Best waiter's corkscrew on the market.

I have only heard wonderful things about Pulltaps. I was really hoping for a customized one (will still pursue this for personal use), but the Pulltap's website is not very user friendly. It didn't seem worth the effort for something I'll be using for work, and I trust Wine Enthusiast.

Quality of the product from personal experience and great reviews. Most efficient way to open a wine bottle without resorting to large devices such as the Rabbit.

Did not want a sub-$10 waiters corkscrew but did not want to shell out a hundred bucks for a top notch unit, this one was a good compromise (as yet sight-unseen) to rid my use of a rather bulky opener I currently use at home.

Best corkscrew

I've used one of these at home for over ten years. The screw finally broke off in a cork but believe it to be good quality.

My neighbor has this item and it does a great job opening wine. Price was good but shipping was too high. Just saying!

After working in a wine bar I only use double-hinged waiters corkscrews but they are hard to find in stores. I'm looking forward to trying this version of my favorite.

Looks sturdy, want something practical; not ready to spend a lot on a basic tool (yet).
Marianne B on Jan 16, 2015
I tried this corkscrew at my brother's house and found it to work better than the one I have at home.
Rocio W on Jan 10, 2015
the pulltap is known to be the top tool used by waiters.

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.

it's a repeat purchase,at least 12
as a wine consultant/educator I open 12-20 cases of wine a week.It is the only tool used in my 5
case,80 person weekly class.Other types passed over by all attendees.Haven't found an equal at
any price point.

Absolute best!!!!!!!!

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.

classic reliable corkscrew
Most reliable corkscrew I've owned or used.
