Need to vent! wilton tilting turn table - Page 2

post #16 of 35
I bought it, hated it at first. My son suggested that I take the leftover safety strips I bought for the bathtub and apply them. They work great!

Well, I'm bummed that so many people hate the thing becuase I was going to use my 50% coupon at Michael's tomorrow and buy it. I just thought there had to be a better way to do sidework without lifting the cake. Oh well....

I'm sorry... that turntable is the cheapest, most overpriced yet useless thing Wilton has ever made ( IMHO, of course).

I exchanged it for the metal one and bought a roll of non-slip and cut several circles... 1 to place under the turntable, one for on top of the turner under the cake and a long piece to roll and slide under the front to create a 'tilt'.... works so much better than the other one!

OK--that's an idea, CakeDiva. Maybe I'll try that instead of (what seems like) wasting my (hubby's icon_wink.gif ) hard-earned money on the tilting one.

Thanks for the idea!

I've had the turntable for a few years and I haven't had a problem with it. icon_smile.gif

I've always wanted one. But, after hearing too many horror stories about them, I haven't taken the plunge. I have a Rubbermaid spice turntable that I use.

so for those of you who have the metal professional turntable- that one is good? I have the plastic one and it works okay but I was wondering if I should "upgrade" to the metal one - or do you think it's not really an upgrade & I should stay w/ plastic?

I bought that turntable when it first came out and returned it after my wedding cake slide right off the side! I also wrote to Wilton and gave them a earful of complaints. they coulndt understand why the cake slide off. They said it shouldn't have...... I have a differnt one now

I've been using a very smooth running marble one that I bought for $15.00 Cdn at Benix (Kitchen supply store), with non skid mat. I like it but I was considering the Wilton tilter for sides. (Now sounds like a bad plan.)
Plan B:
Home Depot has some very good turntable bases to make yourself one and I think it would be really good because you can make it chest level for doing the sides...still thinking on that.

2 of the 3 cakes that I used the tilting function have slid off of the cake board. The cakeboard stays on great though!! Luckily I was able to save them both with too much damage. I like the idea, but it just doesnt work that great

I have both, the non tilting and tilting. No problems with either one. I do make sure that I have the cake secure on the cake board before I put it on the tilting table. I let mine set for 15 to 20 minutes before I start the icing process. never had a cake fall off yet. Just love it.

with all the horror stories I'm hearing about this tilting turntable I'm wondering why more people do not contact wilton and vent to them maybe they will then take it seriously that this turntable needs improving. I know some said they like it but it seems the majority dont. Maybe they should do a product recall and give a discount on a better model or something along that line so all their customers will not be losing all their hard earned cash and remain loyal wilton customers. Just a thought.

I have two--no...make that three different turntables!

My fave is hard to describe. It's completely FLAT, white and has scallops around the edge. It was cheap as all get out, too!

The tilting turntable by Wilton is nice, though. Overpriced? Yes. But I feel like I need it when I'm doing pressed sidework, strings, etc.

I do have to be careful, though to turn the grain AGAINST the way my cake will be setting on the thing! icon_rolleyes.gif

Not being fond of the Wilton offerings I bought an Ateco some time ago. This thing could support Godzilla and his cousins without blinking, lol.

Hi. I was wondering where some of you bought your metal turntables you've mentioned. How much do they generally run? Thanks!
