I bought one of the metal Wilton ones recently, and it had a wobble. I took it back and tried the other three they had in the store. Two had wobbles, and the third wouldn't turn. At that point I got a refund and just stuck with my old plastic one.

So you can pull the table part off to grease it but when you put it back it won't spin? Is there anything inside that it's catching on?

I know it's too lake now but in the future, check them before you leave. I bought and Ateco plastic one that just didn't look right. I was trying to ice a cake and everything looked wonky. Finally I put a level on it and saw that it wasn't level. So my sweet DH took it back for me and sprung for the really nice, heavy duty turntable that spins so smoothly if you didn't see it you wouldn't know it was moving! Love that man!

Does the catalog company have a no return policy? I'd be sending that bad boy right back - paying return shipping won't cost near $60! icon_wink.gif

Good luck!

Have you tried using a silicone spray? Not sure if it's better/worse/same as oil, but it's what I used on my turntable. I sprayed it on the bearings & just spun it a bunch of times to work it in.

I have a heavy duty Ateco turntable that I washed, I re-assembled it before it was completely dry so it rusted and got stuck. It took a lot of effort to get it apart again (hubby) but eventually we got it loose. I brushed off the rust and used WD-40 on it, and it has been working just fine since. I don't wash it in the sink anymore, just wipe it down, so hopefully it won't happen again.
