The ChampagnePopper

February 12th, 2018

An easy-to-use gadget for all lovers of sparkling beverages

ChampagnePopperOpening cork-and-cage bottles presents a major challenge. Champagne, prosecco, sparkling wine and large-format beer can be so difficult – or impossible – to open that you truly need a drink once – or if – you finally achieve your goal. No more!

Nancy Procunier, co-founder of ChampagnePopper, was inspired by a neighbor’s struggles with arthritis, including her struggle in opening a bottle of prosecco.

Enter a simple new design that leaves you wondering, “Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?”

The opener works using leverage. First, make sure the bottle is chilled (a useful hint before opening any sparkly). Next, slip the forked end of the opener between the bottle and the protruding cork. (A towel over the top helps ensure the cork doesn’t become a projectile!) Finally, gently pull the opener down till the cork pops out.
