How many times have you tried to open a bottle of wine with a corkscrew and wondered if it was even worth opening? You struggle with the dang thing and by the time you get that dang cork out, you are ready to drink the whole bottle just to make yourself feel better. I hated using a regular hand corkscrew. I have arthritis is my hands after years of playing the piano.
When I saw that they had electric wine openers I just knew I needed to try one. When this product arrived I plugged in to charge around noon and it was ready to go when I pulled out my wine bottle at 7pm. It might have been fully charged before then, but I wanted to make sure. The handy cutting tool for the top wrapper on the wine bottle was also a great help. Sometimes I think they put that wrapper on with glue! It had no problems cutting through it but it was a little hard to hold while using. Of course, this might have been because I was so excited to get to the actual wine opening!
The Electric Wine Opener by Oster was pretty easy to use. It popped off that cork with ease and fairly quickly. This would be great for parties where there are multiple bottles that need to be opened or for someone who has limited mobility with their hands due to arthritis or other medical conditions. The design is great and doesn't take up much room either. Overall not a bad product to have.
