Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Has everything you need in a stand for a reasonable price
The OXO Pop-up cookbook holder is made from sturdy plastic, fits most cookbooks and can be put away in a bookshelf when folded flat. It has a see-through plastic splatter guard and costs about 40% less than other holders with this feature.
Pro Fits most cookbooks
The OXO stand can comfortably hold a single sheet of paper (better with a piece of cardboard or a thin book underneath) as well as cooking magazines or cookbooks of medium thickness (up to 2.5'').
Pro Easy to store, doesn't take up a lot of space
The OXO stand folds down into a compact (9'' x 1.75'' x 12.62'') rectangle and can be stored in the bookshelf together with the cookbooks.
Pro Suitable for smartphones and tablets
This stand can hold smartphones and tablets. The plastic front pane covers the whole tablet (when horizontally placed) from possible splatter.
Con Splatter guard doesn't cover the whole page
The splatter guard on this stand is only 8'' x 11'', so the top two inches of the standard-sized hardcover cookbook's page is left uncovered.
Con Can't turn a page without lifting a large book up
If the cookbook is large or thick, the bottom part of the pages gets stuck in the stand. To turn the page you have to lift the book up. However, with smaller books, you can fold the splatter guard forward about halfway and turn the page.
Con Only one reading angle
This stand has only one reading angle - it can't be adjusted.
