 Corkscrew: The Gadget Britons Treasure the Most

A new survey has revealed that a corkscrew has been named as the gadget Britons treasure the most.

Instead of modern high-tech items such as mobile phones, more traditional items made up the list of the 50 greatest inventions compiled by VoucherCodesNetwork.co.uk, the Daily Express reported.

The optical lens- which is used in cameras, microscopes and binoculars- came at the second place, with the zip landing at the third spot.

In fourth place was the cigarette lighter, followed by the electric light bulb, the vacuum flask and the telephone.

The list, which included essentials like the cooker and the fridge freezer, also featured time-saving items such as microwaves, hairdryers and remote controls with internet just making the list at number 45.

While power showers, air conditioning and credit cards made to the top 30, the mobile phone, laptop and DVD player scraped into the top 40.

The 50th position of the list compiled by the survey of more than 500 people was taken by the tablet computer.
