There are hundreds of different corkscrews, but none matches the extraordinary, award-winning Rabbit. With 31 different moving parts, this modern, silver wine opener is an engineering feat built for speed. But you don't need to understand the mechanics to appreciate the pulling power of this little bunny. It overpowers the most stubborn, dried-out natural corks and synthetic closures with a user-friendly design. Close the "ears" over the neck of the bottle, and then raise and lower the lever just once. Lickety-split, the opener removes and ejects the cork without any effort on your part. Metrokane corkscrews are independently tested for 20,000 cork pulls; tests assume replacement of the spiral after 1,000 pulls. This high-tech tool comes with a handy foilcutter and comes in an attractive padded gift case. It's covered by a 10-year warranty. --Lynne Sampson

Highly recommend! Professionally open bottles of wine with ease! No need to struggle or hold the bottle between your knees!
By Mary B.
I love drinking wine, however, I save my money for wine and will use regular house-hold cork screws to open the bottles. As long as the cork doesn't break, I was happy with the cheap cork screws.
My friend kept talking about the Rabbit, and she too had the same mentality as I did. So when it came to buying her a birthday present, I thought that this gift would suit her great, because I knew she would not but one herself. She was super happy when she opened her present and tried it out straight away. When it came time to open the second bottle, I tired out her gift and well, that was the end of getting by using cheap cork screw openers for me!
The ease of opening a bottle of wine was shocking! No more holding the bottle between your knees or struggling to get the cork out with breaking it. It is worth using the foil cutter which is shaped like an oversized bottle cap because it will make your Rabbit last longer. Just fit it over the top of the bottle, squeeze, and turn to cut the foil off the bottle. Then it's Rabbit time! Position the corkscrew opener on top of the bottle of wine, pull the lever back, then push it forward so that the screw goes into the cork (whether it is a true cork or plastic), and then pull back the lever to pull up the cork. To get the cork out of the cork screw, hold the two Rabbit handles together, pull back the lever and push it forward. Very easy, great if you do not have a lot of strength, and it makes a lovely noise, just like the noise the bartenders make when opening a bottle of wine at your favorite wine bar!
I have bought the Rabbit Original Lever Corkscrew set for myself, and many people as present.
I hope that you have found my opinion to be helpful with your decision process to purchase this item. If this is the case, and where Amazon asks if this review helpful, please click "yes". Thank you!

One of the worst Rabbits I've ever bought
By Dr H
One of the worst Rabbits I've ever bought. The grip handle is a tad small, I have to constantly jiggle the entire mechanism and turn it at least 90 degrees after the screw unit is fully inserted into the cork to get the cork out of the bottle. Without the twisting pushing down on the handle results in the retraction of the screw, sans cork. Annoying. It's a bad product, there are other Rabbits out there that work normally and "grab" the cork properly. I'm not abusing the gizmo, but I'm definitely waiting for the rabbit to die. Would NOT buy this unit in the future.

Two Failures in One Year
By Tammy B.
I will never buy this product or anything from this company again. The first Rabbit we got at the beginning of 2016 lasted less than one month. The pin that allows the mechanism to pivot and remove the cork came out, could not be replaced by us, and made it unworkable. They quickly sent us a replacement which, in less than one year, had the same problem take place. Again, unworkable and we are outside the return window. (I assume that it is a manufacturing flaw as the first one we got, years ago, lasted us for a long time.) So, if you want to pay $40 to buy a new fancy Rabbit corkscrew EVERY year, this is your product. Or you can just go with the old standby corkscrew for a lot less money and hassle. And it only take around one minute more to open your wine, giving you slightly longer to savor the anticipation.
