Lazy Susan cabinet… What do you put in there?

I'm renovating my kitchen, and am anticipating reorganizing where I store things. I have a Lazy Susan cabinet, and I'm wondering what other people use theirs for. They are sort of awkward to access, so I don't want to keep anything that I'm going to use frequently in there. I don't like keeping really small things in there, because there's a tendency for them to fall off the side of the carousel, and then jam up the whole mechanism. Thanks in advance for your help

My last kitchen had a lazy susan where I put larger items such as a mixer, pots & pans, juicer, toaster ... etc.

I was looking through the products section and found this for Lazy Susan storage. Anything I put in traditional Lazy Susan storage is lost :( This might help keep items from falling and looks easier to access.

It's an existing, pretty standard lazy susan, with a pole in the middle and low sides. Can't change it.

Right now I have my pantry items on the two-shelf lazy Susan, but like you, want to find a better use for them as 3/4 of items are always out of sight. Hope someone has better ideas to post.

I have found my lazy susan to be the perfect place to keep my 9x12 glass baking dishes, glass casseroles, glass pie plates, glass loaf pans, things like that. I can stack several on top of each other and it really holds a lot. That way nothing ever falls off in the back or falls over when you spin it around.

My lazy susan has little rails on the sides that prevent things from falling off very easily. I think it is from ikea (previous owners put in).
I keep my plastic containers stacked and also large casseroles and mixing bowls in my lazy susan. I use a plate stacker rack to store the plastic lids. My access to the lazy susan cabinet has a hinged door that opens up all the way so it is much easier to see everything. At my old house I stored pantry items and things were always getting lost.

I use it for weird large things like ice tea maker (stored for when father-in-law visits), Dutch oven, potato ricer, large pitchers and the like. The top shelf has snack trays and two cookie jars (filled) where the kids can grab a cookie, but I don't have to look at them.

This discussion's prompted me to re-think what I have stored on (in?) my lazy Susan. Time to re-organize. Thanks, all.

Since mine (also Ikea as someone above) is near the sink I use it for measuring cups, colanders (I have a lot in different sizes), extra honey, maple syrup, various oils, steel cut oatmeal, my salad spinner, steamer inserts, and some things that I don't use often. I don't like to load it down heavily.
