Colour Name:Black
This arrives in a couple of bits but is really easy to just pop together with screws (provided in the box). I love the look and feel of this book holder - it really is a solid, sturdy and pretty accessory as you would expect from cast iron. You can also adjust the height at which you want the stand, and it has a non slip bottom which is useful. It is also roughly the size of a large cookery book though so does take up quite a lot of space on the work surface and cannot really be stowed away anywhere after use.

It holds open large cookery books easily. However the weights are not really positioned well enough to allow for smaller books, which is a shame as I have quite a few. I have also found that it can sometimes struggle to hold open newly purchased paperback books as the weights are not quite heavy enough to compensate for their desire to stay firmly closed - though it can be done with the additional of a few extra home-made weights, blue-tac and some tampering! You do also, occasionally, have to sweep the cords from side to size to read your recipes as they can hide all important quantities etc - I would have preferred something along the side or bottom but, on the plus side, it means it can hold any thickness of book.

Overall it really is a gorgeous, very well built book stand; I just wish that it could cope better with all sizes of cookbooks and that the weights were maybe slightly heavier. It is on the expensive side for not being fully equipped for its role but otherwise I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!! 21 Feb 2011
By Nigley
Colour Name:Cream
I got this bookstand for my Birthday and I love it. It stops your books getting messy. I even put recipes I have printed from the internet or cut out of magazines on it. It's great. I even put my reading book on it and read whilst I am eating my lunch. The danglers hold the pages open so you can read and eat at the same time. The colour is lovely and clean looking too. A must have for regular cooks.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, just a few issues. 21 Jan 2012
Colour Name:Black
A nice, heavy, rugged and traditional design, just be careful when moving this stand around on a non-scratch resistant surface or glossy type worktops. We have ours on a coaster. Pro-Cook need to develop shallow black rubber "boot" for the base, it truly is a casting!

The second issue is the stands adjustment lever - There is a bolt through the stand with a small arm to tighten up the stand at its required angle, the only minor problem is the hex head of the bolt is not captive and we needed a spanner to hold it whilst locking up the other side with the lever arm. (didn't really want to get my spanners out on Xmas day!) I think the casting should be re-designed to recess the bolt holding the head captive providing a one handed action. Having said that the angle of the stand will probably stay in the same position now and is a one off issue.

The stand (a Christmas present) is well packaged but I was a little disappointed that the box it came in was emblazoned with ProCooks livery and although it didn't give away the contents, my wife kind of guessed what it was when she signed for it.

My Wife likes it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Cast Iron Bookstand 2 Mar 2011
Colour Name:Cream
I purchased this item when moving house for my new Kitchen. I was very disappointed when it arrived to find that it was very badly cast. It had rough edges and was scratched and missing paint in sections. The stand also did not hold a book as the knob at the back could not be tightened enough. Overall a very cheap product, in no way high end design or finish. I returned the product and was given a full refund.

4.0 out of 5 stars More support ledge depth, please 12 May 2012
Colour Name:Cream|Verified Purchase
This stand is attractive and robust - however, the lack of depth on the support ledge makes it necessary to lean the stand backwards significantly to prevent a book of normal thickness from falling off. As cookery books tend to be thick, this is something the designers should try to amend.

Good product, however the two page holders could do with improvement. They are not well designed and flimsy. Overall OK.
