Hot or Not: Kuhn Magnetic Trivet

Trivets are the alarm clocks of the kitchen design world; every designer wants to try. This means there are many modern and creative trivets, like this one from Kuhn. It's magnetic, so it stays attached to the bottom of the pot as you carry it from the kitchen to the table.

We think this is pretty cool, but as usual you may notice some major practical flaw we have overlooked. What's your take? Purchase info and more trivets below...
