- Design Options
A Lazy Susan is a type of circular tray or turntable that is normally placed on a table or a countertop. It is originally designed for dining tables in order to aid in moving the meals around for the diners regardless of their position in the table.
According to available records, the name “Lazy Susan” was first coined in 1917, after Vanity fair advertisement for a new kitchen product called “Revolving Server or Lazy Susan.” Manufactured by an American company called Ovington, this item is made from mahogany and has a price of $8.50 each.
However, the term is known to predate the item’s actual date of invention. People have been using Lazy Susan ever since the 18th century, though it was often referred to as “dumbwaiters.”
Despite the advent of modern technology, Lazy Susan were able to pass the test of time and its design is continually changing to meet the needs of today’s consumers. In some kitchen remodeling and cabinet refacing companies are making some ways to innovate this product.
If you thought that Lazy Susan are only for dining tables alone. Think again! In case you’re looking for alternative ways in maximizing your kitchen storage, installing Lazy Susan might be a good choice for you!
