Accessories: Waiter’s Corkscrew Roundup

October 20, 2010

Allegiances to corkscrew styles run deep; mine lies with the classic and functional waiter's corkscrew (also known as wine keys). Compact (they're designed to fit in an apron pocket) and uncomplicated, waiter's corkscrews are easy to operate once you get the knack of it, allowing you to swiftly remove the cork using leverage. While the waiter's corkscrew is simple, it is important to choose a solidly made model; flimsy ones are not worth the effort. Here are three picks to consider.
