I just bought one a few weeks ago and used it the first time tonight. I was surprised after all the warnings that I had read about them and how tricky they are to use. It has 3 valves, but from my experience it is very easy to use. I have been told that the guys at HBA get them in and modify them such that the beer goes straight to the bottle rather than having to go through a 90 to get there. This is to help reduce foaming.` I did forget to turn the beer side off 2 times while filling up 2-22oz and 6-12oz bottles, and that forced me to drink about 8oz of the spillage, darn!

This was my first time ever using one and I would say it is much easier than I had heard and would highly recomend this one for someone in the market. Here is HBA's CPF.

I got mine a few weeks ago & have used it 3 times so far. Very easy to use if you pay attention to what you are doing. My valves leak very slighty when I open & close them, but other than that it is a quality product.

Really Danno? I do not get any leaks with mine. I seem to forget the beer valva at least once everytime I use it and blow beer everywhere!!

I bought my CPF about a year ago. I have only used it twice, but I can say that it is very easy to use!! Even using it wrong the first time, it filled the bottles just fine, and this time, I was able to fill bottles with warm beer, with little foaming.

Looks very shiny. If you are up for making one you could do it in under an hour. I made a plug'n'play filler which handles keg-keg and keg-bottle or whatever.

The guts of it look like so:
