Primarily designed to protect the shiny stainless steel hob covers of your AGA or ESSE cooker to help conserve the heat in the ovens, these sturdy pads also make excellent placemats or fabric trivets to protect your work surfaces from hot pans.
The covers comprise four layers – unlike most commercially produced pads which have only three. The top is a sturdy cotton with a canvas-like quality; the next layer down is cotton or bamboo wadding; next we have an insulated wadding and finally the mats are backed with thick towelling.
The decoration on the top is the Manx emblem of three legs or Triskelion and is appliquéd to the surface. The covers are then quilted, to avoid shrinkage or mis-shaping when washed. Finally the covers are bound and hand finished.
Speaking of washing – I recommend they are swished clean by hand if necessary, rinsed well and left to dry on the AGA or ESSE hob and gently pulled to shape.
The covers are approximately 14” in diameter and come in sets of two.
Only one set available at the moment.
