What is a Wire Rack System in Baking?

    1. Wire racks are a very important component in a cooker/oven.
    2. A wire rack system is a crucial cooling technique in the final stages of baking.
    3. Most baking recipes dictate that a hot pan should be set on a wire rack for cooling.
    4. This is because the presence of heat in the pan further continues the baking process.
    5. Failure of effective cooling leads to overbaking.
    6. The wire rack system facilitates the even circulation of air all around the baked cake including below it.
    7. It is better than setting the pan on top of the kitchen counter which does not allow air below the pan.
    8. Some cookers have a chrome-coated wire rack system for efficient cooling during baking.
