Hold Cookbook Page Holder

Designer: Pascal Charmolu

Dimensions: 10.5 x 1.5"
Price: was $32.00; Now $24.00

Use that big can of tomatoes for spaghetti rather than to hold your cookbook open. This sleek stainless bar keeps pages in view and is also helpful if you like to read during dinner, as it frees up both hands for eating.
