Experts say waiter's corkscrews take a lot of practice and a fair amount of muscle to master but can be rewarding to use. Good Housekeeping is the one source we found that prefers this traditional method of wine opening, praising the Oxo Good Grips Waiter's Corkscrew for its rubber handle and ergonomic shape. The majority of user reviews on this product are positive. However if you prefer a wine opener that requires minimal effort, the Le Creuset Screwpull Lever Model Elegance (*Est. $100) or the Vacu Vin Corkscrew Winemaster (*Est. $40) wine openers are better choices.

Experts at Good Housekeeping test 24 wine openers and rave about the Oxo Good Grips Waiter's Corkscrew. The best place to search for owner-written reviews on this product is at Amazon.com.
