With the press of a button, the Epicureanist Electric Corkscrew will extract the cork from the bottle and automatically release it. The Electric Wine Preserver is
made to fit most 750ml wine bottles and will vacuum seal bottles for more effective wine storage. This rechargeable cordless wine opener and preserver set
includes a foil cutter, two wine bottle stoppers, and a charging base that ensures both tools are charged and ready to use when you need them.
Please read these instructions thoroughly before using this product.
This corkscrew and preserver set is intended for household use only.
The Electric Corkscrew is intended to extract corks from standard wine bottles.
Do not operate the corkscrew and preserver set with a damaged AC/DC adapter or charging base. If the AC/DC adapter is damaged, it must be
replaced by the manufacturer or a qualified electrician.
Do not place the appliance near an open flame, cooking or heating appliance, or hot surface.
This appliance is not intended for use in wet or damp conditions.
Ensure that the power cord is positioned so that it will not get damaged or cause a tripping hazard.

Do not immerse the product in water or any other liquid.
For indoor use only. Do not expose the corkscrew, preserver, or charging base to rain or other extreme conditions.
Never force the corkscrew or preserver onto a bottle or attempt to speed up the mechanism. The corkscrew will work best when it operates at its

Charging the Wine Opener and Wine Preserver Set
It is recommended that the Wine Opener and Wine Preserver Set be
charged for at least 12 hours before using it for the first time. Please
follow the instructions for charging the unit below:
Connect the DC Power Plug into the DC Power Socket at the back of
the charging base.
Place the wine opener and wine preserver units onto the charging
base. Ensure that the arrows on each of the preserver and corkscrew,
and base are properly aligned with each other so that the electrical
connections are made correctly.
Connect AC/DC adapter into a wall outlet and turn on the power.
The blue Charging Indicator Light will turn on, indicating that the
battery is charging. It will take 10-12 hours to fully charge the battery
between uses.
When the units are fully charged, turn off the power and disconnect
the AC/DC adapter from the wall outlet. Disconnect the adapter from
the charging base also.
Note: The corkscrew can be used to open up approximately 30 bottles
when fully charged.
Opening a Wine Bottle with the Wine Opener
Before extracting the cork, use the included foil cutter to remove the
foil seal from the bottle.
Place the corkscrew on top of the wine bottle, making sure that it
remains upright at all times. Holding the corkscrew at an angle will
prevent the corkscrew from removing the cork properly.
Hold the corkscrew and bottle firmly.
Press and hold the “Spiral Down” button (▼). The corkscrew spiral will
rotate in a clockwise direction and puncture the cork. When the
corkscrew mechanism stops, the cork will be visible through the
transparent window and the blue indicator will shut off.
To remove the cork, simply press and hold the “Corkscrew Release”
button (▲) and the spiral will turn in a counterclockwise direction and
release the cork from the bottle.
Return the corkscrew to the charging base when finished. This will protect
the unit from damage.
This corkscrew is designed for use with traditional corks, but it also works
with synthetic corks. Synthetic corks are smaller and do not expand like
traditional cork, so sometimes they may stick on the corkscrew spiral. If
this happens, hold the cork firmly with a set of pliers. Press the
“Corkscrew Release” button (▲) as normal and allow the cork to be
slowly released.
Vacuum Sealing a Wine Bottle with the Wine Preserver
Note: The preserver will keep leftover wine fresh for approximately 3-5
Operating Process
Place the wine bottle on a flat surface
Insert one of the included wine stoppers into the wine bottle.
Hold the wine bottle neck securely in one hand and place the non-slip
mouth of the Wine Preserver on the wine stopper.
Keep the Wine Preserver in an upright position and in line with the wine
Push down on the wine stopper and press the “power” button at the
same time.
The Wine Preserver will make a “clacking” noise as it removes the air
from the bottle. The clacking noise will decrease and stop after 20
Do not release the power button until the unit stops.
Remove the Wine Preserver from the wine bottle and place it on the
charging base until next use.
Epicureanist LLC 16782 Von Karman Ave., Suite 15, Irvine, CA 92606
Note: The non-slip mouth may attach itself to the wine stopper. If this
occurs, hold the wine stopper and the neck of the bottle securely in one
hand and tilt the Wine Preserver away from the wine stopper to release
the suction. This should prevent air from re-entering the bottle. If in doubt,
repeat the above process.
Suggestion: One vacuum session should be sufficient if the bottle is more
than half full. If the bottle is less than half full, you may need to repeat the
vacuum seal process a second time.
Date Indicators
Use the “▼” symbol on the wine stoppers to indicate the date when
the bottle was sealed with your Wine Preserver.
Gently swivel the silver ring left or right until the correct date is in line
with the “▼” symbol.
Releasing the wine stopper
Firmly hold the bottle in one hand and gently pull the wine stopper out
of the bottle with the other hand.
Store the wine stoppers on the charging base until next use.

Before you dispose of your Wine Opener and Wine Preserver, you should
