A: Metrokane Corkscrew Warranties:
Always Call or Email Metrokane before returning any item!
The majority of Rabbit and Houdini Corkscrews returned to Metrokane are in good working order.
We stand behind our Product Warranty, but returning a good product is a
waste of your time and postage. In most cases any problems you are
having can be solved by either:
- better understanding how to use your corkscrew: For detailed directions for use and troubleshooting tips, click this link.
- replacement of a worn or damaged spiral: If you think you may
need a new spiral, try replacing it before returning the complete
product. To obtain a new spiral see next question.
Q: How will I know when I need a new spiral for my Rabbit (or Houdini) Corkscrew?
The Metrokane spiral is made of high tensile strength steel with a
dense non-stick coating and mini-bearings in the head. It is designed to
perform 800-1,000 cork removals, but extreme wear or mis-use can
shorten its working life.
The most common abuse of the spiral
results when the cork is pulled without removing the foil cap. This
scrapes the coating on the spiral and shortens its life. Always remove
the foil cap before pulling a cork.
Wax seals on wine bottles
will also damage the spiral if not disposed of before opening the wine.
You can remove wax from the spiral by placing it in boiling water for a
few minutes. After that be sure to take off wax seals before opening the
To keep the spiral in good condition, clean it
occasionally with a damp cloth or sponge. Be sure to wipe away pieces of
cork that may cling to the spiral.
