Bottle Popper Review
We've been sitting on our Bottle Popper review for a little bit, but you shouldn't read into that. In fact, we've been itching to write it up but haven't had a chance. Why, you ask? Because the Bottle Popper has done something we didn't think possible - it's added even more fun to opening up a beer (which is great enough on its own). We're not going to say it opens your beer any faster or any more effectively than any other opener, but it brings back that "wow" factor you got when you first started cracking beers.
How does it do that? Here's the thing - you set it on top of the bottle, push down quickly, and suddenly the cap is hanging from the bottom of the Bottle Popper. If we were from a primitive culture, we'd say it was magic, but being the civilized creatures we are, we're pretty sure it's magnets.
It's funny - when we first broke it out the general reaction was "what the Hell do you need another bottle opener for?" People were intrigued when we showed them how it worked, but they didn't get fired up until we let them try for themselves. We heard "oohs," "aahs," and an honest to goodness "Oh my God!" And there you have it - is that kind of magic worth the few extra dollars for a new bottle opener? We think it might be.

You can actually buy similar items on Amazon. I've had the Be Open bottle opener for a couple of years now (the opening method looks to be identical to the Bottle Popper), and I love it. The difference is that the exterior is brushed steel rather than the gaudy Bottle Popper logo. So, you know, you have a choice. Get the Be Open if you want to look like a functioning adult, get the Bottle Popper if you want to look like you're still in a fraternity.
