Just as there's nothing better than a bottle of wine at the beach, cabin, or campground; there's nothing worse than being stuck without a corkscrew. The table corkscrew from Le Creuset is not only compact and lightweight; it's a sophisticated tool friends will covet. Not only does this clever corkscrew take the work out of cork removal for effortless bottle opening, it now automatically twists the cork off the screw as well.
To open, simply pull the handle and the durable nylon screw drives precisely into the cork's center. Push lightly the other way and the cork climbs effortlessly out of the bottle. Then, while holding the corkscrew panels (and not the cork); pull the handle again and--voila, the device pushes the cork off the screw unscathed! Pinch down on the sides to keep the cork from falling off, and reinsert it with the same ease. Finally, fold up the corkscrew and pack it away.

|The perfect corkscrew|
|Comments:||The easiest way to open a bottle of wine. Using it takes no pressure and it ALWAYS works, even on the new plastic corks. Why pay the high prices when this little inexpensive beauty works perfectly? I don't know what the other reviewer is doing to the Screwpull to make it break, but I've used this kind for years and never had one break. Now, admittedly, I can't keep them very long, but that's only because I keep giving them away to friends who try mine and want one. There is nothing I dislike about it.|
|Bottom Line:||I would recommend this product.|

|Comments:||This corkscrew functions very well but the outer holder breaks after some use. We have had at least 5 of these and the same breakage happens. Maybe it's synthetic corks but I'd suggest a non plastic one.|
