Our kitchen may be small, but it includes four lazy susans in the corners of the kitchen cabinets. I have mixed feelings about them. On one hand I like that I can turn those shelves to find what I need. On the other hand I don't like how often something catches while I turn the shelves. It cause things to fall, and make a general mess of what ever shelf the thing that got caught was on.
In the upper cabinets, my favorite lazy susan is the one that houses our fun baking supplies. Spices such as cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Baking soda and powder as well as clear gel and tapioca all have their rightful spot in there. But what makes it so pretty is all the baking extras. The sanding sugars, cake decorating supplies, and cupcake liners. Rosie Mae used to make a lot of cupcakes and we had just replenished her supply of liners a little before she started her new job. Cupcakes are few and far between now, so those liners will last for a long time. At least they're pretty.
The second lazy susan is where I keep all the spices I use for cooking. Including the blends I mix up and store in cute glass jars. The top shelf is boring with its multivitamins and handful of other supplements we use.
The lazy susans in the bottom cabinets are much bigger. The one has all the bigger baking supplies such as flour, sugars, etc. as well as mixing bowls, colanders etc. And since the cabinetry was so small that there simply wasn't room for proper drawers, I bought a set of small plastic ones to set on the top shelf of this lazy susan as a place to keep my potholders.
The last lazy susan I use more like a pantry for all the other things I need. Olive oil, vinegars, extra condiments, popcorn, and other pantry staples.
Would I choose to add lazy susans to a kitchen if I were the one in charge of designing it? Probably not. But for now they're part of my kitchen, and since I love working in the kitchen I shall also love my lazy susans. At least I'll try.
