Lazy Susans for your corner cabinets come in several shapes and sizes. The most confusing of the shapes are the Kidney Shaped and Pie Cut Lazy Susans.

Kidney Shaped Lazy Susans

Kidney Shaped Lazy Susans are used for “L”-shaped corner cabinets where the door is attached to the cabinet and the Lazy Susan moves independently of the door. The inner corner of the cutout area can be curved on some Kidney-Shaped Lazy Susans.

Pie Cut Lazy Susans
