Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ’em) products and single out the most convincing.
We’re pretty devoted to pouring (and preserving) our wine at the Strategist, which is why we’ve investigated the swankiest swills on a budget, the “Porsche of manual wine openers,” and wine devotee-approved wine stoppers. Here, we’re venturing into the future of corkscrews. Below are the best electric wine openers on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.
Best electric wine opener with wine aerator and stopper
“I got this for my brother’s girlfriend who had mentioned at Thanksgiving that she had no way to open up wine bottles aside from my brother manhandling them. It was like the clouds parted and the light fell down upon me. Finally an idea for something to buy her. I am happy to report she texted last night to tell me that she loves it, it works great, and now my brother is useless to her. And then she remembered he cooks, so I guess it’s fine.”
Best electric wine opener on a budget
“The best one I have owned! And, being a wino, I have had several. Very quick and fairly quiet. The foil remover in the base is also the best of any that I have owned over many years, including some big-name brands. Claims up to 180 bottles on a single charge. I have just passed 50 bottles without recharging.”
Best standing, ergonomic wine opener
“LOVE IT!! I’m a wine consultant and I open a lot of wine bottles. I got tired of twisting a manual one and got this one. Why did I wait!!? This is an amazing opener. Works like a charm. All you do is line up the worm in the middle of the cork and press the button and hold it until it stops. It goes in easily and comes out slowly. Once it gets all the way out, press the top of the button and it unscrews the cork. Everyone at my wine tastings wants one!”
Best AA battery–powered electric wine opener
“I got this from my boyfriend, who is probably sick of helping me open my wine lol! This was smooth opening, and to get the cork out, just hit the reverse button and out with no problem!!! Seriously the best wine opener period! It’s lightweight and just looks sexy! Best gift for this wine-loving mom! I have the Rabbit opener, and it was always a pain to get the cork off the opener after … I’m definitely not using that one anymore!!!”
Best USB-powered electric wine opener
“My Houdini corkscrew opener was on its last leg and getting increasingly difficult to open a bottle of wine. Being a daily wine drinker, I was in the market for a solid replacement, and Vremi has never done me wrong, so why not buy myself this gift set? Worth it for the opener alone! Why have I never had an electric one before?! So easy and effortless to use. Not to mention all of the additional goodies that come in the box. I appreciate the sleek look of the products also!”
Best electric wine opener with minimalist base
“FANTASTIC! I’m a former bartender and always use my bartender wine opener, but my boyfriend couldn’t open a bottle of wine to save his life and was always handing it over to me. Most of the time it was no big deal, but occasionally he’d get teased about me having to open the wine for him. I bought him this for Christmas and all I can say is, I may give up my bartender’s opener and start using the Secura opener! It’s a winner! It’s very attractive as well.”
Best electric wine opener with chiller
“I really, really didn’t expect this thing to work. I’m always skeptical of motorized kitchen gizmos, especially for something that takes both force and finesse, like a cork. Personally, I prefer an old-fashioned waiter’s corkscrew, but the rest of my family likes modern openers. And as my in-laws were getting older, even the newfangled special-lever ones were getting harder to use. Lo and behold, on the first bottle, zoom, it took the cork right out without any drama. Same on the second. And so forth until now; we’re three years later and it’s still working fine for them several times a week.”
Best electric wine opener with battery indicator
“Works great!! I love the colors, too!!! Blue when you are using it; red when reversing. Pretty simple yet still so cool. It is also rechargeable, which is good. My sister has a battery-powered one, and is always having to find batteries to put in it. And there is a battery-life indicator (sweet!!!).”
