The Best Corkscrew in the World
I have tried a lot of corkscrews and most were not up to the
job. A couple actually broke! So it was a joy to find the Screwpull, which
hasn't met a cork it could not pull.

|The Screwpull comes with a handy foil cutter.||Place the foil cutter on top of the bottle and give it a quarter turn.|
|The foil comes off very neatly, exposing the cork.||Now we are ready to use the Screwpull.|
|Place the Screwpull on top of the bottle and squeeze the handles firmly. Lift the lever which extends the worm (the screw) fully.||Closing the lever forces the worm into the cork.|
|Lifting the lever extracts the cork from the bottle! Wasn't that easy?||Removing the cork from the Screwpull is even easier. Hold the Screwpull firmly. Best to do this over the counter unless you want the cork to fall on the floor.|
|Lift the lever...||and close the lever and the cork drops free. That's it. We're done. Now it's time to enjoy our wine!|
|The Screwpull is not a wine snob. It works equally well on Belgian beer. Here I have one of my favorites, a bottle of Lindemans Kriek. To quote from the label: "Lindemans Kriek is a lambic made from local barley, unmalted wheat, and wild yeast. After spontaneous fermentation, the lambic is aged in oak. Black cherries are added creating a secondary fermentation and yielding a beer of exceptional flavor and complexity." If you've never had it, treat yourself to a bottle sometime. You'll be glad you did.||The Screwpull positioned on the bottle of beer. It takes longer to read this sentence than it does to remove the cork.|
|Open, close, and open again and the cork is out! The Screwpull is the corkscrew of the future!||Time to enjoy my beer. I didn't even have to work hard for it like I would with an old fashioned corkscrew. You will notice the beautiful red color the cherries give the beer. Enjoy!|
