New Favorite: Costa Brava Pneumatic Corkscrew

New Favorite: Costa Brava Pneumatic Corkscrew

This wine opener ($140) uses a stainless steel needle to pierce the cork. Pump the wooden handle of the corkscrew about four times to push air into the space between the wine and the cork. The air pressure ultimately causes the cork to release. This writer hasn't tried it, but it's on her product wish list.
