Size #8 Cork Stoppers in Extra Select Grade are superb tapered corks. Made from 100% natural cork. Size #8 Extra Select Corks Stoppers are manufactured to exacting standards to provide a secure fit every time. All cork stoppers are visually sorted depending on their quality grade. The cork grade is determined by the lenticels (crevices) that occur naturally in the cork. Extra Select are among the highest grade available, meaning they have smaller and fewer lenticels than a XXX or XXXX grade.
I erred and order corks too small... it disappeared inside my cruet. I therefore had to reorder larger size(s). My error and I can eventually use the Size 8s.

Portable Water Structuring Unit
These #8 Extra Select corks work great for the large end of the Portable Water Structuring Unit. The #1 works great for the small end, especially when you want to keep the water in the unit to shake it and structure it more. These are top quality corks and if I need more I sure know where I will be buying them!!

I've used a few different sizes for making wine stoppers and these are the perfect fit! The quality is awesome and they look beautiful with stain too.

More for the money...
Ordered 100 "extra select" cork stoppers even though they were twice the price of the xxxx grade cork stoppers I had been buying. Trouble with the xxxx grade was that about 20% of them were too crappy to use, at least for my purposes, so I thought I'd try the next step up in quality. When they arrived, they all looked good and there seemed to be about 100 in the bag, but I decided to count them to make sure I had gotten what I'd paid for. Happy to discover that although I'd paid for 100, the bag contained 129, and all of them keepers, just as I'd expected. I don't know if getting more corks then you paid for is sop or not, but I will definitely be ordering them again.

Size 8 and Size 9, Extra Select, are dense corks that I use, and reuse, to cork fizzy beverages as well as other wet and dry culinary ingredients in narrow-necked bottles. First-rate quality and performance.

Making the Best Choice
I was a little hesitant at first but, I went from standard cork stopper to extra select and I'm so happy the corks fit my wine bottles.
Thank you customer service! Great job HELPING me decide.

Wine Bottle Stopper
Just the right size to stopper a wine bottle.
Tamara T, Daly City, CA - 9/5/2015
I use these stoppers to cork opened bottles of beer and other fizzy beverages. The Extra Select forms a tight seal that resists absorbing moisture. The stopper is also easy to remove.
Tamara T, Daly City, CA - 11/12/2014
Excellent cork; however, the top of cork is a little too large to fit ornamental wood or metal pieces from old wine stoppers. And, it is very difficult to neatly cut down the size to fit so it can be glued on. This said, I will be ordering more in the future due to the quality of the cork.

Best Corks & Great Service
I love WIDGETCO corks and appreciate their swift delivery. The size 8 cork stoppers work well on wine, sparkling water, and other bottled beverages. I buy the highest quality, but all grades of WIDGETCO corks are well made.

Product was of excellent quality and shipped very timely.
David S, Rochester, NY - 3/25/2013
Ordered 9s and 8s to see which was the best fit. For most wine bottles these 8s are perfect!

Perfect for my handmade wine stoppers
I make wee ceramic fairy houses that I affix to the top of the corks for a lovely decorative wine stopper. I tried 3 other cork styles and FINALLY these were perfect!

These work fine for some Italian glass bottles. The quality is excellent. I am happy with the promptness of shipping.
