Purchased this to seal the capsules on my olive oil bottles. It seals a capsule within 1-2 seconds. I agree with others that the unit over heats but I simply turned it off after sealing half a case of bottles and was able to seal the second half of the case as the unit was cooling. Then I would turn it back on for the next case of bottles.
I have only used it once and I hope it lasts me several years.
The unit works pretty well, especially compared to a hand held heat gun! We found that the top of the capsules were getting scorched by the flat plate of the stop inside the coil area. So we added a screw to the stopper - this provides a positive stop in a tiny area, preventing the capsule ftom contacting the stopper plate & getting burned. This seems like an obvious addition that the manufacturer should make.
