Screwpull Lever Model

No Scruples about Screwpull


Le Creuset's Screwpull Lever Model has an ultra long-lasting screw which allows for up to 2,000 bottle openings


We think that opening wine should be as simple as drinking it. Le Creuset, a leading manufacturer of kitchenware, had the same idea and with the Screwpull Lever Model launched a successful device. It gently, professionally and painlessly extracts corks from their reluctant bottles — four easy strokes and you're ready to pour. Its ultra long-lasting screw allows for up to 2,000 bottle openings without changing the screw.

The Screwpull is conveniently boxed and comes with a foil cutter. Just with any new device, it takes a little getting used to after the training session is over. But you'll never want to go back to using your old bartender opener ever again.
