Porcelain seal provides greater resistance to water, rust, and heat than traditional powder-coated cast-iron products
Wrightsville, PA (July 2016) – John Wright Company, Inc., one of America’s oldest continuously-operating designers and manufacturers of cast-iron hardware and home accents has launched a line of classic cast-iron, porcelain-coated trivets. Resistant to rusting, chipping, and temperature damage, the Lattice Trivet is a durable and long-lasting home accent, perfect for holding hot kettles or as a decorative dining table centerpiece.
The Lattice Trivet is designed to reflect the original cast-iron trivets produced by American foundries in the 1850s but with the added benefits of porcelain coating. This improves upon the innate durability and strength of cast-iron by providing a water-resistant seal to prevent rust, damage, or breakage.
“The Lattice Trivet’s porcelain coat not only provides a water-resistant seal to prevent rust, but it can also withstand much higher temperatures than other powder coatings or paints,” says Brant Hershey, Engineering Manager at John Wright. “It’s a piece that’s as artistic as it is useful.”
These trivets feature a classic lattice pattern and can be specified in a variety of colors (Forest Green, Colonial Blue, Green Majolica, Apple Red, Almond Cream, Jet Black and Matte Black). Because of the porcelain coating, their color will not fade over time.
The Lattice Steamer measures 10 ¼” wide with a 7 ½” diameter and weighs 3.0 lbs. Prices for this piece vary by color, ranging from $19.90 – $32.60.
