My husband and I have recently started to drink wine, although we don't drink a whole bottle in one sitting. There have been a few times that the cork has cracked in half, when trying to get it out. When I saw this in the Pampered Chef catalog, I was excited to own it and try it out! We throw the corks away, and use this pourer/stopper. It is dripless, which means that wine doesn't run down the side of the bottle anymore. Even if you finish a bottle in one night, get this product for the dripless pourer. The middle part can be pushed in, to seal the wine for another time. It is a little hard to push in to create a total seal though. You need to wiggle it a little. That is my ONLY con. It looks fancy if you store the wine bottle on your counters, unlike the cork that can get discolored from the wine. I would highly recommend this product if you are a wine drinker. It is durable and a must-have!
