Should I buy an Agbay

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

So I recently brought a cake leveler with 3 blades, and it's terrible. Even when it's been tightened, the blade flexes! When I saw through and ends up horribly wonky. I am after something decent and very reliable. I have read many reviews on how it's worth it's weight in gold etc .. Does the Agbay maintain its position when tightened? Could you share your experiences with it?

It's AMAZING! The best cake leveler you could dream of. There's no comparing it to the other junk on the market. Worth every penny!!!

I LOVE my agbay, but I have the large one and as a hobbyist if the smaller one had been available at the time I purchased, I would've gotten it...it's much better suited to the size cakes I make.

 

...and if these were available, I would've tried them first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F66i1mxknJs

I don't personally have one but would love to own one!! I know some people who do and trust me it's in a league of its own.

Hobby baker chiming in.  I waited 2-1/2 years to buy my Agbay (deluxe single blade) because it was "so expensive".  In that 2-1/2 years I probably spent $800 on cake decorating fru-fru (i.e., "isn't that cool!  must have it! ....) when I COULD HAVE HAD MY AGBAY!!!!!!  stupid....stupid.....stupid......

 

The next time(s) you get the urge to buy a cake tool or tutorial or video or exotic ingredient, DON'T.   Write yourself a check for the same amount and save 'em up until you reach the Agbay price + shipping--then buy it. 

 

You will thank me.

Yes!  The Agbay is the gold standard in cake levelers.  There's nothing that compares to it.  Ask your family to group together for one present to you - the Agbay.  You will never regret buying the best tools.

yes, yes, yes, buy it.

Yes, and the blade is more like a heavy duty saw blade - there is no flexing or bending going on.  You will love it.  I have the smaller single blade one, because I only do smaller cakes.  It is great!

 I live in Ireland and had a 3 week holiday in Florida in June/July and while I was there I ordered an agbay plus spare blades to arrive at my holiday rental.I had previously read reviews etc about the wonders of the agbay  and believe me they are all true.I got my agbay at a great price because I ordered while in America and had no shipping or mark up from a retailer.  So yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssss get yourself one. You wont regret it

It is worth every penny...do yourself a favor and just order it.  You won't be sorry that you did.  Just be careful...it is really sharp!

My must haves:  Agbay, Kitchenaid, good pans.  

 

I have the larger single blade Agbay.  I am not a high volume baker and not pressed for time, so the single blade is just fine.  I am happy with the larger one, because it takes care of those occasional big cakes too, but is perfectly fine for smaller cakes.  Extremely precise and reliable, inflexible, scary sharp, cuts just about anything, even partly frozen layers. One of the few things I would replace immediately if lost, broken or stolen, although honestly, it will probably last forever.  i don't believe I have ever seen a post where someone was sorry they bought an Agbay!

I'd rather be baking!

Such great responses! I tend to do 7" 8" and 9" cakes. What would be best suited to my needs? I've noticed they have started selling them in Australia, where I am from.

Nothing else even comes close to and Agbay, nothing.  I have gone about 6 years and really did not want to part with that much money for it. Let me tell you I was stupid, stupid, stupid.  It was my smartest day when I ordered it and it was one of most joyous ones when I got it and used it the next day. Only one thing, Use Caution as the blades are Really sharp. Store it in the box if you don't use it a lot. Saves your had being cut up if you were to reach into a cabinet and accidentally hit it.
