Ozeri Pro Electric Wine Bottle Opener
on January 3, 2012
I needed to replace a Rabbit lever corkscrew and thought I'd give this a try. And I have to say that overall it works great - and if you have issues opening wine bottles, this will do the trick. Plus, I have had it more than a month, opening many bottles over the holidays - and have yet to recharge it.
I have, however, 2 complaints that end up being significant enough to me that I can give the Ozeri only 3 stars. First, it is big - 10 3/4" tall and 6 1/2" circumference at the top - so it takes up a lot of space for a wine bottle opener. And second, the opening (where the top of the bottle fits) is large (since it must fit as many bottles as possible), so the corkscrew almost never enters the cork in the center, which means that the cork comes out damaged. This probably won't matter to many folks, but if you have a nicely aged bottle of wine or one with a long cork, I wouldn't suggest using this opener.
