Gadget Notes – CorkPops’s Legacy Wine Opener

Date:  Feb 13, 2016

When it comes to wine opener, you can have a slow wine opener, those traditional type with a screw to screw the cork out.

Or you can use this.  I bought this from Mediya’s Wine shop.  

It is advertised as “The Ultimate Wine Opener”.

It is called Cork POPS Legacy.

It looks like this.  

It comes with cutter to remove the foil.

It has long pin at the middle to poke thru the cork.

And a gas bottle to pump air into the pin and thus into the bottle.

The theory is to pump air inside the bottle to push the cork out.

The compress air can.  Pressing it will pump gas into the bottle.

It is easy to use.

Yeap, the cork pops out in less than a second.  No need to use any strength.

Then, you turn anti-clockwise to slowly push the cork out.
