This is great for beginners and casual home brewers.

Two things you have to know to make this useful and ensure longevity of your purchase:

1. It's functionality depends on the bottles you use. Pretty much all standard 12 and 22 oz. bottles that are purchased by the case from your usual homebrew supplier are compatible with this capper. Obviously, don't use twist off bottles, but if the lip of the bottle is about 5/8 to 3/4 of an inch, it's going to work. However, if you're recycling bottles, many of them have a much shorter lip. If the lip of the bottle is 1/2 an inch or less, the two metal plates that provide the leverage for the capper won't exactly grab hold where they should and you'll end up fighting with it. The capper will end up sticking in the down position, or the cap will crimp on slightly askew, if at all. This will result in wasted caps, possibly broken bottles, an improper seal (which means spoiled beer), and a really frustrated you. If recycling bottles, just take a look at the beer you're buying (again, no twist offs). Some examples; the capper works great with Sam Adams and New Belgium bottles, but not so much with Sapporo, Moretti, Pacifico, and Dos XX bottles.

2. Don't power through it. It's a bottle capper, not an iron man competition. It doesn't require a feat of strength to work it, so once you feel the cap give, just gently follow through. The capper will last longer and you won't dent the top of your caps.

This is a great capper. Another review suggested that it doesn't work on champagne bottles. Certainly, this may be true for corking. However, the metal plates also support 29mm necks, you just need to use a screwdriver and a few taps from the back, underneath the handles, to pop them out. Once the plates are out, turn them around and as long as the cap will fit (beer caps in the US are generally 26mm), you can cap it. The crown also screws out and can be replaced for 29mm caps. I've used this on champagne bottles with 26mm caps and it works great.

this thing rocks! i am new to beer but have made wine in the past and i expected this caper to be as hard to use as a cheap corker(you have to push on a plunger with a bajillion pounds of force) but no! this thing is good quality fairly inexpensive and is easy to use. Who cares if this thing doesn't work on champagne bottles this thing is just as good or better than any bench caper because you don't have to align the bottle underneath it perfectly you just put it on top of the bottles and pull the levers down and you have a perfectly capped bottle of beer.

I have purchased two of these units - one broke with very light use - buy a metal stand capper for a little more money if you are going to make any quantity of bottled beer. These plastic units are not very well made and not much more than a toy. I capped a little over 100 bottles when the first one snapped at a plastic junction where a metal swivel rivet is installed. I figured I must have received a bad unit so I purchased a second. The second one must have been an end of shift unit as the handles don't line up when laid on a flat surface and equal compression to all portions of the bottle cap is not applied to the cap when put on an filled beer bottle - I'm anticipating the second Red Baron Capper will soon break as well. I suggest getting a metal stand capper from any local brew store or off of the net for less than $40 (my local brew store sells an all metal model for $36). If you are capping your brew and the capper breaks you are pretty well messed up on that batch and it would become a throw away batch as you need time to purchase another capper - again this unit is pretty much a toy.

I ordered myself one of these not knowing that the wife had also ordered me the "same" product.
The one I ordered was stamped, MADE IN CHINA and the one she ordered (Both from Amazon) said MADE IN ITALY. The Chinese one had terrible workmanship and crushed bottle necks with abandon. The Italian one was smooth and worked great, as advertised. Both were marked as RED BARON CAPPER in the shipping papers. They had some minor decorative differences as well but were both red. The Italian one had a glossier finish and the Chinese trashy one was matte finished. The Italian one was also smoother operating.
So I don't know what to tell you except that perhaps you should buy one in person to make sure you get the Italian version. Or get a benchtop capper instead.

We have been brewing and bottling beer for at least 15 years. In all those years we have never broken a bottle, much less in the capping process. This capper was hard to use. It was hard to center the cap either in the capper (it has a magnet in the capper bell), or on the bottle. We were well into the second case of beer, when, while trying to cap a bottle, the bottle shattered at the neck. We pulled the capper off and half of the neck was missing. We cleaned up and continued. A few bottles later I heard a **CRACK** and told hubby to stop. He pulled the capper off and examined the bottle. The cap was on, but there was a crack running from the mouth of the bottle down the neck. A few bottles more (we were determined to get this darned batch of beer bottled), and **CRUNCH**, another neck broke while capping.

All in all, it took us over 3 hours to bottle one five-gallon batch of beer, losing 3 bottles in the process. This capper is DANGEROUS and we will NEVER use it again. Previously we had used the bench top capper, but after 15 years it had just died, so we tried this capper. NEVER AGAIN.

Stay away from this product. It is badly made, and dangerous to use.
