Bargain recipe stand

Trying to prop up a recipe book on the right page without it flipping shut whilst you measure out ingredients and cook,  trying not to spill anything on your book in the process, can often be a recipe for disaster.

But having a stand on which you can pop your recipe book, and ensure it’s well balanced and stays on the right page where you need it, is a better idea.

This chrome recipe holder will do all the work for you, securely keeping the page you want open whilst you get down to the important business of baking, making and cooking.

The recipe stand was £19.95, but is now reduced to just £13.97 in the Graham and Green outlet.
