If you are ready to enjoy fine wine without a dash of cork deposits sprinkled by the annoying broken cork, then the APÉRO Nitrous Oxide Powered Wine Opener is what you need the next time you want to pop open a bottle of expensive Cabernet Sauvignon. Precision crafted from aircraft-grade aluminum, this piano black gun-like wine opener challenged the convention with a smooth, straight plunging needle as opposed to the traditional corkscrew and uses powerful nitrous oxide to push the cork out from the inside thereby eliminating the need to forcefully pull it out and in the process knocking things over, or giving someone a black eye.
The nitrous oxide is supplied by an user replaceable N2O cartridge, which is good for popping 40-50 bottles before needing to be swapped out for a fresh one. Not only will this nifty wine enjoyment gadget offers force-free cork removal, but it can do it in a matter of seconds at a press of the button. APÉRO Nitrous Oxide Powered Wine Opener can open any standard 750ml bottles, regardless if its natural or synthetic cork. Though it is not advisable to use it on champagne (duh, obviously!), sparkling wine or basically anything bottles that are unusually shaped. Its creators, Paris -based Guillaume Acier and L.A.-based James Lai, promised the introduction of N2O will not alter the taste of the wine in anyway and it is completely safe.
If you want to be the coolest wine drinker around, or simply want to say au revere to broken cork, then APÉRO Nitrous Oxide Powered Wine Opener is the only option. However, before it can become “the only option” it has to be funded on Kickstarter, which you can help by backing the campaign for between $99 and $240. And if it meets the set funding goal, you can expect to be greeted by this high-tech wine opener at your doorstep as soon as December 2016.
