I just bought that exact rack two weeks ago, and promptly returned it. The side upright bars were so flimsy, they're in two pieces that you have to put together, and the thin compressed board they have for the actual shelving isn't fit to hold much, theres no way it can hold the weight it claims it does on the box. In fact my friend broke one of the shelf boards just moving it. We ended up going with a 6' wide steel shelf unit from costco, the upright bars are one solid piece, not two flimsily held together, and it has two steel cross beams under each shelf in addition to the front and back beams, plus steel wire shelving to lay on top. It's $60 more than the Edsel, and 2' longer and 6" deeper, but sooooo much better built.

I would honestly get the cheap wire bakers racks instead, those do hold a lot of weight. If you wanted to replace the shelving on the Edsel, it would be a heck of a lot more sturdy, but that's going to add to the cost. You'll see what I'm talking about when you unwrap it. You can read some more reviews on the shelf material here Shop edsal 72"H x 48"W x 24"D Steel Freestanding Shelving Unit at Lowes.com, I blew this off when I bought mine, and regretted it, only difference between that one and the other is the shelves are painted black on yours.
