    This is my first video review of a product, and the very first time I used this product. It’s a simple product to use, and works well.

    UPDATE 6/16/2009

    I must say, while the product works as indicated in the video, about a month ago, I heard a loud “crack”, and the corkscrew simply broke off inside the unit. I took the unit apart to see if I could do a quick repair and there was no easy way to do that.
    Based on that shoddy construction, and it only lasting less than a year, I can’t really fully endorse this product.

    As a person who loathes cheap, clutter, infomercial widgets I bought this out or sheer curiosity imagining it would be returned the same day. This opener is large, requires an electric plug and takes up counter space. But to my surprise it works amazingly well. There is a foil cutter that is stored in the base. The screw enters cleanly and seems to eliminate broken and shredded corks which can be frustrating. Hold the button again and the cork emerges from the device and drops out. I always liked my sturdy and simple stainless steel opener. But this turned out to be a keeper. It’s design is contemporary and clean, although it looks like it should do something more profound than just pull a cork. It’s also a conversation piece provoking smiles from guests. A pleasant surprise, highly recommended and especially so for a person who lacks hand or wrist strength.

    Surprisingly Good, May 6, 2009

    I got the Oster Wine opener as a Christmas gift. I’m a little leery of electronics taking the place of perfectly useful manual tools. I’ve used a “waiter’s corkscrew” for years, and I’m quite adept at using it. I also found the Oster’s design a little faux-modern, like it was trying too hard. So I was surprised at how easily it opened my wine bottle. It’s designed to completely pull the cork when pressing the down-arrow button, and then stop (I’ve read other negative reviews where it seemed like the reviewer reversed the screw direction once the corkscrew was completely inserted, and the cork, of course, never left the bottle). It surprised me that by simply pressing the up-arrow button it neatly, if a little slowly, ejected the cork from the device. It has worked on every kind of cork I tried – American cork, European cork, or synthetic cork.

    Why only 4-stars? Like a number of reviewers, I noticed that the Oster Wine opener started getting weaker after about three months. I examined the device, and noticed that its charging light (a translucent half-globe on the top) was not lit when I placed it in the charger. I checked the base of the device and, sure enough, one of the contact points was completely covered with black. I scraped the carbon off and applied a little WD-40 with a cotton swab; it has charged perfectly ever since.

    I should note that this is NOT a device for people with arthritis. You need a firm grip on the bottle, or the Oster just makes the bottle spin. If you have arthritic pain when gripping, or have a weak grip, this device is probably not for you.
