I would much rather have this:

I have the top one, it is easy and fast. I don't use it often though because the cartridges run out and have to be replaced.

9 out of 10 times I use a screw and a hammer to open my wine bottles. Ha.

Cool opener.

I don't know... it's very hard to go wrong with a good double-hinged waiter's friend corkscrew. I like the simplicity... and I like the price.

We have several versions and the one we posted is so far the fastest in the world.
The cartridges come in pack of 2 refills and good for 100x 0.75L bottles.

If any of you interested, check

I usually just screwed the cap off or if I couldn't get both hands to work I break the top off against the pavement.That is nothing like a strong pull on Richard's Fortified before sleeping under the bridge..

Errr.... I wonder - are we having real wine connoiseurs here ?

We are discussing the fastest wine-cork opener here.

Screw-tops wine are bottled without wine corks and do not need any wine cork opener.

Traditional wine and premium wines still come with wine corks.

The traditional waiter corkscrew isone of the tools I still use for Magnum or half-size bottles. It is simple, effective and light on the pocket. Agreed.

There are other inventions such as the Metallic Lever Pull or ScrewPull tools. These are effective too and does not use much strength.

There is also the Wrench Screw Opener.

There is also the air-pump type - which I had but find it ineffective and does not work most times.

The CorkPops, however, is the fastest way to open the Wine Cork today and it works very effective and most times. The refills are also replenishable and allows for frequent re-use. What I like most is that now I can open my premium red or white wine with a 'pop' sound - with much finese and style. Definitely a talking piece at every party.

Cheers! Yamas!

It isn't how fast you open the bottle, it is all about the finesse!

I must say that I vote for "The Rabbit" 100%. :) What a girly thing to say. Why bother with it fitting in a pocket?? Is that a rabbit in your pocket or are you happy to see me?

Since when is opening wine about speed? 

Reply by StevenBabb, Jul 24, 2010.

oh man.... you know when it's an interesting topic when the "rabbit" refernces start coming out! are we even talking about the same kind of "rabbit" here????  hahahahah

i use the good ol' double hinge.... i work in a wine bar and have to open a lot of bottles... no need for THAT kind of speed...


Reply by outthere, Jul 24, 2010.

I use one of these cuz it's fun and it won't fit in my pocket.

My double hinge was confiscated by TSA at SFO which leads to this question:

How do they open a bottle of wine on an airplane. Or is all airline wine screw cap?

HondaJohn - Love the "USB Wine"!

So, outthere, why were you carrying one onto the plane?  ;-)   Shortly after 9/11 I lost a couple of Swiss Army knifes about the size of my pinky (the kind you attach to keychains), and learned my lesson. But good question about the airplanes. Someone probably saw an opportunity with US carriers and sold them a gimmick or three. Doubt the Europeans use them, though I have no factual knowledge.

Definitely still travel with a sommelier's friend (in checkin), and have a couple more at home. No need for the ah-so or rabbit or.....

Frankly, I'm most impressed with the shoe technique--certainly beats knocking the neck off against a rock!

That's between me and my Mullah ;-) ;-)
