Picking out a recipe stand might seem like a pretty straightforward affair, but there are many different types and styles that will work best for some and not so well for others. In this post, I want to share my thoughts on what works best for different kitchens and cooking styles.
With lots of different recipe book holder choices on the market it’s easy to buy one for yourself or one as a gift that isn’t going to get nearly as much use as you would like. The first thing that you have to take into consideration is the design and style of the kitchen and its decor. There are bamboo, wrought iron, acrylic, stainless steel, and other wooden and metal types. This means that there’s one that will fit every kitchen, and dozens that won’t at all! Take a close look at the kitchen’s decor and the materials of the accessories and small appliances that are in it. If the food processor, paper towel holder, and coffee grinder are all stainless, then a stainless cookbook holder would probably suit the kitchen. If there is a “country feel” to the kitchen then a wrought iron or wooden one will work best. If you get a recipe stand that really fits the theme of the kitchen, it will become an integral part of the kitchen and cooking.
The cooking style of the family is also important when considering which recipe book stand to choose. Families that cook frequently are obviously going to get the most out of something like this, but younger families that are learning to cook will also gain some encouragement with a nice cookbook holder.
If you’re like me and spend most of your awake hours at home in the kitchen, then an under cabinet cookbook holder is ideal. If you look at the picture in the top right, my cookbook holder is just behind my right hand, underneath that cabinet. It gets a ton of use, since we’re always trying out new things.
The more casual cook will get more use out of a counter top cookbook holder since it can easily be broken down and put away.
With so many choices available, I hope that I’ve been able to help you narrow down the decision on what you really need. Below you’ll see a small selection of the most popular cookbook holders that Amazon.com has to offer. Shopping with them is great because they will ship everything you need together to your house at a great price. To see all of the cookbook stands that Amazon has to offer, click here.
