I have seen these in store at Poundland and Yes Everything a pound (that has no web site). A bargain at a pound.

That should be a mega bargain if its the same as this @ Play.com

Looks to be the same. Can someone confirm?
Voted hot and repped

I don't think it looks the same - the handles are a different shape and everything.
Be aware that there is a reputable brand making these corkscrews called SCREWPULL - which is part of the quality French kitchenware company LE CREUSET. The Screwpull ones are great, very reliable.

But there are also a lot of cheap imitations which break after a couple of uses. I'd be reluctant to buy a non-Screwpull one. All of my friends who bought cheaper ones have had them break.

I bought one from Ponden Mill and that broke after 6 months. Not very good qulaity materials used.

at a pound you can't really complain if it breaks after a few months i'd risk it for a biscuit

Er, the Screwpull one is £44 on Amazon - I would hope therefore it is 44 x better!

But these will do for novelty dinner party moments, just buy a couple as back-up.

does it come with a foil cutter?

Oh I would ... and have done! - not this item though

My local Poundland store is quite happy to refund items that are faulty or not fit for purpose. I know they can't argue, but surprisingly they don't and see it as a service - the store only knows there's a problem with an item they stock if people tell them about it.

I know it may only be a pound, but a pound is a pound in my book - and the store manager wants his store to be associated with low priced bargain goods, not cheap tat so we both win.

Don't know if all Poundland stores are like this - maybe I'm lucky as mine is relatively new and has a manager that seems to care about the items he stocks.

i bought the play one - it has broken already! Although to be fair it did get abused... :o)

Basically the cogs slip and handle ends up permanently at the end of its rotation so you can't use it. After a bit of DIY it should be operational again although can't see any screw/torque holes!

The Poundland one has critical parts made from plastic. Others, including the 'Play' one, are metal - . None of them like plastic 'corks' and will jump the notches on the cog rendering them useless

Hey people....reality check.....IT'S A POUND!!!!
it's not gonna have a titanium handle, or tungsten screw....IT'S A POUND!!!
YES....A POUND!!!

Am off to town on saturday to buy 6. If one breaks after a month or so....I'll replace it!!

lmao

If it breaks as/after I use it once, it isn't worth a pound. Last "cheap" one of these I had didn't open 1 bottle before breaking.

wow a premium design cork opener for £1!!! Hot!!!!

I bought a similar one for £4.99 and it broke after a couple of weeks.....it did get a lot of use though...
