Hubby tried to talk me into the Matrellato to save some $$ and I convinced him that I NEEDED the Agbay because it was the one tool that I've never heard negative reviews on. The Martellato really looks NOTHING like the Agbay.
The Agbay has blades that look like hacksaws, I mean WICKED looking. It's also got measurements on the inside and outside (I have the deluxe) to make sure your blades are level and even.
To me, the Martellato just looks like a pricey Wilton.
I put off buying the Agbay for months and months because there were so many other cool things I wanted (airbrush, edible image printer, etc etc). I should have bought the Agbay first. It's not glamorous, but it is SO unbelievably awesome. I use it on every cake (unlike that airbrush) and it always has perfect results (unlike that edible image setup).
