One of nicest parts of a great meal is often that moment when you pull the cork from a great bottle of wine. That unique sound always stops the conversation. But what is the best corkscrew to use?
Our experience is that the best is not the most expensive! You can find many different styles such as the Air pump, Winged, Twisting Pull, Two Pronged and the Butterfly lever style. We believe that the traditional Waiter style corkscrew (pictured) is both the best and most cost effective to use – equipped with a foil cutting knife, thin wire screw and double hinge! With a little experience, you will be able to open every bottle with ease and no cork damage. It’s no surprise that the Waiter’s corkscrew is sometimes known as the Sommelier’s friend!
Extra tip! Make sure – as in the picture – that it is double hinged as this enables the (two stage) pulling action to remain gentle and almost vertical throughout, which prevents damaging the cork.
Pop those corks! Enjoy…
