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.
Kitchen racks today are used more for decoration than for storage. Kitchen racks, or bakers racks, as they were once called many years ago are now used in many other rooms of the home. Some of these racks have wine racks built in and some have drawers that pull out. The original bakers rack was made for cooling baked goods and was used not only by commercial bakers but also by the women of the home since the seventeenth century. The concept of these racks was to have open shelving which was very important in speeding up the cooling process for all those great home baked pies and goodies.
On the top part of the bakers racks you have a number of options for uses. These are the shelves where the baked goods would set to cool. Now you can use this space as a display area. If you have some especially precious country kitchenware pieces you may want to show them off on the shelves so all your visitors can appreciate them. Or if you want to show off that you really can do some down home country cooking, you may want to use this space in the bakers racks to display your country cookbook collection or recipe holder. Some kitchens are a little tighter for space than others, and you may be thinking that you just can't fit bakers racks into your kitchen. If you have a spare corner, you can. There are corner bakers racks that will slip into that unused space and give you a lot of new and needed storage. You can even use bakers racks with a counter space in the middle as an extra area to prep for meals.
