Seville Classics Bakers Rack Kitchen Workstation
The Seville Classics bakers’ rack kitchen workstation with rubber wood top has a simple yet functional design. Every single component from the rubber wood top to the shelves and hooks have practical uses, a must for a bakers’ rack in a contemporary kitchen.
Even the choice of the zinc-plated steel has a real purpose particularly in ensuring that the rack will withstand frequent use.
Indeed, if you’re looking for a no-nonsense bakers’ rack, then the Seville Classics rack is a great choice! But don’t take our word for it.
Here are a few things that you will want to know about the rack before making your decision.
Features and Specifications
The Seville Classics bakers’ rack has little of the curlicues and whorls in its frame, in contrast with other bakers’ racks. But this actually works in its favour since it can blend well, so to speak, with the existing décor in your kitchen – or wherever you may want to place it. This can be placed in a home indoor or outdoor kitchen, in a home pantry, or in a restaurant’s storage area for spices and the like.
The rack’s simple form is underlined by its multipurpose function. The three shelves, which measure 14 x 36 inches, provide adequate space for a wide range of things. These can accommodate pots and pans, baking and cooking supplies, and even small kitchen appliances.
Since the wire shelves have gaps between the wires, many customers also purchase plastic shelf liners. These liners are great for keeping the wires as clean as possible – just remove the items, wipe or wash the shelf liners, and let them dry before replacing the items on the shelves. You don’t have to clean between the wires so often, thanks to the plastic liners.
The rack also has a single cantilever shelf measuring 8 x 36 inches. This can be used for storing and displaying several items, too, such as cookbooks, Instagram-worthy photos of dishes, and inspirational quotes.
The shelves are adjustable, too. This is a boon for people who cannot bend too well or reach up too high. You can set it at your desired height depending on the size of the items for storage or your physical capacity.
The rubber wood top is just as useful for chefs, bakers, and home cooks. You can use it as a work area for chopping fruits and vegetables, mixing baking ingredients, and preparing the food before presentation at the table. You will find that it’s so easy to clean, too – just wipe it clean with a dry or damp cloth, depending on the type of dirt on its surface.
By the way, the rubber wood top measures 14 x 36 inches with a thickness of 0.75 inch. You shouldn’t have any issues with its space and thickness, in terms of being able to work on its surface. You will also love the two sides of the cutting board – one is flat while the other is grooved.
The 36-inch hanging bar provides sufficient space for hanging several S-hooks. The rack itself comes with six pieces of thick S-hooks, which are strong and sturdy enough to hold several items. You may or may not add more S-hooks to the bar; S-hooks can be purchased separately, as is the case for the plastic shelf liners.
Aside from the rubber wood top, the entire rack is made from industrial strength UltraZinc-plated steel. Basically, the stainless steel has been treated with a zinc plating process, which provides added resistance against rust and corrosion. With proper maintenance, the rack should last for several years without showing signs of corrosion, especially around its joints and between the wires.
On a side note, the zinc plating process is more eco-friendly in comparison with the chrome plating process. This is because there are fewer chemicals used in the former but the benefits in rust and corrosion resistance are similar, if not the same.
The Seville Classics bakers’ rack requires assembly out of the box. But even with your basic do-it-yourself skills, you can easily assemble the pieces, especially as there are no tools required. Based on the photo alone, you will likely know which part goes where.
When assembled, the rack has the following dimensions:
- Height – 63 inches
- Width – 36 inches
- Depth – 14 inches
- Weight – 43 pounds
The rack can also be levelled, thanks to the levelling feet at its base. This is a great feature when your kitchen floor isn’t as level as you want it to be.
The Seville Classics bakers’ rack kitchen workstation with rubber wood top has the following advantages:
- Simple yet functional design suitable for all types of residential and commercial kitchens
- Sufficient spaces in the three regular shelves and one cantilever shelf
- Multipurpose use for the rubber wood counter, such as for food preparation and storage of items
- Rust and corrosion resistant zinc-plated stainless steel frame
- Relatively easy assembly
- S-hooks can be removed or added to the bar
But there are also disadvantages to it:
- No plastic shelf liners
- Unstable construction, according to a few customers
- Thinner wires than expected, especially for the shelves
The Seville Classics bakers’ rack kitchen workstation with rubber wood top is a good choice when you’re looking for an affordable, versatile and durable rack. You may find its simple design to be too simple, especially in comparison with other bakers’ racks with elaborate whorls. You will, nonetheless, find beauty in its simplicity even as you appreciate its functional design.
A few tips to keep in mind when it comes to using the rack:
- Avoid overloading the hooks since the rack will likely become too much like a Christmas tree, not to mention that the hooks can break.
- Place plastic liners on the shelves for fast and easy cleaning.
- Wipe down the rubber wood counterpart after each use. This will not only keep its surface clean but increase its longevity, too.
In the end, proper care and maintenance of a bakers’ rack will matter in its durability and usability than its price tag and elaborate design.
