The electric wine bottle opener is a must have for wine lovers for a number of reasons we will cover later. Such an electric-powered gadget will make life as a wine lover so much easier and, thus, so much sweeter. Here then are a few facts that you may want to know before buying this gadget for your own wine bar.
So What Is an Electric Wine Bottle Opener?
The electric wine bottle opener is a simple yet elegant device. The opener fastens to the lip or rim of the bottle to stabilize the mechanism plus the lower half of the mechanism is transparent so you can see if the unit is properly positioned.
Pressing the start button on the electric wine bottle opener causes the cork screw to rotate and penetrate the cork very similar to the old manual cork screw. With another press of the button, the internal corkscrew then starts to pull the cork out of the bottle.
Depending on the model, the cork is released from the wine bottle opener by pressing another button or by lifting the housing. In all cases the cork is preserved so it can be placed back in the bottle if desired.
Why Would You Want To Use an Electric Opener?
The next question then will be: Why use the likes of the Emerson electric wine bottle opener when a traditional wine bottle opener will do? When it comes to traditional wine bottle openers you have a number of alternatives – continuous turning, T-shaped, winged and pronged.
There are a number of benefits to be realized with an electric wine bottle opener:
* Ease of use – as you may have concluded from the discussion so far the tool is easy to use and everyone who can push a button will have success on their first attempt. If limited dexterity or lack of physical strength have been a problem in the past when trying to open corked bottles then this is the tool for you.
* Safety – Unlike the traditional wine bottle openers, the likes of the Emerson electric wine bottle opener do not have the sharp corkscrews exposed.
