Cooling racks are an important tool in a baker’s kitchen because they allow you to cool down baked goods quickly when the come out of the oven. Wire cooling racks with a grid pattern are my go-to style of cooling rack because they offer support for everything from big cakes to small cookies as they cool. The only problem with sheet-style cooling racks is that they take up a lot of counter space and when you’re making multiple batches of cookies (or have a small kitchen) that loss of counter space can be a real problem. This is where a gadget like the Baker’s 4-Tier Cooling Rack from Linden Sweden. This four tiered rack allows you to stack your sheet pans and cooling racks vertically, quadrupling your cooling space and leaving you with a wide open counter to work on.
The rack is made from powder-coated steel and it is both strong and durable. Each of the racks is more than strong enough to handle a full-sized pizza stone, so handling light aluminum cookie sheets and baking trays is no problem. The racks also adjust to different heights to accommodate pans of different sizes. In addition to saving you counter space, this rack folds up flat (stands 13 inches high when open, and folds flat to 22 x10 x 1 inch) when it is not in use, so it doesn’t take up much cabinet space, either.
