“Protect your fabulous worktop, from cooling down them tasty bakes, and hot pots and pans with a simple but smart kitchen accessory!”
In this blog I will be talking about how a trivet and worktop saver can become the most used accessory in the household, as well as all the different ones on the market today. I think you will be able to find the perfect one that matches your style as well as your personality, and find lots of uses for your smart purchase.
You may be one of those classy style people who love having dinner parties and more than usual family/ friend gatherings, or a lover for baking and you are trying to find the perfect way to keep your home fresh and beautiful for guests and yourself of course, then trivet’s and savers are ideal. They add a decorative appearance to your worktop as well as the dining table, and the most important thing of all protect your worktops from heat, scratches and overall damage.
A trivet is an object that is placed between a serving dish or bowl on a worktop or dining table, to protect from heat damage. It’s purpose is to keep the heat raised up from a hot surfaced dish to protect the surface it is placed on to. The word “trivet” comes from Latin tripes meaning “tripod”. A trivet is also referred to a tripod and is often a tripod-like structure with three legs to support, but may come four legged. It is a kitchen basic that is a smart kitchen gadget, that comes in all different shapes, sizes, colours and designs.
A worktop saver is a highly versatile board that is used for a variety of tasks in the kitchen. They aim to satisfy food preparation as well as protecting the work surfaces from heat, scratches and damage as previously mentioned. They brighten up the kitchen and come in a range of materials, colours, shapes and sizes. A tough glass worktop saver can be doubled as a heat mat or serving board!
“Protect your table in style!”
Trivet’s can be used for many different things such as a fun and modern center piece for that beautiful bouquet of flower or house plants. This will add a quirky new meaning to the hub of the home, and also protect from water damage and scratches. It adds an extra special touch to the tops of your prepping and eating areas, as well as a shelf or the window sill and can be easily upgraded when you fancy a new style. Don’t we just love changing accessories with seasons and styles! I do!
Trivet’s are made from a range of materials. They started out by being made of cast iron and heavy metals, and as the years have gone on have been produced in other materials. For a natural look, wood and cork have been implemented in to the design to make a stunning trivet. They are lightweight and simple, yet still serve the purpose of insulating the worktop/table from heat.
I have researched in to the market of trivet’s and savers today and found the following attractive pieces, that will look stunning in the kitchen. I am sure you will be able to find one that will be well suited within your choice of decor.
