Q: Should the needle pierce completely through the cork?
A: Yes. The needle should puncture through the end of the cork, allowing the tiny hole near the tip of the needle to pressurize the bottle.

Q: Does the wine opener work with plastic or synthetic corks?
A: The Perfect Wine Opener works with real and synthetic corks but the actual performance of the opener may differ based on the specifications of the cork - material, length, diameter and density. The opener is designed to open full bottles of wine. This opener is not designed to open sparkling wine or Champagne.

Q: How do I clean my wine opener?
A: Wipe clean. Do not submerge in water.

Q: When using the wine opener, how many pumps does it take before the cork pops out?
A: With typical results, your cork will begin to move within 5 pumps.

Q: My cork just popped out and made a loud noise. Is that normal?
A: Yes. This opener pressurizes the bottle to pop the cork out and sounds similar to opening a bottle of Champagne.

Q: Can I open a bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine with my Perfect Wine Opener?
A: No.

Q: Do I hold the clear guard while pumping?
A: No. Firming hold the body of the wine bottle (anywhere under the shoulders, where the clear guard sits). Holding the clear guard may prevent the cork from popping out.

A: Push the outer ring towards the tip of the needle, pushing the cork off the needle.
