I know the Ateco has been around for a long time and is very good, but has anyone tried the Fat Daddio? They look very similar, but the price is quite a bit less for the Fat Daddio. Has anyone used it?
Thanks for any advice.
I love my FAt Daddio turntable!
I just got my Fat Daddy for Christmas and used it for a cake yesterday. LOVE IT!!!! So smooth turning, it's like a dream.
Of course, my only point of comparison before that was the cheap-o Wilton turn table.
wilton big professional one is same as ateco -- and can get for 40% or more off with coupons at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, A.C. Moore.
I did just that and love using it (tho' dread day I drop the base -- so heavy it's going to noticeable damage to whatever it lands on.
link to wilton's turntable:
we've had both, and I prefer our Fat Daddios.
I have a Fat Daddio's. I think I kissed it goodnight the first night it spent in the studio. Dang it's heavy though. Sooooo heavy.
I have a cheap wilton. The more I use it, the worse it gets. It leans to one side now. Thought it was great when I first got it but didn't know any better back then. I really need to invest in a good one.
So it wont answer your question but it will give you another option. I actually use a lazy susan for my cakes. I have a large one that I use the bigger cakes on and a medium one that I use for the smaller cakes. I think I had the wilton one years ago and hated it. I love the lazy susan.
I ordered a Fat Daddio's turntable from Amazon, and it worked like a dream. Unfortunately, during shipping the base was so scratched I couldn't get past the aesthetic despite how well it worked. I had just missed the sale too when Amazon was selling it for $12!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How insane!
Thanks everyone - all great advice. It's helpful to hear from people who have used them.
Thanks too Doug - I wasn't even aware Wilton made the big heavy one. Thought just the plastic ones everyone complains about.
