Blue Flower and Hearts Trivet Cast Iron with Porcelain Enamel 6 1/2 inch diameter Item # C-33BL-M
Cooking on your woodstove can be very satisfying. Dishes that need to simmer for a long
time can cook on the woodstove, freeing the kitchen range for other projects. It's also nice to keep a tea kettle on the stove so that water is already to make
tea. When there's a power outage, you can still cook dinner if you learn to cook on your woodstove. Cast iron frying pans and dutch ovens work best for cooking on
You'll need a woodstove trivet to regulate the level of heat
under a cooking pot and reduce the likelihood of a woodstove kettle or steamer boiling dry.
The word 'trivet' is derived from the Latin word for tripod; hence most trivets have three
legs. Woodstove trivets, however, are typically round or oval discs that sit flat on top of the woodstove. That's because the tips of legs might scratch the
top of your woodstove.
Woodstove trivets are cast iron, generally with a porcelain coating, or are wrought iron filigree
work. They store and conduct heat quite readily, so we really can't recommend using them on the wooden dining room table.
Because trivets, steamers, and kettles all come in a variety of enamel colors, you can match your
woodstove trivet with the steamer or kettle you use with it.
Trivets are a handy accessory to your woodstove. If your
steamer or kettle is boiling too fast, put a trivet under it to reduce the heat. If you want to simmer a yummy stew, put a woodstove trivet under your dutch oven, making
the dutch oven a slow cooker.
