Vacuum Wine SaverThe problem with wine is that if all you have are standard 750 mL bottles, you either have to be prepared to down a good four glasses or put a cork in it and let it sit for the night… or two, or three… or whenever you remember you have an opened bottle and feel like drinking again.

Wine loses its flavor quickly in such cases, and usually just 24 hours is too long to expect an opened bottle to maintain peak flavor (hint: store it in the fridge, even if it’s a red, to preserve it a little longer).

But a vacuum wine saver, like this nice 3-piece stainless steel set ($29.99 at Amazon), can help an opened bottle stay tasty a bit longer by sucking all the air out of the bottle when you cork it, since exposure to air is responsible for disintegrating the wine’s taste. We’re also big fans of these handy and handsome ones that cost $25.00 at Brookstone (pictured right).

The best part? You don’t even need to spend that much money: decent wine stoppers (albeit less stylish or sturdy) can be had for as little as $9.99, like this white one here, or this black one here.
