I purchased a Sur La Table Lever Corkscrew Set that looks just like this but has a different item number. The action worked great; we loved how easily it opened a wine bottle. But after 14 months of very light use, the plastic broke where the metal attached to it
How does this work? I received one for Christmas but can't figure it out.

Best Answer:Lift the long chrome handle up. Put the worm on the cork. Squeeze (gently -- you don't have to crush it) on the short chrome handle. Now you smoothly push down the long handle. The worm will screw right into the cork. Take the cork screw away from the bottle still holding the small handle closed. Pump the long handle up and down and the cork with eject. It may sound complicated in trying to explain it with words but it is really as simple as you can get. It takes about 3 to 5 seconds to remove the cork from the bottle and eject it from the corkscrew. I must have two dozen corkscrews (I collect them) but this design is the easiest to use of all.
This works well with lifting the handle up. Place bottle on counter and line up with the corkscrew. Squeeze with one hand to hold the bottle in place and the outer handle pull down. Lifts cork very easily. I have been using this style for 12 plus years and works wonderful.
