Most kitchens these days have a lot of appliances inside for all sorts of uses. It could be your electronic bread cutter, Panini maker, waffle maker, blender, food processor, can opener or any of a number of other gadgets that help make our cooking time a little bit easier. But you need somewhere to put all of these when you're not cooking. This is what one of the shelves on the Bakers rack can be used for. You can adjust it to the height of the highest appliance and stack the shelf with all of those appliances that are easy to find and see when you need them, but neatly put away for when you don't.
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.
If you are not a baker, you may think the idea of owning a bakers rack is a little bit of overkill. But just because you will not be filling the shelves with a number of loaves of bread and various fruit filled pies every day does not mean a bakers rack can't serve practical purposes in your home. You can have the old world charm of the furniture, but put it to work with more modern uses. Generally, bakers racks would belong in the kitchen, near where all the cooking is done. In today's kitchen that means you can use bakers racks as great places for excess storage. Some bakers racks have cabinets on the bottom that can be used as a way to de-clutter your kitchen counter tops. Think about all those things you have in the kitchen that you periodically use, but generally just take up space. They could be stored in the bottom of bakers racks. This is also a way to hide those modern appliances that can take away from your country kitchen appearance.
