Tip

Make your own trivet


Sick of boring, factory-made trivets cluttering your dinner table?
Here are a few ideas for homemade trivets, easy to make and pretty to look at.



Stone trivet:
What you need:
- An old carpet (you can also use some felt if you want, but a carpet is more rigid)
- Superglue
- A cutter
- Flat stones
Instructions:
Use the cutter to cut the old carpet into pieces. If you want a classic trivet you can cut out round pieces, but you can take any shape you want.

Before you apply glue to the stones it’s best to wash them and get as much dirt off of them as possible. If the surface is clean they will stick better.

Put some superglue on the first stone. I like to use plenty of glue to make sure it stays in its place. Stick the first stone on the middle of the carpet and work your way to the outside.
When you reach the outside of the carpet, let the stones stick out of the edge a little bit. It looks better because you don’t see the carpet underneath.
Let everything dry for a couple of hours and your home-made stone trivet is ready for use! Handle with care, because stones that didn’t adhere well might fall off.

Old cloths braided trivet:
If you still own old colorful kitchen cloths (or even not colored, since you can dye them yourself) get ready to make pretty braided trivets.
Saw the tip of three long stripes of cloth and braid them neatly. Then start rolling the braid around itself so to create a spiral, and each round saw the sides of the two touching braids. This picture will give you a better idea:

Magazine roll trivet:
Take old magazines or colorful papers and glue three or four papers one over the other.
When the glue is dry cut them in stripes and roll them, gluing them in crucial places but making sure that the glue doesn\'t show on the top, bottom or side of the roll, and then keeping them together with a string.
When all rolls are dry you can either tie them all with strings to one another or glue them so to make a nice and colorful trivet
This is what it should look like in the end:

Why do i need a trivet instead of a wet towel?


Trivets are made of temperature regulating materials which prevent the burning or ruining of the surface where the dish/pan/pot is placed. A wet towel, instead, will easily transfer heat thru the water in it and heat up very quickly at contact with a hot surface or object, consequently burning anything it touches. Never grab a hot pot or dish from the oven with a wet towel!

Grease-encrusted cast iron trivets


Try soaking in hot soapy water that you've dropped several denture cleaning tablets in. That's helped me get some tough stuff off, or at least loosened up enough that some elbow grease and a scrubbie can finish off the job.

Put them in the oven and run the self clean cycle

Oven cleaner. That stuff is second only to industrial grade hydrogen peroxide

Batender's Friend. That stuff is amazing!

Good Luck
