Every household should have at least one cast iron trivet to add some additional charm to its space, and most importantly, protect furniture, tabletops, and counters from the damaging heat all pots and pans have when coming straight from the stove or oven.
Cast iron trivets are an excellent choice because cast iron is a poor conductor of heat, meaning your cuisine will stay warmer longer while resting on top of the cast iron trivet.
