Corkscrew, what is it and what is it used for?

The corkscrew is an essential accessory in any home kitchen, especially if you are a lover of good wine. This small tool is basically used to remove the cork from wine bottles, as its name already indicates.

On the market, you can find corkscrews made from materials as diverse as plastic, metal, or wood. Although the spiral is usually made of high-quality stainless steel.

If you are a true enthusiast of this premium beverage, we recommend that you always have a quality corkscrew close to you with which to uncork any of your favorite wines.

Types of corkscrews

Taking into account their shape and function, there are different models of bottle openers. At Arcos, we offer several options so you can choose the one you like best. From the traditional manual winged corkscrew to the new electric stainless steel corkscrews.

  • Manual corkscrew: also known as a screw or winged corkscrew. It is the most common in homes due to its simplicity. To use it, you only have to place the base on the bottle's mouth, turn the top until the spiral is fully inserted into the cork and wait as the wings rise to subsequently remove the plug.

  • Electric corkscrew: they have revolutionized the world of wine enthusiast accessories. They are much more comfortable and easy to use. Insert the bottle's mouth into the base of the corkscrew and press the button directly to start removing the cork.
