I love this French Trivet from Le Creuset. It's perfect for hot dishes, and I've even used it as a spoon rest. It also looks so lovely when it's not being used, and is very discreet. My issue with other trivets (which are usually metal) is that they're clunky and scratch my countertop, but this one is subtle and doesn't do any damage.
I would recommend this product to a friend.
