Magnalite Dutch Oven with Rack..question about rack

erica | Apr 4, 2008 03:29 PM

I have used a version of this pot for more than 30 years. At least a few times a week. When poking around in a hidden corner of my kitchen today, I noticed the round, perforated rack that originally came with the pot. I figured that it might be time, after 30-years-plus, for me to learn more about this item.

You can see this rack if you click on the "alternate view" in the link below.

When placed in the round pot, the rack barely sits off the bottom, so it is not like any rack that I have used because it does not really elevate the food in the pot. So how and for what purpose, is this rack to be used?

What in the world am I missing here??

Many thanks!!
