It’s a dark truth that we really don’t like to talk about — but we know a fair amount of people who love wine but don’t know how to open a bottle.
This isn’t really an issue if at a bar or restaurant, but if trying to entertain at home or at a cookout, can get pretty embarrassing, and fast. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about though. Corkscrews can be tricky, and for those with injuries, mobility or dexterity issues, they can feel downright impossible.
An alternative option though is the electric wine opener. Electric wine openers make opening bottles of wine a snap. Simply insert it over the top of a bottle, and press a button. Presto! Your cork pops right out and is discarded. This is especially useful if you are having a party and opening multiple bottles in the same evening. But really, it’s a godsend to any household that loves wine, but hates corkscrews.
Looking to add an electric wine opener to someone’s holiday gift list? There’s some great ones to go for, and they may end up being an invaluable asset to their home entertaining. What’s a better gift than that?
