Manually opening a wine bottle can present a host of logistical challenges. Get that corkscrew in at the wrong angle, and you’ll either be unable to remove the cork or even worse, you’ll break it and potentially ruin your bottle of wine. The likelihood of breaking a cork with a manual corkscrew increases with the age of the bottle, since corks can get more brittle over time.
Today, electric wine openers solve this age-old problem for wine lovers — simply hold the corkscrew over the bottle, press a button, and the job is done. Electric openers are useful at parties when you’re popping multiple corks and are especially handy for older people, individuals nursing an injury or those who have mobility or strength issues.
