I love this new Wine Ratchet from Built NY Inc. Unlike the ubiquitous lever openers, the Ratchet puts a little effort back into popping a cork. Acting and sounding much like the ratchet wrench that inspired it, this corkscrew is cranked into a cork with a repeated twist of the wrist. At the base of the screw is a metal washer with teeth that grab onto the cork; then you just pull to uncork. Particularly nice is the inclusion of two interchangeable screws—a thicker, wire-type screw for older, longer corks and a thinner, auger-type screw for shorter and synthetic corks. Cost is $100, at BuiltNY.com.
