Great Gift Idea for Avid Cookers
I recently purchased this and LOVE using it. It's asthetically pleasing and everyone compliments it. I'm sure I'll appreciate the splash guard feature soon enough. It looks very flexible to use with all thicknesses of books but I haven't tested it's capacity too much yet. The spiral bound Betty Crocker book sat in there okay though. The only problem I've had with mine is that after opening it, the acrylic peice was already broken down by the front chrome attachment to the base. When I went to exchange it, the one at the store was already broken too. So make sure you check that the acrylic has not been broken before you leave the store. Also keep in mind there is a spring for the acrylic panel to make it hold the book as flat as possible. So when you remove the back bar, WHAM, it will fall fast. I'd say just use two hands when you're manuevering with your book.

This is perfect for any cookbook collector who also uses their cookbooks. It protects the pages from splatters and kitchen mishaps. It holds the cookbook open at the correct angle to be able to read the recipes without losing one's place on the page. It easily holds thick and thin cookbooks without tipping over. The entire holder folds up for easy and small space storage. Includes a weights and measures conversion chart in the base so you have it nearby if needed. The fashionable color combination complements any kitchen decor. This would be an appreciated gift for a house-warming, bridal shower, or wedding. Also, a perfect gift for yourself if you have been struggling with trying to prop open a cookbook and chasing it across a counter as it slides around.
