Love this wine opener. Plunge it into cork and hit the button. Need to keep a spare cannister as guests tend to hit the button to try it out!

Awesome when it works, but some corks are just too snug for the air pressure approach to pop the cork.

HASH(0xa106c1f8) out of 5 stars Damn good fun, but not perfect Jan. 6 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
When this thing works, it can open a bottle in a flash - under three seconds easily. The foil cutters are a real boon too, giving a tidy finish.
Unfortunately it will not always work. Very tight-fitting corks, especially synthetics, will sometimes fail to be shifted by the pressure, and a regular corkscrew is needed. More irritating is a problem with long corks, where it is hard to get the nozzle right through the cork. If they had added 2-3mm length to the needle, this problem would not exist, which is very frustrating.
In summary, worth the money, but make sure you have a backup just in case.

HASH(0xa06e75e8) out of 5 stars A good upgrade Jan. 14 2008
By Maurice Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
Size: set of 1
I bought the less expensive corkpops (the one that looks like an ice-pick with a CO2 on top) and I was happy with it. I bought this upgraded one when the cannister on the first one got empty. The blades to cut the foil don't work as well as you would hope, but with REALLY good pressure they get the job done. HOWEVER, the really kewl thing about this is cork removal. As you might imagine after stabbing the cork there may be some resistance pulling it off of the needle. With the upgraded version you just twist the device and down it slides to the edge. That makes it work it for me. If that's not important to you or your don't want to spend the cash for the fancier cork pops spend the money on the simple one. It works, has WOW factor and makes you want to open bottles of wine. Just don't put it in carryon luggage!!!!!

HASH(0xa08572e8) out of 5 stars For people having trouble... April 5 2011
By Darren - Published on Amazon.com

This is a great product. I use it all the time. Occasionally I have to fall back to a manual opener, but that's maybe one bottle out of twenty, if that.

Some here complain about the cartridges not lasting. Simply push the button for only a quarter-second, and let the pressure do the work. I suspect some may be holding the button down until the cork comes free, which is far more than you need.

Also, if you turn the bottle upside down for a couple seconds before inserting the needle, you'll leave some wine between the base of the cork and the bottle. This will seal the pressure better, and it will get forced up between cork and bottle by the pressure, acting as a lubricant. (More needed on white wine, which you might have set upright in the fridge to chill, for example.) Once I discovered this trick, almost every bottle opened easily.

Once armed with these tricks, you'll get a lot of good use out of this tool.

This can't be called a corkscrew. There is no screw. You remove the capsule, insert the needle and press the button. Out pops the cork. The speed and force with which the cork is removed is shocking at first. I haven't tried this on my older Bordeaux with their superlong corks. I hope the needle is long enough. Great product, and great customer service from Amazon with fast, free shipping.

OK, now I've used it with two older wines (a 1986 Bordeaux and a 1989 Port blend). The only criticism I can make is that the cork is released with such force that some wine jumps out of the bottle when the cork is released. I am experimenting with wrapping the device in a paper towel to catch the wine that shoots out. Even though it's a small amount, it will land on your shirt, especially if you're having guests and wearing a nice shirt. With the long Bordeaux cork, the needle extended a few millimeters into the open space and was long enough to do the job. I don't know if there are longer corks than that one, but I will update if necessary.

As for removing the cork, the device splits in half, one part turns and screws down, moving the cork along with it. The cork can then be removed very easily from the needle. Often, I don't read instructions, so this was probably mentioned and is no fault of the Cork Pops device.

Update. After several more uses, with older Bordeaux wines, I can say there is no product that solves the problem of crumbling corks better than this one. Again, the trick is to be rather forceful. Once the needle is all the way in, depress the button, ride the device up with the pressure on the cork, and remove it in one motion. I now wrap the whole thing in a paper towel, which catches the little bit of wine that jumps out of the bottle during the process. Another benefit is that you can leave the bottle upright, keeping the sediment at the bottom where it belongs.
