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.
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.
I found this very easy to use, and it has capped over 300 bottles successfully so far for me and I don't anticipate it breaking.

Works as easy as advertised; only buggered one cap, and that's because of my impatience and not the capper. I thoroughly recommend.Published 13 days ago by Sean M. Carney

Don't need to force the caps on, this works great to cap the bottles. It has a magnet in the capper as well to help hold the caps in place. Very sturdy product also.Published 1 month ago by Friend In PA
Works very well and creates a tight seal. My only complaint is that it doesn't work with stubbies, like Session Lager comes in, only your standard long-necks. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Thomas Hamilton
