* Works with both natural corks and synthetic corks

Purists will say there’s nothing better than a waiter’s corkscrew to open a bottle of vino and to a certain extent, they’re right. Until, of course, you let technology do its thing and make the mundane task of uncorking a bottle a breeze, like you would with Brookstone’s automatic wine opener.
Though it doesn’t look like a wine opener you’d see at a restaurant or maybe even a winery, it won’t, however, get lost in a drawer like your ordinary corkscrew. Instead, you’ll want to place this on any surface in your kitchen or bar area atop its sturdy stand, which doubles as a foil cutter. Its unconventional look actually works to its advantage, giving you more leverage when you need it. And we think that particular look will help it blend in amongst the rest of your kitchen gadgets.
Brookstone’s opener is cordless, runs off four AA batteries and will open up to 150 bottles before you need to swap out batteries. With the touch of a single button, you’ll have an open bottle within seconds, no matter the cork type. In other words, you’ll never break the cork or ask anyone for help. So why do all the work yourself when technology actually makes things easier?
