Quit worrying about wasting your grape juice, save your leftover wine with the Metrokane V1 vacuum decanter. The device enables you to pump out the air so the vino stays fresh for longer periods. Nice idea and good design. The 52-ounce decanter is made of hand-blown crystal and costs $74.

Implications - Price-conscious consumers are increasingly discovering the financial benefits to enjoying wine and other alcoholic beverages at home instead of at a restaurant or bar. In doing so, they avoid the corkage fees and markups that are standard in the industry, which in turn enables them to savor more expensive bottles. Vacuum stoppers and other devices that preserve wine's flavor prevent these pricey beverages from going stale.
