I'm a huge fan of big cookbooks, the kind that promise to teach you an entire cuisine in one go. I like having all those recipes accessible, but the cookbooks can be awkward. The Clear Solutions Jumbo Cookbook Holder holds even extra-large cookbooks open to the recipe of your choice. It makes following along much easier and protects your books from sticky fingers and splatters with a clear, acrylic cover guard. The guard folds forward for easy page turning and is hinged to the wooden base. This cookbook holder seems more solid than some of the other options out there.
The Clear Solutions Jumbo Cookbook Holder folds flat, so you can store it easily. The base measures 15.75 inches wide by 16 inches deep, and the acrylic guard is slightly smaller at 15.75 inches wide by 12 inches deep. It's tall enough to use even with magazines: even the upper edges of the page will be protected. If you do find yourself with a bit of a cooking mess, the makers recommend wiping down the Clear Solutions Jumbo Cookbook Holder with a soft cloth. The holder is priced at $39.00.
