This is a sturdy and well made wine opener that seems to have a much better system for adjusting the height than other units I have purchased and used in the past. Appears to be much less likely to break, which has been a big problem with other, similar units.
I love it when it works. but half the time it pushes the cork into the bottle. There are no instructions (and, really, its a corkscrew and you shouldnt need any). Sometimes the corkscrew turns sometimes it doesnt. I have seen references to this problem on other sights. For example-- You have to make sure the small sliding bar below the corkscrew is in the down position to allow the corkscrew to turn. Not sure what that means, but atm it is working. For the price it should work all the time.
This opener is not only sturdy and versatile, it's pretty as well. Our kitchen is all black and stainless and glass. This shiny metal and black stand looks great on the bar. I trust we will open a ridiculous number of bottles using this new Gorham standing corkscrew!
