How do you use this?
Debora on Mar 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is a waiters corkscrew with double hinge. You screw in the auger(worm) like a regular waiters corkscrew part of the way down but then you use the double hinge to grip the top of the bottle to give you leverage and pull the cork up

Waiter's friend corkscrew
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.

Got rid of my Rabbit!
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.

Good and inexpensive 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.

My Favorite
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.

Very professional
Appearance is very stylish and professional. With a few practice sessions you can open any wine like a Sommelier... all you need to add is the tuxedo!

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