No More Cookbook Stands: The Recipe Rock

Here's one intriguing little thing I saw at the Housewares show last week: The Recipe Rock! It's a kitchen accessory that understands that many of us cook from computer printouts instead of cookbooks. See it in action below.

Many of us now use recipes from the internet (maybe even from The Kitchn's recipe archive?) and unless you have an iPad, computer, or mobile device in the kitchen with you, that means printouts. I often print out recipes I'm working on, especially when I want to make notes on them or adjust quantities. And unless you have one of these awesome rails on your backsplash, it can be hard to prop up a single sheet of paper.

Enter the Recipe Rock, an inexpensive stand for a few pieces of paper. It's very small, and yet the magnet can hold the page upright. I don't usually go for gadget-y things like this, but I thought it was a smart idea. Its profile is so small, I could find a place for it even my little kitchen.

Find it: Recipe Rock, $9.95 at Breadtopia

What do you cook from most frequently? Printouts or copied recipes? Cookbooks? Your iPhone?
