Pro Organizers Shared Their 11 Favorite Lazy Susans — And We’ve Never “Added to Cart” So Fast
There’s nothing worse than not being able to find something you need because you can’t see it, therefore wasting space and causing unnecessary chaos while meal prepping or cooking. Lazy Susans are the solution. The unsuspecting household products are surprisingly game-changing for storage and organization — especially in your kitchen. A lazy Susan’s rotating design and functionality makes items like jars, condiments, cans, and spices (just to name a few) easily accessible in hard-to-reach areas. With a lazy Susan, you can quickly scan and spin to find what you need and notice when you’re running low on any essentials in the pantry, the fridge, or on your countertop.
There are dozens of different types of turntable organizers on the market — so we asked pro organizers and home design experts for their favorite lazy Susan picks for all different types of spaces and household needs. Here’s what they recommend.

Other Lazy Susan Considerations
Clearly, there are seemingly endless types, sizes, and styles of lazy Susans to fit your needs, organizational preferences, and space constraints. Nicole Gabai, founder of B. Organized and the author of The Art of Organizing: An Artful Guide to an Organized Life, says you should always measure your cabinet or fridge to make sure you’re getting lazy Susans that will fit.
She also suggests opting for low-profile lazy Susans without large lips when you can, as they often make it harder to retrieve things. For optimal organization, Gabai suggests theming your lazy Susans, like dedicating one for hot and spicy items, another for herbs and spices, and another for canned goods and bottles that often get pushed to the back of a shelf (and then get lost and forgotten). “Grouping these items makes it easy to see what you have stored and reach what you need,” she says. So, which of these are you adding to your cart?
