A baker's rack is a type of furniture with shelves, typically made of wrought iron or some other metal. Traditionally the wire shelves served to help cool a baker's goods such as hot pies. The heat-conducting metal shelving allows for heat to be quickly transferred from the bowl to the shelf. Modern incarnations are typically highly ornamental and may include special shelving designed for tasks not related to cooling, such as wine bottle storage.
