2.8 / 5.06 ReviewsCorking Sparkling WineThe Champagne Corker is a waste of money in the fact that you cannot use the champagne corks sold here for the American champagne bottles also sold here. They are not compatible. The corks are too large and cannot be removed from the bottles. Midwest needs to sell compatible products.August 3, 2016Response from Midwest SuppliesPlease consider our belgian beer corks. It is true the champagne corks will not work well in the champagne bottles we currently sell, because the corks are meant for european bottles. It takes some work, but you can get the corks inserted. The belgian beer corks fit easier and I would recommend sticking to those corks for sparkling wines/beers. Customer service will contact you to help with your situation!November 2, 2016Midwest SuppliesSomething is wrong here.Biggest complaint, no information on usage. Problems galore. American champagne bottles have too small an opening to accommodate the champagne cork they sell here, therefore doesn't work, ended up using a belgium ale cork but mechanism is not stable and something floats at the bottom causing multiple attempts to get the job done. NO schematics on how to operate or how to adjust... NOTHING. Called and they have no idea about support for this item.. Do yourself a favor... keep looking, don't stop here.July 9, 2015SolidJust bought this in preparation to try making some champagne and figured I was tired of the plastic parts on cheaper models. I've used it for wine corks and bottle caps so far (with bottle cap attachment) and it has functioned flawlessly. The construction is solid and the entire unit is really steady. Yes, it's a bit of an investment but I don't imagine I will ever have to buy another capper/corker, or my kids, or my kids kids... Worth it._x000D__x000D_Also, significantly cheaper here than any other store I looked at.January 30, 2011Doesn't quite work rightI just disgorged 4 bottles of sparkling wine that I had bottled in heavyweight French bottles, and the bottle necks don't quite seem to line up with the opening of this corker so it takes several tries to get the cork in. Also, the spring loaded arm that's supposed to hold the bottles in place doesn't fit on these bottles so it's useless. Third, the corker jaws aren't tall enough to fit the champagne corks I got from Midwest, so the cork bulges out of the top of the jaws while it's being squeezed, and as the cork is pushed into the bottle, the top of the cork gets deformed and crumbles. Maybe if I used lighter-weight American sparkling wine bottles it might work, but with the ones I used it just doesn't work. In any case, the corks from Midwest (and probably any standard champagne cork) will look crappy on top because the jaws aren't tall enough. I'm going to look for something else...December 30, 2012Waste of MoneyI cannot seem to get this corker to work correctly, that's the bottom line. The bottle holder isn't correct for the champagne bottles Midwest sells. The final position of the compressed cork isn't aligned with the bottle and as such will cause the cork to crack during insertion. I have tried now for over a year utilizing this corker with much studying and research between times, even contacting Midwest about it. I have read some good reviews on this corker and for the life of me cannot understand how someone can give this item a good review??? If someone cannot convince me I am doing something wrong in the useage of this corkeer, my final review is Midwest should refund everyones money who bought one of these and discontinue carrying this model. Over the past several years I have bought supplies exclusively from Midwest with great results, until this item. Perhaps it is time to look to a different supplier?February 16, 2016

Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 3 answersUnderstanding that this corker lets you do Champagne corking... does it also work just like the regular floor corker with respect to regular wine bottles? and what about Belgian beer style bottles?BEST ANSWER: The plunger part of the corker has an adjustable nut that lets you control the depth that the cork is inserted into the bottle. This allows you to completely insert a cork for wine. Adjust the nut and the cork will be inserted part of the way for Champagne and Belgian Bottles. Once you have the nut adjusted properly it is easy to cork and add the wire cages. I have never used the corker for Champagne but have used it many times for Wine and Belgian Beers. It works great. I have noticed that some commercial prosecco bottles that I hoped to reuse have too small of an opening for corks to work properly. I have never had a problem with bottles bought from homebrew supply stores.Can I use this corcker to cork 3lt bottles? Double magnumsBEST ANSWER: This corker will not accept a bottle that large. The largest bottle this corcker can accept is a magnum (1.5L)
