The unique patented technology used in Le Creuset Table Model Corkscrew was invented by the prolific inventor Herbert Allen. Called “simply the world’s greatest corkscrew,” the original self-pulling Table Model still has no equal after more than 30 years. Enshrined in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection, today, all of our corkscrews use the same standard-setting double-helix screw technology that extracts a cork from a wine bottle effortlessly every time.
