I have this effect/gimmick. I'm 'rapt with it !!
Below is a fairly impromptu handling idea I
tried without practice ( except for wearing the Gimmick) - It was Frying Time !
I run a small
Limo service, using other skills, including amateur magic to entertain my clients, and their
children, - mainly impromptu, as the opportunity, or need arises..
First I practised having it
loaded, and in place whilst driving/helping clients in, and out of cars.
I decide to try it out,
after having had it tucked away for a long time. (A present for use ‘one day’)
So,- just a few
days ago,.. I’d found some mini bottles of Champ' - I asked some clients I was picking up from an
event, “who would like a little drink of Champagne ?”
Of course all said “Yes” !! I showed the
easy to one finger palm miniature. Got a good surprise reaction, a few laughs, and one young lady
seriously asked, “do we each get one of those ? ----- ( *It was after a party* ) -
I had a
Butlers/waiters cloth over the arm holding the small bottle, which – saying nothing for that moment,
I arranged ensuring they could see that it was definitely not concealing anything at all. - As they
were 'drinking in' the unexpected vision, of the small bottle being held as if to serve over the
cloth, I found it super easy to exchange to the real bottle, so smoothly, from this Very Well Made
Easy to Master Gimmick.
My six passenger clients ALL screamed !! They were expecting a
Chauffeur, not a Magi ! Nor this impossible appearance. No one, could work out where it came from.
Two said it came from the air. Now that has to be a NFW effect if ever there was !
I’m still getting positive feedback, even days later from my amazed clients !!
Only my handling
of Jay Sankey's ‘Travelling in Time’ has gotten near this great, and very rewarding reaction.
My money was very well spent ! Just on that ONE reaction alone. - Earlier I had made an error
in ‘pick up time’ I was willing to do my work for free, to make up for this never before lapse !
Instead,... I was paid well ! The client has spoken to me since saying, the others are still raving
about their night with Kevin, and especially this fantastic effect made error free, and possible
using this Value For Money Magical Gimmick !
I’m getting another to produce 2x small Beers from
elsewhere, Its for those like, who said, “Great man. - No way that ‘Champagne thing’ really happened
! - but I drink beer !”
I’ve tried it with two small beers. Its Perfect with just a little
thought. Thanks Penguin !!
Buy it. Try It. Its truly ‘Frying Time’ great !!!!!!!

I really love this gimmick. Its well made, unique, and operates very well. I'm giving 3 stars
however due to the DVD and ad copy, not the actual device. If you are a worker who is looking for a
great way to produce a bottle, give this a look.
The DVD instructions are poor. Installing
the actual device is not covered. It's not going to hold me back from figuring it out, but I don't
understand why they wouldn't just show what they do when installing a new gimmick.
method is taught o-k. The DVD feels like they are making the explanation up as they go. I felt like
I didn't get to see enough exposed steals.
The routines are taught very well.
The ad copy is a bit misleading. It says "how to produce two bottles using the same gimmick".
Yes they teach you a great routine to produce two bottles, however only 1 bottle comes from the
gimmick. I was under the impression that the gimmick could hold 2 bottles.

Why does no one acknowledge Bob Reed? Forty years ago, he blew away two hundred magicians at a IBM
convention. His production was perfection. Even when he explained how it was done, he still
surprised the hall. Remember those who create the moments we all strive for.

I bought this from my local magic shop, and I must admit this is by far the cleverest bottle
production I have tried yet.
The hookup is very different from other productions such as Splash
Although it states that you can do the production without wearing a jacket, some sort of
cover (i.e a shirt) is required.
When I first opened the box, I was surprised by the
looks of the gimmick, but the gimmick is actually very nice and facilitates a clean and impossible
My favourite bottle production so far!
