I have a small kitchen. This is an under statement, I can stand in the middle of my kitchen and reach all my appliances just by rotating a quarter turn in any direction. Don't get me wrong, my kitchen is perfect for me. I have no wasted steps. Now that I'm older and my hips ache, I am truly grateful for my "compact" kitchen. Unfortunately, a "compct" kitchen means not a lot of storage. My husband bought this pot rack at Tai Pan trading company years ago. It took me a while to find one that was "beefy" enough to hold all my pots, pans, and skillets.
