The Petromax Dutch Oven lid support/trivet is perfect to place a lid on top of when cooking with a Dutch Oven. With the trivet you can safely put the hot lid aside while cooking. In addition, the lid will stay warmer longer because it won't immediately come into contact with the surface below. Serve your dish in the Dutch Oven on the table without damaging the surface. You can also place the lid upside down on the holder. If the lid is hot enough you can fry an egg on the insides, a fun addition. Made from galvanized steel.
