Rogar Half Dome Pot Rack With Grid Shelf
Exactly what I wanted
The rack is well made, sturdy and nice looking. The price was suitable for what you get. I have had many compliment on it. I wouldn't change a thing about it.

I love this rack, but it didn't quite fit the area it was plotted for. All the same, I really must remark about the great service I received from BBB. Everyone from the cashiers to the store manager was great in helping me through the return process. I will continue to shop here for all my homemaker needs.

Great rack that fits in a small space.
Needed a rack that would fit in a 24 inch space. This did the trick. Nice appearance and very handy. I hung 7 pots from it.

Just the right size. Not to big, not to small. Fit in the space allowed. Good looking. Didn't want chains.

Very nice for its category.
The metal is suitably heavy gauge, all fits well, black finish is good, grid is substantial enough (I expected chintzy). It was available only online, and I had an store-only coupon, but a salesperson at the store took my order, honored my coupon, placed the order and shipped it to me with no shipping charge. A level of customer service I hadn't expected. Even more surprising at Bed Bath and Beyond, it's made in the USA!
I give it five stars for its price point (I suppose there might be heavier-gauge products with much higher prices), although I'd deduct a quarter-star for the woosy little plastic anchors they include for mounting it.
Some installation tips:
From the outside, the assembly screws look like rivets. Nice. But they're very short, and it's hard to keep even just two curved pieces aligned and balanced in your lap while fastening them. Solution: loosely assemble it with twist ties or longer bolts, whatever you have handy. Then replace the temporary attachments, one by one.
I suppose the manufacturers know their stuff, but unless you're just hanging kitchen tools from it, I'd opt for heavier plastic anchors, or moly anchors. My wall is concrete/plaster/lathe, so I used concrete screws and they seem to be holding well. I suppose the most critical point is at the top, where the load exerts the most leverage.
As usual, measure two or three times, drill once. Probably simplest to center and mount at the top first, then mark the two lower holes. Which by the way are oddly spaced at 19-1/8" on center -- as if the centering math isn't confusing enough. (Your spacing may vary.)
You might also want to first confirm that your wall is vertical. Turns out mine isn't, causing the rack to tilt downward a few degrees. Doesn't seem to be a problem, and it's certainly not the rack's fault. Maybe someday I'll add a spacer behind it at the bottom.
Could use a few more hooks. My only other wish is that were a few inches wider, to better suit my 36" wide window, yet I wouldn't want it to extend much farther out than the current 11 inches.
