When I opened this package I was so excited to look inside. Comparing to turntables I have seen and worked with this one would be the best looking. The bottom has a non-slip surface to make sure your turntable stays locked in place. You don't have to worry about placing your cakes directly on it, It is made from a good grade aluminum alloy. The rotation is very smooth which is thanks to the stainless steel bearings, this cake turntable is well built. I almost don't want to use as a turntable and more like a stand only. It's a beautifully crafted and well packaged. I like to store it back into the box after I am done using it. I would extremely recommend this product if you're looking for a high quality, elegant turntable at a great price. Looking forward to purchasing from you again.
