For holidays, birthdays, special occasions, and just because, we absolutely love entertaining! Whether we’re orchestrating a catered feast, showing off our culinary skills in the kitchen, or getting ready for an impromptu visit from some old friends, we always have some great wine on hand for our guests. To ensure that you spend more time with your guests than opening bottles of wine, it’s essential that you have the best wine bottle opener; however with so many options, you may be not be sure which is right for you. Below, bespoke concierge company Pure Entertainment Group makes this choice simpler, by outlining the most popular wine bottle openers, corkscrews, including our favorite, the screwpull classic lever corkscrew.

1 – Twin lever corkscrew
This corkscrew is probably the most popular of all of the wine bottle openers. Often with a bottle opener at one end, the twin lever corkscrew is comprised of two levers, which can be pushed down simultaneously once the worm (the screw) is inserted into the cork. With one push on the levers, you will see how simple it is to use this corkscrew.

2 – Screwpull classic lever corkscrew
As it name suggests, this corkscrew is made of a single lever that can easily and quickly open a bottle. With an elegant and complex design, this corkscrew is placed over the bottle neck. A simple lift of the lever inserts the worm into the cork, and pressing down on the lever extracts the cork. It really is as simple as that!

3- Waiter’s friend corkscrew
As its name suggests, the waiter’s friend corkscrew is the preferred choice of waiters around the world. Small and lightweight, this corkscrew resembles a Swiss army knife with its flat housing, unfolding to reveal a worm, a lever which can be used as a can opener, and a handy retractable knife, useful for removing foil from the top of the wine bottle and the cork. While your waiter makes opening bottles with this screw seem like a breeze, it may take you a bit of practice before you master the Waiter’s Friend, but once you do, you’ll be proud to show off your new skill.

4 – Wooden handle T corkscrew
This corkscrew is the most basic bottle opener in appearance and design. Simply built with a handle attached to a worm (often wooden or stainless steel,) the T corkscrew is often viewed as the original corkscrew. To use, the worm is screwed into the cork four or five turns, and a hard pull will extract the cork. Sounds simple, however, it may take a lot of effort to remove the cork, including securing the bottle between your knees!

5 – Electric bottle opener
If you prefer innovation over tradition, there are several models of electric bottle openers that can uncork a bottle for you with the touch of a button within seconds. Sleek, stylish, and a close runner up for our favorite wine bottle opener, these electric corkscrews are often made in black, stainless steel, or titanium, making for a gorgeous accessory to your wine collection.
