Which turn table you use??

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hello there,

I just started my cake bussiness and buy everything local craft stores. Idon't know where else to buy. I want I turn table to ice and decorate the cakes. I saw the wilton ones, they have 2: the "professional turn table" (wich is made of metal)and the tilting turn table (wich is made of plastic). I like the tilting one, but I'm affraid it won't hold a big heavy cake. I have a 50% off coupon and don't want to use it to buy one and doesn't work. Does any body has any suggestion?

thanks,

Veronica

I have an Ateco one (cast iron stand and metal turntable) which seems similar to the Wilton professional...I"d definitely go for the professional one.

Don't buy Wilton. I had the tilting Wilton turntable and it came close to dumping a few of my cakes. Certainly don't use it anymore. thumbs_up.gif Since I work in a kitchen store I have heard many others with similar stories. I suggest the Ateco metal one if you can afford it thumbs_up.gif or a wooden one that Ikea makes. Drawback on Ikea it is low on the table and prefer one that lifts the cake up to save your back. Hope that helps.

My wilton gives me fits. ( ok it does turn and cakes dont slide on the surface) It is not level and thows me off every time. I use my lazy susan most of the time.

I have the plain Wilton and I've never had a problem with it, I hate Wilton but I can really lie about it, I got it with my first Wilton class 5 years ago and still works but it's not the tilted one.

Thank you all for your oppinions. They both are $69.99 each one. They are not cheap that's why I was unsure if to buy it or not.

I bought the cheap Wilton one, I think it was like 12.99 or something. It's made of plastic and it does not tilt. I was nervous of getting the tilting one, it seemed dangerous. ANyway... I haven't had any problem with the one I got. I've made a total of 5 wedding cakes, 4 had a 12 in round or square and the last one was a 16 in square, no problems here!

Good luck!

Yeap, that's the one I have, couldn't remember how much I paid but sounds about right!

I have the cheap Wilton one too. It works fine.

I don't use the turntable that much anymore...I've figured out a trick for getting my fondant nice on the bottom edge but it doesn't work on the turntable.

I use the cheap wilton turntable too! I'm on my second one, the first one rusted (ball bearings on the bottom) after a few years. I bought the wilton professional one, but it didn't turn smoothly and appeared to be not level when spun??!!, so i returned it. That said, the Ateco's been on my wishlist for awhile now, so if you can afford it, go for it!

I purchased the Wilton tilting turntable and returned it after a cake slid off of it. I also purchased (and returned) the Wilton professional one because it did not seem even. I now use the cheap one I bought for a class or a wooden one that was in my cabinet ("lazy Susan")--however, both are low and I want one with some height! icon_cry.gif I may look at the Fat Daddio's or Ateco since people who have purchased them seem pretty happy! Global Sugar Art also has a reversible one (different sizes on top and bottom). All I know is I need a good one that is not low!

Fat Daddio is the way to go. Their turntable is great and well worth the money.

I also have the Wilton tilting one and it's not made for heavy cakes, almost lost a couple also. I also have an electric one I bought on ebay, it doesn't tilt, but electric is the way to go. It makes it all so easy.....
