Looking for a good , solid, Â reliable turntable. ( for heavy 12 " cakes Â and smaller )
Do they need to tilt for pipping , or is it just as easy to be upright.?
Worried tilting will affect stability
Any recommendations , ?
I have an Ateco pedestal turning decorating stand, but my favorite to use is a wooden IKEA lazy susan, it's great for large cakes.
AThis is from Indy Debs website, towards the middle of the page is a review of a turntable that she recommends.
I'm planning on ordering this one, I hate the one I have it's just too flimsy but it was a cheap replacement. I don't know about the tilting kinds, I saw the one Wilton has and thought about purchasing it but I worried about the same thing. I'd put the money into a nice one, otherwise you'll end up with a few unstable turntables. There's also one from Ateco (I think that's the brands name) it seems very sturdy and durable.
AThat's what IndyDebs link is to, it's a nice lazy susan with a ceramic type top! I was using my aunts but she took it back and I've been looking for another one for ages!
Here's a link for the IKEA lazy susanÂ
i also have an ateco. its had 16 years of use and is still the same. the base is heavy/sturdy and there has never been any rust on Â it.
We use the Ateco 12" and 18" cast iron base turntables. It is difficult to find the 18" size. But buy all you can when you do.
I was looking at the Fat Diddio's Â Pro Â 12 " Â with a cast iron base and an aluminium top ( Ball Bearing turn ) seems to have very good reviews and sold out in a lot of online stores.
Will now hunt down the ateco,
Thanks for your help.
Another vote for Ateco!

That's mine! LOVE IT.
I love the Fat Daddio's with the ball bearings. Â I have the center spike Ateco and when there is considerable weight on it, it looses speed enough not to make a full revolution without another push/pull. Â The FD one will keep turning.Â
I have the IKEA wood one, and I don't know if I have an off one, but I get a wobble and it isn't engineered to stay level. Not that I'd expect a >$10 turntable to be able to stand up to a level, but this is not a precision tool.
