What I liked about this binder: Nice quality and attractive for the price. Provided not only the 8.5 x 11 Inch inserts but also 25 of the 5x7 Inch recipe cards with a few inserts to hold some of them. While they did not provide a huge quantity of either type of insert, they are readily available for purchase and I figure that the fewer numbers certainly kept the price down.
What I didn't like about this binder were the category divider tabs (other purchasers also took issue). While I do not love the categories as listed, I can certainly live with that. My major complaint is that the inserts are larger than the divider tabs so you cannot see the category tabs at all. The whole point of having the tabs is so that you can open the binder and see where you need to flip to at a glance. This "defect" makes the divider tabs almost pointless. If it bugs me enough, I'll end up replacing the divider tabs with large ones but overall a good purchase.
Well, the binder itself is nice, and I like it. It is bright, colorful and glossy, relatively sturdy and the ring binders are attached at the middle, which was important to me. That being said, however, there is one big thing I would change, and that is the food categories listed on the page divider tabs. They are categorized in a way that didn't make a lot of sense to me. For example, they are listed below, and I commented on a few:
Sauces & Soups
Meats (I actually put all meats here: chicken, beef, pork, etc.)
Fish & Poultry (Why not put Poultry with the meats? Fish should be separate. It would've made more sense to have one just labeled "Seafood")
Breads & Rolls
I feel one glaring omission was a "Pasta/Rice" category, which in my case, is a huge deal, so I made one of my own using a blank page divider. I also revised the Fish & Poultry to just have a "Seafood" section.
Additionally, I do recommend buying sheet protectors separately because this kit only comes with 8 of them. It also comes with 6 sheet protectors that hold (3) 5x7 recipe cards, and 25 blank recipe cards. So while a nice kit with a decent binder, it is far from perfect. A little tweaking by the manufacturer and it could be absolutely fantastic.
Purchased this recipe binder book as a gift for my granddaughter. Will be filling it with many favorite recipes for her.
Would highly recommend this book!
Thank you Amazon for always having the perfect product!
