4.4 / 5.041 ReviewsGreat 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 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, 2013How 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, 2014A very good corkerI have used this corker a couple years now. Some may think plastic is bad but not in this case. No rust or corrosion to worry about. It's a breeze to drive a #9 into a bottle. The leverage makes it's a snap. It can be bolted to a stand which is what I did. I like the small footprint as it allows me to bottle down inside my wine storage well. Two thumbs up!May 23, 2011Phenomenal!!!It is an absolutely phenomenal corker. I previously used the double level corker up until I purchased this one. It was so much easier and efficient. I recommend it to anyone.June 3, 2011OutstandingThis corker is amazing! It's lightweight, compact, easy to use, adjustable, and easy to clean. You don't need one of those big, bulky floor corkers. This will be the last corker we buy! Plus you can also put bottle caps on if you need to! Two devices in one, what a bonus! We store ours in a plastic tote with the rest of our bottling equipment until ready to use.September 2, 2011Excellent Product. I would recommend.This is my first review of any product, but I felt it was worth a go. I've been making wine over 11 years and my husband has the job of corking. It was a real task for him before with a different product and he is a strong guy. So when the Colonna Bottle Capper/Corker arrived, I immediately tried it out on a few empty bottles. I was hooked. I was able to operate it and insert the corks fully into the bottle with minimal effort. The construction is very sturdy and I like that it's adjustible for different height bottles without changing the upper lever setting. Also, I like that it was made in Italy. I plan to use it for many years and replace it if it ever wears out. I may not need my husband any more!_x000D_April 30, 2012Great dual purpose machineI received this as a birthday gift from my wife. I must say that I am impressed with how well it works. I only really have done beer to this point, but I can see using the corking function for Belgians and Triples. I am overall impressed with the functionality of this. As this unit is mostly plastic, we'll see how it holds over time.May 27, 2012
