Ok haven't been to the website (anyone want to send me a link??) But I'm sure if it took it to be a present from Wonderful Hubby and MIL then it most likely is out of my price range........

Congrats you deserve it!

(goes back to over filling pans to get them to rise above the pan to use as a guideline to cut. Can't even attempt cutting with the leveler by itself)

Ok so I see the original and the deluxe.

Is the deluxe worth it or will the original do the job? Leahs, which one do you have and what's your opinion on this?

I have the original one blade model. It does the job nicely. If i did more cakes then i do, i would have gone with the deluxe but just couldn't justify the extra $$.

It is a fabulous tool and worth every penny to make your life that much easier

I LOVE my AGBAY, I used it hot off the delivery truck, literally...for a wedding I was doing that weekend.

Yes, the price is high, but totally worth it. I torte all my wedding cakes and I have the regular version, it only takes a few seconds to make the adjustment so I really couldn't justify the deluxe version for me.

I had Wilton levelers for years, they are fine for sheet cakes but I personally think they are junk for when you need precise even layers.

I just watched the demo on the site and I was just amazed!! She threw away the top!!!! That's a crime at my house, just ask my dh! LOL

An agbay would be great to have but it's over my head price wise, unless I start doing a lot of cakes. I can see where it'd about be a must for those with a busy cake business.

I hope I never get so busy that I throw away the tops! Ã

My husband would hate it if I threw them away!!

Maybe her trash can is secretly labeled "Family Scraps"!

When I do wedding cakes I have alot of cake scraps, I personally don't like cake balls and don't want to take the time to make them, so I just take the scraps, cut them up, press them into a pan, pour a complimentary type of instant pudding over them, then cover with cool whip. I send this to work with hubby, and it's unbelievable how his coworkers love this....

The Agbay is priceless once you have it. When I ordered mine I spoke to the woman who sells them and what great customer service - apparently her husband is an engineer and made this thing. It is rock solid. I even used it to cut some foam dummies to size (shhh - don't tell Mrs Agbay) - worked like a charm and had no little styrofoam pieces floating around the kitchen for days!

Thank you for the kind words and congrats--I knew my CC buddies would "get" it! I am a very lucky girl.

(What's funny is that I jokingly asked for one for Christmas, but considered them too pricey for me right now. Spouse was going to make me a "pretend" version, but hadn't gotten around to it yet. I was doing a cake a couple of weeks before my birthday and she says to me, "We really need to work on getting your cakes level." I replied, "I KNOW! When are you going to make me a leveler?" icon_biggrin.gif )
