4 Unique Ways Of Using Baking Racks

Baking racks are an essential tool in every baker's arsenal. While they are usually used for baking or storing food items, did you know there are also several unique ways of using them? Baking racks have a multitude of unique and unexplored uses that will transform the way you cook and bake. In this blog post, we'll explore four creative ways to use baking racks that you may have never thought of before.

What are the unique and unexplored ways of using a baking rack?

1. To dice/smash soft ingredients: 

Place softer fruits like avocados or mangoes on the baking rack while cutting them into small pieces or mashing them with a fork. The holes of the rack will allow you to easily dice or mash without making a mess. Simply place the fruit (or any ingredient for that matter) on top of the rack and press down gently with a knife or fork until they are diced into small pieces.

2. As a makeshift trivet: 

Baking racks make great trivets when you don't have one on hand! Simply place hot dishes on top of the rack to protect your countertops from heat damage. Racks that are made of high density polypropylene (HDPP) can withstand heat without damaging themselves.

3. As a drying rack: 

Use your baking rack as an alternative drying method for dishes, glasses, and other items that may not fit in your dish-drying tray. Instead of using a traditional dish-drying rack that takes up counter space, consider using your baking rack as an alternative.

4. To create shelving in your refrigerator: 

If you're short on space in your fridge, try placing a baking rack inside to create extra shelving for smaller items like condiments or snacks. You can also use it to store eggs or small fruits.
