Electric Corkscrews and Other Geegaws

We may not be able to build a better mousetrap, but there seems to be no end to the number of devices for uncorking a bottle of wine.

At the Vail Trail under the headline,"Trends Watch: Uncorked," Nicole Inglis covers some of the latest devices. Inglis writes:

"If you always find yourself searching around your kitchen or junk drawers for a Swiss Army knife to open that next bottle of wine, or end up embarrassing yourself by breaking corks, you might consider investing in a sleek, new, technologically advanced wine opener. Kathy Rohlwing at the Kitchen Collage in Edwards showed us new manual and battery-powered products that will allow more time to relax and enjoy your wine instead of stressing over how to open it.

"Birambeau 9520 Rechargeable Cork Extractor - $45

"This electric opener is cordless and rechargeable, intended to prevent frantic battery searches in the middle of a dinner party. It opens 25 corks on one charge, slowly retracting the cork with the push of a button."
