There is an idiom to use when something has gone wrong or doesn't work anymore: We say, "It's gone to pot." It comes from the fact that in history, when food was scarce, people used the bone, fat and scraps to make a meal in a pot. Well, I'm not talking about what doesn't work, but what DOES - the pot rack! It comes and goes in trends, but in working kitchens, it is a staple. They come in wood, but metal is the most used. There are lots of people who make their own.
I used to have one like photo 5, but gave it to a friend. Now we have a lighted one (still in the box) for Old Sweetwater that I need to paint white. Do you have a pot rack?
