Is this just too gimmicky to work? Has anyone used one of these?

    If you do a search on this board - wine preservation or such - you will find discussions in which there is little agreement that vacuuming a wine has any value.

      No, I have not seen this one before. While I am a proponent of vacuum-pumping my wines for storage in the 'fridge, I'd think that one would be removing a lot of air from this decanter. I am not doubting its utility, only thinking that my arm would become too tired to lift that last glass.

      If you try it, please report.
