You definitely are doing the right thing. I am disappointed that it took me so many years to start using them. They make the whole experience so much more ergonomic. This is something I thought little of in my 20's.Thank you! I wanted to make sure I was doing the right thing in buying one.
I use my daughter's old band Hamilton stand, and a Pioneer Woman cookbook stand.I have the old school fold-up chrome Hamilton stand with a simple case., and a desktop version of the same Hamilton.
Tip: You can get a lot of countertop cookbook stands. Some have page hold-downs, some don't.
