Three different electric wine bottle openers and corks

Tested & Approved

Our experts selected the Oster Cordless Electric Wine Bottle Opener as the best overall pick because of its sleek modern design, which includes a built-in foil cutter, and the fact that it's effortless to use. For a less expensive option, consider the Ozeri Nouveaux Electric Wine Opener.

A manual wine key corkscrew works fine enough to open a bottle, except when you use it at the wrong angle and can’t get the cork out, or the cork breaks and you have to try again, or small pieces manage to break free and need to be fished out later. It’s then that you think about getting an electric wine opener where you simply hold the corkscrew over the bottle, press a button, and—voila!—the cork is removed, and you can go about your wine.

Gone are the days when bulky electric wine openers were loud contraptions that broke easily. Now the corkscrew is hidden within a stylish gadget worthy of a permanent spot on your bar. In order to help you find your new favorite wine opener, we sent the top electric versions to at-home testers and evaluated each one on its design, ease of use, quality of build, effectiveness, and overall value.

From a mini opener perfect for traveling to splurge-worthy sets that include some valuable extras, here are the best electric wine openers, according to our at-home testers.

Who else recommends it? Best Products also picked the Oster Cordless Electric Wine Bottle Opener.

What do buyers say? 90% of 43,000+ Amazon reviewers rated this product 4 stars or above.

Its sleek design, ease of use, and an included foil cutter are top reasons our tester marked Oster’s Silver Electric Wine Opener as an excellent choice. 

Accented in black, this model opens a wine bottle with a single touch. As you hold the opener, the corkscrew penetrates and then removes the cork with one press of the button. The soft-grip handle is comfortable and ergonomically designed.

Our home tester was able to open a bottle of wine in a matter of seconds. She found it extremely easy to use and appreciated that it came with its own foil cutter, making the bottle-opening process even easier. 

The opener’s charging base measures 5.51 x 5.32 inches and includes storage space for the foil cutter. The unit recharges in six to eight hours and can open about 30 bottles of wine on a full charge.

What We Like
  • Sleek design

  • One-touch functionality

  • Includes foil cutter

  • Transparent corkscrew mechanism  

What We Don't Like
  • Wobbles on charger base

  • Foil cutter can be knocked off easily

Our tester rated the Secura Electric Wine Opener as among the best available. One advantage of Secura’s opener is you’ll be able to see if the corkscrew and cork line up through the transparent shell. There’s also a bright LED light illuminating the inner chamber during opening.

Our at-home tester was impressed right away with the stylish design of this model, noting that the stainless steel build blended in nicely with the other steel appliances in their kitchen. During testing, we found that this model easily removed the cork in seconds thanks to the opener’s one-touch functionality. Our tester found that a tiny bit of pressure was needed when removing the cork but it didn't take that much effort.

It comes in four color options: stainless steel, champagne gold, blue, and rose gold. The opener also includes a foil cutter, which has a storage slot on the base. When fully charged, it can open up to 30 bottles.

What We Like
  • Easy to use

  • Modern design 

  • Built-in foil cutter

What We Don't Like
  • Only opens up to 40 bottles per charge

  • Made with polypropylene

Electric wine bottle openers are perfect for reducing the risk of cork breakage. This model from Ozeri also reduces the annoyance of cutting a bottle’s sealing foil since it comes with a built-in foil opener.

Upon first receiving this wine opener for testing, we liked its high-tech look and that the bottom of the opener has a light blue glow when charging. According to our home-tester, this opener removed a wine’s foil in two seconds, “causing it to fall off like a bottlecap,” she noted.

This model utilizes one-touch functionality for operation, and there’s a blue light and transparent window to help you line up the bottle and the corkscrew. Measuring just 3 inches in diameter, this electric opener can happily live on your counter or bar cart. 

This opener doesn’t have a charging base; instead, you can connect it directly to a charging cable. A full charge can open about 40 bottles of wine.

Best Splurge: RBT by Rabbit Electric Corkscrew B1-00715

What We Like
  • Incredibly easy to operate

  • USB charger plugs into wall

  • Looks elegant on display

What We Don't Like
  • Pricey

Rabbit is renowned for its wine bottle openers, both manual and electric. With a timeless black and gold design, the RBT Electric Corkscrew by Rabbit is effortless and definitely a worthwhile splurge.

Measuring 8.27 inches in height and made from stainless steel, the RBT fits over the neck of a bottle and will automatically begin to penetrate the cork. The opener also auto-ejects once finished. The set includes an anti-slip coaster to prevent your wine bottle from rotating during opening, as well as an integrated foil cutter that can be attached easily to the top of the model. 

Unlike many rechargeable openers, the RBT’s USB cable plugs directly into the wall for charging and opens over 30 bottles before a recharge.

The first thing our tester noticed was the sleek golden-brass finish on this electric corkscrew. The second thing she noticed was said finish picking up fingerprints.

According to our at-home tester, the automated nature of this opener made it feel more like it came from the 21st century than the others, but it did break the (natural) cork a bit as it was retrieving it from the neck of the bottle. She found the process was mostly effortless, and it was one of the quietest models.

Dimensions: 8.27 x 2.76 x 8.27 inches | Material: Stainless steel and silicone | Color: Black and gold | Weight: 1.19 pounds

What Our Testers Say

"This feels like one of the more giftable options on the list—it looks nice and works well." Christine Clark, Product Tester

Best Design: Witanhurst Electric Wine Opener Kit

What We Like
  • Hidden magnetic foil cutter included

  • Sleek, stylish design

  • Fully automatic

What We Don't Like
  • AC adapter wall plug not included

Glass bar carts with gold or brass accents are popular in home decor. A sleek opener with an Art Deco style, WITANHURST’s Electric Wine Opener is designed to fit right in.

Available in black, with gold, red, or silver accents, this opener automatically removes the cork when placed on the neck of a bottle and auto-ejects it afterward. A magnetic foil cutter connects to the top of the model and cleverly hides the power button. A compact base for wireless charging and USB charging completes the design. However, the AC adapter wall plug isn't included. After charging, it can open up to 60 bottles.

Appearance-wise, this was one of our tester’s favorites. It looks striking and elegant in person. The foil cutter atop the power button was a nice touch, but it did take the foil cutter a few tries to successfully remove the foil. It took out the cork cleanly (no breakage here!) and quickly, though, and for that reason, is one of our tester’s top picks.

Dimensions: 11.8 x 5.5 x 4 inches | Material: Stainless steel | Color: Black | Weight: 1.41 pounds

What Our Testers Say

"If you're willing to pay a bit more for a wine opener that's beautiful to display, I think this is a great option. It feels like it would hold up longer than some of the less expensive models and the thoughtful design touches make it feel kind of special to use."Christine Clark, Product Tester

Best with Vacuum Sealer: Cuisinart Vacuum Sealer Cordless Wine Opener

4.9

What We Like
  • Cordless

  • Easy and effortless to use

  • Sturdy feel

What We Don't Like
  • Battery may stop holding charge after a few years

Once a bottle is opened, it’s best to drink the wine within a few days as it starts to oxidize. But Cuisinart’s Wine Opener can help extend your wine’s freshness with its vacuum sealer.

Corks can be done away with by just a single touch, and the wine opener's rubberized grip makes it comfortable to handle. Brushed stainless accents add to its elegant design. The vacuum sealer works by pumping down on the unit’s top to create an airtight seal.

The charging base takes up a small footprint on your countertop or bar and includes a slot to store the foil cutter. It can open up to 80 bottles of wine on a single charge.

Our tester found this easy to grip and to use, both to remove corks and to create a vacuum seal. It doesn’t require as precise centering as some of the other options, which is nice when you’re in a hurry to open that bottle of wine for dinner or a party.

Dimensions: 5.50 x 4.75 x 12.25 inches | Material: Rubber | Color: Black | Weight: 3.4 pounds

What Our Testers Say

"I think this is an excellent model for the price. Every feature worked exactly as it should. If you're on the market for an electric wine bottle opener, this is a great pick." Christine Clark, Product Tester

Best Set, Rechargeable: Crenova 4-in-1 Electronic Wine Opener

What We Like
  • The set makes a great gift

  • Holds a charge

  • Powerful opener

What We Don't Like
  • Short USB charging cable

An opener isn’t all you need to enjoy a great glass of wine. For those needing a full wine kit and interested in a rechargeable wine opener, there’s this 4-in-1 set from Crenova. 

The kit is centered around the non-slip matte-finished wine opener. After using the included foil cutter, you can open your wine in six seconds by pressing the up and down buttons. This set comes with a swan-neck aerator pourer and a manual vacuum stopper. Charging via the included USB cable takes about two and a half hours, and the unit can open up to 80 bottles on a full charge.

Though it took a bit longer to charge than it said (it took more like three and a half hours for our tester), this opener was fairly straightforward to use. The snap-in foil cutter made a clean cut on the first try and the cork came out a bit more quickly than average. The aerator pourer didn’t drip and helped bring out the flavor of the wine more quickly.

Dimensions: 9.02 x 5.91 x 2.44 inches | Material: Plastic | Color: Black | Weight: 1.39 pounds

What Our Testers Say

"The Crenova 4-in-1 Electronic Wine Opener Set is pretty solid for the price. All the plastic used in the opener and the accessories make it feel a bit cheap, but it's a respectable value pick." Christine Clark, Product Tester

Best Battery-Operated: Brookstone Automatic Wine Opener

4.3

What We Like
  • One-touch operation

  • Includes foil cutter

  • Looks sleek

What We Don't Like
  • Some issues with durability over time

Brookstone is known for its clever home products, and this opener is no different. The sleek black case and steel accents make Brookstone’s Automatic Wine Opener look chic without breaking the bank.

Measuring almost 11 inches in height, this opener works with a single touch of the button on top to easily remove natural and synthetic corks. An included manual foil cutter is built into the opener’s stand. This model uses four AA batteries, which are not included, and opens up to 150 bottles before a new set is needed.

It took a few tries for our tester to get this one to work—the down button needs to be held down for a bit longer than the others and the first few tries were unsuccessful. However, if you’re prepared for that quirk, it’s simple to use and it’s nice not to have to wait for it to charge.

Dimensions: 3.82 x 2.79 x 10.83 inches | Material: Plastic (ABS) and metal | Color: Black | Weight: 0.75 pounds

What Our Testers Say

"The Brookstone Wine Opener is sleek and functional, especially if you know that you need to hold down that button longer than you think you should. I appreciate the thoughtful design elements and the value for the price."Christine Clark, Product Tester

Best Travel-Sized: Ozeri Travel Series Rechargeable Electric Wine Opener OW012A

Ozeri Travel Series Rechargeable Electric Wine Opener OW012A

What We Like
  • Great for picnics and travel

  • Charges quickly

  • Transparent shell

What We Don't Like
  • Some wobbling when opening

Though many electric wine openers are cordless and stay charged through multiple bottles, they take up a bit of space. This travel-size opener from Ozeri is perfect for both smaller kitchens and wine lovers who often open a bottle on the road.

Measuring 6 inches tall and weighing 1.12 pounds, this compact opener opens synthetic and natural corks with the push of a button. The transparent shell is great for lining up the opener and seeing when the cork has been removed. It can open up to 80 bottles before needing a recharge and comes with a USB charger, which is helpful for a quick charge in the car.

Our tester found this one the flimsiest (unsurprising, given that it’s a travel size opener) and the loudest of the openers. It did, however, seamlessly open the wine bottle and the transparent shell was helpful.

Dimensions: 16 x 6 x 6 inches | Material: Stainless steel and plastic (ABS) | Color: Silver | Weight: 1.12 pounds

What Our Testers Say

"If I were traveling and needed to bring along an electric wine opener, I would absolutely go with this Ozeri model. It works well for what it is, and actually, the cheap-feeling materials are a plus for a travel model, as it wouldn't be a huge tragedy if you lost it." Christine Clark, Product Tester

Best Set, Battery-Operated: Flauno Cordless Automatic Electric Corkscrew Bottle Opener Set

 Courtesy of Amazon

What We Like
  • Easy and quick to use

  • Comes with extras for wine lovers

  • Great as a gift

What We Don't Like
  • Mixed reviews on battery charge

Battery-operated wine openers offer the advantage of more bottle capability on one set of batteries and the ability to swap them out on the go. Flauno’s Electric Wine Opener can be operated by four AA batteries and comes with other necessary wine accessories. 

The main star of the kit is the aluminum wine opener, which features a Teflon drill and LED light in the transparent internal chamber. The opener has two buttons—up or down—for operation and can remove a cork in six seconds. There’s an included foil cutter, a small aerator pourer, and a vacuum stopper for when you’re done with the bottle.

The set comes with batteries and a rechargeable plug. A full charge can open up to 120 bottles of wine.

When they call this a kit, they’re not kidding. Though it may feel like overkill for some, this collection of tools may be perfect for those just starting their wine journey. According to our home tester, everything did what it was supposed to do, though the opener took a bit longer to remove the cork than some of the other openers in the list.

Dimensions: 1.77 x 1.77 x 9.92 inches | Material: Aluminum and ABS (plastic) | Color: Metallic Gray | Weight: 1.5 pounds

What Our Testers Say

"This kit could be great for someone who's new to their wine journey but not so new that they wouldn't know what to do with everything." — Christine Clark, Product Tester

How We Tested

All of the wine openers in this article have been carefully chosen by our editors and writers. Expert home-testers spent weeks evaluating all of the products featured here. After rating each item based on a comprehensive list of methodologies, and ranking them on key attributes, our experts provided personal feedback to update this roundup.

Some of the attributes we looked for and rated each item on included the design, quality of build, effectiveness, and overall value of the wine opener, as well as ease of use.

What to Look for in an Electric Wine Bottle Opener

Design

Some electric wine bottles are basic, while others are so fancy they deserve to be displayed prominently. Consider where you’re going to store your wine opener as well as your personal design preferences. Of course, you also want one that opens bottles efficiently, so look for one that's known for being reliable.

Features

Electric wine bottle openers come with a host of different features. While some run on batteries, others come with an electric charger to keep them powered up. Some are equipped with foil cutters, and others come with various wine paraphernalia, including vacuum pumps, stoppers, and aerating pourers. Think about what features are important to you, as well as what's feasible for your budget.

Ease of use

Some electric wine bottle openers will have your vino flowing with just the touch of a button, while others take a bit more finesse. Be sure to consider how heavy an opener is, plus how comfortable it is to use—especially if you find yourself uncorking bottles frequently.

FAQs

How do you use an electric wine opener?

For most electric wine openers, you place the opener over the top of the bottle, and while holding the base of the wine with your other hand, press the upper switch (or button) on the electric corkscrew. The corkscrew goes into the bottle, takes out the cork, and your wine is ready to drink. 

How long is wine good after opening? 

A wine is good for about three to four days after opening. If you put it in the refrigerator, it may last an extra day or two.

How do you remove a cork from an electric wine opener? 

The button you used to take the cork out of the bottle is usually in two parts—push the lower part. The corkscrew will "untwist" the cork and release it. Et Voila!
