I have gone through several vertical Metrokane Rabbit wine openers over the last several years and finally gave up on the model in favor of this one. Each Rabbit would last about a year and then encounter a bottle or cork that caused the screw to bend and/or jam in the upper assembly of the unit, rendering the whole thing useless. Even when I could un-jam it and get the bent screw out, the replacement screw wouldn't work properly.
I discovered the Brookstone model on Amazon and gave it a try - and I absolutely LOVE it. The design is more aesthetically pleasing and allows for better gripping of a wine bottle's neck, regardless of the shape or size. Removing a wine cork is smoother and easier than with the Rabbit. It feels much sturdier than the Rabbit, and the heavier materials (more metal, less painted plastic) give me hope that it will last much longer - so far so good, and I've intentionally thrown some bottles at it that gave flimsier corkscrews trouble in the past...
This is by far the best wine opener I have found. It is made of quality material, so it should last a long time. Now I no longer have to open the wine for my wife, she can open it for me. I also bought one for a friend and she thinks it is the best also (no it's not my girlfriend, it is a family friend - ha, ha).
You can't make wine opening any easier. Too sad they are so over priced. About 5 years ago they were sold for so much less!
