"I received this as a gift and to be perfectly honest, I had my doubts that it would be able to properly aerate wine that fast. I tested it extensively over a 3 month period and to my surprise it really does work. It absolutely and without question aerates the wine, it just doesn't aerate it enough. In particular I found that the richer, more full bodied wines definitely needed more time to breath.
Dont get me wrong, this device works and I still use it with many of the wines I drink, It simply cuts down on the time needed to aerate instead of eliminating it altogether. Usually I find another 30 minutes of breathing will do the trick. I actually tried running the wine through multiple times to see what the difference was and in all honesty there was almost no difference using it a 2nd or 3rd time. Basically if you prefer a properly aerated glass of wine, I recommend you still give your glass some time to breath.
Bottom line - While it will definitely speeds up the aeration process, it doesn't eliminate it altogether. Still, its a great product and one that I highly recommend."
