Wooden Amish Lazy Susans
Amish Lazy Susans
DutchCrafters Lazy Susans are Amish handcrafted from solid hardwood. They rotate and are the perfect option for the kitchen table, dining table or kitchen counter. Use our turntable Lazy Susans to hold condiments such as salt and pepper as well as napkins.
Lazy Susans are usually circular or round but we do offer square Lazy Susan as well as triangle shaped Lazy Susans. Lazy Susans are very popular overseas especially in China where dishes are shared at restaurants instead of individual ordering.
History of the Lazy Susan
It is not known exactly who this Susan was, why this tableware was named after her and whether she was lazy or not. Did a lazy servant named Susan really inspire this furniture accessory to be named after her? If the servant name Susan was so lazy then someone likely came up with the Lazy Susan so that Susan could be fired. It is doubtful but does make for an interesting story line. What we do know about the history of the Lazy Susan is that it has been around since the early 1900s when it was first advertised in a Vanity Fair magazine. The text in the magazine described the Lazy Susan as “the cleverest waitress in the world.”
