I just placed an order on this. It's perfect for me who works out of my home and has tile counter tops and lack of space. This allows me the sanitation and ease of working fondant.

Anyone use this? Your thoughts?

Also what are your thoughts on this leveler?

I thought she was going to come out with a new version that had measurements on the mat. I'm still waiting for that.

Wow I need one of this too! I'd save myself a fortune in powdered sugar and cleaning spray to get rid of the sticky! That's going to the top of my 'want' list!

Levellers I have no idea about...I would like one but from what I have heard from agbay owners nothing else is any good so I don't want to splash out to find I wasted my money!

I have it and it does allow me to roll the fondant nice and thin. However, I get a lot of pock marks in my fondant - just trapped air. I roll it inside the mat then I take the top mat off and use my rolling pin directly on it. This might just be "me" so it may not happen to you.

I have one and love it! For pock marks, which do happen often, take a little bit of powdered sugar and sprinkle on the fondant and then roll over it again - that should get rid of your pock marks perfectly! I too, am still waiting on the "Deluxe" version with the measurements...

I am new to the fondant world and ordered the mat right away and couldn't believe how easy fondant is with the mat. Sweetwise also has wonderful videos on you tube check them out..
