Vacu VinÂ® Wine Saver Pump
So I have to be honest about why we purchased this product. I was hosting a Science Night at my sons' school and wanted to demonstrate the effects of air pressure. We half filled a glass vinegar bottle with mini-marshmallows and pumped the air out of the bottle with the Vacu Vin causing the marshmallows to expand. It worked perfectly each time, even in the hands of kindergartners! (That's how easy it is to use.) So, to be honest, I haven't used it to preserve a bottle of wine--yet--but if it works half as well on wine as it does on marshmallows I will be very pleased. (For other Science Geeks, the Container Store also sells a Fizz-Keeper Pump that pushes air into a vessel, which will crush little marshmallows in a bottle. I hear it is also great for keeping the fizz in open bottles of soda!)

I have several wine toppers but when putting in the frig on a bottle they are to high to use. This item is perfect. I use my fancy wine stoppers for parties and unfriged wine and this for long storage or for the frig!

We used these at a bar I worked at. Bought this for the home. Simple to use, easy to clean. Can save red wine for about a week if necessary. Does the job better than more expensive versions out there.

I actually purchased just the extra "corks"...
...but they fit a vacu vine suction-er that I already owned - and they work great! Cannot have enough of these.
