How to choose an Electric Wine Opener
Here are a few things to consider before getting any of these awesome battery powered wine bottle openers.
Cordless? Functional? …Sexy? Transforming reactions from “meh,” to “ahh,” the only thing better than a cordless, functional electric wine bottle opener, is a cordless, functional, sexy electric wine bottle opener. The visual aspects of the opener can either add to or take away from the entire experience of using it.
It is said “the first impression is the lasting impression”. An elegant wine bottle opener – that works flawlessly like any of these – has the ability to create lasting first impressions over and over again.
An important aspect of electric wine bottle openers is the power of the charge; how long each charge will last, and the method in which it charges. For biased environmental reasons, I am in favor of the rechargeable battery (as are most manufacturers, luckily for me), whereas others require battery operation.
Nothing is less groovy than investing in a magical product that fails during presentation (perhaps it is as grooveless as I looked as a server). It is very important to read reviews and be sure that the product is working well for everyone that is using it; dismissing poor reviews of, “this thing works terribly, or fails wonderfully, every time I use it,” may be a poor choice in the long-run. You also want to be sure that the opener you are looking at works for all different types of wine corks, including synthetic.
It would entirely defeat the purpose of buying an electric wine bottle opener if it was complicated and difficult to use. What we are looking for is the wow-factor of “press and pour!” Simplicity is key.
Manual Corkscrew Opener Nightmares
In my younger years, I was a server at a restaurant that sold an exhausting amount of wine. More times than I am okay with admitting, my face turned cherry red and my hands shook as I failed to properly open a bottle of wine in front of people who weren’t shy of chuckling. Crossing my fingers, praying the whole ordeal didn’t end with cork crumbs in a $200 bottle of wine (which, to my demise, they sometimes did), I earnestly wished there was a classier, simpler, and fool-proof method to opening these expensive bottles of wine. Since my customers did have expensive taste in wine, I am sure they would have appreciated a little classier style as well.
Only years later did I learn that my immediate sense of nervousness – when a table asked to see the wine menu – could have vanished by investing in a handheld automatic wine bottle opener. If I had only known, I would have looked so sophisticated; walking up to every table, presenting the fine wines, and flawlessly and heroically popping off the cork – it would have been much lighter on my young and developing ego.
Gaining popularity, electric wine bottle openers really have come a long way in the past couple of years; there are many different colors and styles to chose from, and it is now possible to get a great product without breaking the wallet. Since there are now so many varieties of electric bottle openers, hopefully this article helped you sort through different variables to consider when making a buying decision, as well as give you an idea which of the top 5 best wine bottle openers to choose from.
