I had a couple of these that were at least 20 years old and the rubber finally gave out.
I wasn't planning on buying 6 of them but the price is right and they work as well as my old ones did.
I can now stopper leftover wine and soft drinks and the seal is tight enough that I can lay the bottles on their side without leaking.

Over the years, we've tried many types of bottle stoppers for opened wine. These are absolutely the best, with the "cork" actually expanding inside the neck of the bottle to create a seal. The flat under surface of the top means the stopper can fit several bottle top sizes, as there isn't a groove for bottle lip circumference to fit into. The lever is sturdy and snaps down securely. Definitely worth the price.

I make wine at home and am constantly being "forced" to give bottles away to friends and family. Even though I ask for the wine bottles back I never seem to get them! With these bottle toppers, it makes the wine bottles seem more valuable and I have consistently gotten the bottle and the topper back.

I also love not using the wooden corks. The corks that I use a machine to put in, once they are taken out with a corkscrew, never seem to go back in, and the wooden corks that I can just push in tend to leave little wooden pieces of themselves in the wine.

No cons that I can think of! I probably wouldn't use them if I was going to mature my wine for a long period of time. As it is, all of my wine gets drank within 3 months of bottling it.

I have put all stoppers to the test. This is the only one I recommend.I just some others that are awful. The Zyliss seems to be the only one to understand that wine builds up pressure. The rubber last a long time. My corks/stoppers have been under tremendous heat. It takes a couple of years in the heat to break one. The weak spot is the plastic cover. These corks actually let you put a bottle in the cooler & no water leaks in & no wine leaks out.

Just received them. First time one was used on a soda bottle the plastic pivot shattered. A second one was tried and the lever simply folder over. The third attempt was on a wine bottle, lever simply folder over.

I'm not sure what to think. This item has plenty of good reviews and I assume people are using them on soda and wine bottles. We have quite a few Zyliss products and they all been excellent. With these bottle stoppers, the metal is very soft and simply bends with little force and the plastic is far too flimsy.

Update: Zyliss does not appear to make bottle stoppers. As it turns out, neither the Zyliss USA nor Swiss site show any form of bottle stoppers at all. We live part of the year in Switzerland and have never seen these in Zyliss' home country. Doing a Google search, while they appear at reputable sellers (no I do not consider Target or Amazon Partners particularly reputable) the products are no longer available. However, they do appear on Alibaba, the Chinese wholesale site. I also located some reference to "official, not counterfeit" Zyliss bottle stoppers on, naturally, eBay. My take is they are not Zyliss products and may the buyer beware. Of the ones we received from Amazon, the 5 red one's we received all failed with one use. The one blue one we received worked fine. If you must, order blue one's:)

These worked fine for me at first. But the rubber seems to lose some of its filling power over time and doesn't make a tight seal, as I found out when the cork that was sealed slipped out of a red wine bottle on its side. If you buy these I suggest you test it on each use; grasp it by the rim and lift the bottle, making sure it doesn't slip out. When it slips out, its usefulness is over. Also I had the lever mechanism break on one of them. I have since bought a brand at Bed Bath and Beyond that has a much more solid feeling thick toggle in the center, and 1+ years with no problems.

They don't fit tight and the bottle will leak air and liquid. Waste of money. Wish I could get my money back.

I bought these recently and they all bent when trying to use them. Some tips broke.
I would advise NOT to purchase this item.

When I was growing up, there weren't any plastic bottles with lids to screw back on, and being in a family with kids, nobody wanted to let a bottle of pop go bad by getting flat, so we invested in bottle stoppers and became quite the bottle stopper connoisseur. These rock!

The neck of the bottle needs to be long enough for these puppies to block the carbonation from escaping, but they work really well for the right bottles.

Yay. I've had my eye out for something that would work for years.

Did not fit the wine or champagne bottles...The stoppers were too large and the the plastic on the top used to push down on to seal the bottles broke on the first attempt to use them. I had earlier versions of these stoppers and they were great but the design was changed and now they are terrible.
