Amazon Shoppers Are Using This Kitchen Rack to Free Up Their Counter Space
It’s as versatile as it is stylish.
The tricky thing about counter space is that there never seems to be quite enough it. Even the most organized kitchens can become so overrun with gadget storage and countertop appliances that when it comes time to actually cook, you’re not left with much room to work with.
That's why it's important to make the most of the counter space you do have, and a utility cart is a great way to do so. And according to shoppers who've added it to their own kitchens, the Odk Utility Kitchen Storage Rack on Amazon is one of those purchases that will leave you thinking, "I wish I bought this sooner."
While it's still somewhat under-the-radar— it currently has just a few hundred ratings—the space-saving rack has already made its way onto Amazon's best-sellers list in the category of baker's racks. Thanks to its sturdy shelves, four-level design, and 10 removable S-shaped hooks, the utility rack offers a reliable and customizable extension to your kitchen and food prep space.

"I live in an apartment with a small kitchen and fairly limited counter space,″ one reviewer said. "After years of just dealing with it, I finally thought to look into some sort of additional piece of furniture that didn't take up too much space but that we could move our microwave to and use for extra storage space. This fits the bill perfectly! It's literally the perfect size for the only open space in my kitchen so I lucked out there. This piece is simple, sturdy, and looks great. The best part is that I have so much more counter space now!"
Because its top shelf is built to support up to 66 pounds, you can store microwaves, blenders, and other small- to mid-sized kitchen appliances—and in turn, free up more precious counter space. Plenty of shoppers say they’ve turned the slightly rustic, farmhouse-inspired rack into DIY coffee carts by adding their coffee makers, mugs, and other beverage essentials to it. It also has a wire basket attached underneath one of the shelves that’ll come in handy for storing cooking utensils while keeping them in reach.
