I purchased this item as a christmas gift for my wife. She was excited at first but soon learned that the cook screw was pushing the cork in the wine bottle inwards. At first thinking she was miss using it, I tried it and also felt that perhaps we were not using it properly. Since we don't drink wine everyday and once we decided it was defective, it was too late to return it since we kept the item over the 45 day warranty period. Overstock offered a partial refund but would not say how much. Really disapponted since all I wanted was an exchange.

Alas, it broke on first use, before we even had a chance to encounter the issues others reviewed. It's simply too poorly crafted to stand up to tight corks. On the plus side, the suction cup is amazing - it held on to our countertop like a hawk on a mouse! The good news: Overstock made the return very easy and gave me full refund. The bad news: I still don't have a good solid way of opening wine bottles other than the ole reliable waiter's friend.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It looks so nice on the site, but the plastic parts are really cheap. So cheaply made in fact, that the handle broke off in my hands on first use. I'm a 103lb female! Not used to breaking items so easily!

This makes wine opening easy & enjoyable!! So simple to use, no twisted by hand, no finagling the bottle to hold just right when trying to tug on opener. Place the bottle on the opener, slowly bring handle up, this drives the corkscrew into the cork, then slowly lift handle back up & Viola!! The cork is removed, even has a handy cutter to remove the foil top! Love this!

Love, love this bottle opener. The foil cutter works perfectly, the adjustment for bottle height is genius, the capability to remove the cork from bottle AND the screw using the same motion is so convenient and easy. Would definitely recommend this bottle opener to anyone! Also, the suction to counter is very strong and efficient. Very pleased and satisfied with this product!!
I ordered this as a gift and wished I'd ordered one for myself. This is very easy to use, looks sleek and professional, will go with anything in your kitchen or bar, looks fantastic on dark granite counter tops. I took 1/2 a star off because I think the suction bottom should hold a little tighter and 1/2 a star off because if you raise the adjustment bar(for bottle size) too high it comes completely apart. Ordering was a breeze, shipping costs can't be beat and even though it was back-ordered for Christmas it still made! I LOVE OVERSTOCK.COM and will ALWAYS start here first for my online shopping!
