Choosing the right trivet for your needs

A trivet is a must-have kitchen accessory that helps to protect your kitchen benchtops and tables from burn marks, scratches and other heat damage caused by hot cookware. They're a great way to preserve your surfaces and your dishes, plus they allow you to bring your Dutch ovens, pressure cookers, and other dishes to the dining table for serving right out of the hot pot. Discover a great selection of trivets and heat mats at Kitchen Warehouse to suit your needs and your kitchen decor.

Don't risk heat damage

From hot plates and saucepans to teapots and kettles - any hot cookware item can wreak havoc on your expensive kitchen countertops and tables if left for too long. Not only that, heavy pots and dishes can scrape and scratch delicate wood surfaces if you're not careful.

Just like oven gloves protect your hands from hot cookware, a trivet will protect your benchtops from the damage caused by heat and heavy items. Trivets are heat-resistant and typically have non-slip feet to prevent spills and keep your surfaces mark-free.

Silicone trivets: the heat resistance choice

Silicone is an ideal material to make a trivet as it doesn't conduct heat and will stay mostly cool while protecting your tabletops. They are also lightweight, flexible, anti-slip and naturally non-stick which makes spills and stains easy to wipe off.

The Zeal Silicone Hot Mat Large will keep your surfaces free from burns and scratches while providing the perfect non-slip stabiliser for resting bakeware and cookware items on while whisking, beating, stirring and more. There is also the Le Creuset Silicone Cool Tool Round mat in cerise and Marseille blue for adding a bold pop of colour to your dining spaces.

From wooden to silicone trivets - materials and construction

Trivets are made using a variety of materials that can withstand heat up to high temperatures. Some of the most common include:

  • Wood trivet - Wooden trivets have a natural aesthetic and are very heat-resistant, lightweight and sustainable.

  • Cast iron trivet - Cast iron trivets are traditional, sturdy and virtually unbreakable. They also provide excellent heat retention for keeping meals warm for longer.

  • Stainless steel trivet - A stainless steel trivet is durable, dishwasher-safe, rust-proof and unbreakable.

  • Cork trivet - Cork trivets are heat-absorbent, environmentally-friendly, non-slip, hypoallergenic and can absorb vibrations to improve stability of cookware.

  • Silicone trivet - Silicone trivets don't have legs and are called heat mats. They are naturally non-slip, affordable, lightweight and easy to clean.

Trivet design and appearance options

The right trivet can really make an impression at the dining table or elevate the look of your kitchen. If your decor favours a natural and old-world aesthetic, the gorgeous Avanti Hobnail Cast Iron Trivet will fit right in.

The Avanti Tempered Glass Surface Protector comes in a variety of pretty patterns, from olive branches to Mediterranean tiles, and can be used to complement your cutlery and other kitchen utensils.

If you love bold colours, the Le Creuset Silicone Cool Tool Round Mats are available in their signature shades of cerise, satin black, coastal blue and more to be paired with their other cookware items for a unified look.

For a modern kitchen, the Coffee Culture 2pc Stove Ring Set is made from stainless steel and can be placed over trivets and under coffee makers and other pots to reduce the gap and the gas flame used for cooking.

Trivet sets available

Our twin sets of trivets will make it easy to coordinate your kitchen decor. Go natural with the Cuisina Cork Trivets or slip the Kitchen Warehouse Frypan Protectors underneath your frypans to protect their bases when stacked on top of each other.

Large trivets for countertops

A large trivet is ideal when you have a wide surface area to protect or for when you are serving food to many people. The Typhoon Work Surface Protector is made from tempered glass with silicone feet and measures 40cmx30cm to comfortably hold platters and other large dishes. It can be used on the dining table or placed on kitchen countertops as a non-slip base for food preparation.

Factors to consider when selecting trivets

The right trivet should meet your kitchen needs and enhance your home decor. Consider these factors to help you choose the right one:

  • Size - Do you prefer one large trivet to protect a wide surface or would several individual trivets look better?

  • Style - Trivets can protect your dining table, countertops or your stovetop. Traditional trivets have legs while more modern trivets are flat.

  • Ease of use - A trivet should be easy to place where you need, have non-stick properties to prevent spills and be heat-resistant.

  • Design - Match your trivets to your existing decor. Choose from bold and neutral shades to natural, modern and highly ornate patterns.

  • Material - There are trivets made from wood, silicone, stainless steel, glass, cast iron and ceramic.

Maintenance, cleaning and care

Stainless steel and silicone trivets are typically dishwasher-safe and able to be loaded into the dishwasher with other tableware and cookware. Trivets made out of glass or ceramic should be wiped down using a clean cloth and a cast iron trivet can be cleaned with warm, soapy water and a scrub brush before being rinsed and thoroughly dried.

FAQs:

What is the purpose of a trivet?
A trivet is an object that is placed between a dining table or countertop and hot dishes to prevent heat damage from ruining the surface. Traditional trivets have three legs to lift the hot items off the table and promote airflow underneath. A trivet is also called a hot pad and can be made from various materials, including cast iron and stainless steel. Check out our trivets and heat pads by brands like Le Creuset, Stanley Rogers and Joseph Joseph.

What are the benefits of trivets?
Trivets are multi-purpose kitchen accessories that are both functional and able to add a touch of class to your table with the right design. They:

  • Protect your surfaces from heat damage caused by hot saucepans, pots and other dishes.

  • Keep cookware and bakeware items from falling over or spilling.

  • Provide stability for bowls and other items when whisking, stirring, using jar openers and more.

  • Enhance your dining areas with attractive colours and patterns.
