You will love it. Every time I use mine, I wish I did more cakes so I could use it more often.

Did you get the Senior or the Junior? I love them all (I now have three. Don't hate me.) The Junior is just FAB for cakes 14" or smaller. Best. Cake. Tool. Ever!

I love mine! But my husband over tightens everything (I once used a knife to cut the entire top off a plastic bottle while he was at work) and he cracked the plastic part of the knobs that are used to keep the blade in position. One came off, and I have to use pliers to adjust it icon_evil.gificon_mad.gificon_evil.gif

I believe on Agbay`s website they have replacement parts available for a few dollars. The pieces youre having trouble with might be listed there.

I got the Senior. I figured I should just go for it!

Leah - you said the jr is good for cakes up to 14". Their website says through 12". Have you been able to use it to level a 14" cake? I can't really justify the expense for an Agbay as I only do cakes for my family, but if I can get by with the jr, I might do it anyway.

No, the website is correct. The Jr cuts a 12" cake.

I really wished they made a 14". I have the 20" and I don't use it that often. I think that the 12" would be to small. When I need a small leveler I use the Wilton 10". The one with the wire and not the foldable one.

I recently went ahead and purchased the junior. Cuts a 9x13 across the 13". I think it will work to cut around the edges of a 14" but then I might need to use my Wilton to finish off the center. At least I should have level cuts to guide the Wilton.

Yes I really wished I could cut a 14 inch cake with it. I don't believe I need the 20 inch one. 14 would have been perfect. I'll probably still get the Junior.

I have Wilton cake pans and found that my Agbay Junior cuts my 14" cake with a little room to spare. The blade is 14" and it is almost 15" between the legs. I believe I've read that not all 14" pans are actually 14", so you might need to check your pan.

I too love my Agbay. The blade length is 20.5 inches. I have had it a while, and I did not know it came in different widths. Since larger cakes are harder to tort and level freehand than smaller cakes, I would tend to go larger, if the price difference is not great.

^^ Great point about the larger cakes. I never thought of that. I'm saving up now for either one of the one blade levelers.

Thanks for all the input everyone icon_biggrin.gif
