This Mini Wine Corker may not look like much, but it is a great hand corker. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in durability and functionality. The Master Vintner Mini Corker works with sizes #7 and #8 corks of all compositions. Applying direct force to the cork ensures a proper seal to keep your wine protected. We would recommend using a rubber mallet to help insert the cork into the bottle. See our wine corker page for other options.
Hard on your hands.
If you don't have a lot of Bottles to cork this will do just fine. Easy to use with #8's
Works well with a rubber mallet thumps them right in just be sure to place your operation on a sturdy surface.moisten your corks with sanitizer.then they fit like a glove.
Soaking the corks in very hot water really helps. They slipped right in with out much effort.
I can't imagine anybody who weighs less than 175lbs getting this thing to plug the cork in! I can put my whole weight and still not get the cork in the bottle. It takes some force and maybe a rubber mallet would help, if you have two people. That said I've used it for many bottles and it hasn't broke itself or the cork. If you want to add your sweat along with the wine to the bottle, then this tough corker is for you! Simple but effective.
