Enclume (pronounced “Ahn-Kloom”) pot racks add a distinctive finishing touch to any kitchen. Pot racks not only organize your pots and pans in a single, convenient, easy to reach location, they also add a touch of style and class to the décor. Enclume racks feature signature hanging arms supporting the main rim rather than the typical lightweight chain hooked through a thin rim. Their hammered steel is recognized as the standard in cookware rack finishes and construction. All racks come complete with screw pot rack hanging hooks and an assortment of pot hooks.

About the Materials and Finishes
The strength of Enclume products begins with the materials they use, like high carbon steel. Their racks are forged up to twice as thick as their closest competitor. The flat bar steel they use is ideally-suited for the transformation they accomplish to reveal the rich, distressed patina look of their signature hammered steel finish. A protective coating is also applied to help keep maintenance to a minimum. Maintenance guidelines are included with your assembly and installation instructions.

Whether the ceiling is low or the person is tall, Enclume racks have been designed to fit all needs.
Several, but not all, of the Enclume pot racks are designed for optimum use when installed from an eight foot ceiling. It is important to use the following measurements to determine what pot rack height is ideal for your kitchen.
- The person using the rack needs to determine what a comfortable reach is for them. With a tape measure or yard stick in your hand, hold your arm in the air and reach for the cookware you will be hanging. Measure the distance from your hand to the ceiling (your “reach”).
- Now measure the length of your shortest pan. When you add the height of pot rack given above and length of pan together, the result should equal or be slightly more than your reach measurement.
- For cookware with floppy hanging holes, your reach measurement may need to be increased to accommodate hanging this type of handle.
- Also consider how you plan to use your rack as part of the selection process. For example, consider the size of an island in relation to the dimension of the rack and the possible need to not only reach up but also to reach in to grasp the cookware. Your reach measurement should be adjusted accordingly.
Selecting Pot Rack Hooks
- A straight pot hook lies flat and when placed on a rack allows for the flat surface of your cookware to face you.
- An angled pot hook is bent at a 90-degree angle and allows for nesting the cookware close together and uses the rack space efficiently.
