Lazy Susan Turntable

A lazy susan turntable, often called just a lazy susan, is a device that is fit on dining tables, usually at the center. This is a revolving turntable.

The lazy susan can be rotated around a vertical axis. The convenience provided by these turntables is quite immense, because any person sitting on any place around the table can simple rotate the turntable to get the things that are placed on top of it.

They do not need to disturb others by asking them to pass stuff around the table and nor do they need to reach out to get at things.
