DetailsThe Italian Floor Corker is the Cadillac of corkers. This corker is very similar to the Portuguese corker, but with some upgrades. It is equipped with a brass iris compression fitting instead of plastic. A long handle gives you plenty of leverage and the corks go in effortlessly. This corker is very easy to use, and will last any hobby vintner a lifetime.

4.8 / 5.055 ReviewsWorks well. I would have given 5 stars if it came with some kind of rubber or plastic covers for the 3 feet. The 3 feet are just square metal tubes with which started to scratch the floor. I ordered covers from Amazon (12 for $4) and all is good now.March 20, 2019Purchased
2 months agoAwesome!Purchased this after getting frustrated with the performance of the hand-held corker I had been using for the last few years. Got to the point I was putting off bottling because of it. This unit was very easy to assemble, and soooo easy to use. A slight adjustment on the depth stop, and perfect cork insertion every time.The legs do not come with rubber pads, but my wife found a set at True Value Hardware.If you do even a moderate amount of bottling, I highly recommend this productFebruary 18, 2019Purchased
3 months agoDecent corkerLike other review have said, the sheet metal construction is a tab lightweight for my tastes.
Plus Midwest needs to update their description - it's not a brass iris, but rather a chrome or nickel plated one.
But for the money and the job it does, it a good corker.February 15, 2019Purchased
3 months agoItalian Floor Corker Review...I did my homework before buying a corker and also went to my local Homebrew supply store to get a feel for the various corkers. I ordered through MidWest. It arrived on time. This corker is built solid and corks well.February 8, 2019Purchased

Browse 8 questions Browse 8 questions and 20 answersWill this perform for 900 cases now and 1000 in august? ThanksBEST ANSWER: My production is only 500 cases a year. However, I have had one of these for two years and it has not let me down once. If your bottle filler has 6 or more heads, you might consider getting two, if you have the help.I am wondering the dimensions (height especially)? Thanks,BEST ANSWER: It is 35 inches high, one inch less than a yard. The base is 22 inches by 18 inches. From the front to the end of the handle is 27 inches.Will the Italian Floor Corker work for large (3L and 6L) bottles? If not, what corker will?BEST ANSWER: Yes, this corker will work with 3 liter and larger bottles, as long as it fits between the bottle rest and the compressing jaws - the the largest bottle height would be about 14.75 inchesWill the Italian corker with champagne and Belgian beer bottles/corks?BEST ANSWER: Belgian beer bottles yes. You want the champagne corker for champagne corks and even then it is quite difficult.The lever assembly on mine is extremely stiff/tight, requiring that I step on the stand/leg to pull it up. Is this normal and will it loosen with use?BEST ANSWER: My floor corker works smoothly and very easily. I do not need to place any weight in the stand to use it.I was wondering how I could get the bottle capper attachment. I understand it doesn't come with it but you can purchase it separately. ThanksBEST ANSWER: We do not carry the capper attachment. They are available from other retailers though. Sorry for any inconvenience.We are bottling vodka in 750ml bottles with an 18.5mm opening. We will be using a composite T-Cork with our logo molded into the top the cap portion of the cork is going to be about 32mm . Will this corker work in our application?BEST ANSWER: Steve,
It sounds like you are talking about tasting corks? If thats the case then you don't need to use a corker at all you can just push it in and tap with a rubber mallet if needed.Can you use this for corking Belgian beers without any special attachmentsBEST ANSWER: To cork Belgian bottles you would want the champagne floor corker. This one probably can insert them but not to the correct depth. The champagne floor corker is required to do it correctly. I hope this helps! Cheers! James J.
