I bought this as a gift for my mother and she loves it, I'm considering getting one myself. Designed to be used with a good old cook book or a tablet, it's useful for all kinds of situations, even just as a way of protecting your tablet while you watch TV while you cook. The real stand out feature for me is that it folds up to become the size of a book and can be slotted onto a bookshelf out of the way when it's not needed. Many cook book stands are fixed and are difficult to store and have to sit out on your side taking up space. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes to cook a lot in the kitchen, especially if you're a messy cook, and also to anyone who uses their tablet in any kind of messy conditions.
