How To Buy A Cookware Set

Recommended Manufacturers

There is a wide array of qualit pots and pans rack manufacturers in this arena, many not even tied to cookware sets.

So researching and looking these unfamiliar brand names may be a bit daunting.

You will find well known names like Cuisinart as well as some names that specialize in kitchen appliances that you haven’t heard of like Enclume.

While these brands share common features, each may also have distinct characteristics that would make you want to say ‘yes.’ like look, style, design, and heavy-duty feel.

It’s not too hard to mess up the actual functionality of pots and pans rack unless very cheap materials are used. That being said, it ends up being more design-based: spaciousness to hang pots, hooks included, ease of installation, and other similar criteria.

Here are our recommended BRAND NAMES of pots and pans racks.

Enclume Pots And Pans Racks

Enclume Logo

Enclume (official site) is known for simple and durable designs and fairly reasonable prices. They pride themselves, furthermore, on customer satisfaction. They have carved out an interesting niche in pot racks as well as other interesting accessories like fire log racks and other kitchen and home accessories.

One common knock is that their included directions are not as user-friendly as could be. What you get in return is simple and expandable designs as well as advances in easier and stronger installs (such as their integration with SnapToggle Toggler Anchors)

Old Dutch International Pots and Pans Racks

Old Dutch International Logo
Old Dutch (official site) is similar to Enclume, just a little less on each part of the scale. Doesn’t look or feel the same quality as Enclume. They do feel pretty heavy which is nice, we just don’t think it is the same quality (such as the graphite paint jobs). And you will pay almost the same price.

What you give up in quality and ease of installation, you get back in variety of colors and designs. Old Dutch definitely is strong on that point of the aesthetic part of the pots and pans racks for your home. Reputed good customer service too

Cuisinart Pots And Pans Racks

Cuisinart Logo
Cuisinart (official site) is a big name in home and kitchen appliances. If it goes in the kitchen, you can bet that Cuisinart probably has a product in that market. And they surprisingly offer good quality at reasonable prices. They have a well-deserved reputation for solid products and their pots and pans racks are no exception.

You do pay a bit more for Cuisinart. While the quality is good, you may question if it is worth the pricetag. Fortunately you can find Cuisinart pot racks on sale now and again on Amazon which makes it a pretty good deal.
