Rack ‘em Up Not Stack ‘em Up – Pot Racks

If you are like me, you can never find the right pot or pan you are looking for. You are looking for just the right pot or pan that will help make your recipe superb. When you do find it you have another problem. Where did my floor vanish to? I don’t mind telling you that I had enough! I had to find a solution. So I started doing some research.

I found the most wonderful invention. Weather you are a novice or gourmet cook this will work for you too. It’s called the pot rack. This holds your pots, pans and skillets out of the way from your cabinets and drawers. Never again will you have scratches from stacking one on top of another.

You can hang them from the ceiling or mount them on your walls. There are pot racks to compliment a traditional or modern decor. You can find a plethora of styles, shapes and designs to fit your personality and lifestyle. Some have lights that can create an ambience with illumination. While others can be practical and functional like a piece of kitchen furniture.

This wonderful lifesaver dates back to the 15th century. These were mainly found in poorer families where they had little or no kitchen space. They either hung them from hooks on walls or ceilings, while others used a tripod right on the dirt floor.

Some of the materials used to make these are chrome, wood, stainless steel, wrought iron and copper. Some of the many styles you could find are hanging, bar, wall, bookshelf and lighted. Most are easy to assemble without having special tools. They are also made to allow movement without displacing other pans.

Wall pot racks gives your kitchen that quaint open feeling. It helps keep the room organized without any clutter. Some styles are made in order to hold your Kitchen Tools, Cookbooks, Oils and herbs.

There are so many different pot racks that you’re sure to find one that fits your budget. They start at around $50.00 and can go into the thousands. I also found a How To book where they give you instructions so you can build your own.




You can find Wall Pot Racks at Home Interior Stores, Kitchen Stores, Catalogs and Online Stores.
