No wine lover has ever avoided the problems caused by a poorly functioning corkscrew and we have bad memories attached to these failures. You probably will ask yourselves how to find a corkscrew that will work the best. From our options, a cool corkscrew should not only be rugged enough to use on the toughest corks but also a prefect decoration for your kitchen or bar. It should be fun to use, fun to look at and also servers as a fun conversation piece. Here we rounded up 10 Cool and Unusual Corkscrews and hope you like them.
1. Kangaroo Corkscrew [amazon]
Who doesn’t love kangaroos? Especially ones that open wine bottles. The cool new Kangaroo Corkscrew is just that, a sleek and sculptural corkscrew shaped like a little kangaroo with a handy bottle opener at the end of its tail. Just lift up its top half to reveal the screw, twist its head around until the screw is embedded in the cork and push down the arms to pop it out. Unfortunately, this one doesn’t hop.
2. Vintemp Waiters Corkscrew Infared Thermometer [amazon]
If wine could talk, it would tell you all about the new VinTemp Corkscrew. The only corkscrew in the world that can read the temperature of wine from outside the bottle. Simply place VinTemp on the outside center of the bottle, press the button, and read the display.
Warm Chardonnay-Not anymore with VinTemp Corkscrew!
3. Urban Trend Planetary Corkscrew [amazon]
What do automatic transmissions, electric screwdrivers and corkscrews have in common? They all use planetary gears: the “sun” or the center gear engages all three “planet” gears or outside gears for maximum efficiency. Planetary gears are ideal where ruggedness and high torque are needed. Opening a corked bottle can really be a chore. With the 6:1 gear ratio in the Planetary Corkscrew, removing the cork is easy.

6. Twist Corkscrew and Decanting Pourer [amazon]
Corkscrew Blade Twist with rubber coated surface, practical wings and the Teflon-coated spiral.

Bouquet and taste come to the forefront as the wine passes through the rubber coated stopper of Decanting Pourer Blade. Four small holes replicate the patented Venturi principle, providing further aeration and enhancing the taste experience.
