Choose Your Options:

Perfect for beekeepers with a 20-30 frame extractor, Lyson’s manual uncapper takes a bit of crank power, and the heat of steam, and churns through your honey frames having them ready to extract, quickly, and easily.

How it Works:

Up to five frames are loaded into the frame feeder which is able to be adjusted to fit various frame sizes. With the steamer plugged, powered and heated (it takes 20 minutes to heat up), the crank handle is rotated to drop the first frame into the uncapping unit where a pair of heated oscillating knives quickly and cleanly slice cappings off both sides of the frame. Continuing to crank, the frame is pushed onto the uncapping table which stores the frames and catches dripping honey until they are loaded into an extractor. The next frame is brought down and ran through the knives. This process is continued until all frames are done, or once you reach an hour, as you will be required to refill the steam generator.


  • 1500 watt steam generator (available in 120v or 240v)
  • Tank holds 30 frames
  • A honey gate and elbow at the bottom of the tank for easy draining of honey
  • Powder coated steel legs support the uncapper
  • Stainless steel tank features removable perforated trays to catch cappings and help drain honey away.
  • Caster wheels allow easy movement of the unit

Unit Assembly:

Unit requires some assembly. The uncapping unit head and tank are in individual boxes and shipped on a pallet. After unpacking the equipment, assemble the tank components and then lift the head (two people is best) onto the tank and secure with four bolts/nuts. Connect the steamer, fill with distilled water and you are ready to start!
