John Lewis Cookbook Stand
Does the job
Yes, pleased with this product so far. Held a fairly hefty cookery book, very stable. I also had a problem with the front sticker, some small pieces left on. I smeared some olive oil on, left it for a few hours and it all wiped away (a tip I found on the web, it said vegetable oil).

Love the design - hate the label !!!
I have just had to write to customer services about this, I had to scrub to get the label off and now my holder is damaged in a way that is beyond obvious and spoils the look of the page on display…. I want one but not with a dirty great label attached to it !!

Great product - poor labeling
Like so many who have reviewed this product before, the unremoveable label has caused me so much trouble! I have resisted abrasive products and solvents because they would have damaged the transparent surface. Washing up liquid has helped, but there is still a residue of glue!
I made the mistake of not reading the reviews before purchase - no more impromptu purchases at john Lewis, I'm afraid.
Doesn't anyone at John Lewis read these reviews and get the problem sorted?

After all the previous reviews in regard to the sticker, with trepidation I went to remove the sticker and I can confirm that it came off very easily, phew. It is a great product that will protect the pages as my husband is a messy baker. Only ordered the stand yesterday and collected it from my local Waitrose this afternoon, click and collect is fantastic!

Simple and very efficient
This is a well designed, robust stand that keeps receipe books clean and as it is clear plastic does not intrude on the eye when it doesn't contain a book. It works well for all shapes and sizes of books. You wonder how you managed without one before.

Having bought this as a gift for our baking mad teenaged daughter, Grandma saw it in use and commented that she'd like one. Duly bought for Christmas present and it's already seen action. She's very happy and didn't have too much trouble with the label.

super glue sticker
Great product and value but I couldn't remove the sticker - after hours of soaking and scrubbing, i still couldn't remove the sticker, the stand is now smeared in glue and is going in the bin!

Great Product, but the sticker is a nightmare!
I bought this yesterday. It is perfectly designed. Good for the purpose and no superfluousness but, I spent 2 hours trying to remove the label. It's right on the front, so needed to be removed, and I used washing up liquid, boiling water, soaking, elbow grease. Finally resorted to windowlene, which has almost done the job, but the surface is now dull, as it has a scoured look. I see people raised this issue here a long time ago and still JL not resolved this simple issue. I am considering returning the item, but really, it's not what we expect, and the journey and effort and cost of petrol hardly justifies the value of the product.
