Curious why a cast iron trivet is better than one of those cheap $2.00 pot coasters?

For a countertop? Looks, that's about it. These are great for cooking on wood/pellet stoves.

That's correct. I have it and it's all iron. No rubber feet.

Higher temperature.
I recently bought a roccbox oven, and the first time I took out a cast iron pan from the oven to rest, it melted my oven-safe silicon mat and glued it to the bottom. I immediately ordered this old mountain trivet.

That might be a problem for insulation, while the cast iron can withstand heat, it is also a conductor and the legs getting hot may scorch the countertop or whatever surface you're using it on.

Not to worry.
Cast iron is a relatively poor heat conductor within metal. It gets a bit warm, but not hot.
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

That’s like a silicone s’mores. How do you like the roccbox? Been debating between it and a ooni.

The trivet is untreated so any moisture hitting it will end up in rust, as it’s also not perfectly flat (the design) you won’t get that perfect sear. So it will work but it’s not optimal esp long term due to it being untreated.

I think I paid $60 something for my Weber cast iron insert and it still looks good after years of usage including right above the chimney.

Roccbox works as advertised. Excellent product overall.
I chose roccbox because of better build quality and insulation.
