This may or may not surprise you but I am absolutely fascinated by gadgets (especially how people come up with all the weird and wonderful ideas). Find me a phone, a computer, a lamp, an unusual pen, a bottle opener, etc, and leave me to play with it for a few hours.
By now you are probably staring at your screen thinking "she has finally flipped her lid, lost the plot, etc. How can anybody be fascinated by a bottle opener???".
Yes, yes, bottle openers open bottles. But this one lets you use the same lid to close the bottle as well.
I got it from Red5 in the Highcross Shopping Centre in Leicester (with some other items which I may or may not review at a later date).
This bottle opener is not one of those things which turns the lid to your lager bottle into a piece of metalic origami (the top stays the same shape as it was when it was on the bottle).
The bottle opener is approximately the same size as one of those metal salt cellars you find in cruet sets (salt, pepper, and sometimes vinegar) - with a difference. If you turn it upside down it almost ressembles a metallic shot glass - the inside of which is black.
You place the bottle opener over the neck of the bottle and press firmly on the top until you hear a click or a pop. Then remove the bottle opener, turn upside down and remove the lid of the bottle. When you have drunk as much as you want to from your bottle simply replace the lid until you next want to drink from it. Then repeat process.
I know I don't usually review gadgets but I was so impressed by this one I had to tell you about it.
