the girl gadget: the corkcicle

Filling your home with the objects of your desire is always a fun process, but finding items that can actually fulfill a purpose is more of a scavenger hunt.  I typically find these types of helpful gadgets in the form of revolutionary bar accessories or extraordinary cooking tools, so when I stumbled across this one I just couldn’t keep it to myself.

The Corkickle, an inventive wine chiller, does the job of a bulky wine bucket but only takes up a sliver of space in your freezer.  The icicle shaped spear is made of nontoxic gel encased in BPA-free plastic.  Once it has been frozen, it is inserted into your freshly opened bottle of vino to keep it cool without diluting the blend.  According to NY Magazine’s The Cut, “it maintains the optimal temperature for whites—about 50 degrees—for 45 minutes, but can also cool reds to cellar temperature in ten minutes flat.”
