I saw it on Amazon, but have the Agbay.  Most reviews were positive, just a couple negatives.

For real? Ha....

 

I have an agbay and would never buy this, but it was so weird/different it blew my mind.

 

I hope you do share your experience......can't wait to hear about it!

I have it but i never use it because it's only for 26 and 28 cm cakes !

Knife is realy sharp and it is great , and the cake lifter is awsome too !

Would recomend it only for the knife and lifter :)

AI bought it a couple of years ago. The ring is useless due to size/height limitations, the lifter is flimsy. The best the about it is the knife - long, serrated, thin blade.

AI got one of these a few months ago, I also thought it was the answer to my torting troubles. The slicing guides only go half way around the ring, so you have to turn the cake after cutting half way through. If you didn't get the knife with it, you will need a very long bread knife or you won't stay within the guide in the middle of the cake.

The first time I tried this with a 6" coconut cream pound cake, 3" tall. The cake was very dense and had crusty edges, so it was easy to handle and manipulate. I was able to torte the cake into 4x 1/2" layers with the dome leftover. In the end i made a 12 layer (6 cake layers, 6 BC layers) cake that was fantastic. A more delicate cake (mix or sponge) would have fallen apart using this device. I would recommend using it only if you have a very durable cake that can be handled extensively. I've only seen the agbay used in videos, but I think it would be the only way to get these thin layers with a "regular" cake.
