Issue 47 · Dining and Entertaining · November 21, 2012

A holiday essential: the humble trivet, for protecting table surfaces and, ideally, adding a note of style to the holiday table. Here are five we like:

Bagel Trivet Japanese maple, cherry, and walnut, leather string

Above: The Bagel Trivet is carved from Japanese maple, cherry, or walnut and comes with a leather hook for hanging purposes; $80 from Mjölk.

Teak Trivet

Above: The Teak Trivet is $29 from Canoe. The trivet is made from solid teak and stainless steel, and the wooden paddles can be turned outward to expand the diameter to accommodate different size pots and pans.

Japanese Trivet handmade from Straw Schoolhouse Electric

Above: The handmade straw Japanese Trivet is $16 from Schoolhouse Electric.

Trivet Stick Magnetic Y’A PAS LE FEU AU LAC

Concertina Wood Trivet

Above: The Concertina Wood Trivet is $55 from A+R Store. It is made from walnut and expands to fit one or several serving dishes.
