A typical Waiter's Corkscrew has:

  • A 2-Step Lever
  • A Foil Cutter
  • A spiral cork screw
2

Using the Foil Cutter, slice the foil around the stem of the bottle

3

Starting from the previous cut, slice up over the bottle. Remove and discard the foil from the top.

4

Position the Corkscrew in the centre of the cork and begin turning it into the cork.

5

Rotate the Corkscrew about six half turns, ensuring that there is one full spiral left above the cork; this is both to provide leverage and to prevent the Corkscrew from piercing the bottom of the cork.

6

Position the upper-most lever against the top of the bottle, and begin levering the cork out as far as you can. Switch to the bottom-most lever and continue to lever the cork out further.

7

Gently ease the rest of the cork out with your hand.

Enjoy your wine!
