Lazy Susan or previously called the ‘Dumbwaiter’, unlike what the name suggests, is actually one of the most hard working piece of furniture in the kitchen.
A rotating tray that is circular, it was originally designed to be placed on a table or countertop, but is increasingly being fitted into corner cabinets and shelves that are generally inaccessible. They help in moving food and dishes around, and this becomes useful when it isn’t possible to access all sides of a cabinet or table.
