Can’t enjoy a glass of Dom Perignon because you can’t get the cork off the bottle? With the Metrokane Velvet Champagne Pliers, you’ll be toasting in no time. New York-based Pollen Design was surprised to find out that one out of every 10 bottles of fine champagne has a “stuck” cork that wouldn’t budge using the regular method. Designers solved the problem by creating die-cast zinc, rubberized, gun metal-finish champagne pliers, which retail for $19.95.
