Customer Rating: Summary: For this price? Better than the competition. Comment: For $25 vs the $99 Brookstone spa model on here that got a decent review, I decided to save $74. What turned me off on the $99 model by Brookstone CANNOT use bath salts or bath bomb bits or whatever - this model can. Its relatively simple in its design, and if you enjoy adding additives to your water to make your foot spa more enjoyable like myself, you might want to consider this.
So far, I think this did its job. One, it does keep the hot water warm for a pretty long time, about 25 minutes or so. Its vibrate feature is gentle so its not a "deep massage" but I found that my feet DID feel better afterwards, it could be a little bit better, I would give that a B+.
I have flat feet so this model was deep enough to cover my feet completely so I was pleased with that.
The yellow button is a little wonky for working with your toes unless you are more dexterous than me, but I used my heel to turn it on and off with ease.
The bubbles are pleasant and don't cause splashing, I tried this on a hardwood floor and now feel safe about using this on carpet.
As for the bubbles feature being noisy, it isn't anywhere near as noisy as a vacuum, its a definite hum but I have heard fans on laptops noisier than this. It isn't so loud you cannot enjoy music over it! So that didn't bother me at all either.
I am giving it four stars minus one star because I had to return the model I got due to the right foot not bubbling. Beyond that, I am happy with my purchase enough to return it and try again with the same model, which I think counts for something. Customer Rating: Summary: Worked for me, as well. Comment: WARNING: NOT for persons with diabetes or if you have an open cut on the foot. (From the tag on the AC power cord.) Do NOT stand up in it -- it will break from your weight! (From the manual.) Recommended session length: 10 min. Max time turned on for one session: 20 min (from the manual). That said, it works for me. I used the elbow test to select desired tap water temperature, poured it into the foot spa, and turned on the vibrator/heater. Ten min. later -- enough for me -- temperature seemed the same to my elbow. The spa is very noisy when the "bubble machine" function is turned on; sounds like a 1950s vacuum cleaner. I'll do without that feature. It holds five pints of water to the --MAX-- fill line; its design makes it v-e-r-y easy to lift and empty without fear of spill. Customer Rating: Summary: Worked for me... Comment: I was just looking for a way to get rid of the calluses on my feet, so I figured a foot spa was a good start.
I've read various reviews elsewhere about foot spas, and the Dr. Scholl came up as a favorite, so I'd figure I'd try it.
I'm not sure what people expect from foot spas, but I liked this one a lot. The unit has a lot of places to hold it, which is a big deal if you want to put water in it and move it to where you can get the thing to work. A lot of water can be VERY heavy, but you actually don't need much for this unit. There are lines on the interior for the amount, which is probably a few quarts at most.
The unit has a plastic hood thing where the touch-toe controls are located. You can turn it to massage and a very nifty bubbles massager thing. The interior where you place your feet has all these nubby things on it, where you can do a little self-massage. There are also spaces on both foot recepticles where you can place two different foot massage attachments. One has a raised cylinder that spins when you rub your feet against it; it looks like something like a small hamster wheel. That one, I didn't like because it's so high you can't rest your feet at all in the water. The rubbing action didn't help at all. There's another insert with just nubs on it, like the nubs in the bottom of the foot spa. This is much more comfortable, and does what the nubs do: a good place to rub the soles of your feet.
I used a peppermint foot bath additive that was okay (this is something I added; it's not included with the foot spa.) The additive was okay, not something I'd pay for again, but the bad thing about it was that it impeded my use of the bubble mechanism. Everytime I hit that, the peppermint stuff FOAMED up ridiculously and spilled out of the foot spa.
That's a shame, because the nicest thing about this device is that bubble mechanism. it really IS a pleasant sensation (so next time, if I add anything to the foot bath, I'll make sure it's NON-foaming!)
You have to put HOT water in this. The massage control also has a heat controller. It does NOT, as the directions say, make cold water hot. It does, however, keep hot water hotter longer. I used this for 20 minutes the first time around, and the very hot water I used was still nicely warm when I was through.
Cleaning this is a bit of a bear. The blue shield that houses the control device and helps keep the water warm is not removable. That means you have to go slinging around inside the device to wash and dry it. Just a nuisance, and not enough to turn me off this foot spa.
The cord is sufficently long, and it wraps around the elevated feet of the unit for storage.
The only other thing I'd mention is when you wash it out, be SURE to tip it almost upside down to get rid of the water. The thin blue strip that runs down the center of each of the foot areas is where the bubbles come out; that seems to hold quite a bit of water even after you're done emptying it. Just turn it over and give it a good shake, and that'll take care of it.
All in all, I'd recommend this. It's pleasant, it works well, and the softened calluses were easy for me to pumice off after a 20-minute soak. Customer Rating: Summary: Not worth it Comment: A big disappointment.After filling with hot water as instructed the water temp cooled off immediately regardless of the "warmer" as advertized.It was too shallow to cover the feet if massage attachments were in place.I returned it for a refund.
