Having a cookbook holder might seem like an extraneous kitchen tool, but it is an excellent way to take care of your cookbook collection and make cooking a little bit easier. How many cookbooks do you have that have pages that look like you pulled it out of the pool? Wavy and screwed up pages are a thing of the past with cookbook holders!
A cookbook stand is designed to hold up your cookbook and keep your recipe’s page open, all while keeping the kitchen splatter off of the book. Without a holder cookbooks can become pretty nasty, especially when you’re pounding out burgers or chicken nearby!
The most quality cookbook holders will have a clear plastic sheet that sits in front of the pages so you can keep your recipe right in the “danger zone” without worrying about ruining the book. It will also protect the book from the stove’s heat which can ignite a cookbook, or at least melt the binding of the book and make the pages fall out (I’m very guilty of that!).
There are under cabinet cookbook holders that fold up into the cabinet and out of the way. When you need to use it just fold it out and place your recipe there and it’ll be right at eye level. These work best when you have deep cabinets, but can function with just about any cabinet setup.
Most counter top cookbook holders will break down and fold up so they can be easily stored when you aren’t using them. These holders do a great job of holding large cookbooks upright so they are much easier to read (think “Joy Of Cooking” and other huge cookbooks).
You’ll be surprised by how much use you get out of your cookbook holder. Once you use one, you won’t know how you ever lived without it. It keeps the kitchen and your cookbooks much cleaner, which improves their lifespan.
