Cork puller with flat hook prevents tearing

Corks are removed without tearing the by means of a cork puller with a flat hook at the end. The extractor is inserted at one side between the bottle and the cork, and a twist places the hook where it will fit under the bottom of the cork. Then a slow, and steady pull will remove the stopper, usually with little difficulty.
