Poor design and not heavy duty

It flops, literally and figuratively, because the mold for the silicone makes it hollow underneath instead of solid. Thus the trivet flattens when a moderate to heavy weight is put on it. You will notice the ad only mentions marble or granite countertops, not wood or laminate. Thats because when flattened it is very close to the surface and could scorch or melt. And for what it is, it's over priced even under $10.
It really needs to be solid and about 2-3" wider in diameter, and another 1/8" taller; then it would work for stock and chef's pots, large saute pans, flat bottom woks, pizza pans, etc. As it is, it's not much use for anything other than a small omelet pan. Back to the drawing boards for this one...

This silicone trivet is absolutely the handiest thing I have in the kitchen, so much so I bought 4 and may even buy more. You can't really do without several of these at your handy.

Was a little surprised when I received this item. Had assumed (yes, that word) that the trivet would be a sturdy, rigid item. The "spokes" are stiff, in order to hold heavy weight, however, the silicone material between the spokes is soft, making the overall item kind of floppy.
This does not seem to detract from the use of the trivet, just makes it floppy when you pick it up.
Very attractive BRIGHT red and does hold hot pots and pans well.

I bought several of these trivets let some air circulate around the bottom of the hot pots. Thus, these trivets let the contents in the pot to cool more uniformly. So far, it performed as I hoped.
