I approve: Cork Screw Bottle-Biner

Just a back story before I introduce this week's newest approved product. I am an avid wine drinker. Some may say "wine-o", but I prefer the term "wine connoisseur" (albeit most bottles I buy are under $10). I've been smuggling bottles in my purse from house party to house party for the past few years, and each time I can never seem to remember my corkscrew. It is because of this that I have become proficient in opening wine bottles in numerous non-traditional methods. There's the time Jack and I had to use a screw (yes, a single screw) to dig the cork out of the bottle. Not recommended. I've also been known to take the end of a toothbrush and push the cork inside the bottle-this one's a little more effective. Knives, screwdrivers, keys and pens are also good tools for pushing the cork inside the bottle as well. This method is not preferred. Not only is it difficult and painful, but also because it taints the taste of the wine. For me, however, I dislike this method mostly because I collect corks and if the cork is floating in pieces inside a bottle I am unable to add it to my collection.

There is little doubt...the corkscrew, hands down, is the best tool for opening a bottle of wine (imagine that.)

Now, for the forgetful wine-os like me, there is a CORKSCREW BOTTLE-BINER. This thing is phenomenal! It's essentially a carabiner (one of those metal clasps that people use for keychains if they want to appear rugged and mountainey; the equivalent of wearing North Face in states south of Iowa) What makes this carabiner special is not that it can hold 150lbs of weight or that it's made of reinforced steel but that it has a corkscrew attached! Climbing a mountain is hard. Now when you finally reach the summit you can celebrate! Go ahead, pop open that bubbly the correct way – without being forced to break the bottle over someone's unfortunate head!

The biner is available here for only $12. I think that this is definitely a reasonable price. But hey, that's just coming from a girl who has spent 20 minutes picking cork out of a bottle with a screw.
