Easy capper/corker Review by Tom

(Posted on 5/17/14)

Product Rating:

I bought this and used it on some wine and then some beer. It worked good even though I had different sized wine bottles (my beer bottles are all the same). I cut some 1/4" pieces of plywood and set them on the base under the bottles to compensate for the different sizes and it was quicker and easier than removing and moving the base. The correct depth can be found by pushing down the spring loaded portion of the plunger to make sure it comes in contact with the lip of the bottle, if not, add (or remove) one or more pieces of plywood to the base. The handle will need to be all the way to the left when inserting the cork. Capping is much easier though you will need ot lever the bottle with cap out of the capper.

How to adjust Review by David

(Posted on 4/30/14)

Product Rating:

A friend gave me one of these corker/cappers that he had acquired used, therefore no instructions. It seems to be well built and is much less strenuous to use than my hand corker, but I cannot figure out how to set the cork depth. One person said to push the ram down as far as it will go then insert the handle in the finished position. No luck there. I'm using 1 1/2" corks and they end up about 1/8" proud of the bottle rim when the ram is fully depressed. Any help is appreciated!

Only if bottles are the same height Review by Fontack

Product Rating:

If your bottles are uniform in height it's quit good, otherwise you have to adjust it.
I like it, and am glad to have it.

It does a quick job making a chore go by fast. Its way better than my original black hand capper.

Better than hand cappers and corkers Review by Hank

(Posted on 12/18/13)

Product Rating:

As long as your bottles are the same size this is vastly better than the hand cappers and corkers I've used. If you use many different sized bottles, and don't group them, then it's a pain in the neck, because you have to readjust for each bottles.

Great if all bottles are the same size Review by Dan

Product Rating:

If all your bottles are the same size its great. If not you have segregate them, then move the floor piece (shelf) around to match their height.
Its a good capper, no regrets.

colonna capper Review by tom

I have tried them all. I have to recommend the black beauty over this capper. I have bottles of all different shapes and heights. So with this capper I was constantly adjusting the plastic foot block to accommodate my bottles. Black beauty is faster AND cheaper.

Wouldn't recommend Review by Henry

I bought this because it specifically accepted belgian corks. It worked ok, although I had to guess, then mark the plunger distance so that i could get the correct cork depth. An adjustable cork depth would have been better. The plastic is very tough on the main body, but the sliding piece that holds the cork iris fits into the main body via a tab which is thin and can easily break if you are not careful. To me, a floor corker would have been better, and at least one on Midwest is cheaper. This has gone up in price since i bought mine for $65.99. However, I've never used a floor corker, so I can't make an experienced comparison. If this thing were $30, I would have been ok with it for just corking my belgian beers. But it is too expensive. For capping beer bottles, the capper didn't work well; my hand capper works better because it releases the bottle after capping.The Colonna capper presses the cap on and then you have to "pry" the bottle off once capped. Still, there are many positive reviews, so many are happy with it, but not me.

good capper and corker Review by Anthony

It replaced both teh black wing capper and the plastic hand corker. Its better than both and a lot easier on my hands. It appears durable and wont rust since its plastic. It has a small footprint as well.

Extremely Sturdy Review by Aaron

(Posted on 8/5/13)

Product Rating:

What a great product. I was looking for something to replace my wing capper because I started using Belgian and European (29mm) bottles. This one fits the bill. Very thick plastic that feels very sturdy. The capper comes with the corking plug, 29mm capper and standard capper. It is large so you will need some space to store it but I will probably never use my wing capper again. This thing is just too easy to use. The only complain I have is that it leaves a circular indentation on the caps when you use it. A minor aesthetic thing, as I have never had a leaky cap, but I wish that didn't happen. Maybe I can figure out how to adjust it to prevent this. Highly recommended for ALL bottle types including wine bottles if you make wine.
