Such a fun and useful idea! Looks cute and actually makes a stable and heat resistant trivet.

I bought a tin for myself when I was in the Container Store picking up stocking stuffers for my adult children. I used them on Christmas Eve and everyone got a kick out of them while marveling at how well they handled the task of being a trivet. The next day, my daughter-in-law was hoping that a set was in her stocking ( which it wasn't). I told her she needn't worry as I will purchase one for her when I go back to get more for myself. Love them!

I purchased these last year in black for myself and subsequently purchased another 4 sets for gifts which were always delightfully received. My current purchase was done on behalf of my girlfriend who saw them at my home and wanted a set too. She would have preferred black as well but only red was available.
The main disadvantage of these is stopping the dinner guests from playing with them before the hot bowls are brought to the table! They really are fun to use and requires so very little storage space.

These are so much fun to play with and easy to toss on the counter. They are steady and I didn't feel the pot was in any danger of falling. So fun I bought 4 more for Christmas stocking stuffers. I love the color.

Besides being so useful, this trivet proved to be a great conversation starter. After a few very funny guesses about what it was, everyone agreed it was the perfect trivet for any size hot pan.

Was able to serve various shaped & sized dishes beautifully at Thanksgiving dinner with these trivets. Trivets are simple & space saving to store. Fun little talking piece to add to your table too!! So thankful to see they were available to purchase online & ship this year (unfortunately don't live in a state with a Container Store).

When I saw these in the Holiday catalog, I went to the store specifically to buy these. While they were out of stock - dozens of people beat me to the store - I placed an in-store order for them and I had them a few days later. They were absolutely worth the wait!
On the functional "it's a trivet" side of things, while they're a little bit smaller than I expected - approx. 3/4" across - they worked beautifully. I've put everything from a fairly full tea kettle to a large Le Creuset dutch on them and the pots were stable and even. "Simply tossing" a few out on the counter or table is a nice idea but in reality, a little arranging is recommended... at least by me. (It's been a long time since I played Jacks so it is possible that my "tossing" skills are a bit rusty.)
On the "cute" side of it, the picture is all you need. It's how you got here, isn't it? They're just plain seriously cute. The packaging is perfect - a small round tin that tucks nicely into a stocking or makes an unexpected small gift. When they're not in use, the tin is easy to store and more durable than a small box.
So if you're buying these as a gift, don't forget to get a tin - or three - for yourself.

I put them in the drawer beside my oven. It's so easy to pull them out and "roll" them on the counter with one hand and place the hot dish on them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dutchsmom They were so cute, I had to have them..
I first saw the tumbling trivet in your holiday ad. They caught my eye immediately, and I ordered 2 sets for myself and 2 as gifts. They are so easy to use, and clean up/storage a cinch. Hardest thing was not using them for Thanksgiving, as one of my guests will be getting a set as a stocking stuffer.

Perfect as a stocking stuffer or inexpensive gift. Makes a sturdy base for hot dishes of all sizes just by tossing on the counter. Takes up hardly any space.
