How do you open your bottle of wine? Ever seen a person struggling but still determined to get that cork out? The human mind can come open with very unique ways of opening a bottle of wine when there is no traditional wine opener available. Some good, some not so good and some border on horrific.
There was one lady who became so frustrated after her basic corkscrew opener broke that she took off one of her high heels and proceeded to use the stalk on the heel to push the cork though the bottle. It actually worked but all I could think about was the smell of feet every time I took a sip of wine. I’ve seen people using their teeth. I’ve seen a bike pump used.
One of the most unique ways I saw was done with a shoelace. A guy first used a knife to carve a hole down the center of the cork. Then tied a big knot in the lace and forced it down into the hole and yanked the cork out. The wine sort spilled a bit but it worked.
Oster Electric Wine Bottle Opener Review
Have you ever bought anything from Amazon? How do you go about judging whether or not the product is good or bad. I believe the best way to do this is to look at the number of reviews left and also the number of 5 and 4-star ratings given to the product. Below is what I found when I came across the Oster Electric Wine Bottle Opener.
There is no other model that can compare to the number of reviews and the number of 5 and 4-stars given.
If you are concerned about the number of 1-star ratings then I would suggest you read what these people have to say. Read and compare these reviews to the 5-star reviews and decide for yourself if these complaints are warranted.
If you frequently or even occasionally need to open a bottle a wine I wouldn’t suggest you resort to any of the methods above. What you need is a real wine opener and there are many different types to choose from: The basic cork screw, lever and prong styles and many other hand held openers that depend on the torque you create with your hand.

Then there’s Electric Wine Bottle openers. The lady mentioned above who used her high heels to push the cork through the bottle was actually a
