On which surface should I place the press? Does it give off heat downwards? Specifically, I am concerned with my kitchen worktop or desk top, which are made of solid wood or veneer. Is a certain base recommended? (Thanks in advance!)

Hi, Krissi, The press does not get very warm downwards. However, the rubber feet could leave marks when moving the press or standing for a long time. Greeting Anja
