After a long day, I love to kick back with a glass of wine (or two). My preference often yields to white, specifically a Pinot Grigio, which is often not too sweet or tart, just somewhere in the middle.
While I will experiment with different labels, I often just pick up a bottle of Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Pinot Grigio as my go-to choice, confident in its taste and performance.
To open said bottle, and many others, I have come to rely on my Oster Electric Wine Opener. No frills and a bit lacking in style, it’s my favorite wine accessory because it’s easy to use, will open around 20 bottles on a single charge, and is simple to store.

It includes a foil cutter which easily slices open the seal on the top. Once the foil is removed, you simply place the opener on top of the bottle, keep a firm grip on the wine bottle, push the button on the opener down until you can tell the corkscrew has gone into the cork and pulled it out- you will feel the opener release once it has.
To remove the cork from the opener, simply run the opener again until it appears from the bottom of the opener. Easy peasy.
I have bought several friends one for their homes, and they too say they can’t live without it!
