A lazy susan is a revolving tray that is used to store food or other items. The tray always rotates in the same direction, and it can be placed on any flat surface. This rotating device makes it easy for people to reach what they want without having to bend over or get up.
The name “lazy susan” comes from the fact that the tray can be rotated with one hand while you are sitting at a table, making it easier to access the food on the tray.
Lazy Susans are so named because the condiments are always within arm’s reach no matter where you stand around the table. Also, since the Lazy Susan is on wheels, it has a tendency to keep spinning if you ever push against it, and so it is possible to “become lazy”.
A lazy susan is a turntable used to rotate food or other items in a cabinet or on a table. The name lazy susan is thought to have originated in the early 1800s. There are many stories about how the name came about, but the most likely explanation is that it was simply a brand name that became popular.
