These beauties were made and given to me by my father-in-law. Not only are they beautiful, they are incredibly handy, too. They are wonderful when pulling a hot pan or dish out of the oven; it can go straight on top.
They give height to serving dishes on the table at a party for visual interest, and they would work great for a cheese course. The added height is a also bonus if I’m using my computer or phone for a recipe to keep the device out of harms way. The stone coordinates perfectly with my countertops and kitchen decor. Can you tell I love them?
If you’re not familiar with the term trivet, it is an alternative to a cloth potholder that protects your counter or table from heat. Trivets are usually made from wood, metal, ceramic, or cork.
