Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

Because you can't spell decanter without CAN. Nor can't, actually. But we're gonna just focus on the positive here.

All my life, people have been telling me the things that I can't do. "Michael, you can't go outside and play because it's raining." "You can't play professional basketball because you're only 5-feet tall." "You can't just run into a parked car on the road and then drive off without leaving a note."

Well, I got sick of people telling me what I can't do. So the word "can't" is no longer part of my vocabulary. Now when someone says to me, "Michael, you can't let your wine out to breathe!" I say, "Yes I deCANter!"

When someone walks up and proclaims, "That deep punt can't increase the surface area to entice the rich flavors and aromas out of the wine!" I say, "Yes it deCANter!"

And the next time someone tells me that I can't improve my experience with a bold red wine by aerating it in a hand-blown, lead-free crystalline quartz vessel with an elegant and sleek design, I'll turn to them and whisper softly in their ear, "Yes. I. de.CAN.ter."

I might even follow that up with an adamant "You're not the boss of me!" and a big, wet raspberry. We'll see. I'll just play it by ear.

Features

Houdini Decanter with Wine Shower
 
Here’s everything you need to enjoy the real advantages of decanting wine!
Wine experts agree: pouring a bottle of red wine into a decanter before serving improves both flavor and bouquet! As you pour, the wine becomes “aerated,” which means it picks up oxygen, enhancing both its taste and aroma. In fact, whatever the price of wine, it will more closely resemble a higher-priced wine after decanting. You’ll appreciate the difference.
 
This complete set includes:
 
The Houdini 48 oz. Crystal Decanter - Individually hand-blown of lead-free crystalline quartz. The Decanter bottom is inset for ease of pouring. Its graceful shape adds a touch of elegance to any dining table.
 
The Wine-Shower Funnel - Creates a “shower” when you pour wine into the decanter. This allows the wine to absorb more oxygen (aeration) in a shorter time. Poured through the Wine Shower-Funnel, wine can be served immediately after decanting.
 
The Stainless Steel Sediment Strainer - Removes the sediment that red wines often develop while aging.

Owner:
Riki Kane
Founded:
1983
Location:
New York, NY
Metrokane was founded in 1983 by Riki Kane who had been an advertising copywriter and a syndicated journalist, creator of the popular newspaper word game, “Wordy Gurdy.” While travelling in Mexico, she purchased a manual citrus juicer, which she brought home to squeeze her morning orange juice. She was surprised to find that manual juicers had been extinct in the U.S. since the advent of electric citrus juicers in the ‘50’s. Convinced that the manual juicer is superior to the electric kind, she re-introduced it to the American market with a classic retro design called “The Mighty OJ.” Metrokane’s Mighty OJ Juicer was an immediate success in department and specialty stores around the country.

Initially, Ms. Kane ran the business from her apartment—expanding her line of juicers and fighting a long, but ultimately successful legal battle against Mighty OJ imitations (called “knock-offs” in the industry). As the company expanded, she was joined in the business by her husband, Bob Larimer, who had recently sold his advertising agency to a large company.
