The trivet can be placed crossed beneath pots and small dishes, but divided in two for larger dishes, for example roasting tins. Thanks to the built-in magnets, the trivet stays with the saucepan as it is moved around the table. After use, it folds away neatly into the drawer. The trivet has built-in magnets and is made of silicone-coated nylon. It is dishwasher-safe.
