    Here's the deal:This corkscrew is the absolute best you can buy for the money, hands down, especially if you work on the floor for service in a busy, fine dining restaurant environment. That's not to say you can only use it in that environment, but this is the best one for that. It's quite effective, stylish, strong, ergonomic and made of durable materials. It rarely, if ever breaks the cork, due to its double-hinged design and truthfully, if a cork does break while opening wine, it's generally the fault of the operator rather than the corkscrew itself. [...] I'm a professional sommelier (Advanced level though the Court of Master Sommeliers) and I find it quite amusing whenever I see professionals with [$] Lagiole corkscrews thinking that somehow it makes them better wine stewards because they have one. Purchase a "pulltap" brand, and use the money saved on a wine book, you'll be glad you did.

    I purchased this to use primarily for opening wine bottles. It was a big disappointment in that regard. The blade/cutter works just slightly better than a spoon. The corkscrew is difficult to line up and center on the cork and therefore goes off the mark, sometimes breaking the cork edge. Furthermore, it is quite long so you have to pay attention to cork depth so you don't pierce the cork and push cork pieces into the bottle. I've opened many wine bottles with this type of opener and especially like double hinge openers like this - just not this one. On the plus side, it is a nifty bottle opener/can opener and has a nice feel in the hand. As a wine bottle opener, it is functional but not my first choice. I read other reviews and bought it based upon some of the raves, but was pretty disappointed.

        Comments about Wine Enthusiast Pulltap's Double-Hinged Waiters Corkscrew:

        This corkscrew works well AND it is inexpensive. The longer pull makes it a good choice for wines with particularly long corks or for those who are "challenged" in using waiter-style corkscrews.

          I ditched my Rabbit corkscrew for this one. It's a great price and easy to use. I suddenly prefer my waiter-style corkscrews to the "techy-looking" rabbits and screwpulls. Long live corks! I love the ceremony of uncorking a bottle of wine.

          Pros

            Cons

            • Serratated foil cutter

            Best Uses

              Comments about Wine Enthusiast Pulltap's Double-Hinged Waiters Corkscrew:

              first, I made the mistake of buying it here. When I searched for this, I didn't find anything, but after I'd already ordered it, I discovered True Fabrications via a friend - I think you can purchase from there for about half the price here.

              Also, the foil cutter sucks. Next to impossible to get a clean cut with the serrated blade. Why they refuse to make a double-hinged "waiters corkscrew" with a non-serrated blade is beyond me.

              Aside from these drawbacks, I would recommend it.

                My first introduction to this Pulltab corkscrew was in Montalcino, Italia when a clerk threw it in my bag as a free bonus for my purchase. After trying it, I wished I had gotten some more. The double hinge makes it very easy to use, even for a nonprofessional like me. I was very happy to find the same item back here in the States on the WE website. Although it isn't "free" like the one I got in Italy, it is relatively inexpensive compared to may contraptions on the market. Unlike many of those (and I have tried a bunch of them), this is by far the most reliable and very easy to use. I purchased several to give to my grown children.

                    It does what it should do, but doesn't do it any better than similar corkscrews at half the price.
