Looks similar design the rabbit proffesional corkscrew which cost £50+ (a few years back).
so a very good price

These have been £2.40 for ages now. Heated, even though wine is not my thing

why is this coming up as a 'South West' deal when its in Hammersmith?!

i even made sure i put my postcode in as it does say its under London at the top of the page. this site is ****.

Does "professional" mean alcoholics?

I have one similar to this came in a presentation box, used it once and realised its realy good at opening the bottles but then its near on impossible to get the cork back off the screw. Rendering it useless please consider this before buying mine has been sat in a draw ever since and i just use the old tried an tested twist and pull version., requires more effort initially but significantly easier to get the cork off.

You dont need these if you buy the good stuff with a screw off cap.

This is a fantastic price for an excellent corkscrew. I bought it last year for ~£5 and it is exceptionally easy to use.

@scribbler - On the Sainsbury's version (and other "rabbit" style corkscrews I have used), you lift up the handle, clamp it on the bottle and then push it down to get the screw in the cork. Then left it up and the cork is out. To remove the cork, simply push the handle down again (whilst clamping with your hands) and then lift the handle back-up. Voila - the cork has come off in your hands. Simples! [Obviously you may have a different design that doesn't have this - but it's fairly standard on this design these days).

@666FU - agreed, if you have a screw cap, you don't need this. However, a lot of exceptional wine still comes in corks, especially French wine. Try buying a decent bottle of Burgundy or Bordeaux with a screw cap on! I haven't come across any yet (that I have purchased "sur le contintent" at least).

@osoull - Have some heat!

This isn't online I take it?

This looks horribly similar to one I paid a lot more for at Christmas..

Although there is a lot of decent wine available with screw caps - generally new world wine though. So it's not an altogether invalid point...and without the benefit of some helpful indicators, I wasn't sure quite how sarcastic it was... (_;)

My honest advice would be to get a waiter's friend.

My friend has one of these, they are great!

Bought one, doesn't work with plastic ones (the most common), only with cork ones: pushes them down the bottle. Not classy

This is a corking deal lol... Thanks.

Showing £5 on website, not £2.40?

Read the instructions

Hold the cork between the handles and then pull the lever again.
