My induction cooktop insists that I remove pans after cooking. I have some disks for using non-induction cookware, and they get so hot, I've scorched a silicone mat. Any suggestions for a stove-side trivet that is extremely heat resistant and looks good too?
A riff on that question--I have a new redwood table, which is a pretty soft wood. I worry I could scorch it it during table-top cooking. Any advice for effective and attractive table-top protection.?
