Takeaway: Instant aeration, clean, precise pours; avoids spills, splashes, drips, and pouring off sediments.

You'll receive the dispenser pump unit, two 11" rubber hoses, and an instruction manual. The aerator pump dispenser is made from a lightweight plastic with a brushed nickel finish. It has a narrow metal spout that extends 3" and the unit itself is 5.5" tall. The top half is wrapped in a soft touch silicone rubber, and to open the battery bay, twist the top counter-clockwise and slide it up. Inside, you'll need to install 4 AAA batteries which are not included. A fresh set of batteries can purportedly dispense over 200 full bottles of wine (it will take me some time to find out if this is true!). The rubber hoses attach to the nipple on the bottom of the built-in stopper. The instructions indicate one hose should be rigid while the other flexible, but I received 2 flexible hoses, which suits me fine anyhow. When seating the pump in a bottle, be careful not to press down on the top because the wine will start dispensing! That said, dispensing the wine is as easy as a push of a button. When you have enough wine in your glass (e.g. when it's full!) release the button to stop dispensing. To rinse out the hose and pump, fill a clean empty bottle with plain water and pump the water through the unit to clean it after each use.

The dispenser also adds a lot of tiny air bubbles to the liquid while it dispenses which makes the wine a bit frothy. This is how the pump aerates the wine to open up its bouquet and flavors for a deeper, fuller taste, and takes the place of transferring the wine to a decanter the breathe for 30 minutes before drinking. Instant gratification at the touch of a button. The dispenser also doesn't pump the last half inch or so of liquid out from a standard 750 ml bottle which helps you avoid adding sediments to your glass. Most folks prefer their wine aerated if they'll be consuming it straight away after opening the bottle, and I agree that aeration does tends to make the flavors more robust, softens the edges a bit, and smooths out the mouthfeel when compared to the same wine that hasn't been aerated. I use this dispenser when having parties because it reduces the chances of drips, spills, and splashes when serving wine and lets your guest easily pour as much or as little wine as they need into their glasses. I also use it sometimes when serving wine for dinner, but because it's so tall, I swap to a regular stopper if I have to store an open bottle.
