The history of the lazy susan, or turntable, can be dated back centuries as a way to serve food to a large group of people. It is speculated that the original term used for a lazy susan was "dumb waiter", as referenced in an 18th century British magazine article used to describe how some "silent machines" had replaced servants serving food to guests. "Dumb waiter" was later used more widely in reference to a small elevator used to transport food between floors. It is also widely thought that Thomas Jefferson introduced the turning serving tray (lazy susan) to America from France, but Jefferson never had one in his house at Montecello.
