Product Description

Pinzon's sleek, easy-to-use wine opener effortlessly extracts a cork from any wine bottle in three seconds with simple lever action. Comfortable handles easily clamp onto a bottle's neck; the steel lever drives the tough, Teflon-coated worm into the cork with a push and then pulls the cork out cleanly with a simple pull. Releasing the cork involves the same action, only with the handles clamped onto the cork. The chrome-plated opener is ruggedly constructed with a matte finish and heavy-duty steel gear mechanism, and opens one-thousand bottles in its lifetime. It comes with a squeeze-and-twist foil cutter to strip away the foil covering a cork. Hand washing is recommended to preserve the beauty of the wine opener.

Bought this because of the price but was not expecting much. It works great everytime. Simple to use and looks expensive. If you are planning to give this as a gift, know that it does not come in a nice box, just a plain cardboard one with no instructions.

Since I've never used an opener like this I was rather intimidated and was actually thinking of just using my old one since there were no instructions. I looked online for anyone who had published the instructions but didn't find any. Then I thought how hard could it be.

The description given of the product on Amazon held the clues I would need. The foil cutter worked like a charm. I was impressed. Then I forged ahead with the cork. When the opener uncorked the bottle in a flash I was stunned. This contraption is great. Looks good and the price was right.

Now I just need to find a nice container to keep it in as it is rather large and has separate pieces to it.

Really, how hard would it be for the company to insert a page with instructions on how to use it?

I was going to give it 4 stars because of the instructions but really the actual opener is great.

I brought this gift to a Christmas gift exchange, and everyone there wanted to get thier paws on this one. For the money, it looks expensive, and works like a champ.

It does come in a plain (ugly) cardboard box... but the cork puller itself looks like, and works like the spendier models.

Nice purchase!

I bought this to upgrade from an old hand corkscrew, which was unpredictable to use and sometimes resulted in broken corks.

Other reviews are right that this comes in a plain cardboard box, so just keep that in mind for gift giving purposes. However, mine did come with a sheet of instructions, as well as a card with company information on it. I had never used a foil cutter before, but it was really easy and strangely satisfying to take off the top of the foil so quickly and neatly! Then I put the opener to the test and it worked like a charm! No twisting, nothing slipping off....super easy to use. Then to get the cork off the corkscrew I moved the handle back and forth and it popped right off!

I rated this a four because it is really easy to use, but it doesn't feel like super heavy duty quality. Also, it's rather bulky and I had to make room in one of my drawers to hold it. The two handles that wrap around the bottle neck kind of spring open, so I actually had to put things on top of it in order to keep them shut to allow the drawer to close. It also came with a tip cover for the corkscrew, which is nice so that I don't poke my hand rooting around in my drawer.

All in all I think this was a great purchase for the price. And the 4 for 3 deal is great too!

This corkscrew broke after the second use! I would not recommend it, and I would not purchase another one. If I find the time, energy and patience to find out if they'll exchange it with a new one and that one performs better, I will be sure to write an updated review.

I've had corkscrews like this before...however, sometimes they could be difficult to use. This one is very seamless; it works smoothly and consistently. The only downside is that there are no instructions, but it wasn't a problem for me given my previous experience.

This is a quality product - better than the Rabbit. The Rabbit is flimsy compared to this. This is made of heavy duty material and works like a charm. Anyone can use this corkscrew with ease.

We've had one of these knock off Rabbit type corkscrews for a couple of months now and absolutely love it. It's amazing how easily and swiftly you can remove a cork from a bottle with this thing. As others have noted (I think), though, I wish it came with some sort of instructions as to how to use it. Placing it on the bottle and removing the cork were very intuitive. No problem there. But it took a while to figure out how to get the cork easily off the corkscrew. You basically just have to go through the process of pulling the lever back up and then all the way back down again. But it's not obvious (to me, at least) that this would cause the cork to be removed from the corkscrew. But once you've figured that out, this corkscrew is the best. Oh yes, and the foil cutter is one of the best I've seen as well!
