So what makes a good wine bottle opener? First, here is what you should avoid:

  • Openers that poke through the bottom of a cork.
  • Openers that compromise the integrity of the cork, causing it to break and lead to pieces of cork in the wine.
  • Openers that seem overly complicated to figure out and take more hands to use that a Swiss Army knife. Tools like these are meant to simplify a job, not complicate it even more.

It is pretty easy to judge if you have a proper opener, and if you don’t it is time to invest in one. There are so many new and improved models on the market that will take the hassle out of opening that great bottle of wine in no time at all. This is why the team at Shopcookware.ie have gone far and wide to source only the very best openers from a variety of suppliers. The six basic types of openers are as follows:

    • The mounted opener: Sturdy, durable and efficient; higher price.
    • The rabbit-style opener: The most efficient of all the openers; moderately priced.
    • The pump-style opener: Pulls cork by means of a vacuum, less chance of breakage; love/hate item.
    • The twist-style opener: Effective and affordable; not as flashy.
    • The waiter-style opener/Wine key: Inexpensive, portable; requires ‘manual labour’.
    • Whichever wine opener you prefer, you can rest assured that Shopcookware.ie has the finest selection of products you will find anywhere on the web.

Le Creuset Wine Accessories

The Le Creuset Wine Accessory range saw the light of day in 1979, when Herbert Allen, a tool inventor for the oil industry in Texas, sat down and decided to develop a tool that would remove a cork from a bottle of wine without force, injury or embarrassment. The experiment was inspired by his wife’s ire after having a particularly frustrating experience opening a bottle of wine, and went on to revolutionise the way we open, store and present wine.

The Le Creuset range of wine accessories includes the following products:

Lever Models: The Lever models are the perfect accessory for the modern wine connoisseur and take the headache out of opening older vintages that may have some cork disintegration, etc.

Cooling: The Cooler Sleeve allows you to cool your wine on the go and in style. The elastic sides and tapered top provides a snug fit; your wine cools in minutes and stays frosty for hours

Activ-ball Range: The Activ-ball range represents a new level of simplicity when it comes to opening your wine - all due to the inclusion of the unique, patented activ-ball technology. Now you can remove corks effortlessly and take the cork of the screw just as easily. All Activ-ball products come with a five year guarantee as well.

Screwpull Champagne Stopper: The champagne stopper is the perfect option for waiters/sommeliers/mere civilians who want to preserve unused champagne.

Le Creuset Foil cutters: A simple and clever innovation designed to remove the foil crown from a wine bottle. Le Creuset foil-cutters cut with a gentle squeeze and twist, neatly and cleanly. An indispensable tool for the wine lover!

Le Creuset wine stoppers: Le Creuset wine stoppers are great for preserving open bottles of wine. This product comes with three stoppers, as well as a comfortable easy grip handle and will allow you to keep wine for longer periods of time without the fear of oxidation.

The Le Creuset corkscrew range is a must for the wine connoisseur. Invest today and take the hassle out of opening, storing and preserving your wine.
