I open 1-2 bottles of wine a week and prior to purchasing the Vertical Rabbit, owned an inexpensive three handle rabit opener as well as a teflon coated screw top type. The three handle rabbit worked fine for a couple of years, though it took a bit of coordination for guests to use. However, it later gave out, and would simply screw in and out without extracting the cork. So I went back to my teflon coated screw type and it worked well with a bit of twisting effort, until the plastic broke.

So in this search I wanted a better quality product that was still easy to use. After ready many positive reviews on the Metrokane Vertical Rabbit, I decided to give it a try.

Ease of use: This corkscrew takes a couple bottles to get used to, but once you do, it is very easy to use. Because it requires some pressure around the base, I would say this is not ideal for women with small hands. My wife is taller and can use it just fine. The lack of side handles is a plus in my mind. Simply raise the lever up, drop over the bottle, squeeze, and press down on the lever. Then repeat off the bottle and the cork drops off effortlessly. Couldn't be more beautifully simple. The foil cutter works well for both lead and plastic foils in my experience.

Build Quality: The packaging is very attractive and would make a nice gift. The corkscrew itself is overall well built. The lever is heavy metal with rubber inserts for comfort and grip. I was surprised that the base was plastic, as it looked like metal in the pictures (nice paint job). However, since the pressure is primarily on the lever and the base is spread around the bottle top, I think it will hold up. And I suppose all metal construction would be a bit heavy.

Summary: The Veritical Rabbit does what it is supposed to and does it well. It looks great too. While the price is a bit steap for a corkscrew, if you enjoy wine and gadgets, I think you will find it to be worth it.

I bought this one a year and a half ago to replace an older model Rabbit which died after many years. It looks great and worked OK at first (although it does feel a lot flimsier that the original), but after several months it became sporatic, sometimes opening fine and sometimes not. Now, after a year and a half and less than 100 corks total, it either pushes the cork into the bottle or merely pushes the corkscrew in and out of the cork without removing it. I have gone to the Metrokane website and followed their instructions carefully. I also called them, but the phone message just refers you to their website. They say most defects are due to operator error, but I have been using their product for over ten years and I don't think it's me!

This is a great product, and much, much easier to use and smaller than the original version of the Rabbit. You simply slip it over the top of the wine bottle, hold it in place to grip the top of the bottle, depress the lever to place the screw into the cork, and then lift the lever to remove the cork. Very easy to do. Then you lift it from the bottle and cycle the lever again to remove the cork from the screw. It has worked flawlessly for several months now.

The foil cutter provided with it, on the other hand, is pretty much worthless.

The vertical rabbit is a unique device in that it stands nicely and can be left on a side table without looking bad and avoids taking up a bunch of space in a drawer. This rabbit works well with natural and synthetic cork. The only thing that will create a problem is occasionally we put a bottle of white in a freezer to chill it. If the cork gets very cold the corkscrew will not easly penetrate or retrieve the cork - so we use a traditional waiters cork screw for that. The action takes a little getting used to and a little muscle, but I am very pleased with it. Would give it 5 stars but the flap on the handle feels a little flimsy so I am not certain how long it will last.

I owned the original Rabbit for at least 10 years before it finally broke. While the Vertical Rabbit is superior in terms of ergonomics, it lasted only 51 days having opened about 12 bottles. The cheaper, fixed, plastic, guide through which the spiral threads, and which guides the spiral into the cork, split in half and chunks fell out. After that it would no longer go straight down into the cork, and tore up a few of them before I realized the reason was that it had broken. This broken piece was much thicker and stronger in the original.

Just spent $8.20 - like 20% of its cost - to return it to Metrokane for warranty replacement. Not a very happy camper right now.

**Update**
I took out the spiral before returning the original to Metrokane and they replaced it with a complete new unit. The replacement arrived only days after they received the broken original which was significantly faster than expected. You have to give Metrokane higher marks for customer service at least, though I never actually communicated with them. I figured keeping the original spiral helps offset the shipping cost since those don't last forever.

Time will tell if the replacement holds up any better, but I'm sure that I will use it in a more cautious way after this experience... make real sure that you have it down on the neck nice and square before applying any pressure, make sure you keep enough pressure on the grip to keep it aligned so it doesn't pull the cork at an angle, and once the handle is all the way up, release the grip completely and pull straight up until the cork pops.... I think the key is, straight down, straight up, avoid angled pressure at all costs and it may last much longer.
