What experts liked

This dispenser comes with an elegant design which you will like most. There is no hassle in the operating. Anyone can operate the aerator with one touch. The button is on the top for making it easy to use.

If you want to get rid of most of the tannins in your wine, then the Waerator in this case would be better.
- Texas Wine Lover
The Waerator is a pump that sucks wine up through a tube you submerge directly into the bottle. A spout dispenses the wine into the glass when you press a button on top of the device. That cleanup is significant compared to other pour-through aerators, but some users may prefer the solution here.

The spout allows you to pour your wine without spilling. This will also come in handy when you clean the aerator. All you have to do is fill up an empty bottle with hot water, shake it thoroughly and then press the button until all the water has been dispensed. If you want aerated wine quickly, then this is definitely the way to go.
- Your Wine Master
The aerator acts like a stopper, so the wine is still in good condition the following day.
- Napa Food and Vine
Because of the dual infusion system, the pump draws wine without sediment and it pours it with precision. Easy to clean: another great feature is the cleaning ease. It is enough to run clean water through the system to remove any residues.

What experts didn't like

The first thing that struck me when I was ready to do the review was the point in the instructions that said after washing the aerator, I should wait 24 hours so it can properly dry. What? That’s the last thing I want to do with an aerator is wait—that’s why I have an aerator.
- Texas Wine Lover
It is slow and noisy and not a terribly elegant way to enjoy your vino.
- Drinkhacker

The aerator feels like it was created cheaply. The second issue is how noisy it is when the wine is dispensed through the spout.
- Your Wine Master
The manual only mentions cleaning the device before first use but it seems to me that it should be cleaned after every use. There was some red wine left in the bottom of the tube, which I would not want contaminating the next bottle I breathe with the gadget.
- Napa Food and Vine
The dispenser starts splatter wine when the bottle is near empty. Pay attention to this if you want to avoid staining your clothes or furniture.

An Overview On Wine Aerators

Home sommeliers, pinot noir fans and rosé-all-day champions have dozens of new ways to enjoy their favorite drinks at home. You can buy chilled blush wine in six-packs of aluminum cans, sip from self-cooling wine cups and save the other half of your bottle with preservation sprays and special stoppers. But one of the easiest ways to make every sip more memorable is by using a wine aerator.

Wine aerators are small devices that you can pop right into the mouth of your wine bottle. They swirl your wine around as you pour, helping it mingle with more air to enhance the taste. It might seem counterintuitive, but exposing your wine to more air actually makes it taste better. 

Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

The oxidation that occurs when air hits your wine emphasizes compounds that create delicious notes like blackberry or apple, while less tasty flavors from ethanol and sulfites evaporate. The result is a full-bodied wine tasting experience that wakes up your tastebuds. Red wines are the only wines that need to be aerated.

You can also help your wine breathe by buying wine glasses with larger openings or by using a specially designed vessel called a decanter. However, using a wine aerator is much faster. Since it mixes your wine with air as you pour, you don’t have to wait for it to sit in your glass or decanter. You can pour red wine in any glass with an aerator and enjoy a full-bodied taste in seconds. 

Kristin Forte/Simplemost Media

Red wine aerators are available in two general designs. Some aerators fit into the mouth of your wine bottle, so your vino runs through the aerator as you tilt the bottle and pour your glass. These aerators are convenient because you can pour your wine and aerate it with one hand.

Other aerators must be held separately above your glass, so you’ll hold the bottle in one hand and the aerator in the other as you pour. Both styles are equally effective at getting air into your wine. 

The Wine Aerator Buying Guide

  • Red wines are the only wines that need to be aerated. Denser red wines, like Malbecs or Cabernet Sauvignons, are especially great for aeration. Adding air to these vinos removes extra sediment, acidity, ethanol notes and tannins that make your wine harder to drink and enjoy.
  • Fine red wines that have been aged are an exception to that rule. Exposing them to too much air for too long can flatten their delicate notes, leaving you with ho-hum vino. Allowing them to sit in a decanter to remove sediment can be helpful, though.
  • White wines and very light reds are airy enough to enjoy directly from the bottle — they don’t require additional aeration.
  • Aerators will improve the taste of any red wine, so they’re great to use with inexpensive bottles. This will save you cash in the long run — you might even find a new favorite bottle that won’t break the bank.
  • The materials used to construct your aerator will determine how well it adds air to your wine and how long it lasts. The sturdiest aerators are made from acrylic. Stopper-style aerators will require a snug rubber seal to prevent leaks. 
  • Some aerators are dishwasher safe, but we recommend hand washing them to avoid cracks. Use gentle dish soap after each use, then set the aerator out to air dry. 
  • Each aerator is designed a little differently. Some use added features, like drizzle plates or extra holes, for more efficient aeration. Others have built-in filters to catch extra sediment or bits of cork. Take a close look at each aerator’s features to see which one will make your wine taste the best.
