Peugeot Elis Electric Corkscrew

Open your next bottle of wine “one-handed, with eyes closed.” This device requires only that you sit it on top of the bottle and occasionally recharge the batteries.

Fashion Animals Corkscrew

We like waiter’s-style corkscrews that come with a “double-jointed arm for good leverage.” This one also has a thin worm, or wire.

Screwpull Advanced Leverpull Wine Opener

Fit for a museum, this lever-style corkscrew perfectly combines “simplicity, functionality, and form.” While the price is high, the Advanced Leverpull is “built to last.”

Screwpull Original Corkscrew

Despite this tool’s “somewhat flimsy plastic construction,” many wine lovers appreciate the way its long spiral gently draws a cork.

Peugeot Mathus Blade-Style Corkscrew

Since brittle corks are prevalent in older bottles, a blade-style pull can be a true oenophile’s “best friend.” It’s the “perfect solution” for salvaging a broken cork.
