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.

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.

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.

Super Agata Bench Capper
Mine came with instructions and when followed, capping was quick and easy. I would recommend this item.

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.

A call to NB helped me figure it out.
Yes, instructions would have been nice. I bought this six months ago and was ready to send it back after two frustrating bottling sessions. I called NB customer service, and got some great advice. I was using it wrong. The plastic red tab is not there for leverage when capping. Once I'd moved the tab up and out of the way, my recent capping session with this went well. I use a wide variety of bottles - 1/2 liter Euro, 22-24 oz and 12 oz. It's easy to move between bottle sizes now that I've moved that red tab. I still got a few improper seals, but nothing significant - 4 out of 30 bottles on this try. It will probably get better the next time. I gave 4/5 stars because there is still a lot of flex in the device and it does occasionally stick on a cap, but I have a lot more confidence in this than my old wing-type capper. I no longer close my eyes and wince, waiting for a bottle neck to crack, which was a routine occurrence with my wing-type. This one just seems to apply pressure in a manner that bottles can more easily handle. I mounted it on an old cutting board for stability and it works great.

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!

Does this capper need to be bolted down
S K on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It can be used mounted or free. It has 4 pre-drilled holes in the corners of the base. But it works great free, which is how I've used it for 12oz up to 750ml belgian bottles. Capper that is included is for regular bottles, but it can be replaced to cap the 29mm huge Lindeman's bottles too (sold separately), which is what I use it for a lot.
Can I use this to cap 500ml Zywiec bottles?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I've used it to cap a few random Zywiec bottles. The process may go more smoothly with the 29mm bell, but I'm bottling with various sized bottles every batch (1/2 L, 12 oz, 22 oz) and am too lazy to change bells. I do have to write off a few extra bottle caps to make sure I have a good seal, but I'm okay with that.
Are the threads for the bell plastic or metal?
N A on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The female threading on the bell is metal, the male threads that it fastens on to are plastic.
can this be used as a corker for wine bottles?
P J on Nov 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No it's a capper it does not move far enough to cork
What size bell do I need for capping Coke bottles?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would think the supplied bell will work OK. I have capped tall and short 12 oz bottles, and the 16 oz bottles just fine. The only issue I ran into was adjusting the capper height for the different size bottles.
What size bell comes with it?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The included bell uses the standard 26mm caps.
Is this compatible with a European bell?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes
Does it come with the larger bell for 29mm caps?
D F on Sep 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The 29mm capper bell is not included. It is compatible with a standard thread on 29mm capper bell

however.
