The Metrokane Houdini Wine Preserver is a pump-and-stopper vacuum system with three major improvements over competing systems. The Metrokane Houdini Wine Preserver is ergonomically designed to afford easier pumping action and to avoid pinching that can occur with other pumps. Two Metrokane Push-Button Stoppers are included, employing a patented valve that will hold a vacuum for days. Bottles sealed with the Metrokane Houdini Wine Preserver and the Metrokane Push-Button Stoppers can be stored horizontally. Wine bottles sealed with competing stoppers must be stored upright to prevent leaking.
