As you know, a bottle cap cutter allows you to elegantly remove the protection of bottle caps. Before we tell you more about bottle cap cutters, let's first talk about the origin of bottle caps.
Caps are the most misunderstood part of bottles when it comes to their origin, history and purpose. To give you a little background, we'll tell you more about them. We'll answer some of the most common questions: have you stopped to think about how long they last, what they do, and what materials they are made of?
Bottle caps are the part of the bottle located in the neck of the bottle responsible for protecting the cork from possible damage.
Where do the cap cutters come from?
The first records date back to the Middle Ages, when some nobles took the decision to control the wines in their cellars. It was once common for some bottles to be replaced by others of lesser value, or in some cases, to be diminished due to evaporation.
The origin of the current capsule concept, however, was in Hungary in the 18th century, when a nobleman decided to create the first lead capsule in order to protect the cork from insects, moisture and also to ensure that the bottle had not been tampered with.
Today, in addition to fulfilling a hygienic and protective function, it is used to identify the producers. This information (name, logo) can be found on the top of the cap.
As far as materials are concerned, and as we have already mentioned, one of the first materials used to make bottle caps was lead. However, it has been replaced by tin, aluminum and plastic, as it is a toxic material.
To learn more about the different materials found in the manufacture of capsules, we give you the example of wine bottle caps.
Pewter capsules are the most expensive and therefore the best. It is elegant, fits well and offers a wide range of design possibilities. It is often used for high quality wines.
Aluminum is recyclable and corrosion resistant. It is used for high and medium range wines. Finally, plastic. This is the cheapest and simplest option. It offers few design possibilities, but it is a very effective option.
What to consider when buying a bottle opener?
If you are in the restaurant business and still don't have a bottle cutter, now is the time to get one. It is a very useful tool.
There are many different types of bottle cutters. Some choose to have a better design but are not as good in terms of functionality. Others seem to be designed to be used only once. At Jicaclick, we want you to have the best ones and that's why we tell you what features to consider before you buy one.
Chances are, when you're considering buying a capsule cutter, you haven't spent much time researching. But do you want to end up with a poor quality product, or would you rather end up with a clever device and have made a good investment?
Since research is helpful, we'll leave you with some of the features to consider in making a good decision:
- The quality and material of the cutting blade. Think of it this way: the better and higher quality the materials used, the longer they will last. The most common materials are usually plastic and tin. They protect the neck of the bottle and prevent the cork from deteriorating.
- The number of cutting blades. Three- or four-blade bottle openers are generally common.
- The size of the opening.
- The quality of the material used to make the opening.
- How deep into the neck the cut is made.
- The pressure you need to apply to create a clean cut.
