There are many different ways cooling racks come in handy in the kitchen: cooling cookies before boxing them up, roasting a chicken, and making bacon in the oven (while cutting down on some of that grease). But finding a great set can be tough. Sometimes they come with a coating that melts or starts to rust after only a few uses, or they aren't a standard size for baking sheets and don't fit snugly inside. It can be hard to tell what you're getting into before buying some cooling racks, but with over 14,000 five-star ratings on Amazon and a number one best-seller ranking, purchasing the Checkered Chef Cooling Racks is an easy decision to make. 

This set of two racks is, of course, oven-safe and made out of 100% stainless steel that's resistant to warping and rusting. They're the standard size for quarter sheet pans and the grid design ensures proper drainage and cooling without food falling through to the pan below. Shoppers love that they're dishwasher safe for easy and quick cleanup, and right now, the set is  on sale for only $20 on Amazon—a price that compelled some shoppers to buy multiple as gifts.

To buy: Checkered Chef Cooling Rack, Set of Two, $20 (originally $23) at amazon.com

"These are the best cooling racks ever!" one shopper writes. "I have had a set of these for, gosh, years and years and years, seriously, like 20 years. So for Christmas this year, I bought four new sets for my daughter, two more sets as gifts, and another for myself. These things are great because unlike some other brands, they do not rust and don't have Teflon on them (which most do)—thank goodness, and those you cannot use in the oven or set hot pans on. These things will take all kinds of abuse, [and they're] heat and dishwasher safe!"
