hide those appliances, when they are not in use. If you have ever made a large holiday meal in your kitchen, you know there is never enough room to prepare all the things you need to get that meal on the table on time. But what if you had just a little more room to lay things out as you put the final touches on those dinner dishes? A baker's rack can offer that extra space you desperately need.
