If are looking at your nearly finished wine in your carboy and dreading the idea of bottling, it is only because you haven't invested in this great Portuguese Floor Corker yet. At only $64.05 you will never find something that cost under $100.00 that improves your life this much.
Here is a small sample of what people are saying about this corker:
OMG! Wow! Never again to use the hand corker. Never again to have the bottle slip out between my feet while trying to cork the wine bottle. You MUST get this! You'll never go back to the hand corker. 1 screw and it was put together. Bottle fits snuggly in the holder. The cork goes in on the top. Pull down the lever and WA-LA! A corked bottle with no effort! You must buy this if you cork bottles! So easy! I corked 30 bottles in approx. 15 minutes.
When I bottled my first batch of wine, I bought a hand corker, even though the owner of my local brewing store TOLD ME NOT TO. He told me the hand corkers are difficult and I would hate it, and he only stocks them because first-timers aren't sure they want to spend $70 on a floor corker. He said everyone comes back and buys the floor corker after bottling their first batch with the hand corker. He was right! I hated the hand corker, so I bought the floor corker for my second batch, and oh my. It's so easy. Adjusting the depth of the cork is super easy, it's stable, it's sturdy, it's fast. Do not buy a hand corker, even though they're cheap.
It takes all the effort out of correctly positioning the bottles. The action is very smooth. I could literally do it blindfolded with one hand. The corks go in cleanly: level at the top without the unsightly dimple that hand corkers create.
