Reviewing Betty Crocker 3 Tier Oven Rack

Oven Racks Help For Those Big Dinners

On a daily basis, my oven is sufficient for baking the items I need for just my husband and myself. However, when the holidays come around and I need room to bake several dishes at a time, there is not enough room to fit everything in there. I saw a terrific idea on Pinterest the other day and I have decided that a must have for me is a 3 tier oven rack. 

A 3 tier oven rack like the one above will help me make the best use of my oven space and not have to worry about how to keep one dish warm while I cook the next dish for the meal. I will have enough room to cook my turkey for Thanksgiving plus the pumpkin pie, sweet potato casserole and the stuffing all at once. Obviously on different holidays the menu will change but I won't have to worry about how to get everything in the oven anymore.

What I noticed when I began researching my options is that many of the racks that are available are actually cooling racks and may not be made to sustain the heat of an oven for very long. The Betty Crocker model shown above is made of chrome plated steel and can withstand being in the oven at high temperatures for extended periods of time.

I like that it is easy to store, also. It just folds up flat when you are not using it. It will fit nicely in the drawer that I have my cookie sheets in. That is a nice feature since for the better part of the year, I won't need to use this rack. Although, if I wanted to I could pull it out and use it to cool my cookies and cupcakes on. Gosh, that makes it even more appealing. A cooling rack when I need it and it is sturdy enough to use for baking, too.

With Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners looming on my horizon, I have decided that this is a must have item for my kitchen this year. How about you? When it comes to those large family dinners, do you have enough space in your oven for all the dishes on the menu to be in the oven at the same time or do you need a rack like this, also?

  1. Wow, this 3-tier oven rack is a great find! It makes sense for me to use when I'm baking up several kinds of breads as well. I've had to let the loaf sit out while baking the buns then keep the oven on so that I can then bake the loaf. This oven rack solves that problem for me. Yep, I agree - a must have in my kitchen!

  2. Great find! I love that the rack folds up and can be stored easily - always an issue, I think, in anyone's kitchen. Great find, Bev!

  4. It really is hard to keep everything hot. Being able to cook all of the food at one time would be awesome! I have a double oven, but it still seems that I am always fighting to keep the entire meal warm. This is an excellent idea!

  8. It would be very practical if everything cooks at the same temperature. I'm not doing the big dinners anymore, but even for just the two of us it would save energy to cook as much as possible in the oven at once.
