Lazy Susan

Food & Wine / Kevin Liang

While the origins of the lazy Susan are hazy, this rotating round tray has been used for decades to help serve food to an entire table without guests having to reach or pass dishes to each other. It's not limited to table service, though. If you’re searching for a smart solution to sifting through a packed cabinet to find a condiment or canned good, smaller versions of these turntables have become a popular and useful organizational tool for cabinets and countertops at home. We compared the features, construction, and overall aesthetics of many lazy Susans on the market before narrowing our list to the following.

Factors to Consider

Size and Shape

When picking out a lazy Susan for organization, you’ll want to consider how much space you have to work with and what you’re trying to keep tidy. It needs to be large enough to be comfortable hold the items you’re organizing, such as canned goods or spices, but not so large that locating smaller items becomes hard. If you’re searching for a turntable to sit on your dining table, you want it to be large enough for people to be able to reach while leaving plenty of room around its edges for place settings. 


The material of your lazy Susan will largely determine how easy it is to keep clean. Metal or marble options will be the easiest to wipe down but tend to be heavier and more costly than their plastic counterparts. Wooden versions should be wiped down with a damp cloth and dried right away to prevent damage to the surface. Plastic turntables can typically be easily cleaned with mild soap and warm water, but you will want to avoid using anything abrasive that will scratch its surfaces. Always be sure to read the care instructions provided by the manufacturer for the final say on how to clean your turntable.

Assembly and Installation

Most turntables come ready to use. For fixed lazy Susans, like the kind that are installed into corner cabinets, you may need to do a little bit work and measuring. Prepare yourself for a DIY install by reading installation instructions thoroughly and gathering all the right tools to ensure secure attachment for your new piece.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How do you measure for a lazy Susan?

    Measure the width, depth, and height of its intended space to find out how much room you have to work with. You’ll want enough clearance so it can turn freely while leaving your cabinet door space to close. So, allow about a half an inch on all sides. For two-tiered and high-walled versions, you want to make sure you can can remove items without running into the shelf above.

  • How do you organize a lazy Susan?

    The easiest way to get started is to store similar items together. For example, spices and seasonings, especially if they’re in identical containers, should live on the same lazy Susan, making it easy to locate the exact one you need. Some lazy Susans are already equipped with dividers, which you can use to sort your wares right away (and add an adhesive label, if you want to take it a step further). Smaller items can also be contained in bins or baskets in order to keep cabinet turntables sorted.
