This is almost identical to one inherited from my Mum, which has served us for around 60 years! Only difference is the curly feet, and barriers on the short sides too AND non stick coating. The old one was due for retirement, but PLEASE make a larger size too so I can retire my equally old one before it dies.

As with some other reviewers I wish I had read all the reviews before I bought two of these. Yes, hooks on the base are a problem for storage, can only get one half of a sandwich cake on because of the edges and only a small number of buns and small cakes. I think they've been designed for looks not practicality.

good but too small”
by Mrs Kirk
as other reviewers have said (which I wish I had read before I bought) this is a great item but just too small. Its ok for cupcakes but you can't fit two sponge cakes on there at the same time which means I now need another rack for cakes. The sides aren't really helpful as they limit what you can get on there.

Should have read the measurements - but it really is too small. Plus edge rails limit how many small cakes, scones, biscuits fit on.

Perfect for cookies and cupcakes”
Great design, well made and sturdy; non-stick coating is good and makes it easy to wipe clean

Good idea; bad design.”
This can be a very useful tray, but BEWARE. I bought 4 of them. The 'hook' design of the feet means that, if you attempt to store them next to each other (horizontal or vertical), the feet on either side catch in the wire mesh and are almost impossible to separate. Also, because the mesh is NOT welded/fixed where it crosses, the wires easily bend out of shape when you try to separate them. This introduces an element of "danger" to the separation! On one of them, the trapped side fell off far too easily. So, potentially an OK product --- as long as you keep each one in a different cupboard!!

the wrong way”
by Mrs P Anne P Miller
It's too small, it's badly designed and a lesson in how not to weld wirework. There are many sharp edges and the item arrived, broken in four pieces. What is the purpose of the edge rails, please ? An expensive purchasing mistake !

I too think this is a very sturdy little cooling rack, however I also agree that I would have preferred a bigger size.

The review above says everything I was going to say. It's a great little cooling rack - much better than the round one with folding base which I bought from Lakeland a few years ago. It's very sturdy, small enough for easy storage, but a larger size would be great.

Bought this item and love it. It is sturdy and the sides are a godsend when moving cooling items round my very small kitchen. A slightly larger version would also be extremely handy.
