I don’t know about you, but when I offer a cheese tasting, I always offer wine. When I host a dinner party, besides juices, cocktail and the other drinks, there is always wine. If we have a fancy appetizer before a very elegant meal, there will be wine.
That’s a lot of bottles. Have you used a manual corkscrew back-to-back for five or six bottles of wine? It’s ridiculous and takes a lot of time. If you prepare the wine ahead of time, it could lose its freshness and flavor, and I don’t want that.
Electric wine openers take just seconds to open a bottle, and they almost always come with foil cutters. Forget to mess with those annoying aluminum seals on the tops of bottles; these things are a genius idea!
These Are Better
Electric wine openers are more easy to use and operate than manual corkscrew bottle openers. Corkscrews can take a lot of time, a lot of energy, and can end up pushing the cork into the bottle if not done correctly.
Electric wine openers ae simple to use, easy to clean, and can open multiple bottles, while a corkscrew opens one at a time.
How to Use an Electric Wine Opener
First, remove the seal from the bottle, then take the electric wine opener, place it firmly on top of the bottle and push the button to begin removing the cork. When it has been pushed all the way down, remove the cork from the bottle, and then press up on the button to remove the cork from the machine. Enjoy.
Unique Features of Electric Wine Openers
Electric wine openers offer very special features compared to their manual counterpart. Electric wine openers have the slim design, an a rechargeable base that allows more multiple bottle openings, they add in accessories, and they’re fun to use.
The fact that these wine bottle openers are rechargeable is a great money-saving advantage. You won’t have to spend the money on batteries.
Utilizing the base by placing it on the charge after each use is a good way of keeping the battery from dying quicker. The wine opener can open anywhere from 30 to 80 bottles on a single charge, depending on the model.
Recharging usage means that your wine bottle opener will always be ready for opening a bottle, no matter if it’s planned or not.
2. Slim Design
The slim design allows for a creative, modernist approach to the design of the wine bottle openers. Like the other drink maker such as blender, ice machine, coffee machine...they take up relatively no counter space and put away when not needed.
The slim design makes them easy to handle and hold, weighing anywhere from 1-4 pounds. They are relatively lightweight and are made to be slim and sleek.
3. Bottles Opened
The unique looking wine openers aren’t just slim in design, beautiful to look at and are rechargeable. The number of bottles they can open depends on the charge the battery can hold. Some bottles opened usually depends on the charged battery and the amount of energy the wine opener must exert to remove a cork.
Less energy used, more corks removed, more bottles opened. The usual number of bottles that an electric opener can handle is usually about 30 bottles. There are some that can handle 60 and even 80 bottles.
It Can Come with Accessories
Some electric wine openers come with added accessories. You will almost always get a foil cutter. Foil cutters are the standard accessory that is nearly always included because you will almost always need one. Foil cutters are used to break and remove the seals from the top of wine bottles.
You may also get a coke pourer and stopper. A pourer and stopper combo is an excellent gift to have included. It replaces the cork that has a hole drilled all the way through, and will keep your wine fresh and flavorful. It will even add a nice spout to pour from while providing and easy way to put in a stopper.
Another item you might see come with an electric wine opener is a wine chiller. This one you won’t see as often, but chillers are stainless steel and insulated to hold a chill for your wine for hours. Chillers are a great bonus if you prefer your wine chilled.
You may also see, though very rare, is a vacuum sealer for wine bottles. This item is unique and doesn’t require you to keep the corks of your bottles. This item is placed over the top of your bottle and seals it until you are ready to use it again. It will seal the bottle and lock in the freshness and flavor of the wine. It can be used to preserve the other food and drink like cocktail, and special juice... to keep on the fridge
