4.5 / 5.045 ReviewsGreat if all bottles are the same sizeIf 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._x000D_Its a good capper, no regrets.November 8, 2013broke!I was very excited to get this corker after using a hand corker. The first eight bottles corked beautifully, but by the ninth, the plastic at the top cracked and broke. Luckily I still had my difficult to use but workable hand corker around. _x000D__x000D_Since I couldn't find anything but great reviews of this model, I'm wondering if I just got one with a defect? Might try a floor corker instead and stay away from plastic parts.October 6, 2012Great capperI bottle wine, mead, fruit wine, and beer, all using different sized bottles for different purposes. Its so easy to cap with this (no hand strength needed), it made me regret not buying it 3 years ago. For the money its the best you can get.August 3, 2013good capper and corkerIt 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.September 14, 2013Great product. I have tried other corkers and this one works great. Canâ??t beat a dual purpose unit that does beer & wine!December 27, 2017Purchased

1 year agoHow to adjustA 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!April 30, 2014Easy capper/corkerI 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.May 17, 2014Makes corking wine bottles a breezeThis is a dual purpose corker/bottler... I have only used it for wine corks, and It is soooo easy that your two year old could help you.March 14, 2017Purchased
