Turntables?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I need a new turntable, mine is getting a bit shaky. So far any I have looked at have a bit of give in them therefore don't sit perfectly level with weight on them. Any recommendations? Has anyone tried the Wilton tilting or the Professional?

I have the little Wilton turntable (only stands about 1" off table) and I love it (I actually have 2 of them) - this is a great turntable for all size cakes.

I just got a new turntable made by Ateco, it has Ateco 612 stamped on it. I love it - it is about 4" off of the table. This is very sturdy and well-made. My husband bought it for me for my birthday, I think he paid about $69. Hope this helps...

I have the Wilton Professional and it's crap, it's wobbles and doesn't spin smoothly. I got the Fat Daddio's one and I LOVE it!

I don't have anything professional, but I do have two (different) wooden lazy susans that make fantastic turntables --the ball bearings are so smooth... They have large bases and hold a lot of weight. Just an "out of the box" suggestion in case you don't want to spend a lot of money.

They were in charge of the bread set out on the table, the flour for the grain offerings, the unleavened wafers, the baking and the mixing, and all measurements of quantity and size.

Where did you find the wooden turn table if you don't mind me asking. I have been looking for one and unable to find it anywhere. TIA

I have the Wilton Tilting Turntable and it's excellent for working on the sides of the cake. It has the rubber not-slip top and the cakes don't slip! Sometimes it's actually a little difficult sliding the cake off! It can get a little wobbly when there is a heavy cake on top but it works pretty decent.

I just put a piece of non skid shelf liner on top of my Fat Daddios and nothing moves icon_smile.gif I've heard of the tilting turntables coming loose and cakes falling off of them.

I have also...which makes me afraid of getting one, as handy as it would be!
I have the cheapy Wilton one and I put a large wooden board on it (1/2 sheet size) for support, on top of the rubber non-slip mat and it works fine for now...dreaming of getting a nicer one, someday!! (Maybe if Maryland makes it legal for me to sell cakes I'll take the plunge! LOL!)

Edited to add that I think, I think, I paid 7.99... One of my best purchases ever!

Thanks everyone, that answers my question. I will have a look for the Fat Daddio one, I know they have very good cake pans. I have the turntable from IKEA, it was $9.99 here in Canada, it's good for the large cakes but still has a slight wiggle. I level my cakes while they are on the counter but still feel like it's a bit crooked though it's only the turntable's slight tilt that makes them look that way. I would like to have one that is rock solid.

I went to Menards and got the turntable bearing and my husband made me a corian turntable with it. The bearing unit will handle 1000 pounds so I don't think I will even have to large of a cake for it to handle. hehehe
Thanks,

As far as professional turntables, Ateco, Bakery Crafts, the old line, been around forever companies make great ones.

Anything W is more than likely crap. There have been soooo many reports of cakes falling off those cray W tilting turntables.
