    It's to keep the appliances & other things off the countertops & tables when not in use. :wink:

    I personally like the metal wire chrome ones you find in commercial kitchens. After having many 'heavy duty' plastic ones bow in the middle i went with metal...thay can hold a lot per shelf and you can add wheels to make them movable so they are a breeze to clean under if something spills.

    Agree with @oddduck . No dust collecting on the shelves either.

    The heaviest things that would go on there are the mixers & food processor, & they would go on the bottom shelf, where it would get total support from the concrete floor. :wink:

    We keep the LEM meat grinder on the top shelf, as well as other things, of 1 of our chrome wire ones. There's also a cast iron dutch oven on the second shelf from the bottom.

    That is almost like keeping a very heavy mixer or food processor on the top shelf!
    It is also an accident waiting to happen!! :ohmy::headshake:

    The metal wire shelves i got can hold 350 pounds per shelf. The plastic ones i had gotten a long time ago for the studio claimed to be able to hand 65 a shelf but the started drooping in the middle.

    Nope, they are very strong, nothing at all like the plastic ones. Like @oddduck wrote, they can handle 100s of pounds, unlike the plastic ones.

    We've had some of them going on 10 years and no signs of bowing or weakening yet.
