I'm really contemplating investing in a better cake leveler. I know a lot of people have talked about the Agbay. I'm wondering if it's really necessary to purchase the double blade leveler. I know it would make it convenient to level and torte the cake at the same time, but I figure it wouldn't take that much to level the cake with the single blade and then re-adjust it to torte. Wouldn't it be just as good to purchase the single blade leveler?
Also, are they any other high quality cake levelers that I should consider before making a purchase?
I bought the single blade agbay about a year ago... it is amazing and I wouldn't ever use anything else. I love love love my agbay!
however, hindsight is 20/20 and if I were to buy another one - I'd get the double. It's not difficult to change the setting - just tedious, especially if you have a lot of cakes to push through (such as multi tiered wedding cakes).
just my humble opinion
I agree with Deana, I have a single blade love it, but I think that I would have enjoyed the double...I think it depends on how seriously you are going to work at this....
I can live with a single certainly...and really it would have been overkill for me to spend more for the amount of cakes I make and don't get paid for!!
I don't think that there is anything else out there, better than that!
I have the double-blade and love love LOVE it. It's so easy to level and torte at the same time. I'm sure the single-bladed model is just as good, it would just take a little longer, but no big deal. Either way you go, I don't think you'll find a better leveling tool. Certainly not Wilton's...obviously! (just thrown in there as a side note vent... )
