Wow .. now that is very cool !

Too bad it is so spendy. We do not drink much wine and I just hate letting it go to waste. This would certainly be something I would use ... guess I will have to win the lottery !!

Very innovative. But since I don't drink, it is not for me. But I love the concept.

It's about $350 US dollars. But before you rush out and buy one, Kylie, you should probably know that it doesn't work with those Australian and NZ screw tops.

I read a review on this product sometime ago. The review was overall positive, although it still wouldn't convince me to buy one. We drink a lot of wine at our house, and even with all of the innovative wine opening devices out there, my favorite design is still this one (and it costs less than $5):

LOL Steve, yes we do have a lot of screw top wines in the bottle shops...although there still are a few of the old fashioned ones too

Yes, that is the type we have too, simple and does the job!

We consume lots of wine but that thing is just too fancy for our lifestyle.
We use one of those large, decorative, stand mounted cork screw openers at the bar.
