Default Ez cap bottles

I had a guy give me about twenty of the 33oz Ez cap bottles; have any of you guys used these? If so what did you think?

i thought they were really nice not having to cap the bottles, but felt like some of them didn't seal very well after they had carbonated. Could have been the gaskets though...

ez-cap bottle rock! I have 50 or so of them and would love to replace all of my bottles with ez-cap bottles. They cut my bottling time by quite a bit. If you are having carb issues you have a seal issue. Buy a new bag of rubber seals. Seals are cheap.

Yeah, he gave me a bag of seals but the show a little age,so I'm going to get a new bag. I don't even bother with 12 oz btls anymore, I have been using 22oz an am very excited to bump that up to 33!

i have gotten several, i dont think its how many but more about how old the seals are when they start to get hard. but i have done some showing lots of age and use and they worked fine. im only on my 2nd batch with them but im still using the original seals. (couple are new seals cause i lost a few.

Love them, never had a problem, though I've only used them a few times so there's been no real time for gasket wear.
