Le Creuset Screwpull Lever Wine OpenerIn recent years, my husband has become a bit of an oenophile (a cool word for wino... I mean lover of fermented grape juice... I mean connoisseur of fine wines... yes that's it).

For better or for worse, I don't always share his sophisticated palate. I'm more of a dessert wine drinker myself. Give me something caramely, smooth, and sweet. A little Pedro Ximenez and I'm good.

But no matter how fine (or rudimentary) your palate is, you still need that certain special tool to get into your bottle of choice (providing you are indeed drinking wine that comes from a bottle and not a box).

The question that remains, however, is whether or not you need that special tool to cost more than the bottle of wine.

Perhaps if you're a wine shop owner, a viticulturist, a high end bartender, restaurant owner, or server, then the Le Creuset Screwpull Wine Opener Set could be a worthwhile investment for you.

The set includes a Screwpull lever model wine opener, foil cutter, and wooden gift box. The Teflon-coated corkscrew removes even the toughest corks, and in fact will open 2,000 bottles before needing to be changed.

The Screwpull boasts an ergonomic handle and molded rubber cushion to ensure a secure grip (very important when serving wine whether in a restaurant or a tasting room). It's also dishwasher safe and comes with a 10-year warranty.

But unless you fit the above criteria (or are simply a snob or want to give a gift to a snob-- there's nothing wrong with that), then you may want to put your money into buying more wine instead of buying the fanciest wine-opening gizmo around. It's up to you. Just don't tell my husband about it, because there's no way he's getting one.

Another lever-style corkscrew to consider is the Metrokane Vertical Rabbit.
