When my parents were here a couple of weeks back we ordered some pizza and I opened a bottle of wine with the Screwpull I've had for about twenty years.
It had opened thousands of bottles in its life. The bottle of shiraz it opened would be its last as one of the prongs cracked. The Screwpull was a wine opener I recommended when I worked in wine retail. It was easy to use and super reliable. The Teflon coated worm always got inside the cork and pulled it out with little chance of the cork breaking. With a reverse twist, the cork came off. Simple.
I received another Screwpull type corkscrew as a gift several years ago that I used as backup. It's my main corkscrew now. Somehow I do not think this one will last as long.
