Finding the Right Electric Wine Bottle Opener
If you enjoy drinking your wine from a beautiful bottle, then you need to get an electric wine opener. Although you might remember your grandparents having one as a child, these days it is not the preserve of the rich and elite. With an increase in wine appreciation among all classes of people, more people are now able to enjoy their wines from a good bottle. But how do you open a wine bottle with a simple twist? If you want to open a bottle of wine with the least amount of fuss, then this article will be worth reading.
There are two types of electric wine bottle openers that you can choose from - corded and cordless. Each has its pros and cons, and it will depend on your personal taste which one you should get. Generally, it made of two basic components - the corkscrew and the foil cutter. The electric wine opener, unlike the old fashioned corkscrews, has a better grip so that you can easily remove the cork from it and place it back onto the wine bottle without damaging the corks so you can reuse it again.
A lot of people are very wary of electric wine bottle openers because they think that these devices are prone to breaking or leaking. Actually, these are very reliable because they are built tough. Most brands come with a built-in rechargeable battery that provides about 8 hours of continuous operation. It does not get charged or run out of power like a normal battery would. Once it gets fully charged, it will operate for up to 8 hours.
These modern devices for opening wine bottles are made with sophisticated technology. They have dual electrical motors. One motor is for the opener and the other for the bottles themselves. This dual motor system ensures that the bottles do not bend or warp when being open and closed. In fact, these new types of bottle openers have more gripping force than any opener before them. You do not have to worry about damaging the bottles while you are using the electric wine opener because it has been specially designed not to affect the quality of the wine in any way.
Another advantage of these electric wine bottle openers have is that they are able to cut through the stems of the wine bottles much easier than a regular corkscrew. If you want to, you can choose one with a diamond blade that cuts the stem easier and faster than the blades of traditional corkscrews. The best thing about this is that your wine bottles will not be damaged during the process. They will just slide off effortlessly once you turn it on and press the button. There are some cork cloths that do not work well with this particular type of opener.
When you are buying an electric bottle opener, choose one that will fit all the different types and sizes of wine bottles you have. You do not want something that will not fit the wine bottles you have. You may be surprised at how many times you open wine bottles and realize the cork has ripped out from its stem or is missing entirely. This means you have to either discard the entire bottle or risk hurting the wine bottles around it.
When you have chosen your electric wine opener you will also need to consider the proper size cork for the opener. Most cork locks come in the regular and large size. The small ones are designed for special corks that are very thin. If you do not use the proper size cork, you will likely damage your corks and have no way to get them back into the bottle.
You should also make sure the electric wine openers you are considering working with your cork. Some openers will not work with certain types of cork. There are some that use suction cups that only work with certain corked bottles. The best thing to do if you cannot get your cock to open is to contact a repairman to take care of it. You can find these professionals online as well.
