Should I buy an Agbay - Page 2

post #16 of 31

I would recommend the 20".  It works just fine on smaller cakes, but will also be there for you if and when that occasional larger cake comes along.  I am a hobby baker and usually make smaller cakes, but am so happy I got the larger size.  i have also never wished i got the double blade.  I just cut twice with the single.  It is so easy to adjust that it is not a problem.  Unless you are using the exact same settings over and over again, in which case the double may a bit of a time saver.

Does it have to be adjusted one or both sides?

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.


The blade guards should ALWAYS be in place unless you are actually slicing........ anything else is just plain STUPID!!

My dear sweet husband surprised me with my Agbay for my birthday gift....absolutely best gift I've ever received!!!
Both sides need to be adjusted...takes but a few seconds to do..

I found this inexpensive pine coat rack and use it to hang my Agbay above the door inside my pantry.  That way it doesn't take up valuable cupboard space, and is also  out of reach.  I don't have little ones in the house anymore, but I still feel much better having it well out of the way.

Yeah, it really hurts when you cut the tips of all of the fingers on one hand open with it. Ask me how I know, haha!

Great idea!

Maybe I'm weird but I get really excited when I get to use my Agbay.  I even cut cupcakes up with it the other week just so I could use it.  Straightest cupcakes you have ever seen.  (I'm a hobby baker who obviously spends too much on cake toys cos I bought the large double blade and I wouldn't swap it for anything).

I am going to invest in the large single blade tomorrow :) Also just brought all the Planet cake books! I'm in love!

ApplegumPam,

 

Of course the blade guards should be on when not using. I forget things since getting out of the hospital after spending 3 grueling weeks in there as well as 2 emergency surgeries.  Sorry

But I sliced myself when I was actually slicing, so the blade guard had to be off then! It's super sharp, regardless.

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?

Thanks for sharing and asking these questions. I am a home baker. This summer I bought a cake leveler and had the same experience you did. Now I know what the solution is - buy an Agbay.

What a great idea yortma, I'm stealing your way of storage. Mine is on a shelving unit in the basement and I'm always worried about it getting pushed off. Thanks!
