There are a lot of corkscrews on the market, and let’s face it, barely any of them are worth your time. Unfortunately, we know this from the experience of breaking corks, chipping bottles, and begging a higher power to save us from the madness.

Each winged butterfly and electric corkscrew we’ve come across claims to make opening wine more effortless than ever, but more often than not, they don’t compare to the corkscrews the pros use in restaurants.

What kind of corkscrews do pros use in restaurants? They use sturdy, elegant, and pocket-sized double-hinged corkscrews. And if you’re in a restaurant with a renowned tasting menu or reservation waitlist booked years in advance, they specifically use this Le Creuset Waiter’s Corkscrew.

Best Waiter's Corkscrew

This wine key is the go-to for all restaurant insiders for a good reason. A patented 2-step system ensures that you have improved leverage and can open your favorite Barolo or White Burgundy with the grace and skill of a sommelier.

The non-stick coated screw, built-in serrated foil cutter, bottle opener, and wooden handle make this a timeless tool, which can conveniently slip into any pocket, drawer, or bag.

It’s not just us hyping this corkscrew up either, with one reviewer describing it as “An attractive tool for the wine enthusiast, all in one clean package!”

After months of being out of stock, these corkscrews are finally back and ready to open whatever bottle you have stashed in your cellar. They likely won’t last long, so grab one while you can, and if you’re giving one as a gift, make sure to grab one for yourself too.
