Waiter’s double-hinged corkscrew
- Remove the foil: Unfold the little knife embedded in the handle of the corkscrew. Cut all the way around the foil covering the corkscrew, placing the knife just slightly below the lip. (If your corkscrew doesn’t have a knife, you can use the sharp tip of the corkscrew.) Tear the foil away.
- Unfold the corkscrew: Unfold the corkscrew (a.k.a. “worm”) from the handle; the corkscrew should form a “T” with the handle on one side and the shorter, notched portion on the other.
- Insert the corkscrew into the cork: Set the tip of the corkscrew in the middle of the cork and gently screw downward, using the handle and the hinged portion to twist. Stop when the corkscrew feels secure.
- Fold the short, notched arm of the corkscrew down: With the “worm” of the corkscrew still firmly imbedded in the cork, fold the short, notched arm downward. You’ll see one or two notched ledges in this section — rest the one closest to the hinge on the lip of the wine bottle.
- Lift the corkscrew up: Lift up on the handle, gently easing the cork out of the corkscrew as far as you can. The notched ledge resting on the bottle will act as a fulcrum, letting you draw the cork out easily and cleanly.
- Reposition the notched portion: If your corkscrew has a second notched ledge, reposition to the second ledge once you’ve pulled the cork as out as far as you can. Lift up on the handle again to pull the cork further out.
- Remove the cork from the bottle: This should get you 90% of the way to removing the cork; just a bit of the cork will still be lodged in the bottle. Unfold the hinged arm to form a “T” again, and draw the cork the rest of the way out. You may need to twist the cork a little to wiggle it all the way out.
