This is an easy way to display your cookbook for easy reading whilst cooking. Simply use a pants/skirt clip coat hanger to clip your book in place. I've tested this with both the old smaller EDC (shown) and the new larger EDC and it holds them in place fine. Just be sure to hang it away from steam so you don't ruin your beautiful cookbook. Another tip: be sure to have your tmx cooking and steaming away out in the open and not under wall shelves or cupboards to avoid steam damaging the finish on them.
