I personally have six of them. Yes, I said it. I have six. When I do my massive holiday cookie baking, these are essential. But not just for the holidays! These sturdy racks are perfect for all kinds of baked goods, plus they are strong enough to support stoneware or bakeware. They will keep your countertops safe from hot dishes.
Here are the details:
- 10” x 18”.
- Small, nonstick grid prevents food from falling.
- Durable, heavy-gauge steel.
- Rubber feet protect counters.
- Hand wash.
Plus, you can order them as a set too!
Do you really need a cooling rack for baked goods? The short answer: yes. Because the raised level of the rack combined with the open grid allows air to circulate, cooling your goodies quickly and evenly. No more soggy bottoms!
Are you wondering what else I use them for when I’m not baking massive amounts of cookies? I’m glad you asked!
My mother shared with me with brilliant hack of placing one in my freezer to offer another storage shelf. I also use them to rinse my produce when it’s arrived from the store before storing. I place the rack right over my sink and use the host attachment to rinse the vegetables. When we entertain, I use them under my tablecloths to create height for serving.
Do you ever make peanut butter cookies? Here’s my favorite hack for that: instead of using a fork to make the cross-hatch pattern after you’ve portioned your cookies onto a cookie sheet, use the rack to make the crosshatches all at one time. Genius!
But there’s more! Use it to chop avocados for guacamole, eggs or egg salad and potatoes for potato salad! How? Place your produce or eggs on a cutting board and press the rack over them. The contents will come right through the grid into chopped pieces.
On a side note, this rack is NOT oven safe so you won’t want to use it for roasting vegetables or making bacon, BUT you can use this Baking Rack for those things (and as a cooling rack too!). See? We’ve got you covered!
