Questions & Answers

Synthetic corks cannot be used with this product, according to the instruction sheet. Couldn't we do that? Is it really a big deal? Thanks a lot?

Corks made of synthetic material can be used with it. So long as you don't need to exert too much pressure on the handle, you should be fine.

What percentage of the model consists of plastic compared to the Metrokane ?

This is a very good product. It is made entirely out of metal. This opener is one of very few of this caliber available in the market. It is even more common for their "VIP" models to be made primarily out of

Are synthetic corks affected by this?

The cork does come out, but I have to use a lot of strength to pull it. I bought the opener in regret for the wine I drink, since synthetic corks are used.

This doesn't appear to be a recork
3/5

My wine opener is easy to use -- I simply turn it over and tuck the cork inward. I've given a number of them as gifts to friends and family. They all agree that it's fantastic.

WORKS WELL WITH JUST METRIC CORKS AND NOT SYNTHETIC CORKS AS ADVERTISED In the instructions for this product, page 8, it is also noted not to use with synthetic materials
5/5

There is a clear statement on the item's description that it works with both The first bottle I picked up to test this out after receiving it had a synthetic cork. I don't typically come across synthetic corks, but I am pleasantly surprised by how well it works. When I tried to remove the cork, as easily as it went in, it just slid out again. The following is a revised version of A bottle was attempted for the first time, and it came up empty After reading the description, I noticed that this was suited for both natural and synthetic corks. So I checked out the instructions that came with it. Page 8 recommends only two things for the "care" of this product. (I am attaching an image for your convenience). In no case should you submerge it The following are the two aspects of Corks made from synthetic materials should not be used. * So yeah, there were some false advertisements on the seller's part. It would not even remove the synthetic cork and I most likely would have never read the small manual and never learned, but when it will not even remove a synthetic cork and the manufacturer itself says not to use this product with synthetic corks - I knew something was wrong. Back to the drawing board.

Using this program is simple and easy
3/5

The best thing about it is how durable it is. It is my fourth wine opener of this type. THESE ARE A KNOWN KIND OF OPENER
I personally have a large collection of them. The books have been bought for us by friends. In light of the fact that we drink wine every week, and most of them still come with corks, it would be nice not to have to twist your wrist so extremely in order to open a bottle. Well, it seems that this one is. Our favorite part of this one is the grip, namely its initial one handed In order to use it, you hold it upright, position it above a bottle with your left hand, and grip with that hand. Then you pull the lever with your right hand. You need to pull two handles horizontally into the bottle on some bottle openers (Rabbit) in order to hold the cap in place. are too many things going on in that place. When you lift yourself up, you will feel comfortable. Despite its quirky nature, this one always pops the cork. It was never done by the others. As soon as the bottle is open, you release it, let the lever go down, and then pull it back up. Once you have done this, the cork will pop off. Openings in the past have fallen apart at this stage, so we expect this one to perform well.

I just wanted to let you know what can happen
3/5

After seeing mostly positive reviews, we bought this product on 5/3/2016, thinking it would probably be the last one we need for quite some time. When she stated it could be used on synthetic corks, we had no choice but to purchase it. The device ceased to function starting on 11/22/2019, no longer extracting the bottle cork. The majority of things in our home need to be repaired, from electrical to electronic to mechanical, and sometimes I even wreck things. China was the subject of this article holds the cork up when the lever is raised. The rod that lifts the cork is attached to this part. By the time it reaches the rod, the hole in the part has worn into an oval, and it will no longer adhere to In light of this, With the exception of our infrequent parties) we are back to using the 20+ year old That's all I have to say!.

I used it for 3 months before it broke
3/5

In the end, this opener was extremely expensive and I hoped it would repay me for my investment. It's a very disappointing experience.

The two of them are both bad
5/5

There was an old one we used to have that had 2 levers on each side. You pushed the two small ones down to penetrate the cork and then you pushed the two larger ones down to remove it. There is no longer a way to purchase it. That opener was easy for my wife to use. This one seems to be a little confusing for her. 4" may be a good length to make the lever. A brief update This is one of two of them I own. Those things aren't the problem, I'm trying to squeeze the heck out of them. Their respective roles require them to.

5/5

After several hundred uses, my previous wine opener broke, and I sought a new one of the same model. The model I wanted could not be found, but I discovered this model that I prefer. With its sleek design, not only does it look great, but it also reveals wine with much less effort. An added bonus is that the foil cutter is a unique design that works the first time and doesn't require a number of A lover of wine would be well advised to purchase this product.

This wine bottle opener is easy to use and good for opening wine bottles
5/5

I have had problems with a broken handle on this style of opener, but love the design in general. Although we both have had hand surgeries, it is very important to us that these openers are well-made and easy to use.
