Doing these wine reviews has brought about a massive deficiency to my attention. We are severely lacking in the wine tools department. Specifically speaking – our corkscrew. We have two corkscrews. See photo.
The one on the right is a handme-down from my mom and I can’t even remember how long I’ve had it for. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear it is older than I am. Somewhere along the way, it lost an arm. He still functions, but it’s kinda pathetic. The one on the left was a freebie from somewhere. I know we didn’t buy it – it might have come with a bottle of wine at some point. It can’t open a bottle of wine, even though it looks like it should be able to.
I’ve been searching around on cooking.com and drooling at the fancy ones. I don’t think I can spend more than $50 on an opener without my brain exploding but they had some really cool ones that I’m coveting like this one – the Rabbit.
I don’t even know how to work something like that but it looks pretty cool and much, much more sophisticated than my wounded soldier :) They have free shipping on right now so I might have to splurge and do some shopping!
