For a long time now, the most common method of getting into a crown cap bottle has been to crank the lid off with a traditional bottle opener. While these metal contraptions do the job, I’ve never been able to get the hang of them; I would end up struggling with the bottle for far too long, spilling half of my drink out onto the table in the process.
Fortunately there is a solution for this issue, the Sentol Bottle Opener. It’s a cylindrical device which has been specifically designed to ease the bottle opening process. To use the Sentol, all you have to do is press it down over a bottles’ neck, and lift it off; if done correctly, the bottle cap will be stuck to a magnet at the edge of the gadget. That’s all there is to it. I’ve been a proud owner of one for three years, and, although it has picked up a few scratches, it still produces the same excellent results whenever I use it.
If you’re interested in buying a Sentol, then you will have to take your search to the internet. Ebay is the best place to find them these days, where they are being sold for around £11. This isn’t a fixed rate though; there may be some better deals out there if you look around carefully. To cap it off, you can even find some sellers offering different designs if you browse enough.
