Cast Iron Trivets – What Are They?
The word ‘Trivet’ originates from ‘trevet,’ a Middle English word which means a ‘cooking vessel,’ plus the Old English Word ‘trefet,’ meaning ‘three-footed.’ This is because trivets were originally designed as a method for keeping pots and kettles above an open fire, ensuring food cooked at lower temperatures.
