The Oxo Winged Corkscrew is the easiest way to open that bottle of chardonnay or merlot. Its shorter wings and a longer body leave ample room for gripping the non-slip bottom collar and seating the corkscrew on top of a wine bottle. Turn the soft knob to lower the non-stick coated worm into the cork. Tired of breaking the cork? Worry no more. A unique stopper prevents the worm from traveling too far and breaking the cork. Press down on the sturdy, broad, die cast zinc wings to release the cork from the bottle. Just turn the knob counterclockwise to release the cork. Hand wash recommended.
