Hey wine fans: There’s no need to get unwound or uncorked when opening a bottle of vino. A number of wine opener products on the market can help even a rookie master the art of opening a bottle with ease. We’ve reviewed a few models that we believe are fool-proof for almost anyone.
There’s so much to like here, starting with the one-motion simplicity it uses to open your bottle. Then there’s the equally easy-to-use foil cutter to conveniently remove seals. Best yet, all that is required to operate this opener is a simple push of a button. Sleek and light, this cordless opener holds a charge of up to eight hours, or 30 bottles, so you can take it with you for that tailgate or big event. Comes with a recharging base.
Made of heavy-duty zinc alloy with bronze-plated grips, this rabbit ear-shaped cork remover requires minimal effort to remove the cork all in one piece. It’s also dependable. Just attach the wine opener to the bottle and pull the lever upwards and downwards – its simplicity all but guarantees consistent success. The ergonomic shape is easy to grip, and it comes with helpful accessories like a foil cutter, 2-in-1 spout/wine stopper, and an extra spiral. All that’s left to do is enjoy your glass of wine.
Built to last
Want to impress friends with waiter-level skills even if you don’t really have them? Handsome, sturdy, and above all simple, HiCoup’s corkscrew will help you pull it off – literally. This rosewood handle all-in-one corkscrew features a double hinge and a comfortable grip for effortless cork pulling. The precision-cut notch along the screw grips the cork firmly, and also reduces the drag as it cuts through the cork, making it less likely the cork will crumble and offering a significant advantage over other models.
Streamlined and rechargeable
Like its electric competitor above, Secura’s Electric Wine Opener can open up to 30 bottles before needing to be recharged. It’s also easy to use. Simply place on top of your wine bottle, press a button, and watch it do the work for you. Compact with a streamlined design, it takes up little space and is easy to store when not in use. Then again, it’s attractive enough to display on its rechargeable stand, so you might keep it out just for aesthetic appeal.
No charging needed
OXO also offers an arthritically friendly corkscrew, only without ever needing to be charged or recharged. A quick up and down on the silver lever is all it takes – no painful twisting of the corkscrew is needed. Then a simple pump of the lever releases the cork automatically. The large body fits amply over the top of any wine bottle, and the die-cast zinc handle with soft, non-slip grip provides leverage for comfortable use. And you won’t need another one soon, since the OXO also comes with an extra screw to lengthen the life of your product.
