Provides Extra Leverage When Needed
by Dr. Dan
I purchased the Pulltaps Waiter's Corkscrew (in chrome) because of its hinged double-lever design which adds additional leverage beyond the range of most corkscrews. I find this extra leverage really helpful when uncorking bottles with especially long or stubborn corks, as I no longer have to hold a bottle by the neck below table height and muscle out the final portion of difficult corks. Time and use will of course tell how durable it is, but to me, this corkscrew has a quality feel and heft. As for packaging, my corkscrew arrived in a plastic sleeve inside a silver cardboard box, which I found acceptable, as I was looking for a more useful tool than my custom-made Laguiole en Aubrac corkscrew with its aged French Oak barrel handle. It came in a solid wood case with magnetic closures and looks great displayed on a bar or counter, but has only the same leverage as any other corkscrew and cost a great deal more than the Pulltaps' $36.00.
Pulltaps Waiters Corkscrew

I am quite pleased with these products, especially the quality.
Like another reviewer I bought this corkscrew after reading a review on Epicurious. It's a big disappointment. Th worm, the actual screw part that goes into the cork, started to unravel by the third bottle of wine. After less than a week the worm was so bent it would no longer sit in the groove in the handle. Now, several months later, I can fold the screw (worm) back only until it makes a 30-degree angle with the handle. It has good heft, a shiny finish, and cuts foil well. But it is primarily a corkscrew and if the screw cannot hold its shape, it is a lousy corkscrew.
Best corkscrew ever!

After going through a couple types of corkscrews over the years, I saw this write up on Epicurious about the Pulltaps Waiters Corkscrew and I liked the look of it and the review was excellent. After receiving it, OMG WE LOVE THIS !!! Easy to use with smoothness and excellent results. I may buy another to keep in our travel bag when we go on trips.
No heft, seems knockoff..."boxed" = crappy thin paper thingy
by SJoyner -
IF this is "original" and authentic...let me just say it is quite cheaply made and feels flimsy. It is not at all what I expected for this price! I doubt it will last long with very loose and flimsy hinges. It seems plasticky even though it must be some kind of metal...it just doesn't have any heft. I was also planning to gift one...since it says it comes "boxed"...but that is a major joke! The "box" is lousy paper/cardboard that has a silver finish...duh! That hardly makes it "boxed"...as in ready to impress. So sad.
Solid and easy to use.
Love this corkscrew. I read many reviews on sites that don’t sell them and am glad I did. I love the weight and sturdiness of it. It is exceptionally easy to use. I bought a second one as a gift.
I bought this for my husband as a gift, I know he is going to fall in love when he opens it as one of his christmas gift. We are wine lovers and you need a good corkscrew to uncork your bottles, do not hesitate buying this one. Its a real Pulltaps corkscrew, and it has the best quality on the market. Shipping was super fast, great communication and arrived in perfect condition. Love IWA, I’ll be buying again and I’ll let my friends and family know about the excellent service and products on IWA.
Solid, high quality corkscrew

This is a solid corkscrew that works smoothly. It’s got good weight to it and is actually a pleasure to use. Everything about it appears to be high quality. I love it so much I bought another one for a present.
Item looks great- high quality material and came very quickly

It feels flimsier than I had expected from the reviews and description. The hinge mechanism is loose. It doesn’t feel as sturdy as I had expected. Surprised and wondered if it’s one of those well publicized knock offs. I doubt it because the seller is reputable. But it just doesn’t feel reliable and solid in my hands. You can get the same quality of sturdiness in the hands with a much less expensive device.

Excellent product. As advertised.
Pulltaps Waiters Corkscrew
It works beautifully; need I say more? I have several others that just weren't made right. This one is. I give it as many stars as there are.
Best corkscrew reviewed by food editor at Epicurious.
i was reading the reviews made by Epicurious. the food magazine. It is a test kitchen result plain and simple. They reviewed 10 of the top corkscrews and found this one the best of them all.
well made, easy to use and mostly reliable. they see the corkscrew as a foundation for any bar. and this one tops the list!
Not a cheap knockoff!!!
by Rob the snob -
It is exactly what it is supposed to be - a Pulltex Pulltap corkscrew. NOT a Chinese knockoff. It works like it's supposed to work.
Beautiful corkscrew – it goes really well with my stainless steel barware tools and shakers. I was surprised by the nice gift box that it came in, I might get a few as presents. The shape is classic, and so sleek, I love it!
