Granite Base Wine Opener 3.9 5 124 130
this thing garbage Stand and base are fine, but the wine opener is poorly constructed and broke after a couple of months of home usage August 6, 2014
Great until it broke I received this as a Christmas gift for 2013. Worked great until the corkscrew piece got bent and starting pushing all of the corks down into the wine bottle. Is there anyway to replace this part? If you actually plan on using this opener once a week, you shouldn't expect it to last...... July 11, 2014
Better than expected I have had several similar wine openers but the quality of this one far surpasses the others. The opener is very smooth, requiring little effort to open the bottle and eject the cork. The granite base is very heavy, which I like. Historically we have had problems opening bottles with synthetic corks but so far all corks have been easily removed. July 1, 2014
Beautiful & sturdy The granite base and handle on lever are very elegant and make this product stand out. Works well and is beautifully crafted. June 27, 2014
Loved until it broke Got it for Christmas 2013. I loved the opener. Worked very smoothly until the last time I used it and it broke. Opened it up and the cork screw is all bent out of whack. Is there a way to get replacement for cork screw part. Husband said he can fix it. March 17, 2014
Granite Base Wine Opener We received one of these as a Christmas gift several years ago and loved it from the start. We recently purchased one for the couple that bought us ours. We had the base engraved with their initials and it looks great. I highly recomend this item for any wine lovers. December 3, 2011
Stylish Love love love it. We finished a small room in our basement as a wine cellar and added this opener. Classy good looks and makes opening wine bottles even more fun. Impressed the neighbors too. February 13, 2014
Be the sommelier in your home Beautiful and tastefully looking. Heavy, high quality and we had ours monogrammed. This will be the 4th opener of this style. The first one lasted over 6 or 7 years. The 1st replacement bought online (not from Frontgate) lasted about a year. The 2nd replacement about the same. Actually gave up on this style opener because the other online merchant blamed synthetic corks as the cause for early failure. Had been using the hand-use openers since until I saw this model. So far (over a week), I can tell this unit is more heavy duty. Hope it lasts many years. But a small beware: 2 of the 4 base mounting screw anchors in the granite were 'not done right in China' and spun loose requiring me to use some JB Weld as I didnt feel like shipping 30 lbs back and forth. My fix is working so far. January 4, 2012

Answer: 
Yes, I know exactly what you are feeling. I pushed the cork in the bottle twice and had to look up instructions online. The correct way to use it, is to start with the handle in the back position, away from you. Put the bottle of wine in, hold it, pull the lever towards you and THEN release the bottle, pull the bottle out towards you and as you push the lever back into the starting position the cork will fall out. Hope that helps.

Answer: 
To pull a cork place the single handle horizontal with the base and back towards the upright. Place the bottle into the opener with your right hand and squieeze the handles together to hold the bottle. While holding the handles with your left hand, grasp the single handle with your right hand and pull the handle through its full motion until it is over 180º from its' starting position. The first 1/2 of the movement drives the corkscrew into the cork. The second 1/2 of the movement extracts the cork. Remove the wine bottle leaving the cork in the opener.
Drink wine.
To reinsert the cork, without changing the position of the opener, put the bottle back into position and reverse the position of the single handle. To instead remove the cork from the opener, without a bottle in the opener reverse the single handles position and the cork should fall out.

Answer: 
Start with the handle in the up position about 2 o'clock. Put the bottle in and grasp the handles then pull the handle toward you. At the end the bottle will either release from the cork or you can pull the bottle slightly towards you to release the bottle. Then pinch the handles together and reverse the motion of the arm, this will remove the cork from the opener.

Answer: 
It should be all the way back when you start. Pull it straight forward and take your bottle away. Then, pull the handle back and the cork will pop out.

The handle should be in the back position. After grasping the bottle in the clamp, pull the handle forward (do not move from this position). Release clamp and there you have it! To release cork, return handle to back position.
