Nice Rack!

I have a thing for racks...pot racks that is! In my next life, er, my future home I should say, I insist on having a pot rack in my kitchen. Nothing is more practical than this vertical storage unit, dangling all your precious All-Clad and Mauviel pots and pans like little soldiers waiting to be called upon to cook up your next feast!

Take some inspiration from what I currently have (drawers for storage) and perhaps update your current kitchen situation with a pot rack from several sources and different price ranges (check Home Depot, Ikea for more cost friendly options, Urban Archaeology if you can really splurge). Of course my dream pot rack costs a small fortune... but hey, if you don't love it, why bother?

My current ensemble of pots and pans....
