DNA isolation from agarose gels

What is the simplest and most efficient method for recovering restriction
fragments from agarose gels.  I am trying to recover PCR product whose ends
have been digested with restriction enzymes from HMP agarose.  The gels have
loads of product, but recovery of approximately 5% seems to be the norm.
I've tried Wizard PCR preps, Quiex II, and electroelution, all with very
dissappointing yields.  Any suggestions of simple, high-yield protocols?

Thanks in advance.
