Whether you're throwing a party, or just want to better organize your home, Lazy Susans provide a versatile, low-cost way to make food and objects easily accessible.
Use one to share condiments at your BBQ or nibbles at your wine tasting evening, organize cupboards and cabinets, or place a Lazy Susan on your worktop to simply brighten up your decor.
Every home could do with a Lazy Susan, and here's how to pick the best one.
How to Choose the Best Lazy Susan for Your Home?
Most Lazy Susans are round by design and they can all spin 360 degrees. That's where the similarities end. Available in a vast array of colors, designs and heights, here's how to choose the best Lazy Susan for your home.
Wood - natural and easy on the eye, wood is a good choice for use in traditional decors. It can also provide an interesting contrast to a modern look as a feature piece. Don't use wood if you are likely to have hot products or items that will stain. Ideal for cold nibbles and decorative purposes.
Plastic - easy to clean and durable, use plastic models indoors and out. However, just be sure that you don't use very hot foods with them. Plastic Lazy Susan's can also be a good low-cost option for use as storage.
Ceramic - complement your traditional, cozy decor with a ceramic Lazy Susan. Ceramic cleans well when enameled, just be aware that it can break easily when dropped, so busy households with large pets and children may want to look at plastic versions.
Glass - Glass Lazy Susans look great in a contemporary setting. They also set the focus firmly on their contents. However, be aware that fingerprints can be an issue, as can breakability.
Metal - if you have an industrial style look going on, or a minimalistic or modern style, you may want to opt for a metal Lazy Susan. They are also extremely hard wearing and robust. Choose treated versions if you are planning to use it outside regularly. Metal versions can also stand up to hot food and BBQing accessories.
