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 capper works great if you use the right bottles. The key for success is to use the long neck amber pop-top bottles (see photo). The bottles it will work with are sold at local home brew supply stores. Some commercial beer brands are sold in these bottles as well (i.e. Sam Adams). The capper works by grabbing the mushroomed top on the bottle and using the flared edge for leverage to crimp the cap. It will not work with twist-off caps. Don't let the plastic construction fool you. This is a heavy duty tool that should last you a long time.

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.

Some people complained this was cheaply made, this is simply not true. This product does have to be used carefully. You can't just ream on it once its in the down position, or I could see it breaking. But once the cap is settled on the bottle a slow steady pressure brings the capper down until the handles are level. When the handles are level, the cap is on, and there is no need to push further. If you are bottling while standing above the capper and putting your weight down on it, you can over-extend the levers and they would snap. This seems only common sense.

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.

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.
