Le Creuset Screwpull Professional Lever Corkscrew


We've had one of these Screwpull openers for about 2 years now, and have to say it's amazing. This 5 Piece Deluxe Corkscrew Set
includes the Lever Model, Foil Cutter, Wine Collar, Stopper, and Extra Screw. You won't have any trouble opening bottle after bottle with this corkscrew, and it's a simple as lifting the handle.

Pinzon Red Wine Opener with Foil Cutter and Corkscrew


Pinzon's easy-to-use wine opener effortlessly extracts a cork from any wine bottle in three seconds with simple lever action. Comfortable handles easily clamp onto a bottle's neck; the steel lever drives the tough, Teflon-coated worm into the cork with a push and then pulls the cork out cleanly with a simple pull. Releasing the cork involves the same action, only with the handles clamped onto the cork. It comes with a squeeze-and-twist foil cutter to strip away the foil covering a cork, and a replacement worm.

Screwpull Corkscrew - Old School Wine Opener


We're not sure why people spend so much on a wine opener. We received a gift of this Screwpull just over 3 years ago, and we haven't used another wine opener since. It's very easy to use - put in the screw end and then turn turn turn. As the top gets pulled into place, the cork lifts up - then you unscrew to remove the cork. The Screwpull only costs $15, and we think saving the $100 bucks on another super wine opener will get you more wine and less wine gadget that you don't need.

Laguiole Sommelier Horn Handle Corkscrew

We know you can get a corkscrew for two bucks at the corner store, but this one just caught our eye and made us take notice. Don't be afraid, children - we know we tell you to buy cheap wine, but there's no reason you can't open it with a high quality opener.

In the town of Laguiole, in south-central France (pronounced Lie-Yoll), a tradition of manufacturing Laguiole knives has existed since 1829. Forge de Laguiole was created in 1987, reviving the traditional knives fabrication. Every step of the fabrication is performed on site, in the town of Laguiole, from the forging and stamping of metal components to the preparation of materials for the handles-assembling polishing and sharpening, using the craftsmanship of yesteryear.

Cork Pops Wine Opener

We've never used them ourselves, but we have some wino friends who are big proponents of the screwless corkscrew. The usual method is to use a cartridge of compressed air, shove a needle into the cork, press a button, and force the top right out of the bottle. Sounds pretty simple to us - the only downside we can think of is you have to buy replacement cartridges of that air, while you don't have to refill the elbow grease you use with a regular corkscrew.

Still, it might be worth a try if you're a wine lover who doesn't like wrestling with the bottle.

Metrokane Rabbit Wine Opener Gift Set

Rabbit Wine OpenerWhen it comes to opening wine simply and with a minimum of forearm strength, the Rabbit is the way to go. It's a bit bulkier than your typical corkscrew or wine opener, but at least you don't have to wrestle the damned cork out of the bottle.

We've found one at Amazon that is a flashy-looking silver, plus it's marked down pretty considerably from the full price at the time of posting ($43.50 from $110). Plus, the gift set comes with a foil cutter, drip-stop ring, bottle sealer, wax remover, and an extra corkscrew worm. Review
This model of the Rabbit has a velvety, silver finish, as do the four tools accompanying it. The tools include a squeeze-and-twist foil cutter to strip away the foil covering a cork, a drip-stop ring that fits onto any size wine bottle to prevent stains on table linen, a sealer that twists so tightly into any size bottle's neck it preserves even Champagne bubbles, and a "wax whacker" that flips the wax tablet off a wine cork. Also included is a replacement worm--the installed worm wears out after 20,000 or so corks. The Rabbit and tools all fit snugly into a padded storage case with a hinged lid. The cork puller carries a 10-year warranty against failure.
