Have you ever bought something just because it seemed really cool? Well this would be one of those items! I was literally mesmerized by the Nouveaux II Electric Wine Opener by Ozeri when it first arrived! It was so sleek and modern looking like something a rock star would have in their kitchen. With a few minutes of taking it out of the box I was reading the directions (which really isn't necessary- it's pretty self explanatory) and within 10 minutes I was opening a bottle of wine! Okay I wasn't opening anything- my new electric opener was opening it! LOVE IT!
I am not going to confess to being a wine-o but I will admit that I love a nice glass or two of wine on many occasions... such as celebrating getting through a Monday workday, or unwinding from sitting through a Tuesday dance class, or celebrating Hump Day, or just a nice glass watching Vampire Diaries or Grey's Anatomy on Thursday, and well who doesn't love a few glasses on Friday... well you get my drift! I love wine so anything that makes it easier for me to get my wine in my glass quicker and without cork in it is OKAY in my book! My husband had purchased me a manual wine opener a few years ago after coming home to me stabbing a cork through a wine bottle (it was not my finest moment but I couldn't figure out the wine opener) and the manual one made my life so much easier! I never had much of a complaint until I broke my first bottle of wine because I didn't have a good enough grasp on it when I was pulling up on the cork. Sure, Sure, Sure Mom said not to cry over spilled milk but she never said anything about spilled wine! I forgave my manual wine opener and tried to be more careful until the same thing happened not just one more time but two more times! My husband finally realized that somehow I had managed to bed the corkscrew making it too hard to open the bottles- this happened to 2 more manual wine openers (these aren't cheap either we paid around $25 for each of these) so when we found this alternative we were so happy!
With the Ozeri electric wine opener it is as simple as putting the bottle under the corkscrew and pushing a button! It even has a blue indicator light to help guide you. It's completely cordless and lightweight! It comes with a charger (yes NO BATTERIES!!!) and it can open 60 bottles on one charge. It also comes with a removable foil cutter which is so so important! I LOVE THIS OPENER.. plus your guests will think you are way cooler than you really are and will begin asking you advice on wine!
