Like a dummy, I got the Metrokane and chucked the Swissair in one irreversable transaction.
The Metrokane is servicable. It does what it purports to do: It sucks the air out of the bottle. If that were the whole story, I would undoubtedly give this product a 5. Alas, the value of the vacuum is only as good as the staying power of the vaccum, and that requires that the stopper provide a robust seal. To put it simply: The seal seems to be the weak link in this system.
If I pump the bottle, and immediately let out the seal, I get a satisfying hiss, indicating a positive seal. If I pump the bottle and wait a day, the hiss is a little less satisfying, indicating a slow leak. One might expect the day-later hiss to be diminished for other reasons (whatever it is that goes on inside the open bottle), but in comparison to the swissair, the next-day hiss is too differnt from the immediate release.
I have found if I wet the stopper, that helps, and the resulting seal can last a few days with very slow loss.
So, I gave the product a 4 -- it works, but not as well as what it replaced, and I think that issue is with the stopper, not the pump.
FINALLY -- THIS ONE WORKS!!!
I bought this because it came inexpensively with my Rabbit corkscrew (which is also wonderful) and figured it was worth trying. WOW was it ever! Just put the stopper on the bottle, put the little hand pump on the stopper and give it a couple of pumps, and the wine is good to keep!
On the top of each stopper is a small "vacuum relief valve" -- just touch that to the side to let air back in the bottle to equalize the pressure, and the stopper comes out easily.
It has worked well for a couple days at a time. I haven't tried it for longer.
So... 4 points for how well it worked, but minus two for breaking.
The Metrokane Vacuum pumps works as advertised, and our wine is lasting much better. We only use it for red wine; the white is usually in the 'fridge.
It is a good product at a very reasonable price. The pump comes with two corks, so you can have two bottles of red wine opened at the same time.
I'm going to try the Vacu Vin.
In all seriousness this vacuum pump was the smartest $10 purchase I've made all year.

Wine preserver/stoppers are a great idea. I've had good success with the ones from VacuVin and OXO. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Richard Simmons
Not holding a vacuum for even 24h on first bottle. Will return it if it doesn't work on second bottle. The larger model I received as a gift several years ago works fine.Published 2 months ago by J.B.
Bought the Deluxe version of the Houdini Wine Preserver. Save your money! It worked a few times. Now there is NO vacuum at all! Hugely disappointed as the cost was NOT cheap! Read morePublished 2 months ago by Janet McKenzie
Maybe it is me, but I don't this to seal the bottle as I expected. Even if it is me and there is some trick to it, I stopped using it as I couldn't be bothered.Published 2 months ago by C. Frink
Absolutely worthless, other than as a replacement cork. I have never been able to create a vacuum in the bottle.Published 7 months ago by Matt A. Pearson
I have tried over and over again, using the instructions printed on the package, and this wine preserver is absolutely, without a doubt, worthless. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Stephen K Burr
