Yeah, we have one of those in the pantry, too. We had another before that we had given away. Because we love wine, these things are gifts from people every year. Or at least they were until people came over and noticed that hubby was still using the basic wine key and their gifts weren't being used!
It keeps better in the frig if you don't drink it often. And then if it's a nice red, you can pull it out an hour before you want to drink it.Oh. An aiutomatic wine cork remover!! Hah!! I don't drink wine. I only use it to cook with, so I don't buy that kmuch. Not enough that I'd need an electric cork remover. It would usually hang around so long until it turns to vinegar!! That would mean that it's now no good.
Ooooh I hate the ones on the left....they're really popular thoughOh my yes, it's so important to take one (but not in carryon luggage, LOL) on holiday, I can't tell you how many times we have arrived at a hotel/resort/air bnb to find that there isn't one in the suite or kitchen. That should be a staple for sure! Or even when we visit a few relatives who don't drink, of course they never have one on hand and we have had to go out and buy an overpriced flimsy wine opener from the grocery store (which usually breaks after a week, LOL).
Yeah, we just call them wine keys over here. I remember my first job waiting tables at an Italian restaurant; the owner tested potential servers by putting two wine openers next to each other on the table and asking which one they would use:

If someone chose the one on the left, he would scowl and mutter something in Italian, then wave them away...
Ours is pretty much the same as the one JAS_OH1 posted a picture of, except ours is rechargeable instead of battery operated. It sits on a charging base along with the accessories (drip ring, aerator, rubber vacuum stoppers & vacuum pump).I've heard of wine sets, but not an electric one. What does it do?
We have one of those too....which was also a gift. It does work really well but it takes up so much room!
They also make these vacuum sealer things for wine that remove the excess air from the bottle if you (or a guest) have a glass and don't finish the bottle. Someone suggested something like that to me and my husband once and we laughed. An open bottle of wine at our house generally doesn't last a night, much less long enough to turnOh. An automatic wine cork remover!! Hah!! I don't drink wine. I only use it to cook with, so I don't buy that much. Not enough that I'd need an electric cork remover. It would usually hang around so long until it turns to vinegar!! That would mean that it's now no good.
