I'm just a hobby baker but am ready to upgrade from my little Wilton leveler. There is no way that I can justify an Agbay but I saw this Fat Daddio's leveler and thought it might be better. I know a lot of folks here use Fat Daddio's pans, but has anyone used the leveler? I've put a link to the photo.

It's gotten pretty bad reviews on here. Really, the Agbay is the only leveler worth the money. You will not regret buying it.

thumbsdown.gifthumbsdown.gif I bought one and its horrible. Bad craftmanship bad levelling ... what a waste of $$ and time messing around with it! I now just use a couple of plastic wrapped cardboard boards in the bottom of the cake pan to bring a cake up to height and use the cake pan as a cutting guide for my knife. Works like a charm!

It's awful! I bought it and it's impossible to use... Bad in every way. I think I have bought every leveller on the market (except the Agbay) looking for something that will do a decent job at an affordable price and can honestly say they are ALL terrible. My husband thinks I have probably spent as much money trying to find a good cheap leveller as I would have if I had just splashed out and got the Agbay! I need to get it.

Agbay had the Agbay Jr at ICES this year. I believe it has a blade 14" long, so it is smaller than the traditional one and I assume it will be less expensive.

PinkPiggie - thanks for the info on Agbay Jr. That may be what I'll wait for. Just checked Agbay's site and it's not there yet so they probably haven't rolled it out yet for purchase but I will keep checking. 14" would certainly be big enough for anything I do at home.

The Agbay jr is now on their site-sells for $125.00 with one blade. Looked at the Fat Daddio's and the Martellato(looks just like Fat Daddio's only twice as expensive!)
