Best Cooling Racks
Every baker should have at least one good cooling rack, but if you do a lot of baking, you may want to invest in several so you never run out of room to cool the delicious baked goods that you create. A cooling rack is used to cool down your food evenly and quickly. Unlike setting something down on a counter, when a cooling rack is used, air can circulate all the way around it, cooling things down much faster and without hot spots. This ensures the best tasting food and best results when it comes to icing and additional work that may need to be done on the baked goods.
The importance of this faster cool down is that it stops the baked goods from continuing to cook in the pan longer than they should. This can lead to over baking and in some cases it can ruin how your food comes out. Another benefit to cooling racks is when you take a baked good out of the pan to cool directly on the rack, condensation is prevented which comes from the steam the food releases. When steam comes into contact with certain baked goods, it can become mushy, ruining the look and taste if what you made.
