I have been using this product heavily for about a year and love it but it stopped working. Response by True Fabrications has been swift and they took care of the issue immediately. I have never used a wine opener that was easier to use. It requires so little strength to operate I would think it would be great for anyone, but especially for anybody with less strength in their hands. Thanks to the people at True Fabrications for their professional and concerned response.

This opener does not fully extract corks; after pulling up the lever, the lower part of the cork always remains in the bottle. At that point, it is necessary to grasp the body of the opener and pull the cork out manually. Moreover, the lever is somewhat uncomfortable, and requires a lot of force. In my opinion, the Brookstone opener is better although it costs more. My Brookstone device lasted a couple of years, which perhaps is all one can expect.

Cooks Illustrated magazine recently reviewed wine openers, and gave their highest rating to the Oggi Nautilus corkscrew. It's not clear whether the "Nautilus" corkscrew marketed by True Fabrications is the same item, although the pictures appear to be identical.

Update (8/15/2011): This device broke after less than four months of use; the company sent a replacement once I provided them with a copy of the Amazon invoice.

Update (4/17/2014): The replacement lasted several years, but broke again. This is not a device for the ages, but I guess you get what you pay for.

Purchased this opener as a result of the test done by Cooks' Illustrated. Am not disappointed. It is easy and effective to use. Whereas the Rabbit positions your muscles awkwardly for the cork removal effort, this opener is designed to have you grasping the neck of the bottle firmly with one hand and the other can then much more easily use the single lever to remove the cork. The only, very slight, issue seems to be that it does not quite remove the cork entirely from the bottle. Maybe I just need more practice? Right! Let's open another!

This opener is the best. I have rheumatoid arthritis and this opener is so easy to use. It's great to have a bit of independence without having to ask for assistance.

Originally bought one of these openers at a thrift store which sent me on a search to find gifts for friends and, of course, Amazon came to the rescue. All the recipients are raving about how good the opener is! Not only does it take the cork out of the bottle, close the opener, pull the lever and the cork pops off the spiral wire.

Product is easy to use at an affordable price. I have broken bottles with a $10.00 one that didn't line up the screw in the middle of the cork. So far, a great product.

We got one of these after seeing it at a friend's house. It's a lot less expensive that some similar lever corkscrews. But it developed a problem quickly, where something inside was catching on something, often making operation difficult. One day, the problem just went away, and we continued to use it without incident. But then it suddenly failed completely (something broke inside), so it's in the garbage (I didn't save the receipt, so can't attempt to return it - who saves every $20 receipt?).

I'm considering getting another, rather than spending a lot more on the "premium" product from a competitor, but in a way, it's like tools: you can pay a little or a lot for a screwdriver, but you'll be on your fourth cheap screwdriver while the first high-quality one is still perfect. The fourth cheap one won't last, either, leaving you with no saving and a lousy tool. Maybe I'll just spring for the good one ...

I bought this particular cork remover as a gift because I received one myself and found it to be a really easy and very convenient tool for opening a corked bottle. There are many other types of bottle openers out there and they work exactly as they were designed to. I recommend this cork popper because it's quick and easy.

This opener worked great for about 10 times, then the little PLASTIC (tube?) that houses the PLASTIC rod busted. Why make some parts strong, but an important working part PLASTIC? It is not worth the money.

Whoever engineered this opener totally missed the mark.

It broke after a few uses-I contacted true fabrications and they said they would send a new one for free-they told me it is a quality control issue. [...]
