I picked up one of these little gas-powered gizmos today and just now gave it a try. Slick! The foil cutter works easily, the needle penetrates the cork, a press of the button, and foop! Out comes the cork. And with no cork-crumbs floating in the wine, as has been the case with my old winged behemoth. And one more smooth motion pushes the cork off the needle. I like it. No muss, no fuss. $19.95.

Be careful, I've heard horror stories about bottles blowing-up before the cork pops out!

Yep....I've heard em too! I'd also be careful uncorking synthetic corks.
