So first off let me say that the reason for the rating is due to long term use of the stopper. The stopper use with a turned top is easy to do and assembly is simple too. My reason for the rating is due to the chemical reaction that occurs between the chrome and the wine acid. As you can see by the second image, the chrome is being dissolved into the wine. The way I found this out was that I had a open bottle laying on it’s side in my fridge for a few weeks and I pulled it out to finish it off the wine. When I pulled the stopper that had been submerged in the wine I noticed that there was pitting in the chrome. Being that I sell the stoppers and know that people put the bottle on their side in the fridge, I am concerned that someone could be affected by the dissolved chrome in the wine.
Unfortunately, I am pulling all of my stoppers from my stuff out of this concern. It just doesn’t make sense to sell a product that can do this and customers will notice it too.
