Background to Screwpull

The Screwpull corkscrew was developed by oilman Herbert Allen, a prolific inventor. Born in Texas, to poor parents, he made his mark (and fortune) inventing tools for the oil industry and parts for jet engines. In 1951 he travelled to Europe where he tasted wine for the first time. One taste quickly turned into a passion and over the next 20 years, Herbert Allen assembled one of the best wine cellars in Texas.

His work on Screwpull began in 1975. The impetus for the invention came from Mr Allen's wife who had a particularly frustrating experience opening a bottle of wine. After trying a number of different corkscrews, all unsuccessfully, she gave up and presented her husband with the engineering challenge of a lifetime: to produce a corkscrew that would extract the cork effortlessly and perfectly every time.

In 1979 the Screwpull Table Model was born. It was based on the simple premise that a cork could be removed from the bottle without force, injury or embarrassment, and was an instant hit. Here was a beautifully designed corkscrew that fitted over a bottle's neck. The Teflon coated screw was easily driven into and through the cork, thus ensuring the cork is removed intact without pulling.

Today the Screwpull brand name is recognised world wide for its efficiency and unique designs, with products being sold in nearly every industrialised nation. Many new products have been developed since the introduction of the Table Model, all following the tradition of simplicity, style and performance. The range has earned a reputation with discerning consumers and wine connoisseurs alike as probably the best and most innovative wine accessories in the world.

I was very pleased with the quality of this foil cutter. It feels quality in your hand & is a nice matt silver. It's metal not plastic so feels weighty not flimsy. its nice & sharp too. takes the foil off in one. No frayed bits. I bought this when it was reduced down to £10. So it was just the right price i think. It comes in a really nice box set into a velvet effect box. This would make a great gift for someone along side a nice bottle of wine.

The wine bottle opener I purchased years ago came with a black plastic one which recently broke so I ordered this metal one instead, it's great and lots more stylish than the previous one. Would recommend to anyone

This is one of the more expensive versions of Screwpull's foil cutters, but the weighty-ness of the metal makes it a more satisfying item in the kitchen drawer. The rotating cutting discs are very sharp and cut cleanly through the foil, enabling speedier access to the all important contents of the bottle. I have knocked one star off though as the blades are very sharp and it would be all too easy to cut yourself whilst rummaging for it in the kitchen drawer. I'm not certain how one could make something that cuts foil and not skin, but if the boffins can put people into space then surely this is a small ask.

Purchased this for my husbands birthday as the black plastic version went AWOL a few years ago and he has always bemoaned it's loss. This one was gleefully received as 'the best present in years'. He appreciated the quality, ergonomic design and elegant brushed metal finish. It looks very stylish hanging on our utensil rack with the bottle opener (better there than in a drawer as the wheels are very sharp). Now we consciously look for foil topped bottles as its such a pleasure to use. A tool for life.

Good quality item and works well. Just be aware the picture does not reflect the actual product. I received one which has "Screwpull" engraved, and not le cruset as the picture suggests. Still a good quality item non the less.

Don't be fooled by this being branded 'Le Creuset' on the description - there's no mention of Le Creuset anywhere on the item package or item itself.

Also the packaging is ridiculous - in a huge presentation box which ends up (by the time Amazon have packaged it) too big to fit through a letterbox - so expect to have to go and collect it if you're not at home on the day it's received.

I haven't used the item yet - so can't comment on the overall quality etc.
