Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AussieLady MAKES YOUR BOX WINE CLASSY!
What a brilliant idea! Normally I have kept my box of wine in a cupboard, hidden out of sight. The Boxxle changes all that, and here's why:
1. The Boxxle is a very attractive "cover" that looks great on my kitchen counter
2. The wine dispenses from a tap at the top of the Boxxle so no need to hold the wine glass
3. The Boxxle dispenses the wine to the very last drop
4. Super easy to change out the empty used wine bag and replace it with a new full one.
The Boxxle is very easy to load. Just open the 3 litre (can't use 5 litre) cardboard box container your wine comes in and remove the plastic bag holding the wine. Open the top of the Boxxle which has a spring loaded mechanism in the bottom and push the platform all the way down to the bottom of the Boxxle until it clicks loudly. Drop the bag of wine into the Boxxle and line up the spigot/tap on the bag with the opening on the front of the Boxxle. Make sure the spigot is facing "down"! Close the lid of the Boxxle and pour yourself some wine!
The only snag I hit with my first "load" was that when I closed the lid of the Boxxle, some wine was forced out just below the spigot. I noticed in the instructions that it said some brands of box wine require you to empty (or drink!) a little of the wine out of the bag before insertion. I released about a 1/4 cup and the leaking stopped immediately.
While the Boxxle is by no means inexpensive, it looks wonderful on my counter, my guests find it most convenient, and nobody knows it's box wine! This product would also make a fabulous gift.

This dispenser is top quality - perfect form and function. You truly get what you pay for in this case. It is attractive enough to leave out all the time if you've got the counter space, and it matches very well with stainless steel appliances you might already have in the kitchen.
Loading is fairly straightforward, and dispensing is a breeze. We don't go through a ton of wine in my household, so it's a nice cost saving to be able to preserve open boxed wine for much longer periods of time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JReed The gift that keeps on giving
This makes a great gift for the box wine drinker. I picked this up as a gift for my father, and he loves it! He is a regular wine drinker. This is very simple to use, all you do is open the top, push the plunger down until you hear a click, put in your bag of wine, attach it to the tap and close the top.
One thing that I really appreciate more so than most other feathers is that it looks and feels high end. It is built well, and will look great on any counter top. My biggest pet peeve is when people leave their wine boxes on the counter top. This alleviates that issue.
My biggest gripe is that it will not cool your wine.

This is an amazing concept!! Beautiful design, functional. Makes serving and drinking the boxed wines elegant while saving lots of money and helping the environment. I love it. Bought one for my parents. Feel like it has already paid for itself in wine savings. Gerald Aykins.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dundee This looks much better than the box of wine on the counter
The wine dispenser looks much better for guests to dispense their wine than just having the box on the counter. I put it in the frig to keep the wine chilled before setting it out for the guests. The way that it works you have to push down on the lift inside the dispenser to engage it. Then you put the 3 liter bag of wine into the chamber on top of the lift. The dispenser nozzle on the bag fits into a slot. Once that is in place, close the top of the dispenser and the lift will rise up to put the needed pressure on the bag to allow the wine to be dispensed. It looks very impressive! It doesn't have anything to let you know that it is getting empty, so when you have to start tipping it to make the wine flow faster, that is your clue that it is running low.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sarkazein70 Pricey for what it is
There are pretty much no complaints about this wine dispenser, beyond price. It's one of those designs that is clever in that there in no power required (electrical or battery), but the entire thing is probably being sold at a 300-400% profit.
So what does it do? You take your boxed wine out of the cardboard box, and then you place the bag in this thing. It takes a little elbow grease (not a lot by any means) to push the interior all the way down. Once you've loaded your bag of wine, you close the container and a nice, springy bottom (the part you pushed down) pushes up with gentle force until it can't anymore.
Again, it's a very elegant design, and it does exactly what you want it to do, assuming what you want it to do is dispense the bag of wine from a far nicer looking decanter than the box the wine came in. Even though it dispenses from the top, you'll still get every last drop out of your bag thanks to the spring, and in our testing, every boxed bag of wine fit just fine. (Most have similar nozzles, which you also get from the bag.)
My only complaint is that I've seen how things like this (not this product in particular) are manufactured, and I know that the $99 price point is awfully high. If you don't mind that and can look past it, this is a much prettier version of a box wine dispenser. It doesn't accomplish anything the box doesn't already do though, beyond aesthetics.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeRemodeler533 Finally adds class to the eco friendly option
Product came fully assembled with excellent instructions on how to use it, which is always appreciated. The stainless steel is very high end, I put in on my kitchen counter and it fits right in with my other stainless steel appliances. The product works great, the spring mechanism really pushes out the wine - down to the last drop. With so many quality box wines such as Black Box hitting the market, the Boxxle is well used in my kitchen!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JayE Convenient and friendly to the eco!
We love to drink wine but almost always have some left in the bottle. Boxxle is great because we never have to worry about leftover wine going bad. This is easily the best investment i've had that is saving us money every week. We had some friends over the other night and they were shocked to see that we were drinking high end wine out of a countertop appliance. They loved it!
