We’re only a week away from Father’s Day, but no need to panic, you still have time to buy something cool and unique for that special father in your life! I have to say, I’ve powered through a few different types of electric wine openers, but this one is my all time favorite:
I tried a different brand that broke on the first bottle of wine opened. Literally, the corkscrew portion broke off in the cork – rendering the unit totally useless. Subsequent electric openers would work for a while, then refuse to hold a charge, forcing me to go back to my ‘old fashioned’ hand corkscrew instead.
This particular corkscrew is the premium version of all the ones I’ve ever owned and operated in the past. Not only is it super sleek in design, but it has extras that really make my wine connoisseur side super happy. It comes packaged in a gift box inside its regular box:
With each of its parts and pieces neatly (and safely) tucked inside an impact-resistant interior:
The simplicity of its design is one of the things I love most about it – simply place the corkscrew on the charging stand and plug it in to charge it up. It also comes with a foil cutter that has its own storage area in the back of the charger:
From the manufacturer:
- The first rechargeable stainless-steel electric wine opener with an infrared wine thermometer and digital LCD screen.
- Non-contact sensor instantly displays wine bottle and room temperature on its Digital LCD screen.
- New improved 2nd generation battery and motor effortlessly opens up to 80 wine bottles on a single charge.
- Digital battery meter displays on an LCD screen so you never run out of charge.
- Includes an elegant recharging base and compact foil cutter packaged in a black gift box.
Any wino knows that the serving temperature of wine is important, so having a built-in thermometer that lets you know what temperature your wine is in the bottle is a huge advantage to successful wine pouring. I love that the LCD screen also lets you know what the ambient temperature of the room is – sure beats having to go squint at the thermostat for the furnace to see what the room temperature is.
Plus, I’ll keep this in my wine room to make sure the room itself is being kept at the ‘proper’ temperature for the wines stashed in there. Better safe than sorry!
Great gift idea for the wino dads out there for Father’s Day – or get one for yourself so you have a cool toy to play with. You won’t be sorry – and the father in your life you’ll be celebrating next weekend will definitely be appreciative.
