The Blazy Susan revitalizes a love for Lazy Susans
Finding a neat new cannabis-related gadget every month is already proving to be a bit of a challenge, so it was with great interest when I got a promotional email seeing if I would be interested in checking out something called the Blazy Susan, a Lazy Susan rolling tray.
A “Sure!” and a week later, I was had a box packed with CNC’d plywood Lazy Susan with a robust ball-bearing swivel plate packed with pink packing paper, pink rolling papers and a bunch of neat silicon add-ons that fit in the Blazy Susan’s cutouts.
It wasn’t until putting the thing together that it really dawned on me that I don’t really have a space in my home for the dedicated set up, but I set it up on a side table near a couch and, honestly, I was more impressed than I thought I would be.
Coming from a cramped notebook-sized rolling tray to something much bigger makes a world of difference in getting a good rolled joint and the various compartments made it easier not to see flower disappear into the carpet.
And, perhaps critically, the rest of the tray made for an excellent holder for snacks and a beverage. I think, really, I’m just a fan of Lazy Susans and need more of them in my life.
The cannabis-related branding, including the branded silicon mat in the middle, can be removed, but I still felt the need to stash it away when the in-laws visited, which can be a bit unwieldy for the hubcap-sized tray.
It might not be the best fit for me, but I could definitely see how it would have a place at a party or a more 420-heavy household.
Ultimately, what I found myself using the most was the silicon ash tray with a nifty built-in bowl cleaner (available separately for $10 in a variety of colors). It works very well, and the trapezoidal shape makes it very easy to carry with you for an outdoor smoke session.
I found the dab insert, which looks more like an office pen organizer, a little more befuddling to use but then again, I’m not much of a dabber.
I found the pink rolling papers just as good as any rolling paper you’ll find out there, except for they’re pink (I believe they also are available in a colorless version).
Would I buy one of these for myself? Honestly, maybe. Even with my hang ups with its size and hide-ability, I think I just really like Lazy Susans after this. The ash tray is a definite recommendation on its own.
A sample of the Blazy Susan and accessories was provided to us. The Blazy Susan is available at https://blazysusan.com/ from $100 in a variety of materials and finishes. A very pretty walnut one starts at $145.
