Opening Bottles on Yom Tov

If one holds that you are not allowed to open soda bottles on Shabbos, does that mean you are not allowed to open them on Yom tov as well or is it allowed on Yom tov in a case where was not able to do so before Yom tov ?

Answer:

According to opinions who are stringent concerning opening soda bottles on Shabbos, the stringency would apply to Yom Tov, too. Although it is permitted to perform melachos on Yom Tov for the purpose of ochel nefesh, this rule applies only to those melachos that directly apply to the food preparation process–and only to melachos from the kneading stage and on (reaping, for instance, is prohibited)–and not to all 39 melachos.
