Before buying a cookbook stand, there are a few points you should take into consideration, such as size, page holders, and whether they fold. To help you with this, we’ve put together this handy buying guide!
Cookbook stands come in many different sizes and styles. If your counter space is at a premium, look for smaller stands. Stands made from metal often take up less space and don’t have as wide a base as some wooden ones.
Cookbook stands with adjustable angles have the widest bases, so you may want to avoid these if you don’t have space for them.
However, you don’t want a stand that is too small for your cookbooks! Cookbooks can be heavy, hard-backed books with large pages; if this is the case for your collection, you will need a stand that is large and sturdy enough to hold these hefty books.
If you’re in the tricky spot of having little space and large books, we’d recommend getting the largest stand you have space for. You don’t want to risk your cookbook unbalancing the stand and falling onto the floor or straight into your cooking!
Keeping any book open on a specific page can be tricky, and cookbooks are no different. By setting the cookbook on a stand, you’re placing it at an angle; this makes the pages even more determined to turn, leaving you staring at a different recipe. If your hands are covered in flour, turning back to the correct page won't be convenient!
Many cookbook stands are designed with these issues in mind. They have small clips, usually at the bottom but occasionally at the top, that are placed over the open pages to stop them from closing.
Other stands have a raised ledge that your book slides into, stopping the pages from turning. Just make sure there is enough space for your book to fit in the first place!
It’s possible to buy cookbook stands that have an acrylic shield built-in. This shield is placed over the cookbook and covers it completely. This stops your pages from turning and protects them from any flying flour or sauce spatter!
Often these stands are entirely made from acrylic, but you can find wooden stands that have these shields too.
Not everyone uses a cookbook every day. Whether you don’t cook new recipes daily or often cook dishes you’ve memorized, an unneeded cookbook stand can just get in the way.
Many cookbook stands can fold, making them much slimmer and easier to store. If you have a small kitchen or just want to keep your stand out of the way, a folding stand is essential.
When your cookbook stands aren’t in use, trying using them to hold something else. They’re usually the ideal size to hold textbooks or a magazine if you want to keep your hands free while you read.
They can also double as tablet stands, making them a perfect accessory for watching movies or TV shows on a tablet screen. You can even use cookbook stands as mini-easels for small sketchpads if you’re an artist and prefer working that way.
Using a stand for your cookbook can be far more convenient than just placing it on the counter, and there are several more ways you can make cooking easier. Check out some of our favorite kitchen supplies to help make cooking a breeze!
We found that the best cookbook stands are large enough for your cookbooks but don't take up more space than you have to spare. They have clips to keep your books open at the right place and can be folded for easier storage.
If you're a messy cook, why not consider a stand with an acrylic cover to protect the pages of your cookbook? Whatever cookbook stand you chose, we hope it helps you cook many delicious dishes!
