Granite Base Wine Opener is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 278.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad because it broke We received this wine opener as a gift some years ago and we have put it to good use. Unfortunately, a metal piece in the screw mechanism has broken/snapped and the only way to fix it, as per Frontgate, is to buy a new one. Even though it is out of warranty, I am sorry to hear that from a company as well known as Frontgate. I wasn't expecting anything for free but was expecting better customer service and answers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks nice, but... Looks nice, but it is just not durable. The rubber that hold the bottles in place quickly compresses to the point where they no longer hold bottles in the correct position. The mechanicals inside of the elegant looking housing are made from plastic and pot metal, which break ever so easily when the cork in a wine bottle is in tightly. If you only open a few bottles each year, you'll probably luck out, but if you open several bottles each week, your opener will quickly disappoint you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recommend Absolutely love these wine openers. This is my third one that I have bought as a gift and it is a really statement. Looks much more expensive than it is! Highly recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great but doesn't last. Received this as a gift and it looks great on the bar but unfortunately it is not made very well. The tightening screw stripped and will not hold. It is now useless. If they upgraded the construction, I would consider buying one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after 1 year The opener broke after only one year of infrequent use. I contacted Frontgate and was told that since the one year warranty is up they are unable to help me. So if you’re interested in buying an overpriced wine opener that will maybe last a year, this is the one for you

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Opening mechanism is not rugged. Limited time use. I have had to replace the major mechanism three times in the last three years. Works great for the first few months then it gets difficult to open the bottle then after while it fails. Then they never have a replacement in stock so i have to buy a whole new opener.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work I've had one of these wine openers before and loved it. This one flat out does not work! The screw goes into the cork and when I pull the lever back, the screw comes out of the bottle and the cork stays in - now with just a hole in it where the screw went it. I need to return it but haven't had time. Not sure if I'll ask for a replacement. Too bad. I loved the one I had that WORKED...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't Last Long Term We really like this wine opener and how attractive it is, but unfortunately our second opener has now broken. Each of them lasted for a few years. The first time, we were able to just buy the replacement opener. This time, they have told us we have to buy an entire new item, which obviously doesn't make sense since the granite base is still perfectly fine. I was able to find just the opener on Wine Enthusiast, but am really disappointed in Frontgate's customer service on this. They usually do better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Granite Base a wine Opener We absolutely love our wine opener (and re-corker). My husband and I enjoy a glass of wine daily, and have actually had “fun” with this item. Together we (grown adults, both over 60!) watch carefully and act like kids as the cork is reinserted perfectly into the bottle! We don’t have to worry with the bottle leaking when we lay it back in the wine cooler as we would with other wine stoppers! PLUS, It Is Absolutely Beautiful!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Very Functional Looks great, but not very functional. It never really pulled the cork completely...I always had to play with the bottle to fully extract the cork. After 18 months I encountered a hard cork and the handle broke off. This exposed construction that indicated the opener was really not ment to be used. Makes for a good conversation piece, but not designed for use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy opening a bottle of wine We had bought three of these wine bottle openers.But the second last did not last as long. The handle which comes forward has loosened too much to be able to use. I will send pics and I was told that I would receive partial reimbursement . Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Granite Wine Opener This granite wine opener is awesome and a perfect compliment to our granite wet bar area! If you cannot figure out how it works, it will push your wine cork back down into the bottle vs pulling it up and out of the bottle! Lol, any smart person can figure this out and those that cannot, should just use the hand wine opener! I have bought this as a gifts and all that received the granite wine opener has loved them!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will not open wine I'm giving 2 stars simply because it's pretty and I'm hoping Frontgate makes things right and either replaces the item or refunds my $. I'm reporting the same thing that many others are. The screw is no longer piercing or pulling the cork out so we are unable to open the wine. I know it was put together correctly and is in the same condition it was when we were able to open the first few bottles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Granite Base Wine Opener This impressive wine opener is the perfect addition to our wine cellar. It has a grande presence and is situated as a focal point in the room. It is heavy and easy to use, yes I recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This wine opener pushes the cork into the bottle. I’m so disappointed I have wasted $1000’s on damaged wine filled with pieces of cork.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Granite Base Wine Opener We loved the opener. Worked great/looked great until the base broke. The screw inserts on the granite base came lose and can’t be fixed. I wish it was made better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wine Openers This is my second wine opener from front gate. The first lasted several years and was used frequently. We have bought this wine opener as gifts for friends and I get lots of compliments for it looks and how easy it is to use. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second purchase The functionality is simple and easy. The only thing to remember is when taking the open bottle out the base is hard and not yielding. Beware

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Statement Piece! I bought this item monogrammed with my Husband and my initials on it. It came out better than expected. It's a very stately, and conversational piece that sits in our dining area. Once you get the hang of how easy it is to cork or uncork a bottle, you will love it. No more calling on Hubby like I had to do in the past, and I can do it in style. Great purchase!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DEFECTIVE PRODUCT!!!!! DO NOT PURCHASE!!!! The gear mechanism locked within a few months. Waited several weeks for a replacement part which also broke in a few months.Request for another replacement was denied!!! Was told it was my overuse! I DID use it to open wine as I thought that was the intended function! Looks good but don't expect it to work! Expensive junk!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost As Good As Advertised The black granite base is not truly black, it's more like a very dark gray with gray speckles, which was hugely disappointing. And the brass opening mechanism is stamped with a giant, vertical "FRONTGATE" on it, which I think is a very low-class thing for the company to do. And even though the corks I've been removing are short, the remover still isn't quite able to pull the cork completely out in a single pass, which is explained in the instructions as only being an issue with longer corks. For all the money this cost, I am actually quite disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very grand I purchased this as a gift for my in-laws for Christmas. It was a tad intimidating at first...since it was not put together. So they saved it until after Christmas. They are very pleased with it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wine Opener I ordered this even though it has Frontgate plainly on the side of it in large letters. However after unpacking, the granite base is scratched. Disappointed in the quality and will be returning.
