LOVE LOVE LOVE this wine opener!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Oster 4207 Electric Wine Bottle Opener (Kitchen)
I bought this a couple of years ago (at least) and it works great for me. Yeah sure it takes a little more time to use than a traditional opener but for me with little strength, it works great. My boyfriend makes his point by having a "race" of sorts to see who can open faster. But I still prefer my electric Oster opener! The cutter that comes with it works about as well as any cutter I've ever gotten with any wine opener. Sometimes it works the first time, sometimes it doesnt. But that could just be the way I apply the pressure. Anyway the opener works great. Stays charged for a long time. I had it unplugged for months and it still worked many many times. It works great on both cork and synthetic corks! If you're a wine junkie like me and hate traditional openers, this one is the bomb.
UPDATE: I've had this for many many years and it still works great. My only issue is that the grip handle on the back has gotten some weird film on it and it's really sticky. I can't get it off with anything at all like Goo Gone. It's really gross cuz everytime I touch it, my hand sticks to it. No way to clean this material. I need to replace it just for that reason, otherwise it's still working just as good as the day I got it.
