Product Description

Pinzon's sleek, easy-to-use wine opener effortlessly extracts a cork from any wine bottle in three seconds with simple lever action. Comfortable handles easily clamp onto a bottle's neck; the steel lever drives the tough, Teflon-coated worm into the cork with a push and then pulls the cork out cleanly with a simple pull. Releasing the cork involves the same action, only with the handles clamped onto the cork. The chrome-plated opener is ruggedly constructed with a matte finish and heavy-duty steel gear mechanism, and opens one-thousand bottles in its lifetime. It comes with a squeeze-and-twist foil cutter to strip away the foil covering a cork. Hand washing is recommended to preserve the beauty of the wine opener.

Bought this because of the price but was not expecting much. It works great everytime. Simple to use and looks expensive. If you are planning to give this as a gift, know that it does not come in a nice box, just a plain cardboard one with no instructions.

Since I've never used an opener like this I was rather intimidated and was actually thinking of just using my old one since there were no instructions. I looked online for anyone who had published the instructions but didn't find any. Then I thought how hard could it be.

The description given of the product on Amazon held the clues I would need. The foil cutter worked like a charm. I was impressed. Then I forged ahead with the cork. When the opener uncorked the bottle in a flash I was stunned. This contraption is great. Looks good and the price was right.

Now I just need to find a nice container to keep it in as it is rather large and has separate pieces to it.

Really, how hard would it be for the company to insert a page with instructions on how to use it?

I was going to give it 4 stars because of the instructions but really the actual opener is great.

I brought this gift to a Christmas gift exchange, and everyone there wanted to get thier paws on this one. For the money, it looks expensive, and works like a champ.

It does come in a plain (ugly) cardboard box... but the cork puller itself looks like, and works like the spendier models.

Nice purchase!

I bought this to upgrade from an old hand corkscrew, which was unpredictable to use and sometimes resulted in broken corks.

Other reviews are right that this comes in a plain cardboard box, so just keep that in mind for gift giving purposes. However, mine did come with a sheet of instructions, as well as a card with company information on it. I had never used a foil cutter before, but it was really easy and strangely satisfying to take off the top of the foil so quickly and neatly! Then I put the opener to the test and it worked like a charm! No twisting, nothing slipping off....super easy to use. Then to get the cork off the corkscrew I moved the handle back and forth and it popped right off!

I rated this a four because it is really easy to use, but it doesn't feel like super heavy duty quality. Also, it's rather bulky and I had to make room in one of my drawers to hold it. The two handles that wrap around the bottle neck kind of spring open, so I actually had to put things on top of it in order to keep them shut to allow the drawer to close. It also came with a tip cover for the corkscrew, which is nice so that I don't poke my hand rooting around in my drawer.

All in all I think this was a great purchase for the price. And the 4 for 3 deal is great too!

This corkscrew broke after the second use! I would not recommend it, and I would not purchase another one. If I find the time, energy and patience to find out if they'll exchange it with a new one and that one performs better, I will be sure to write an updated review.

I've had corkscrews like this before...however, sometimes they could be difficult to use. This one is very seamless; it works smoothly and consistently. The only downside is that there are no instructions, but it wasn't a problem for me given my previous experience.

I learned to open wine in a restaurant using a "waiter's" corkscrew. Waiter's corkscrews are convenient because they fit in your pocket, but they do require a fair amount of skill to use. Winged corkscrews are the next evolution. Those can be difficult if you don't get the screw in the center and perfectly vertical.

I got this a few weeks ago and have opened a dozen or so bottles of wine. I am very happy with it.

The Pinzon Matte Chrome-Plated Corkscrew and Foil Cutter is sooooo smooth and simple to use:
- run the foil cutter around the top and remove the foil,
- squeeze the handles to clamp in on the bottle,
- close lever,
- open lever, and viola! The wine is open.

To get the cork off the screw:
- close the lever until it clicks
- open the lever and the cork pops off.

It couldn't be much easier.

I know this model is a clone of another opener that resembles a hare. However, the price and quality make this a great choice.

PROS:
1) Easy to use - perfect corkscrews, every time.
2) Very fast.
3) Quality construction - feels very solid, smooth action, and looks good.
4) Foil cutter is awesome - didn't think I would use it, but I do.
5) The price is right.
6) Comes with a spare, replacement screw.

CONS:
1) Bigger than most other types of corkscrews - needed to rearrange our cabinet to find a place to store it.
2) Does not come with a storage box - still ok for a gift, but you need to wrap it. Would make storage a bigger issue.
3) If you are not careful and firm, the wine bottle wants to tip when you move the lever - not a problem for spillage because the cork it still in the bottle. Once you get the coordination down, it's fine.

This is a quality product - better than the Rabbit. The Rabbit is flimsy compared to this. This is made of heavy duty material and works like a charm. Anyone can use this corkscrew with ease.
