Even I can open wine!

By 

from Auburn, IL

Comments about Cork Pops Wine Opener:

The Legacy Cork Pops wine opener, as stated in other reviews, uses gas to force open the cork.  It doesn't affect the taste of wine, and is easy to use once you've used it a couple of times and have the hang of it.

The end of the unit also serves as a foil cutter.  Place over the top, squeeze, and make a full turn and the foil comes off easily.  To uncork the bottle, just insert the needle into the cork (without pushing on the canister as you do so).  Once the needle is down in the cork, push the gas can on the top and the cork pops!  Then using the opener unit, you can smoothly take the cork off the opener with a turn or two.

The Cork Pops refill canisters aren't too pricy and worth the ease of this opener.  Mine came in a clear plastic case that makes storage easy in the pantry.  Once you are all finished, the unit is back in position for putting away and taking out to open the next bottle.

Fun to use and works great!!

By 

from Dawson, GA

Comments about Cork Pops Wine Opener:

I have had my Cork Pops wine opener for over 5 years, and even though the foil cutter lost a small piece, it still works fine! It opens bottles of wine easily and makes me look like a professional, lol! It doesn't work as well on the newer rubber type corks, in my opinion, but I love it on real corks! I recently shopped for one for a gift, and they were hard to find in my area for some reason. I was glad to find it and the refills at my favorite wine retailer, though.

When I first got it I imagined all kinds of horror stories of stabbing myself with the needle, but it is so simple to use that has never been a problem. I have taken it on numerous trips to the beach or other vacation spots and it performed well each time. Having the heavy duty plastic case to store it in has helped keep it in top working condition, and has kept it from disappearing into the deep abyss of the "junk drawer" where it safely resides.

Best cork popper ever!

By 

from Beech Grove, IN

Comments about Cork Pops Wine Opener:

I often have trouble getting the cork screw out of the wine bottle and often wait til my husband is home to open it for me.

Not anymore!! This is magic!! It opens a fresh bottle every time with no problems, and even when my husband puts the old cork back in the bottle too tight it gets it out.

I have bought two of these one to keep at the house and one for my car for when we go to our friends and families homes and bring a bottle of wine.

Cons: Read the instructions before you use to save yourself any trouble!!

Pros: Sturdy and last along time, easy to bring to parties and great gift ideas for wine lovers

wouldn't love so much wine without CorkPops

By 

from Cleburne, TX

Comments about Cork Pops Wine Opener:

This truly is the easiest way to open wine.  I have loved it since the day I bought it.  Even an arthritic person could use this opener.   Another huge plus about the Cork Pops is I have not have one single broken cork since it forces it out as a whole.  The only other tiny problem is you can't use it on odd shaped or large bottles of wine.  I rarely buy an odd shaped bottle so it really isn't a problem for me.  It also is a lot easier to store this and it's fairly portable, except that after about 5 years of use the cover will not stay on mine so I don't take it anywhere because the needle is exposed.   The refills are a tad pricey but I think they are worth it.  I just wish more places carried the refills, I've run into a couple times that a store will carry the entire thing but not the refills. I've never counted how many bottles a refill actually does open but I've always been impressed with how long they do last.  Hint - always keep a spare refill, there is no low pressure warning, you only notice on the last cork that it took a while and you know that was it.

Makes opening wine really easy. No pulling or twisting.

By 

from Fort Smith, AR

Comments about Cork Pops Wine Opener:

The Cork Pops wine opener is really easy to use.  It works by injecting a gas into the cork to build up the pressure to make the cork pop out.  You just stab the cork all the way through with the needle part of the Cork Pop.  Then you push down just a little bit on the device to let the propellant out.  Then the cork pops right out.  It's so easy. No fighting to get it out. No twisting and straining. No breaking the cork.  No having to steady the bottle between your knees to get enough leverage to pull the cork.  You get to look graceful and dignified opening even difficult corks.

 It is great for anyone, but it would be especially good for folks that have a hard time physically opening bottles with traditional corkscrews.  It would be awesome for the elderly and people with arthritis.  I could see it being extra cool for women with long finger nails,too.  No risk of breaking a nail. 

I've tried it on both real cork corks and those synthetic rubbery corks and it worked great on both kinds.  It stabbed down into the real cork a bit easier, but it wasn't too much harder on the rubber cork.  Some of the nicer wine openers I've tried like The Rabbit aren't supposed to be used with the synthetic corks (it breaks the worm, the curly part, way more often and apparently isn't great for the rest of the Rabbit either). 

The warning on the box says not to use it on the big Magnum sized bottles of wine, so I've only tried it on the regular size myself.  I've heard that it doesn't do anything strange or dangerous if you use it on the big bottles, but I'm not willing to chance it. 

The only drawback to the Cork Pops is that it requires you to buy refills.  Each gas cartridge opens a lot of bottles of wine (according the box, like 100 and something, but I don't think it really in the real world the way it really gets used opens quite that many, I'd say closer to half that the way I use it).  Each cartridge opens plenty of bottles if you're not drinking very many bottles, but if you plan on using it a lot, it could get pricey.  Each two pack of refills is like 15 bucks.  But I guess if you're opening enough bottles that you're needing lots of refills, you're doing enough opening to justify spending more on an easy opener.
