There are three styles of corkscrews worth recommending, though I generally use my trusty waiter’s friend. That’s the standard corkscrew, though in my case it comes with dual levers, which makes extracting the cork easier, and an extra long, grooved screw for extra traction.

I also use an Ah-So two-pronged cork remover (pictured on the intro slide) for tender old corks that might crumble when a corkscrew is used and a lever-style opener for when I’ve got a lot of bottles to open. But that waiter’s friend is my go-to opener, and and this one -- the Trudeau Double Lever Corkscrew -- is only $9.95.
