I have had another brand of rechargeable wine opener but like this one better. It is much easier to hold in place while it is removing a cork.
This is just the best thing for removing corks. It fits well and the batteries are strong enough that it does its job. It holds a charge a long time.

Since i received mine, i have given them as christmas and house warming gifts.
I bought this used on amazon. I already have one, and wanted one for my daughter. But the one i received did not work. I only turned in one direction and not the extract mode.I’m not going to blast the product because this seller should have tested it. (one star ding) it arrived in a box with labels that indicated it had been sent to some appliance repair. The product is a 5star for me–the one i have had for over a year. You do have to be careful and start it in a firm vertical position. I wish it capped the bottle top better but i’ve had very good luck with mine.
Only used it once so far but does the job. The previous opener from sharper had to be charged after every use so hope this one keeps a charge.
Sharper Image Rechargeable Wine Opener : The cord should be into the base not into the unit itself. It is an inconvenience when you must dis-connect cord each time you use.
Best corkscrew we ever had and so easy to use. A friend, who is a gourmet cook, gave it to my husband, also a gourmet cook. Have to say it might be on its last leg right now, but then we have had it five years and used it 4-5 times a week. Just bought a back-up, and we have given them as gifts.
This is voice to text and i’m not gonna spend a lot of time editing it so hope it makes sense for you there are some typos we’ve had this for a few years and it’s worked great but all of a sudden it stopped charging and we’ve got a cork stuck up in it i read all of the reviews here starting with the bad reviews first and was minutes from throwing it all away but i’m a fiddler and i don’t mean playing the violin or the devil went down to georgia what i mean is i started trying to twist the unit which doesn’t open by the way i started trying to bend it and all of a sudden i noticed the little blue line inside was flickering so i fiddled with it more because it meant the battery had some charge on it and i messed with the buttons that send the corkscrew up and down i tried to press it sideways when i was pressing the up down buttons down and i fiddled more no more than five minutes by the way and in between the bending and slamming it against my chair and although all this sounds crazy and the ‘playing’ with the buttons that control the cork screw up or down along with trying to put some pressure bending this back-and-forth somehow all of a sudden the corkscrew started working and the cork came out and now it works so i’m convinced this thing isn’t breaking and those of you that think it did if you’d gone through the same crazy iteration and sequence of events for five minutes you may still have your working corkscrew i think there are some things at some point of life years that require fiddling and do because either dirt or dust get under the switch or just like battery contacts inside of any battery operated item that sometimes you can clean out with an eraser cleaning residue buildup on the contacts i know you can’t get in here to do the eraser thing and the net net bottomline with this long winded explanation is i’ve now got a working corkscrew/ opener again hope it helps some of you.
Amazing and stays charged forever. Excellent gift for yourself or others. It also has been a good conversation piece and have opened many a bottle at parties just to use the darn thing.
By far, best wine opener you’ll ever have. So easy to use and even drops cork off.
One family member had this and we used it during family gatherings. Now there are 4 more among family members because the wine opener works so well. Great experience with seller, no problems encountered.
I have another just like it in florida. I tried another brand but hated it. I couldn’t believe it had high ratings.
Bought this one for a friend who loved the one i have. The foil cutter located in the base works well. It is fun to just push the button and the screw goes down into the cork and then push the other button and it pulls out even the tough to dislodge corks. And then it sits quietly on the counter for the next time. A charge lasts a long, long time.
I’ve only used it twice so far but it works exactly like is says it does.
Works great and holds a charge for a long time.
The first wine opener i sent was a gift to my sister & her family for christmas. They love it and state its a cinch to operate. They liked it so much, they suggested i purchase a second one for their son who was being married just before christmas and i needed a gift suggestion. I haven’t heard back with their review but hope they enjoy it as much as the folks do.
We were given an si wine opener for christmas ’09. Because we already had another opener, it sat on the shelf unopened until jan ’13. We opened the box and tried to charge it, but sitting on the shelf apparently is not good for this item — it had almost zero power. Since i live relatively near an si repair place, i called to see what it would cost to replace the battery. Even though 4 years into the product life and only a one year warranty, the si people decided to replace the entire unit with a new one — no shipping charge (i did send the defective unit back to them). I was flabbergasted — it’s extremely rare for companies to stand behind their products for more than 5 seconds beyond warranty — this was 3 years beyond. Even though often slightly higher priced, you can be darn sure i’ll check out si when i need other products they carry. Being a gift, i don’t know where the item was originally purchased.
My son gave this wine opener to be as a holiday present, and it has made life easier. After several years, it works great. It is small enough to keep plugged but out of the way.
Its not the strongest cork screw but does the job just fine.
Gave a couple away as gifts, they love them too. Product charges up easily and keeps the charge.
Have had two rabbit’s one broke, the other just quits after a few bottles and needs a recharge. So far the sharper image opener has kept a charge, easily pulls out wine corks and best of all, there is a light that shows what’s going on through the clear bottom of the opener. You can see where you’ve started the opener and if all is going well. Wife loves using it (she hated the rabbit).
Purchased two of these and they work effortlessly and reliably. Really convenient when i have to open more than one bottle of wine at a time.
