Rabbit Wine Tool Kit

What's not to love about wine? Well, maybe the struggle to open a bottle from time to time. The last thing we want when sharing a bottle of wine is to battle, red in the face, with a stubborn cork. No need, the six-piece Rabbit Wine Tool Kit makes opening even the toughest bottle literally as easy as one-two-three. Get the details!

The Rabbit Corkscrew is really the muscle in this package. It's light-weight, as opposed to other corkscrews of its stature, and it makes pulling a cork not only easy, but also graceful. Just grip the handles firmly around the bottleneck, push the cushioned lever down into the cork, and pull the lever back up — the cork glides out easily. We've found that the Rabbit works best with real corks — the synthetic ones tend to stick a bit. Nonetheless, the Rabbit Corkscrew's "worm," the actual corkscrew mechanism, is non-stick, and the Kit comes with a replacement "worm" to keep you happily pulling corks until the ten-year warranty expires — and beyond.

The Kit also comes with a velvet drip-stop ring, a Champagne and wine sealer, a nifty foil cutter and a device for removing the pesky wax that dulled your last corkscrew. All of these items are durable and handy, and for the organizationally challenged, the kit comes with a storage case.

Price: $64
