The Differences in Wine Bottle Openers

Posted by Mel on 11/28/2012
There are a variety of wine bottle openers available for people to use to open their wine bottles; some wine openers are manually-operated, while others are electronic. Some bottle openers also come in a variety of shapes, designs with other features as well.

Manually-Operated Wine Openers

Manually-operated wine openers are manufactured in a variety of designs and operate differently as well. The Rabbit wine opener utilizes an innovative design and corkscrew action to remove the cork from the wine bottle; a Rabbit wine opener is manufactured with a mechanism that aligns the corkscrew accurately into the cork of the wine bottle when the lever is depressed. A similar wine opener, the Houdini wine opener has an integrated corkscrew within the shaft of the unit. Once the lever is depressed, the gear teeth drive the corkscrew into the cork and it is removed when the lever is pulled back up.

Other less intricate manually operated wine openers include basic designs such as a waiter's corkscrew, or a traditional set-top corkscrew model. These types of corkscrews are similar in their use; however the waiter's cork screw requires more manual work than a traditional set-top corkscrew model. While these corkscrew bottle openers may not be as intricate as the more innovate manually operated models, the get the job done.

Electrically-Operated Wine Openers

An electric wine opener is very simple to use; the only thing the person needs to do is to place the foil cutter of the wine opener on the wine bottle and pull up. Afterwards, the cork is revealed and the person simply needs to align the electric opener on top of the bottle's cork. Once they have aligned the electric opener, they may press a button and the corkscrew will automatically screw into the cork and retract the cork from the bottle. The main difference about using an electric opener is the fact that it's electric, so the user will need to charge the unit on its powering dock when not in use.

Other Types of Wine Openers

There are various other types of wine openers as well; anything from a Rogar-style opener to a novelty crankshaft corkscrew remover. The Rogar-style wine opener has a platform design which the wine bottle may be placed on; afterwards, an attached lever initiates a mechanism within the device to drive the corkscrew into the bottle. The crankshaft type opener works similarly; the crankshaft wine opener is placed over the top of the corkscrew on the wine bottle; then the crankshaft is turned to drive the corkscrew into the cork to remove it.
