Are you one of those wine drinkers with a bunch of different wine opener gadgets? I’ve been to my friend’s and families homes and have seen all the different methods for pulling out that cork. And here I am, a gal who started working in restaurants at 16 and to now having made a long career out of wine, that I still use the same damn cheap tool – a waiter’s corkscrew.
I remember once at my parents house for Christmas I asked for a wine opener and was given that double wing corkscrew opener. You can’t even cut the foil with that thing, you need another tool – a foil cutter! Some people probably don’t have the foil cutter, rather they plunge right through the foil with that pain in the rear device. I’ve since given my parents a waiter’s corkscrew because I guess the blonde in me can’t operate the double wing thing.
The Rabbit and electric gadgets can certainly do the trick for you, but they cost up to $40 and they’re either in a kit or are large. Now wouldn’t you rather spend $40 on a nice bottle of wine? I sure would. And what about if you take a bottle to the pool or beach? Are you going to pack up your wine bottle opening kit? The waiter’s corkscrew costs around $10 for a “high end” one that will last you a handful of years. Plus it’s about 3 inches long and a half inch wide. That sure takes up a lot less space and frees up some cash to buy more wine.
