Serving wine to discerning guests? You're a braver person than me. Having to gauge whether a bottle's chilled enough for consumption is as much an art as the wine-making itself. That's why you'll appreciate the Wine Thermometer, a bottle-hugging device that gives you an accurate reading of the wine's current temperature.
Taking the guesswork out of the process, it allows you to serve your Pinot and Shiraz knowing full well that they're chilled just right. If some know-it-all guest happens to challenge your authority, you won't even need to pull out anecdotes from wine experts - just point them to the easy-to-read digital display showing the exact temperature and shut them up forever.
Designed to hug the bottle like a belt, the Wine Thermometer fastens securely to the surface and stays there till you decide to pull them out. Sporting heat-sensitive bands, it immediately picks up the temperature and provides a readout (between 5°C to 30°C) in a matter of minutes, so you'll have a good idea of how long you'll need to wait before popping the bottle open. As soon as you take it off, the device powers down on its own, allowing you to extend its 2,000-hour battery life for an even longer time.
Ready to sip your wine at just the right amount of cold and warmth it was meant to be savored with? Selling for only $14.99 at Solutions, it's silly for regular wine-drinkers not to keep one.
