I saw 2 different chocolate shavers on Sur La Table's website...says it will make chocolate curls for you. Has anyone ever used one? Are they worth the money?

I love the cakes with chocolate curls on top but I can never make then quite right. Thought this might help.

I have a chocolate shaver, but can't remember which brand. Before that i used a regular potato peeler. The best tip i could give you is to make sure your chocolate block is a little soft. I don't even have a great way to do this, except put it in a warm oven for a couple of minutes. When it's slightly soft, the chocolate curls around itself, instead of just shaving off. The chocolate shaver is definately easier on the hands.
