Stainless Steel Cookbook Holder
Terrific Display Item!
I use this cookbook holder for two reasons: 1.) To display cookbook photography to match the seasons and 2.) to actually use it as a cookbook stand. I have many different size cookbooks with many different types of bindings (spiral, yarn, staple, hard bound, soft bound...) and this holder can accommodate all of them! Some of my bigger books aren't exactly protected from splashes by the plastic screen, but it does certainly save a lot of them. The adjustable base is so simple and elegant looking that it matches every single kitchen decor I've lived through. Now it rests in the corner of my rustic kitchen and it is very lovely. The only complaint is the plastic cover seems to get more scratched up and looks cheap compared to the stainless steel base. Otherwise, I love this product and would purchase it again or give it as a gift.

My husband likes to help in the kitchen, when the cookbook was flat on the counter, he splattered water and other liquids on the pages, causing staining and wrinkling of the pages. Bought the cookbook stand and voila, problem solved. Book stands upright at about a 20 degree angle making it easy to read. The plastic shield allows you to follow the recipe with you fingers, you can wipe up any residue easily, and the shield covers both pages of the cookbook. It accommodates different size cookbooks. It's great. Highly recommend it.

Worth The Price!!!
I hesitated before spending $30 on a cookbook stand BUT I'm glad I bought it. It is sturdy, protects my books, and looks great in my kitchen. I keep a favorite recipe displayed. It's from an old cookbook that my mother used to recreate a recipe my great-grandmother made. Mor-Mor never wrote anything down so Mother watched her, Swedish cookbook in hand, making adjustments to a printed recipe as my great-grandmother made HER grandmother's Swedish meatballs. I wouldn't want anything to ruin that page. While I use this for all of my cookbooks, that page is always displayed in my kitchen. This stand will hold the thickest of books just as well as the thin ones. The look is crisp and clean and goes with any decor.

Adaptable to all recipes
This stand can hold a big fat cookbook or a single index card. The brushed metal is simple in a classy way.
For the largest books, the acrylic isn't quite big enough, but since it's a separate piece, I'm thinking I can get a slightly larger one to swap in.
