Red Hot Trivet Won’t Burn You

by Paul Strauss

Whenever I’m cooking, I find myself with at least one pot, pan or plate which is too hot to handle, and needs to go on top of a trivet to keep it from burning the place down. But trivets are usually pretty boring things, so it’s nice to see something with a bit more style and humor like this “Red Hot” trivet.

Artist Marcia Stuermer and the guys at Fossil Faux Studios make these transluscent hot pink resin trivets which are very reminiscent of the heat coming off an electric cook top. Each one measures about 8.25″ in diameter and 3/4″ thick, and is ready to handle the heat of any pot or pan you throw on top of it.

The only odd thing about these is that I think the cooking element part should be the glowing red/pink bit, and the other areas should be black. But somehow the illusion is still quite effective as-is. At $50 (USD) each, they’re not exactly the world’s cheapest trivets, but they are quite possibly the coolest. You can grab a Red Hot trivet over on Etsy now.

I think it would be fun to put four of these out on the dinner table before guests arrive and mess with their heads when you place the pots on top of them.
