Don’t hide it at the back of a drawer. Once a simple thing, the waiter’s friend is now a hi-tech piece of kitchen kit...

Well made, sturdy and solid, this is also stylish and ergonomically designed. No wonder Raymond Blanc was prepared to put his name behind it.
Inject a little humour into your life with this moustache corkscrew that doubles up as a bottle opener – and what better time to get one than in the advent of Movember?
You can always count on Alessi for a winning combination of design and practicality. This fun parrot-shaped sommelier corkscrew is no exception.
Paxton & Whitfield has teamed a waiter's-friend corkscrew with a great cheese knife – all presented in a classy gift box. Both are made from fully forged steel.
This automatic, cordless and rechargeable corkscrew lets you unscrew up to 20 corks on a single charge and has a comfortable rubberised grip.
The self-pulling screwpull design of this corkscrew means you just turn the handle and up comes the cork. Plastic corks are no more challenging.
Now, this is clever. An internal cutter removes the foil, then with a gentle twist of the comfy soft handle, the non-stick coil smoothly removes the cork.
This boasts an extra-wide body, which means it's suitable for all bottleneck sizes, while the extra-large turning handles allow it to open wine smoothly and easily.
Not only is this corkscrew aesthetically pleasing and reassuringly heavy, but it delivers truly effortless cork removal, thanks to innovative rotation technology.
Made from chromed metal with a tactile lever encased in solid wood, this corkscrew makes opening even the most difficult of bottles a pleasure.
