Should I send this back? My brother got it for me for a small christmas gift and when I spin it, you can clearly see it wobbling.

The reason I ask, is that I don't know the ratio of how smooth one of these should be. Although I can't exactly explain how wobbly it is, I would say you have to get eye level with it to really see that it is clearly uneven when it spins. It's not like you can see it from an overview.

It should be perfectly smooth.

And I find it funny to read the words "Wilton" and "professional" in the same sentence.

mmm, no, sorry.

You can get real turntables from Fat Daddios, Ateco, Bakery Crafts.

The Wilton turntable costs as much as the other ones...for $50 or $60 it should be good enough...but I bought one a couple of years ago and it had the wobble. I took it back and got the store employees to open the other three that the store had on hand, and they all had a wobble to them, except for one that had a weird bump as it turned. I gave up at that point and just returned it.

Does it just need to be greased?

No, I just took the plate part off and set it on a level surface. It actually was made uneven.

I'll just get my money back.

Thanks for all the post.

I hate mine too. Finally got a good lazy Susan and it works beautifully!
