What is the point of this oven rack shape?

3 months ago

DD has a 20 year old Jenn-Aire convection double wall oven that came with her house. The picture below is NOT her oven but the racks are the same. What is the point of the rack that is shaped to hang lower than the slides it rests on? It cuts down on the usable space on that rack quite a bit. A half sheet pan will barely fits. The fit is so tight that the sheet pan cannot slide on the rack but must be placed on the rack. It is a pain, especially when you are trying to put a sheet pan loaded with something heavy in the oven and reaching over the door while doing so.

For reference, it is model WW27430P.
