Tips and Tricks: Wine Openers

Let's say you bought some wine, and some of these are cork sealed. You found a way to open one bottle, and there are five more.
It would help if you had a corkscrew, something everybody may have hidden in the kitchen drawer. You lost yours and need a new one.

Now I am here to help. Type in wine opener, and you will find a thousand kinds on any website.

No to electric.


The proper motor wine opener may exist, but it must be hundreds of dollars because if you are willing to spend 30-50, you get something that either you need to charge or stuff some AAs in.
