Never have I ever gotten a dent in the top of a bottle cap after capping it.

The only case in which you would misuse it is when you use There are some bottles with a thicker wall, such as Belgian bombers and bottles with a larger volume. For standard production bottles up to 16 ounces and most production bottles up to 12 ounces. The Imperial pint glass is 9 ounces in size.

Update The method to get it working is a secret
Can't figure out how to make it The bottle doesn't hold on to it. As a result, the caps don't crimp. The instructions do not explain how to do it if it is a secret. The batch of kombucha I made was wasted. The secret will be revealed if I find it out. A recent update After some troubleshooting, I successfully got it working. In order to do it, you must put the item on a low table and push down while resting your entire body weight on it. It would have earned 5 stars if the instructions might have been included or if I wouldn't have had to figure it out for so long.

You should not be afraid of squeezing My original assumption was that it was a defective unit because I could not move the metal capper past parallel using the same force as I did with my plastic one
Initially, I was looking to review on Amazon, but then I saw advice in other reviews suggesting to use more force than you are expecting. I decided to try it and thanks to the advice, I left a favorable review. Having had back issues for quite some time, I am now able to I bought this up capper so I don't have to replace my plastic one every time it breaks, and since it is metal, I know it will likely be my last purchase.

This is a cheap & sturdy product
As part of my homebrewing endeavors, I've owned and used at least 8 different bottles cappers, and this one has proven to be the most challenging to use. The program does what it is supposed to do, but it forces you to prepare I cap my bottles by putting the sanitized caps on the bottles, then pressing down with the capper to secure them. This really bugs me since I normally cap them with the sanitized caps. When it is in place, it seems to work, but I need to handle this sucker a great deal to get it to release a My experience with it is that it works, but she's not an easy mistress to dance with, having capped thousands of bottles.

I DO believe it works
There are a few kinks in it and it After rubbing some olive oil into the joints, they appear to be working fine Having strong hands is necessary to unlock the door and to lock it too. To date, I've bottled 5 gallons of beer with the machine, but one cap was faulty.

A very effective and durable product
Initially, I was unable to get the hang of this item, but in less than 10 minutes I was able to finish it With 15 caps, I was able to use it like a professional. There is a notable difference in the "action" between this and the bargain-priced plastic cappers at the LHS, but I believe it is a much better mechanical design once acclimated. I also appreciate how much beefier it seems, as it feels like it should last for years to come.

Works with Lava Lamp bottles, but not with other Though it is functional as a bottle capper for beer bottles, I found that it had too much north-south polarization When capping a bottle, there is a lot of motion in the handles that requires more downward pressure than would be necessary if the construction had been better and the engineering had given more thought to A lip is also needed below where the cap goes on the bottle neck
A lava lamp bottle has a short top and no lower lip, so this does NOT work for them. While it is made of solid materials and it works, I did not find the overall design to be satisfactory and it did not meet my needs.

The original Italian version of my passport got lost After getting back into homebrewing after a break, I bought a new bottle capper recently. I am used to capping being a rather effortless process, but not so with this badly-made one My attempts at a second bottle failed after several attempts and a poorly designed device. I finally managed to marginally cap one bottle on the third try, but I gave up after several more attempts. It barely holds the cap in place with the magnet To make sure you've aligned the segment properly, ensure it is visually aligned. A substantial amount of force is required, but it is not impossible to handle. Although the operation usually results in an uncapped bottle, it is not always the case. When caps are being applied, the device is prone to tilting. In this case, the die is unable to self-assemble Straighten out. There is no point in keeping this, and I am moving on to another option.

It did not work at all
I did not have any problems with my bottle caps crimping with this method. Upon returning to read the reviews, I discovered that you need to make sure you press incredibly hard. It's all good. It would be unconscionable of me to force the bottles so hard that I accidently break them after spending so much time making them. You should do it if you were me. Get some orange and red cappers and spend an extra couple of bucks. The user interface is much more intuitive.
