 Most modern trivets are only used to keep a hot pot insulated from burning the kitchen counter/table. However a proper iron trivet can also be used to cook over an open fire. Great for camping and outdoors types. I have personally used my own trivets at home to cook in my fireplace. Most modern trivets are only used to keep a hot pot insulated from burning the kitchen counter/table.
