I was so excited when it came in the mail from CSNstore.com. I was immediately impressed with the feel and color of the wood, it felt durable and like it would survive my crazy cooking ways.
I LOVE the rubber-tipped pegs that slide up to hold open the book. The cookbook I use a lot is the cookbook that I put together for myself and the other members of the Cooking Club when we did it the first time around a couple of year ago. I printed the book on Blurb and it is so wonderful except it does not stay open, I should have got it printed with a ringed edge. I usually would use a heavy measuring cup or box of food along one edge to try and keep it open while cooking, but I won't have to do that anymore!When I was picking out a cook book stand I also had another specification that I required. Whenever I make a new recipe from the Cooking Club, I don't bother printing it out and usually just pull it up in my e-mail on my iPod Touch. So I would usually place my iPod close enough, but far enough away from my crazy splash zone to read the recipe. So I wanted a place where I could set my iPod too... and well since Saturday, now the iPad.
So I am in love with my new Cook Book Stand.
