Features and Specifications
When assembled according to instructions, the baker’s rack has the following dimensions:
- Length – 38 inches
- Height – 74 inches
- Width 14.5 inches
- Weight – 97.9 Pounds
Be sure to measure the area where you intend to place the rack since it will take up floor space. But most homeowners attested that the rack fit in nicely even in relatively modest kitchens, dining rooms, or dens.
The placement largely depends on the main type of use for it. For example, a few buyers placed it in the dens as a wine bar while many used it in their kitchens for added storage.
Such versatility in use means that the baker’s rack will give value for the money over time. The uses include wine rack, display cabinet, and garden showpiece, among others.
The sturdy wood and metal components should hold up even after several years of use. The real wood used on the drawers has a tobacco oak finish, a beautiful piece of work especially with its simple yet stylish hardware. Even the sound of the wood when you knock on it has a solid feel to it!
The drawers provide ample space for small items, such as forks, spoons, and wine accessories. While these are equipped with locks, this is a minor matter. The rack shouldn’t be used to store valuable items, such as jewelry, anyway. These are also accented by simple yet sophisticated hardware, thus, adding to the rack’s attractive appearance.
But keep in mind that even solid wood requires proper care for longer use. A few tips in this regard:
- Wipe the drawers’ inside and top surfaces on a regular basis. This will remove the dust and dirt that accumulate even when you live in the suburbs.
- Apply a new stain on the wood when its finish appears to fade. This can be done once every 2 years. Use a stain that closely resembles the old finish although you can also experiment with other colors.
- Place a protective covering on the wood when wet items, such as glasses with ice, are placed on its surface. Coasters should do the trick.
With proper care, the wood part should be good for a decade or more.
The baker’s rack metal component also delivers on the qualities of strength, sturdiness and stability. The thick metal has a powder-coated black finish that gives the entire rack a high-polished look. The powder-coated treatment means that rust and corrosion can be kept at bay, especially with proper care.
While the metal components can be left as is after opening, a few users also recommended spraying it with an anti-rust treatment. The affordable product and easy application step will extend the life of the baker’s rack, especially when it’s used in an outdoor area.
The rack, for example, can be placed in the patio where people are most likely to enjoy food and wine after dinner or after work.
While the overall design of the baker’s rack appears to be too simple, this is actually a plus for many buyers. The straight grills at the back coupled with the S-shaped bar at the sides are simple yet stylish. This is a design that makes it so easy for the rack to blend well with any exciting décor.
As previously mentioned, the baker’s rack has three metal shelves – two above the drawers and one below the wine rack. These can be used for displaying and storing a wide range of items, which can be ornamental or functional or both, depending on the rack’s main use. For example, the shelves can hold alcohol-related accessories including wine glasses, ice buckets, and bottles of spirits.
Many buyers also used it for displaying and storing various odds and ends. The list includes small kitchen appliances, fruits and vegetables, and even crockpots.
Of course, the wine rack just below the drawer is a practical and beautiful addition to the baker’s rack. You can place as many as four wine bottles in it. Just be sure that the wines are best kept and served at room temperature.
Aside from the eye-catching design and practical spaces, the baker’s rack also has other things going for it. You can easily assemble the rack with a few basic tools and DIY skills. You can place it in a corner or in a place of honor, so to speak, too.
