Wine bottle vacuum sealer — will it work?
The Wine Bottle Vacuum Seal will supposedly help you enjoy your many bottles of fine wine, which I know you have, a little more. How exactly? Well, by vacuum sealing the bottle to prevent flavor loss. I thought it was rather obvious. Of course, you won’t be finding out if this thing actually works until you buy it. Then you’re stuck with it.
Fortunately for you, that isn’t the case this time, as I did it for you by buying this $35 gadget for my Dad (it is Father’s Day after all). He hasn’t had a chance to use it quite yet, but I’ll tell you a little more about it.
When you place the pump on your bottle it will automatically seal and tell you when it’s complete. There’s also a thermometer for the wine and some recommendations for what temperature is best for your fine bottle of wine. While it doesn’t look terribly big in the picture, it is. Not obnoxiously big, but bigger than your average wine sealer (or cork.) I’ll post some pictures of it actually on a bottle later. One last point, you’ll need 2AA batteries which aren’t included.
So, what do you think? Will this gadget actually work as advertised or will it be a complete waste of $35, which isn’t important to me, as it’s the thought that counts! I’m hoping that it works though, just so I know my thoughtfulness was well worth it, but I wouldn’t be too surprised if it was a little finicky.
I’ll update this post or create a new one with the results. Try to contain your excitement.
