It seems pretty foolproof to me, but only on round cakes 12" and under. If that's what you primarily use it looks pretty good, but if you do more variety you might be out of luck. It just depends on your needs.

The drawback is that the cuts are premeasured, so you can't do a specific height if you need to. I highly recommend the Agbay or the Agbay Junior. You can set them to any height you need. Very versatile and the BEST cake tool you will ever buy.

I love my AGBAY and can't imagine leveling or torting a cake without it! Of all the $$$$ I've spent on cake stuff, it's the best money I've ever spent!

I have the knife, which is great, and the lifter, which is terribly flimsy...it would probably be ok for lifting very thin pieces of cake, but mine buckled under an 8"x2" round icon_rolleyes.gif I didn't buy the slicing ring thingy because I have a homemade agbay.
I would suggest the Nordicware cake lifter, I picked one up the other day and it looks and feels super solid!

Agree...the Agbay is a fantastic tool to have!
