Trivae is a trivet, but it's not your usual trivet. It folds and twists and contorts itself into different configurations.
Well, it doesn't contort itself. Not like some sort of self-propelled robot. You twist it into several configurations for smaller items, larger items, or items that you want to elevate off the surface of the table. You can also use it to hold pot lids upside down so they don't drip on the counter.
I already have a few trivets, but I like this for holding large cookie sheets. Right now I tend to use cooling racks, which is fine if I'm not baking a lot. But if I'm doing a whole lot of baking, I need my racks for the baked goods and not just for holding the hot baking pans and cookie sheets.
And, unlike some other trivets, this is attractive. It will come in different finishes with different colors of silicone for the grippy portions.
Trivae isn't available now, but it should be for sale soon - it's on Kickstarter and has already surpassed its goal, but there's still time to add your funds and get your rewards.
There are some videos and more photos on Kickstarter that will give you a better idea of how it works - and if I get my hands on one, I'll have a final review here.
What do you think? Is it worth funding? Worth buying?
