Cozy Bungalow's Wine Bottle Opener and Vacuum Stopper + Giveaway

There are times when you really need a good corkscrew for your wine bottle.  I have tried a few different openers.  I've had my share of destroyed corks and even the one cork pushed into the bottle.  It was fantastic.  Not really, actually.  Then, there is always the problem of what to do with the bottle after the cork is out.  What if I don't want to drink the entire bottle?

I was able to try The Cozy Bungalow Corkscrew and Vacuum Wine Stopper.  

This is actually very easy to use.  I'll walk you through with my pictures.  We shall start with the wine bottle. 

You put the tip of the corkscrew into the middle of the cork, and you start to twist.

As the corkscrew goes in, the arms will raise up.

Once you get to the top of the corkscrew, you push the arms down.  As they go down, they will raise up the corkscrew and pull out the cork.  You can see that I was a little crooked at first, but as I got to the end it straightened itself out.

Then, you get to the vacuum stopper.  This is a great way to keep your wine fresh.  Nobody wants their wine to turn to vinegar.  You put the stopper in, and push it down with appropriate force.  You want it in the bottle, but don't push it beyond where it will go. 

You then start to pump the stopper.  Pump 40 times for 3/4 full bottle.  Pump 60 times for 1/2 full bottle.  Pump 80 times for 1/4 full bottle.  As you pump you will smell the wine, as it pumps the excess air from the inside of the bottle.

Then you are done.

You will only want to hand wash and air or towel dry your corkscrew and pump.  Don't put them in the dishwasher.
If you would love to get this set, you can find them HERE.
Cozy Bungalow is offering ONE follow a set of their own! This is a flash giveaway and will end tomorrow! Good Luck!
