Baker'S Rack Directions

Baker's racks are made of many different materials, from solid oak and other woods to wrought iron and pipes and wire. Baker's racks got their name from their original function: to be used in bakeries to allow bread loaves and pastries to cool after baking. They were designed originally for function; they remain useful because of their functional design, to use in kitchens, pantries, offices and just about anywhere else in the home. The pipe and wire baker's rack design is typically the easiest to find and is also the most affordable. Does this Spark an idea?


1. Remove all of the materials and shelves from the packaging and group all of the parts --- shelves, posts with threaded joiners, posts with foot levelers and plastic sleeves. Separating the parts will help you know if all of the parts you need are there. Wire baker's racks are available in many different sizes, so these parts and their counts will vary by size.

2. Screw the posts together --- one post with a threaded joiner to a post with a foot leveler.

3. Decide how high you would like the bottom shelf and snap a plastic sleeve onto the foot end of the post in that spot on all four assembled posts. With the help of another person, slide the first shelf over the top of the four posts until it sits snugly over the plastic sleeves. Push down on the shelf to lock the shelf into position.

4. Locate the positions of the remaining shelves with the plastic anchors, one shelf at a time. Lock each shelf into place as you go.

5. Position the assembled baker's rack where it will be used and adjust the feet to level the baker's rack.
