Vino Pop Reviews
Lawrence Holmes, a Vino Pop reviewer, says that he tried removing three corks and found that it worked only on one of them. As per his observation, Vino Pop failed to build any pressure inside it. In his review, he says that he pumped it several times to see no results.
A Vino Pop review by Ricardo Barker asserts that it is made using cheap plastic material. Its durability lasted for only a few uses. According to his review, he got hurt badly because Vino Pop broke and slammed into his hand.
According to Norma Rhodes’s review, too, Vino Pop broke after 12 uses. The pressure that built up by pumping exploded the top portion and it shot out all the seals. This is pretty dangerous and after breaking, one of the seals went missing rendering it useless. Her Vino Pop review complains that it doesn’t work as advertised at all.
One other customer, Shannon Horton, reveals in her Vino Pop review that it exploded the whole bottle into her face. The bottle spread across a 20-feet diameter with tiny glass particles all over.

Thelma Carr calls Vino Pop a poorly constructed wine opener in her review. According to her Vino Pop review, she tried using it on 7 different bottles and couldn’t get it to work. She noticed that the air started to come out from the end of the needle instead while pumping.
A disappointed Ross Sims states in his Vino Pop review that it doesn’t work at all and deems it a waste of money.

Vino Pop Questions & Answers
Q. Is the needle in Vino Pop sturdy enough or does it break while using? Is inserting this needle easier when compared to the screw based removers?

Q. Does Vino Pop required CO2 cylinder for its pumping action?
A. No, it uses only air to pop open the cork.
Q. Is Vino Pop safe and easy to use with a single hand?

Q. Will the Vino Pop’s needle push the cork into the bottle?
