My kitchen is pretty small (galley style with little counter space) so I have been looking for a rack that would give me a space to store and use small appliances. This has worked out great! I have been able to put my toaster/convection oven, coffee maker, air fryer, and blender on it in a way that allows them to be used regularly. The lower shelves work well for storing extra baking pans and mixing bowls, as well as a larger rice cooker that isn't used as frequently. It was pretty simple to assemble; very similar to Ikea type furniture. It was packaged well and came with foam between the pieces to keep them from getting scratched/broken during shipping.
