A good friend of mine just got the Clear Solutions Jumbo Cookbook Holder and I decided to write up a review for you guys (and gals). I use an under counter cookbook holder, personally, but this thing is sweet and is what I’d use if I was going to go retro, erm, on the counter!
Jumbo is definitely right when it comes to describing this cookbook holder, but don’t let that scare you into not buying it. The entire thing breaks down flat so it’s extremely easy to store in a cabinet. The acrylic plastic “splash guard” is very easy to clean, and just needs to be rinsed or wiped off if it catches some food goo. It holds very large cookbooks as well as recipes that have been printed from the computer, all with ease.
So, how does it work? It certainly wasn’t rocket science to come up with the groove design at the bottom that allows the backing to move forward or backward, but it’s still a great design. There’s a plastic backing that fits into the slots and you adjust it to how thick or thin your book is. The splash guard is on a hinge that presses in towards the cookbook, keeping it in place. With it being on a hinge you can easily pull it forward to change pages of your cookbook.
All in all, I really like the Clear Solutions Jumbo Cookbook Holder. If I was to move to an on the counter cookbook holder, this one would definitely be my choice! Check this cookbook holder out on Amazon.com by clicking here.
