Dismayed, she carries the bottle back to her mattress, corkscrew lodged tight in the unbudging cork, and again begins bawling while his scowling image reappears overhead.

You know the feeling. It has happened to you, man or woman. It has happened when the boss came to dinner, in a hotel room, or on a picnic. It need never happen again.

Where Bretecher’s woman screwed up was not by choosing the wrong man, but by choosing the wrong corkscrew. That simple, T-shaped device is frustration incarnate. Samuel Henshall, who patented it in 1795, should be immortalized in the wax museum beside the Marquis de Sade.

A replacement is necessary, because in this age of microchips and rocketships, most fine wines are sealed with a plug of resilient, spongy wood cut from the bark of the Quercus suber, more commonly known as the cork oak tree.

Cork hugs the glass neck of the bottle with tenacity. When kept moist by the wine in a reclining bottle, corks can last 2years or more before they have to be replaced.

So if you have acquired the civilized habit of a refreshing glass of wine with your meal, here are a few tips on selecting and using cork pullers.

Choose your weapon

The T-shaped Henshall screw is a worthless piece of junk. Right now, get up and go into your kitchen and throw yours out. The good news is there are several designs for corkscrews that work flawlessly. A few are even idiot-proof. You would not cut your lawn with a pair of scissors, and neither should you try to pull a cork with a device originally designed to remove perfume stoppers. Go out and buy a real cork remover. There are three features to look for when selecting a cork remover.

Worms not augers. The part which is inserted into the cork should be a helix formed from a heavy wire that looks like a coiled worm. These wire worms do not tear the cork as they wind through it. Augers, whose thread is more like a screw, tear corks and should be avoided.

Mechanical advantage. The device should give you a mechanical advantage with levers, gears, or screws. Its design should translate a gentle motion on your part to forceful action on the cork.

Wide and long. Make sure the worm is wide enough and long enough to get a good grip on the whole cork. Narrow worms tend to pull out only the center of the cork, while worms shorter than 1.75″ only screw through part of a long cork, and often tear it in half.

I have personally used all of these devices many many times.

Screwpulls and imitators that is great for opening a lot of bottles in a hurry. Among the better imitators are the Rabbit and Insta-Pull

Even though we haven’t done new testing for this guide in a few years, we still believe the True Fabrications Truetap is the best corkscrew for most people.

If you can’t find the Truetap, go with OXO’s Steel Double Lever Waiter’s Corkscrew. It works the same way as our main pick, but shows OXO’s style. Though it’s few dollars more expensive, it at least comes from a well-known company and isn’t a knockoff being sold by someone claiming to be a different company.

For those with grip issues, or those looking for an opener that can handle multiple bottles without tiring out your hand, we recommend the Oster Electric Wine Bottle Opener. In our tests, this rechargeable electric opener worked faster and just as easily as one that cost twice as much, and its slender profile makes it easier for smaller hands to use.

Pull Quote

You can think of a wine opener like a hammer. Sure, there are nail guns, but if you’re just driving one nail, they’re not really necessary.

As James Beard-nominated sommelier Michael McCaulley, wine director and partner at Philadelphia’s Tria, told us, you can think of a wine opener like a hammer. Sure, there are nail guns, but if you’re just driving one nail, they’re not really necessary. The same goes for Electric Wine Bottle Openers. You just need something that’ll get corks out easily and that will last.

To figure out the best options, we spoke to a number of wine servers and sommeliers— people who open bottle after bottle, night after night, among other experts. “You want a corkscrew that is easy to use and takes up as little space as possible. You also want ones that are made well and aren’t too expensive,” said Michael Madrigale, head sommelier for Michelin-star chef Daniel Boulud’s Bar Boulud, Epicerie Boulud, and Boulud Sud. “For home use, simple is best,” Ray Isle, Food & Wine’s executive wine editor, agreed. “I still prefer a waiter’s corkscrew to anything else,” he told us. “I really believe that a wine key is something quite personal. For me, the best style is the classic waiter’s corkscrew … I think that this kind of model gives a person the greatest amount of control when opening a bottle. It’s sort of like the ‘stick shift’ of wine keys. No professional driver wants an automatic,” said Jordan Salcito, wine director of David Chang’s Momofuku restaurant group and formerly of Eleven Madison Park, where she was part of a James Beard Award-winning beverage team. She told us that one should look for “a wine key that fits easily in (his or her) hand, has a long, sharp, knife capable of cutting a clean edge, and can extract long corks cleanly.”

Waiter’s corkscrews go by many different names: sommelier knife, waiter’s friend, and wine key among them. Their primary function, as with any corkscrew, is to remove the corks from bottles of wine, of course, but they generally have a small blade for removing the foil, as well as a bottle opener for popping the top off a beer. They’re often quite small, with the Pulltap’s style folding down to about inches long and less than half an inch wide. “Double-hinged” refers to the metal lever that folds out from the body of the corkscrew and sits against the mouth of the bottle. There are actually two steps; you first lift from the lip in the middle, and then, once the lever has reached its apex, the one at the end. You might also see this style referred to as a double lever. Single-hinged/levered options are out there too, but they don’t offer as much leverage and therefore require more yanking. With the double-hinged style, the cork comes right out.

Again and again, the experts told us Pulltap’s is the way to go. Tria’s McCaulley told us, “For everyday purposes we recommend a double-hinged Pulltap’s … Often times when you buy a corkscrew without a double hinge, especially if you’re inexperienced, you break corks very easily.” Asked why he specifically likes this model, he said, “It’s very light…it has a nice sharp blade, and it has a ridge to the blade, and the ridge really cuts through the foil really well. It has a thin worm that is made of strong metal.”

The wine openers and the wine.

We tested each assistive wine opener with the same brand of synthetic-corked wine. Although we prefer simply pulling the foil off rather than cutting it, we did test the foil cutters each of the openers came with. I opened a bottle following the manufacturer’s instructions, and then the test was repeated by a left-handed assistant with hand strength issues. We compared notes afterwards and were able to come to an easy consensus.

True Fabrications offers an alternative to the Pulltap’s called Truetap, and we feel the most comfortable recommending it as an easily accessible option. While it’s a knockoff of the style—really, identical save for the name engraved in the hinge—it’s a high quality option with all the same benefits. Because they’re so similar, all the input from the experts we spoke to still applies.

Flaws but not dealbreakers

Although we find the Truetap to be an easy-to-use, portable, and inexpensive corkscrew, it’s not for everyone. It does require a degree of physical strength and dexterity that some people may not possess. If that’s the case, consider the Oster Electric Wine Bottle Opener we discuss below.

It’s also slightly larger than Truetap in all dimensions and heavier by 4grams, which lends it a pleasantly heavy feel in the hand. As far as build goes, if you’ve used OXO products before, the steel body and matte rubber handle will be very familiar.

Rather than the smooth motion that Truetap offers when you open and close it, the metal lever on this one clicks into place when compacted or extended. It won’t change positions unless you want it to. The double-lever arrangement helps in removing longer corks, as you can get leverage from two positions. It works just as well as Truetap, which is to say, very smoothly. There’s little to no difference in how good they are at removing corks.

The foil-cutting blade is rounded rather than straight and serrated, making for a smoother cut along head of the bottle, and the beer bottle opener at the other end is another nice bonus. With two lifting arms, compared to one on the Truetap, you can open a bottle either underhand or overhand, whichever is more comfortable.

Care and maintenance

When you’re ready to open a bottle, we found the method suggested by Gary Vaynerchuk, the founder of Wine Library, to be about as easy as can be. First, he shows that you can simply pull the foil off the bottle, rather than cutting it. Then, place the worm in the center of the cork, and, rather than turning the opener, turn the bottle to start the drive. Once the worm is in, turn the corkscrew the rest of the way—about five rotations total. Then use the mechanics of the lever to lift it, and your vino is ready to go. If it seems hard, don’t worry. “Opening a bottle is a relatively simple procedure and gets easier with practice; if you’re not very good at it, you clearly should be drinking more wine,” said Hotel Jerome’s Zimorski.

Once the bottle is open, we’ve found that the best way to keep open wine fresh is to pick up a can of Private Preserve, recork it, and refrigerate it.

Wrapping it up

Sources “Well, when I pick up my standby home corkscrew, a Pulltap’s double-hinged waiter’s friend, I’m not wowed by the black plastic handle, flimsy metal fulcrum and serrated foil cutter. It works fine, but I confess I don’t feel much of anything about it. “

Maggie Hoffman, Which Is the Best Corkscrew?, Serious Eats, December 20, 2012

How to Remove a Wine Cork with Scissors

If you have a pair of scissors, you have a wine opener. Tip: the blunter the better. We don’t want ya to cut yourself!

Step 1: Take off the protective foil or seal from the top of the bottle so that the cork is exposed.

Step 2: Open the scissors and drive one blade into the cork.

Step 3: While holding the other blade and handle, start twisting while pulling upward.

The cork should come out just like you were using a corkscrew!

Heat up your Wine to Remove the Cork

Now, this one won’t work for all cases because no one likes boiling hot Chardonnay, but if you have a red wine that you wouldn’t mind drinking mulled, try this approach:

Step 1: Take off the protective foil or seal from the top of the bottle so that the cork is exposed.

Step 2: Place bottle in a pot or pan large enough to submerge a good portion of the bottle.

Step 3: Boil the water and pay attention to the bottle. The cork should slowly slide out on its own.

Step 4: Add some spices to your wine such as nutmeg, allspice, or cinnamon to enjoy a festive treat!

Pump the Cork Out

Okay, so you should probably save this one as a last resort, but it works. If you have a bike pump available and you haven’t had too much to drink yet, give this one a try.

Step 1: Take off the protective foil or seal from the top of the bottle so that the cork is exposed.

Step 2: Poke a hole in the center of a cork with a sharp object.

Step 3: Feed the needle of the pump into the hole and start pumping.

Step 4: The cork should come out in no time from the pressure.

Now you can sip your wine and pretend you’re Lance Armstrong.

Tea Strainers

Tea strainers resemble small sieves and are used for straining tea that has been made with loose tea leaves. Tea bag tongs are small flat tongs used for squeezing and removing teabags from your cup.

Coffee filters are used when brewing coffee. Fresh coffee grounds are placed in the filter and hot water is poured on top. The filter allows the brewed coffee to seep through whilst the grounds remain in the filter. Some filters are available for individual cups of coffee, sitting in or on top of a cup.

Stencils and Shakers

Stencils and shakers are used for creating delicate patterns on top of your coffee foam with cocoa powder. These patterns can be seasonal like snowflakes or general like leaf patterns. The shaker is a tin with a perforated lid that you put the cocoa powder in. A quick shake of the tin over the stencil will create the desired pattern.

Openers

Bottle openers come in variety of designs and methods and are used for removing corks from wine bottles and crown tops from beer bottles. Popular styles of corkscrew include the winged corkscrew and the waiter’s friend – these require some effort from the user to remove the cork. Lever openers, ‘just turn’ models and electric corkscrews require less effort but are generally more expensive to buy. Models like the waiter’s friend and winged corkscrew also incorporate a crown top opener into the design. A foil cutter is used for removing the foil that covers the tops of wine bottles. Again this is incorporated into some types of corkscrew.

Coolers

Bottle coolers are available in a variety of designs. The most commonly used coolers are double walled buckets that can be chilled before use, or buckets that can contain ice. Other coolers include neoprene sleeves that act like wet suits and maintain the temperature of the bottle for as long as possible. These sleeves are great for outdoor dining like picnics and barbecues as they are compact, light and small to store and pack.

French Press Cafetiere

This type of cafetiere is best described as being a jug with a filter and a plunger. Coffee grounds are placed in the bottom of the jug and hot water is poured on top. The plunger and circular filter is placed on top of the coffee and after a few minutes of brewing, the plunger is pressed down slowly until the filter reaches the bottom. This process traps the loose coffee under the filter leaving you free to enjoy the freshly pressed coffee.

Filters

Due to wear and tear over time, the mesh filter of the cafetiere will occasionally need to be replaced. Replacement filters are available, either on their own, or as part of a three piece set that includes the upper and lower discs that the mesh sit between. The upper disc incorporates a spring coil around the edge which creates resistance when you are plunging the filter.

Pour Over Coffee Maker

The pour over coffee maker is an alternative way of preparing fresh coffee, the filter cup sits on the top of the round jug with the ground beans inside, pour over hot water and allow the fresh coffee to drip down. The fresh coffee can now be poured straight from this.

Insulated Jug

These jugs are designed to hold a large amount of liquid like hot water, tea or coffee. The generous size is ideal for catering for several people at functions. The jugs will be double-walled with a vacuum in between to keep hot contents warm and cold contents cool.

Double Walled

These glasses, some with handles, are mostly used for espressos and coffees. The double walled space keeps the coffee hotter for longer whilst keeping the outside cool to the touch. Double walled glasses are very stylish too and look great as part of your daily coffee ritual.

Champagne

Champagne glasses range from saucers to flutes and are a top attraction at any celebration. Champagne saucers are wide, shallow and curved glasses sat on the top of long tall stems, they always look great for serving to guests. Champagne saucers can be stacked to create a fountain, from the top Champagne is poured until it flows all the way down to the bottom until all the glasses are filled. A star attraction. Other Champagne glasses include flutes which are long tall and thin.

Shot Glasses

Shot glasses are just as they sound, a small cylindrical glass just about big enough for one shot. These shots are mainly associated with tequila and vodka. Shot glasses can also be used for creating chilled recipes like alcoholic jello shots or an appetiser called amuse bouche and can be a great way of serving a chilled dessert as they can be styled and served in a culinary fashion.

Electric Grinder

An electric grinder is used for grinding fresh coffee beans into a fine powder for use in a coffee filter, cafetiere or a machine. An electric grinder will use a stainless steel blade that will spin at a precise RPM to finely grid the beans into aromatic freshly ground coffee. A viewing window will allow you to determine how course or fine you want your coffee.

Manual Grinder

A manual coffee grinder is similar and sometimes referred to as a mill. The manual turn handle to grind the coffee is normally on the top, the beans will be poured in and the grinding mechanism will be operated by the handle. This allows the grade and size of ground coffee to be more controlled. The manual grinder will have a drawer or collection tray at the base called a hopper.

Tea Infuser

An Infuser is a small perforated object used for loose tea, the infuser is filled with the tea and submerged into hot water to infuse the tea flavour into the water. The design of the infuser can be a round ball, egg shaped or a novelty design such as an animal or a fish.

A water infuser is used for flavouring water with fresh fruit. A removable chamber can be filled with fruit which will infuse the water giving you naturally flavoured fruit water.

Handheld Frother

A handheld frother is used for thickening and frothing milk, it can also be used for frothing hot chocolate and coffee. The handheld frother is motorised and spins the mini frother on the end very fast to whip up the milk for the top of hot drinks or for a smooth hot chocolate.

Frothing jug

A frothing jug is perfect for using to froth your milk in due to its wide pouring spout. This makes it easier to pour as the milk will be thick and you will have more control over this. Some frothing jugs come with their own frother as part of the lid. As the plunger is pushed manually, the attached whisk at the bottom will spin to create the froth.

Coffee Pot

The stove top kettle is used for boiling water on a hob. Traditionally this is how water was boiled for tea, coffee and even for washing before the days of the electric kettle. The kettle is filled with fresh water and placed on the stove. When the water is boiled the kettle will whistle through a steam vent or flap to indicate this. These kettles are suitable for all hobs but some may exclude induction due to the material it is made from, always check manufacturer’s recommendations.

Storage pots for tea, coffee and sugar come in a range of styles and material to fit in with the theme of your kitchen. The storage jars should have a secure and sealed lid to keep moisture out.

Tea Pot

A teapot is used for brewing tea, either using tea bags or loose tea (you’ll need a tea strainer to catch the loose leaves when pouring). Teapots are generally sized by the amount of cups it can make – ranging from one cup up to 1cups. Larger teapots used for catering and events will be sized in litres.

Tea Press

A tea press is similar to a coffee cafetiere in that the tea, either bags or leaves, are put inside a central filter and left to steep. The plunger is pressed to push the tea to the bottom of the filter, locking the tea away and allowing the tea to be poured. These tea presses are more commonly used for tea leaves or herbs but tea bags can also be used in the press.

Travel Mug

A travel mug is used for carrying coffee or tea to drink on the go. These mugs are generally tall and are insulated or double walled to keep your drinks warm. The travel mug will have some form of drinking spout and many have some form of stopper to prevent spillages. Care should be taken as although travel mugs might be spill-proof they may still leak hot liquids if not kept upright.

Travel Press

A travel press is a cafetiere that you can use on the go. The tall insulated mug in addition to the leak proof lid and drinking spout also contains a plunger for steeping a pressing of your fresh coffee and tea. The fresh pressed drink can then be consumed straight from the mug.

Mug Cafetiere

A mug cafetiere is a large insulated mug with a filter and a plunger. This allows the use of fresh coffee or tea to be added to the bottom of the mug. After the water has been added and allowed time to steep, the plunger with the filter on is then pressed down and the coffee grounds or tea leaves are pressed to the bottom of the mug. The plunger itself embeds into the handle so that it is no longer visible or in the way when drinking.

Storage

Some drinkware items are designed to be stacked together, but do so with care not to scratch off any patterned or coloured areas. Delicate items like china and glass should be handled carefully and not stored with other heavy or sharp items that could damage or break them. Bulkier items should be stored separately and not stacked where they could damage other smaller delicate items.

From the 15th floor of a building you step into an Otis elevator and press L. The shiny doors kiss closed. The floor briefly lightens under your feet as sequentially the digital numbers start dropping. Fourteen. Thirteen. Twelve. You look at your phone to have something to do.

That’s one way to descend 15feet.

A quicker way is to take off running—along with three muscular guys behind you—as fast as your legs can pump as you push a rattling four-man bobsled out of the starting house at the Lillehammer, Norway, bobsled course. At the last second, you leap over its sill, drop into a seat as you grab the steering ropes, and tuck down to minimize air drag. The clattery hiss of the runners intensifies, a gently banked left then a harder banked right. A finger snap and suddenly there’s another left where you fly so high on the banking’s wall that even with football-player neck muscles, a head’s that out of position can get pried sideways by the downward g’s—and you’ll be driving the corner blind. And then, a quarter mile from the start is Turn 4, a giant high-banked left where you’re now absolutely screaming. At this point, you’ve dropped that same Otis-elevator 15feet. And accelerating toward 90 mph.

Pictured: 201Best Driver’s Car contenders on the famous Corkscrew

The drop and distance from the summit of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca’s famous Corkscrew to the Turn (that’s also an interval of four corners) is very close to this. And I’m staring, a bit confused, at its digital representation in our Vbox data software. Or rather at two lines traced over it—one green, one red—that were data-logged within a few minutes of each other by Mazda’s newest Miata Cup Car. Although the Corkscrew and Lillehammer plunges are similar, if two bobsleds had followed paths as divergent as these two race car runs, one of them would have wound up hanging from a tree in the Norwegian forest. Unlike the laser-aim trajectory of a bobsled that corners due to banking (like an airplane), a relatively flat, 39-foot-wide track is open to a certain amount of automotive interpretation. And our driving veteran, Randy Pobst, and our shiny-faced 20-year-old intern, Ben Albano, have decided to play two decidedly different riffs through this, the trickiest and more iconic part of the track.

Bring the car over to just right of center for Turn 9

Ben stays left and then late-apexes 8B, but already, Randy is carving left toward the high lat-g Turn 9, so their paths cross again. Then cross once more approaching Turn 10.

Randy Pobst’s lap is marked in red, Ben Albano’s in green

Randy, after seeing these graphs, responded: “I have a new theory about Turn 9—carry a lot of speed in then take advantage of the camber change as the road levels out. It looks like I exit the Corkscrew faster and carry a lot more speed into Turn but can’t go back to throttle as soon as Ben, who enters slower but gets the throttle sooner and exits faster.”

Use rumble strip on track out

They’re driving a double helix pattern that would make Watson and Crick smile. Randy: “We enter Turn on similar lines and similar speeds, but it appears we switch, with me accelerating sooner.” (Amusingly, when I first sent Randy these graphs, he responded to their red- and green-colored lines with befuddlement—ah, forgot. He’s colorblind.)
