Trivet - Cast Iron Star shaped Trivet 125
These have been made to match our range of cast iron Teapots & Kettles to protect your surfaces from the heat. At the base of these trivets are five legs. Note this trivet does not have rubber feet.
Wider Teapots with a base of 11.5cm can sit on top of the Trivet. Teapots with a base of 7cm sit very securely at the lower level of the Trivet.
Instructions for use:
1) After each use, make sure that the trivet is clean and dry to prevent the formation of rust. If water is left on the trivet, chemicals from the minerals in the water may eventually erode the enamel coating.
2) In the unlikely event of rust, the trivet can still be used. After cleaning the rusted area with a soft brush, boil used teabags or tealeaves and apply to the surface of the trivet. The tannic acid from the tea will react naturally with the iron producing a coating over the area.
3) Store your trivet in a cool, dry place or put it on display.
