Love it
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.

God's Gift to Brewing!
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.

Easy to use
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.

Works Differently than a Hand Capper
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.

Great capper
Beautifully designed capper. Will adjust to fit any bottle and provide a good seal. The first few bottles got stuck, but a shot of pam stopped that issue. A real time saver!

A must have
Like most beginning brewers I bought a starter brewing kit that came with the red wing type hand capper. I found that capper to be not only not very effective, but downright dangerous. I had several bottles break while using that capper and one that actually exploded ( glass up to 10 feet away from where I was capping.) So I decided to give this bench capper a try and I'm glad I did. Not only is it much safer in the fact that it doesn't clamp around the bottles, it is much faster than the wing capper. I usually fill 12 bottles at a time and then cap them before filling the next 12. I capped all 12 in less than 2 minutes.I would recommend lubricating the bell with a little vegetable oil before starting to keep the caps from sticking in the bell. Also Practice on a dozen or so empty bottles to get the hang of using it. I now look forward to capping again.

Good one armed capper!
I recently had rotator cuff surgery and couldn't use my winged capper that comes with beer making kits so I ordered this capper. Turns out it is way better than my other capper and allows me to cap bottles with only one arm/hand. It takes less strength and makes a great seal. Initial instructions are not very good but I was able to figure it out. Adjustable for almost any height of bottle.

upgrade
definite upgrade from the "red emily" / "red baron" / red butterfly capper. Not only is it more sturdy, but it is more stable, gives you the ability to center the bottle under the bell die, and quicker to use than the butterfly. I upgraded to this after my red butterfly model shattered, and it was a linkage piece that cannot be replaced. If you want a durable model, pony up the bucks to get an all metal capper or go to an antique store and buy a cast iron one for $5. You might have to machine the plunger shaft and thread it to fit the bell from any of these models. Also, beware: there is not a standard thread for the bell dies used on different models. The height adjustment takes some getting used to and could be redesigned for improvement. But then it would probably cost more to make and it wouldn't sell for under $40 so decide where your priorities lie. I used to have problems capping certain bottles like heineken & corona w/ the butterfly model but the super agata crimps them with ease. I definitely recommend switching to the same height bottles for an entire batch though because going back and forth can be time consuming and frustrating. If you don't clamp down far enough the bell can get stuck on the cap, but same goes for the butterfly model.
