Peugeot Elis Rechargeable Electric Corkscrew - PW200169
For more than a century, the PEUGEOT name has been synonymous with French gourmet cooking, but the French are also renowned for another gastronomic experience: wine. In the recent past, an opportunity arose for PEUGEOT to lend its name to a family of wine products and, in turn, bring its penchant for quality and innovation to this side of the gourmet experience.
In 2006, PEUGEOT acquired a well-known French producer and distributor of some of the finest wine accessories available anywhere. Among the products offered: a wide range of corkscrews; specialized wine decanters; service accessories; and tasting glasses, highlighted by the legendary “Les Impitoyables” line of glasses.
Since then, PEUGEOT has been utilizing its design talents to develop new products for this market. Among the first introduced: the Elis rechargeable electric corkscrew, inspired by a combination of the Elis pepper and salt mills and the double spindle corkscrews made popular in the early 19th century.
From the same style family as the Elis pepper and salt mills, this rechargeable electric corkscrew represents the height of Peugeot quality and innovation. Developed in-house and produced exclusively by Peugeot, it is less bulky than other electric corkscrews and fits all bottle necks. It can uncork a bottle effortlessly in a few seconds and works well with corks of all types, even the harder synthetic ones. Unlike most other electric corkscrews, the screw (worm) can be replaced (replacement worm sold separately). Its rechargeable battery packs allow owners to save on replacement batteries while helping to save the environment at the same time. Comes gift boxed, with an inner presentation / storage box, the Elis corkscrew is made of stainless steel and polycarbonate and comes complete with the charging unit.
