re: uncapping
I've used steam knives which were nice but hard to get and expensive these days, and electric knives which are less nice but bought a Maxant uncapping plane the other weekend and am super happy with it; even people who have never uncapped a frame in their lives before can uncap like a boss with this toy.

Looks pretty nice and fast, maybe fast enough to. It burn the honey. Do you smell any burned honey?

Just looked it up, it has an adjustable copper heater element and is just $125. Not bad.

The one I have has an on/off switch and was switched off whenever there was a break of more than say 60 seconds.  When it was in use it was close to continuous cutting so no there was no issue with burning. Not quite as narrow a temperature range as a good steam knife but easier to use and better than any electric knife I've used.
