One popular corkscrew isn’t actually a corkscrew at all because there is no “screw” part to it. Upon initial examination, it can be difficult to understand how it’s supposed to remove corks from wine bottles at all, leading some to think that the name “Ah-So” comes from the reaction people have once they see how it works — and it does work well, though not consistently enough to warrant using as your standard cork remover.
How to use a CorkFork:
- Grasp the wine bottle firmly by the neck
- Gently insert the longer prong between the cork and the bottle
- Insert the shorter prong on the other side of the cork
- Work the two prongs down along either side of the cork in a back-and-forth motion
- Once both prongs are fully inserted, pull and twist to remove the cork
Advantages of the CorkFork:
- Easy to store
- Safe to carry in your pocket
- Relatively quick to use once you get the method right
- Provides an intact cork for reinsertion or use elsewhere
- Best if not only means for removing dried, crumbling corks
- Best if not only means for removing corks when a traditional corkscrew has failed while chewing up the center of the cork
