Farringdon Cooling Rack
Advantages: Easy to use, easy to clean, long lasting, strong, works well.
I absolutely love to bake. Now I might not always be the best baker but occasionally I get something perfect. I have a cupcake maker for the days when I need to batch bake or want to just be lazy. This is fantastic and the majority of my cakes end up on this cooling rack. I bought my cooling rack about 2 years ago, maybe more, from Amazon and they can be picked up for just a few pounds. This is fantastic for something that can mean the difference between soggy slightly ruined cupcakes and light, fluffy delicious ones that are perfect.
This cooling rack is 40 cm by 25 cm and it is a generous enough size for the occasional baker. For example, today I baked two batches of scones. I made 16 scones that were a fairly generous size and they were just able to fit on this cooling rack with just one or two squished up next to one another. I have also been able to fit a full 23 or 24 cupcakes (my standard batch size from my cupcake maker) on this too when I've needed to. The rack is nice and lightweight and it has a criss cross design all over it. There are little bended metal feet that sit nicely on the worktop and don't wobble at all. This cooling rack is very sturdy and this is ideal as I often leave my cupcakes to cool on there before icing them while on there too. This is very simple for me as then if I need to move everything as long as I take care I can just pick the rack up and move it across my kitchen.
This rack appears to be stainless steel but I cannot confirm that for sure as I obviously don't have any packaging for it. Basically I wash this every time that I use it and I find it very simple to clean. Because of the criss cross design you can get bits of cake or icing that go along the bars but I just run a sponge scourer all over my rack and then rinse it clean in cold water. It comes up looking fantastic and despite weekly, sometimes twice weekly, usage this has not rusted and none of the coating (if there is any) has come off.
It is fair to say that I find this cooling rack incredibly useful. It is simple to use, it works very well and it looks good too. It has lasted a long time and it works fantastic at cooling items. It does not sag under the weight of two medium cakes side by side and I've not had any damage occur to this at all despite regular use, sometimes repeated use on the same day. The bars are criss crossed in a manner that still allows lots of air to reach the bottom of the cake and apart from a very heavy cake I haven't had a problem with the criss cross pattern marking cakes, also, on the one occasion it did I just iced the top and sides of the cake and it wasn't a problem at all. I really love my cooling rack and feel that it works incredibly well. I will rate it 5/5 stars and feel it is worthy.
Summary: A fantastic cooling rack from Faringdon.
