Which turn table you use?? - Page 2

post #16 of 30
I have a tv turntable - cost me $5 and works a treat!

I have the cheap wilton one and the wilton professional turn table. They both work fine for me but I use the cheap $12 one the most. I guess being short the height thing is not a problem for me. LOL

I have the Wilton professional and I haven't ever had any problems with it. I guess I'd better get my level out when I get home and make sure it is level. Surely, SURELY I would have figured that out by now! icon_biggrin.gif

I have an Ateco too and it's great, but I find that I use this one most of the time. It was only 15.99 plus shipping, and the retailer was really fast. icon_smile.gif

Where do you get the Ateco one at? I do have one from Wilton when I took the classes but I am tall and it gives me back ache. The Instructor at the classes told us to put it on top of big container but it has to be a flat surface to be able to turn smoothly. I really need a tall turntable.

Pardon my ignorance but why would you need an electric? I've never seen one, what does it do different than a regular non electric one? icon_redface.gif

OMG...I tried the IKEA lazy susan for a while, too low. The Wilton one's seemed cheap and flimsy. Then reading the posts in the forum I ordered the Fat Daddio's......WOW. Best investment I ever made. Decorating is a snap now, it's the perfect height too and spins like a dream. If you order it online go thru someone who has free shipping though. I think it's 18 pounds!

The Ateco cast iron turn table is great! Can absolutely recommend it.

Wilton professional. I've never had any issues with it. It spins nicely and is really sturdy. It does not tilt. I'm willing to pay the $30 (when using 50% off) for it unlike the more expensive Ateco ones.

My husband is actually making one for me as we speak. I have a little round plastic Wilton one. But it's too small for the square cakes that I'm making. So we went to Lowe's and bought some wood, a lazy susan, a piece of stone, some screws, and some grout stuff to hold the wood to the stone.

So from the bottom up it will be a piece of wood, lazy susan, piece of wood, grout, stone. It cost about $35. And it's going to be an 18x18 square.

I was just going to order one from Global Sugar because they have some really good ones that you can flip over (rectangle on one side and round on the other side). But it was going to take too long to get it.

I'll let ya know how it turns out!

I have the reversible one like on the Global sugar art site and I would highly recommend it. I have the high one. It is wonderful. There is not one downside to it as far as I am concerned. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

because elsctric turns all by itself! I ice my cakes with a big bag and the big icing tip. It takes me 2 hands to handle that bag, no hands left to turn the table. Then I keep it sppinning to smoothe out the icing, it's awesome! It also has a variable speed control.

I have the Ateco cast stand as well. I've put full sheets and completely stacked three tier cakes on it and it still spins smoothly. It was well worth the money.
