Tip from tradesman fixing kitchen stand (6)


I believe the answer is:


'kitchen stand' is the definition.
(stand for a pot)

'tip from tradesman fixing' is the wordplay.
'tip from' indicates taking the first letters.
'fixing' becomes 'rivet' (a rivet fixes things in place).
The initial letter of 'tradesman' is 't'.

(Other definitions for trivet that I've seen before include "That's right!" , "Tripodal base for kitchen appliances" , "Support for kettle or pot over a fire" , "Stand for hot vessel" , "Metal stand, proverbially right" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
