I have the Wilton Tilt-N-Turn Ultra Turntable (the new model retails for $80--I used a 50% off Michaels coupon) and I love it for the times that I need to tilt a cake to decorate.


What I use most is a large lazy susan--mine is 18" across--that cost me about $10.  It turns very smoothly on it's ball bearing, it's heavy, and suits my needs well.


I had a "professional" Ateco turntable for about 10 mins.--no ball bearings, the top didn't lock to the base, and it wobbled.  It was returned summarily.

i have the heavy Ateco (~$65) that has a pin on the bottom of the plate that fits into the base.  It turns well, but when you put weight on it it doesn't keep spinning well.  I wasn't happy with that.  I just got the Fat Daddios table with ball bearings that will keep moving a lot longer with minimal prompting.  While I haven't had a huge amount of weight on it, I am really happy with it so far.  I'd give it a thumbs_up.gif
