These are not non-stick racks.
They are spot welded thin wire racks that have a chrome appearance which, if chrome, is easier to clean but certainly is not a non-stick surface.
The package cover states "Dishwasher Safe - Easy Clean" and NOWHERE does the term "non-stick" appear on the package.
Definitely for bread/bake-stuff and not for cooling anything that might have a sticky substance in/on it. Nothing hot and still soft can go on the rack, unless you want a square grid pattern...
You cannot use them in an hot area such as oven/BBQ or like a trivet. You cannot use any "abrasive" cleaner or pad on them either which means a long soak and scrubbing with rag/sponge if something is stuck to the surface.
Once the surface becomes scratched, it will rust very quickly so what they really mean by "Nonstick" is that you need to use kitchen utensils that are made for nonstick coatings to place/remove items on the racks.
I was going to use them for cooling bread-stuff as well as items that need to drip grease off of them before storing in the fridge/freezer(e.g., sausage, smoked & BBQ...).
One out of two is okay for me but I am NOT happy that "Nonstick" is being advertised. The dishwasher here(*me*) does not work real good... :)
Basically, cheap, use for a while and then throw away product...
