Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener

Untitled drawing

Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener in Stainless Steel with Auto Activation  is awesome. I never seem to have a wine bottle opener around. I also hate struggling with a regular wine opener trying to get my wine open. That is where the Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener  is so helpful!

First, you ue the included foil cutter to remove the wine bottle seal.  Then gently push down on the wind bottle to activate the auto cork removal.  Last, release the pressure and the cork is automatically ejected from the opener.  Yes, it is that easy.

The Extravo’s built-in rechargeable battery opens up to 60 wine bottles on a single charge.  The Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener is completely cordless and includes compact foil cutter that doubles as a stand. It also ships with a bonus wine pourer and stopper. The Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener with Auto Activation opens both natural and synthetic corks.

This is a must get for all wine drinkers!

Mongolian Beef Stir Fry And Marinade Sauce


San-J’s newest luscious flavor allows home gourmets to make restaurant-quality Asian meals at home. This all natural, gluten-free and non-GMO sauce is the fastest, easiest and tastiest way to make authentic Mongolian Beef in your own kitchen. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and savory with accents of ginger and garlic.


The marinade is used mostly for beef, but the back of the bottle label says to get creative and try it on chicken, shrimp or tofu. Chicken is what I had on hand so Mongolian Chicken it is… I marinated the chicken in the sauce in the fridge for about 2 hours. I set the oven at 350F popped the chicken in for 30 minutes. Steamed some vegetables in the meantime. The outcome of the chicken…. Way better than I expected! Super juicy and full of flavor. It received an A+ from the family. Being such a busy family, like most families, I love that this is such a quick dinner. Next time, I plan to marinate it over night for more convenience. I definitely look forward to also making the suggested beef stir-fry listed on the bottle in the near future.
