How to choose the best racks for hanging pots and pans?
My mother always had a rack for hanging pots and pans. I loved it as a kid and appreciated it when it was my turn to do the dishes. It is so easy to put the pots and pans away when you hang them.
I always thought that they added to the kitchens decor. My mother made her pot rack out of an old metal wagon wheel. She added S hooks for the pans to hang on. She painted it black and hung it from the ceiling with metal chain. I always liked that pot rack.
Today I have a hanging pot rack in my kitchen. It’s not handmade like my mothers, but it does the job.
Some people don’t like to use racks for hanging their pots and pans because they say they get dusty, well, that’s true. But they get dusty sitting in a cabinet too. I always rinse my pots before I use them.
I think what I like most of all is the fact that I can find what I need quickly without having to rummage around in the pot cabinet looking for the right size. So I think racks for hanging pots and pans is perfect. Plus, it frees up space in your cabinets.
Not all my pans are hanging because some are just too big. But I have enough of them hanging that keeping the big ones in the cabinet is no big deal.
If you have an island in your kitchen, then the ceiling racks are perfect for you. They hang freely in the middle of your kitchen with hooks all the way around, which is nice.
I have to be careful where I hang the bigger pans because when I cook I bump my head on them. My cooktop is in my island. But it’s not really a big deal, I just make sure to hang them on the ends. Amazon has a great selection of HANGING racks for your pots and pans.
If you are limited on space and have no island or are unable to hang a rack from the ceiling, then a wall rack for your pots and pans is the best way to go. I love how these are all different, but save you space at the same time.
Some have book shelves built in, so you get double the space. Hang your pots and pans on the rack, and store your cookbooks on it or whatever you need space for that will take up valuable counter space. For me it would be cookbooks. Amazon has several of these to choose from.

Have fun with it and enjoy having your pots and pans close and conveniently located when you need them.
