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.
Some racks are even large enough to hold a microwave, convection oven or toaster oven on the tabletop. Alternately, you can keep your mixer and bowls there, ready to go at a moment's notice should you get the pie making bug. If you love baker's racks, you may also want to get one for your patio. Baker's racks add the storage you need there, too. They are terrific as a gardening stand, allowing you to pot new plants with ease. With some hooks you can hang your gardening tools along the edge of the rack and use the tabletop to do your planting. Empty pots can go up above and you can place potting soil and fertilizer down below. Or you can use the baker's rack as a planter, putting different sized pots on the various racks. This works really well for a corner baker's rack, which will fit nicely in a small corner of your deck or patio, giving you maximum space for plants, herbs or flowers in a minimal space.
Most bakers racks are just wide enough to occupy an optimum space without being awkward. Typically bakers racks measure about 3 feet in width, but the height is left to the manufacturer and the buyer. Where storage is the main criteria, bakers racks are equipped with drawers and compartments or even cabinets tailor made to house the numerous kitchenware that would otherwise clutter up a decent kitchen. Some bakers racks can be wall mounted, but such furniture pieces are rare because people seem to prefer a sturdier version. An addition of shelves into a bakers rack is another great way to create extra space for storing dinner plates or baking trays and other baking accessories.
