Overhead pot rack -- a good idea?

Peter | Apr 23, 2007 12:01 PM


I'm in the middle of planning a kitchen renovation and while I have a lot of raw space, the layout is a bit of a challenge.

An overhead pot rack where I hang the majority of my commonly used pots and pans seems like it could be a useful addition -- and nice to look at as well -- but I've never had one so I'm seeking opinions on them.

Off the top of my head, they seem like a bad idea...

-- Items hung up a bit damp drip on your head or whatever's below.

-- Shorter visiting cooks (or children I might have some day) can't reach

-- Infrequently used items get dusty, or even worse, a little greasy if they're over the range and the hood isn't 100% efficient.

Anyone out there have one? How is it? Love it? Hate it? Advice on where to locate it on the floorplan?

Thanks in advance.
