Customer Reviews

Wish I would have... Review by Dan
Shoulda bought one sooner. I've had a couple dozen broken bottle necks since I started 4 years ago. Only took 4 years to figure out it was probably the 2-handle, butterfly capper that was clamping/stressing the glass too much. The Agata Bench Capper should eliminate that problem. It is much easier for me to use and is quicker.
Also, my vision is a bit compromised, so properly locating the butterfly capper on the bottle squarely was sometimes a little uncertain. The Agata is much easier in that regard.
I will mount it on a board for a little more stability. It does seem kind of "flexible". We'll see about it's long term durability. (Posted on 1/18/15)
God's Gift to Brewing! Review by Paul
I have read several reviews that shocked me. I have used this exact model to cap a total of 60 cases of beer bottles and have never had it fail! Once in a while a bottle may get stuck, but if you tilt the bottle a bit, it comes right out. I highly recommend this capper to everyone. (Posted on 1/25/14)
A revelation! Review by Mark
Compared to a hand-held capper this product is a revelation. It easily cut my bottling time for a 5 gallon batch to 20% of the original time. The only negative I noticed in the operation is that it will occasionally get stuck on a cap, and you will need to gently maneuver the bottle until it gets released. Other reviewers suggest using some sort of lubricant to prevent this form happening, which I will try when bottling my next batch. Adding this tool to my collection has made a very real improvement to my happiness on bottling day! (Posted on 1/14/14)

Excellent for Champagne bottles. Review by Woodstock

Works Differently than a Hand Capper Review by oldestof9
I had collected 2 cases of beer bottles at a Polish festival here in town - they're 500ml. If you've got a good brew then maybe you want 4 or 5 oz more. I tried to cap one with the Red Baron capper which works by pushing the cap down and pulling the bottle up, but it wouldn't seat and crimp the cap down far enough...polish bottles????
To make a long story short(no really - it's long), I bought the Super Agata bench capper which works in one direction - NO PROBLEMO. I've got 2 cases og Smashing Pumpkin and 2 cases of Chocolate Stout in 500 ml bottles. (Posted on 10/3/13)
Works better than a wing capper Review by Mike
I use it for sparkling bottles, 0.5 liter bottles. The 12 oz I use the wing. So far works great, store it under it's plastic all the way up to release pressure on the spring. I never clamped it either. Use care in centering the bottle. Great for bottle nonstandard bottles. (Posted on 6/29/13)
Great capper, but maintain it Review by Otis
I didn't have a butterfly capper, went straight to this model and happy I did. I have used this capper for all my batches and love it. Easily adjusts to fit any bottle. I screwed mine onto a base of scrap cedar, and stability is great (looks good too). So fast and easy, even the kids like to help out!

Some tips: Lube the bell cap with vegetable oil before each session, caps will release better. Also lube upright and bearing points occasionally to keep operation smooth. Like any equipment, you have to maintain it. (Posted on 12/8/12)
Crappy Capper Review by Rex
Broke only after about 10 cases....very thin plastic at the thread that threads onto the bell. Fiat would be proud. (Posted on 2/13/12)
Easy to use Review by John
This thing is great- clamp it to a table or counter, and off you go. It easily adjusts to virtually any bottle by raising the handle and moving the handle body up or down in the notches (anybody remember those old bumper jacks from back when cars had steel bumpers?). The best thing is this tool allows you to keep one hand on the bottle through the whole capping stroke- no more slipping, spilled bottles like with the butterfly style cappers. (Posted on 12/16/11)
Update to my review Review by Dave
After making some modifications to the base I made for the Capper, this unit is working much better. (had to give the base better center support) I have upgraded my pint score to 4. Would have given it a 5 if not for the magnet assembly coming apart. (Posted on 8/22/11)
Love it Review by Frank Rizzo
Used it on three batches of beer so far. As long as you lubricate the cup, it works perfectly. No issues with springs, screws or sliding around as others have had. I set it on a wooden butcher block, hold the capper with my left hand and operate the lever with my right. Not even comparable to a butterfly style capper, way, way better. Cuts down the time by at least half. (Posted on 7/12/11)
Save your money Review by LCTitan
This capper works great for about six months and then really goes down hill fast. Doesn't release the caps properly after capping (this is with the capper adjusted properly). Spring mechanism gets hung up constantly and the magnet that holds the caps in fell out. Stick with the Red Barron and save yourself some greif on bottling day. (Posted on 7/4/11)
Great capper Review by Mike
Great capper, works much better than the butterfly type. Tends to slide a little on smooth surfaces. Though not a problem. It works great on Hansa 0.5 L and Modelo Negro bottles. This is a great tool with stranger bottles. I have had it for ~6 months. For the 12 oz I use the Red baron capper. For the Hansa bottles definitely use this good capper. (Posted on 5/4/11)
No problems and Easy to use Review by AdamU
I've used this product multiple times to bottle many different bottle types. It has performed excellently for me. The only complaint would be with getting used to the adjustable arm, but after a few bottling sessions it has become old hat. I used to use the butterfly caper and after using this, I will never go back. (Posted on 4/28/11)
Terrible Review by Brownribbon
This came with my kit when I first started brewing. It worked fine the first few times until the screw that holds the lever onto the frame came out. I managed for a while by holding it in place with my thumb, but that got old quick. (Posted on 4/24/11)
Waste of Money Review by jj
I had this capper for less than a year. The return spring never worked right and the arm broke right off after a few uses. (Posted on 2/22/11)
Mega-Crap Review by sirvancealott
This thing sucks. It broke after capping six bottles. (Posted on 12/9/10)
Good Capper Review by Marx
I've only had it for a year, but it seems to be decent compared to my butterfly capper. I'm always changing bottle sizes so adjusting the height has been troublesome and my helpers have a time trying to keep it adjusted even for the same bottle sizes. It seems to work best if clamped or screwed down to a table/bench and one size bottle is being used. (Posted on 12/8/10)
Good capper Review by Sam
I have had mine for several years now and had good luck with it. It is a good idea to either clamp it to the work surface or put a rubber pad under it to keep it from sliding while cranking down on the lever. It has screw holes in the base, so you can just attach it to a wooden work surface. You can definitely cap a batch of bottles in half the time. The only problem I had was with the Oxygen absorbing caps. I couldn't get them to seal properly, so I switched to my old butterfly model and had the same problem, so I think it is a problem with the caps.
If you bottle more than one or two batches a year, it is worth the investment. (Posted on 10/3/10)
Great Capper Review by Tony
Great capper, works much better than the butterfly type. Tends to slide a little on smooth surfaces. Mount this to a small board and clamp to your counter-top or better yet just screw it right to your counter. (Posted on 7/31/10)
Great bottler if used right. Review by joe
Just bottled 5 gallons and discovered a trick to using this bottler. Let's say all your bottles are the same height, but not critical. Adjust the capper so that it is just one notch lower than the height of the bottle. When you are ready to bottle, set the cap on the bottle and tilt the bottle slightly to fit it under the bell/ plunger and position upright. There is little clearance for the cap but it creates more leverage when the arm is pulled. the bottle slides right off and the cap is fully crimped. I struggled at first, but with this method we cranked them out. (Posted on 4/5/10)
