A handy little gadget to have!

A great little gadget for the host or hostess, the Waiter's Friend combines a corkscrew, foil cutter and bottle opener. It has an elegant, curved design and is great value for money.

Just ordered heat added! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAhahahHAHAHAHAHahHAHhaHHAhahH

Versions of these that aren't curved can be picked up in any supermarket for a lot less than a quid.

Before you order this, a word of warning. There are 2 types of waiters friends; single and double lever and it is very easy to break the corks with a single lever as this cheap one is. Go ]here and scroll down to Model 60 and you'll see what I mean. It is definitely worth buying the double lever, trust me I have been using waiters friends for many years and I know what I'm talking about (I have been in the wine trade for 30 years!)

What's wrong with the type that you screw in and pull the two levers down? They generally seem to work perfectly.

I bought one that looks exactly the same as this from Woolworths for 48p.

Nice little bottle opener, very easy to use.

Thanks

2 things; firstly the part that goes into the cork is like a screw, ie a solid centre with a thread on the outside and in some corks, especially some polymer/plastic corks which sit very tight, this seems to make the cork even tighter (can also happen when natural cork has dried out by the bottle not being stored horizontally). The preferably shape is a hollow bore type and this goes through the cork much easier. The second thing is the arms on those corkscrews often weaken in time and eventually snap, particularly when you are struggling with a very snug cork.
