I love a nice glass of wine once in a while. But I have to admit, I’m not skilled with a corkscrew. I’ve been known to get it stuck about halfway into the cork and then call for help. And by call for help I mean hand the bottle with the lodged corkscrew in it to my husband. So I was really excited when I found the Ozeri Nouveaux Electric Wine Opener and had the chance to review it.
First, it’s super cool looking. It has a very sleek design and it’s easy to hold, not at all cumbersome or tricky to maneuver. Beyond how nice looking this device it, it honestly makes opening a bottle of wine FUN and extremely easy. It’s actually so fun to use, I could sit here and pop open one bottle of wine after another. Of course then I’d be left to drink them and, well…everything in moderation. 🙂 It’s electric and rechargable, so I had to plug it in overnight when we first got it and charge it up for about 10 hours. When fully charged this wine opener can open 60 bottles on a single charge. I haven’t hit that mark with it just yet, but I will say that I haven’t charged it since we first got it and three weeks later it’s still going strong. I really like that since it would be no fun to need your wine opener and have the battery be dead. A long battery life is a great feature. One more cool thing: it lights up! The wine opener lights an electric blue color when being recharged and when in use.
Another great feature: the foil cutter. This is built right into the unit. It detaches but I love that it’s not a completely separate piece that could get lost. If it could get lost, I’d lose it. So this is perfect for me, and not only is it a great design, I also love the functionality. I’m not adept with corkscrews or removing wine foil. I’ve been known once or twice to attack with a fork. Go on, be honest. You’ve done it too. Well those days are over. You position this little foil cutter on top of your wine bottle, give it a squeeze and a twist, and the foil comes right off. It couldn’t be easier!
The Ozeri Nouveax Electric Wine Opener is super easy to use. Just position the corkscrew on top of the cork and press the ‘down’ button. It will push down into the cork and then pull it right out of the bottle. Use the ‘up’ button to release the cork from the wine opener. And that, my friends, is it! See? So simple! The model I reviewed comes with a great little pourer that fits snugly into the wine bottle to pour your glasses without spilling, and it comes with a little stopper to keep any unfinished wine fresh.
So now that I’ve told you all about it, want to see how it works? Watch my video to see this awesome electric wine opener in action!
Amazon prices fluctuate, but at the time of this review the Ozeri Nouveaux Electric Wine Opener is about $20 and the model that includes the pourer and stopper is about $26. This is a perfect gift for the boss at Christmastime, or a girlfriend who likes to have a drink now and then, or really anyone! And it’s very affordable and seriously fun to use. It’s like a toy for adults. If drinking wine weren’t fun enough, now we have this to add to the mix! I’ll toast to that. Cheers!
