Oral-B Smart Clean 360 Review

Oral-B Smart Clean 360 Review Header

Editor’s Note

This is not a full review of the Oral-B Smart Clean 360 rechargeable electric toothbrush like you might be expecting.

This is because the Smart Clean is essentially identical to the Oral-B Smart 1500, which I have already reviewed in great detail.

I will explain in the following paragraphs what all the differences are.

But essentially, the Smart Clean 360 is a package containing 2 x Oral-B Smart 1500 toothbrushes.

If you need or desire 2 brushes, then they are an excellent buy. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

The 1500 is now one of our most recommended products based on the features and performance for the price.

You can buy it from Costco or eBay.

Oral-B Smart Clean 360  – Explained

The Smart Clean 360 is a package that contains the following items:

  • 2 x Electric toothbrush handles
  • 2 x Precision Clean brush heads
  • 1 x FlossAction brush head
  • 2 x Travel cases
  • 2 x Charging stands
  • Documentation

Where more often than not a toothbrush is sold as a single unit, in this instance the Smart Clean 360 contains 2 toothbrushes and accessories.  It is what I call a dual handled package.

The intention and benefit is an offering that is a better value option than perhaps buying 2 brushes separately.

Oral-B Smart Clean 360 box Contents

Whilst Oral-B and retailers themselves do not specifically state this, the Smart Clean 360 brush handles are identical to the Oral-B Smart 1500.

They have the same design, cleaning modes and features as the Smart 1500.

This means you get the following features:

  • Oral-B 3D movement cleaning system (Oscillating-Rotating-Pulsating)
  • Rechargeable battery
  • 14+ day battery life
  • 3 cleaning modes (Daily Clean, Sensitive and Whitening)
  • 360 degree visible pressure sensor
  • 2 minute timer including quadpacer
  • Interchangeable brush heads
  • Water resistant brush handle
  • 2 year warranty

What sets them apart is the name, box contents and the price.

With the Smart 1500, you get the following items in the box:

  • 1 x Oral-B Smart 1500 electric toothbrush handle
  • 1 x CrossAction brush head
  • 1 x Charging stand
  • Documentation
Oral-B Smart 1500 Electric Toothbrush in Hand

Compare this with the items in the box with the Smart Clean 360 and you can see that the differences are:

  • An extra brush handle
  • An extra charging stand
  • 2 x PrecisionClean brush heads and 1 x FlossAction rather than 1 x CrossAction head
  • 2 x Travel cases not included with the Smart 1500

Unlike the Smart 1500, you do not get the choice of the color of the handle.

The 1500 is available in the following 4 colors:

  • Light Rose 
  • Navy 
  • Black
  • Jet White

With the 360 variant, you get:

  • Navy
  • Jet White

I was very impressed with the Smart 1500 electric toothbrush in my hands-on testing.

It was awarded a 5 star rating overall given the cleaning performance, features and price.

In fact, it is now one of the models I recommend most to people.

It offers all the essential features you need and does not come with lots of unnecessary extras.  You get great value for money, and this trend continues with the Smart Clean 360.

Naturally, it is a little more expensive because it includes 2 handles rather than 1, but the cost per handle is the same if not less than the Smart 1500.

The Smart 1500 has a retail price of $79.99 but sells for $65 on average.

Smart Clean 360 Retail Box

The Smart Clean 360 has a retail price of around $139.99.  The average selling price seems to be around $120, but I have seen it for as little as $100.

At $120, that is $60 per handle, $5 less than the 1500 and you get the added benefit of the travel case and additional charging stand.

I will for the record say, I am not entirely sure why Oral-B is including 3 brush heads when there are 2 handles.  Would make more sense to include just 2 or maybe 4?

None the less, if you really want to know what the Smart Clean 360 is like to use and what all the pros and cons are, then you should read and watch my Smart 1500 review.

Of course, should you have any questions, do leave them in the comments, or get in contact, I am happy to help.

The Smart Clean 360 package is for me pretty much a must buy package, if you need or want 2 brush handles.

It is a really great option for families or couples.

  1. Hello, is the Oral B Smart Clean 360 still manufactured and sold? And are brush replacements still being sold for it – and for how much longer? I bought mine in Costco in December 2020 and still haven’t taken it out of the box. My dentist sells – at a good discount – the iO Oral B Series 9 with the app for brushing that he highly recommends. I’m deciding whether or not to return the 360 and buy the iO from my dentist because it seems to be much newer and better. Or is the 360 really sufficient and i should keep it assuming I can get brush replacements? Your thoughts on this are greatly appreciated! Thank you, Susan

    • Hi Susan.

      I do believe it is still being made and sold, it is listed on Costco’s website. I can’t comment on how much longer it will be on sale for I have no access to this information.

      The brush heads are available from a variety of different outlets, not just Costco. There are a variety of compatible brush heads for this toothbrush that can easily be acquired. These heads are used for a whole variety of different Oral-B products, so they will be around for a long time yet.

      The iO is a very capable toothbrush. However, used correctly, the iO isn’t going to clean your teeth any better than the 360.

      There are arguments that elements of the iO might help encourage you to brush better and for longer than you might be already. However, you are paying for a lot of technology, that the vast majority get no significant benefit from.

      Of course, everyone is different, but from our testing and experience, few continue to use the app and smart features for extended periods of time.

      It ultimately has to be your decision on what you feel is right for you.

  2. As you said “Smart Clean 360 brush handles are identical to the Oral-B Smart 1500”. However I find differences on the package. Smart Clean 360 removes 400% plaque, while Smart 1500 removes 500% plaque.
    Can you explain more on those information?

      Oral-B will often cite results from difficult clinical studies to help market products.

      The different claims are likely based on the different brush heads that come supplied, the 360 with the Precision Clean heads and the Smart 1500 with CrossAction.

      Oral-B themselves are best placed to answer this.

  3. Can you tell me how many pulsations per minute the 360 has. I noticed it says removes 400 times more plaque than regular brushing. The Triumph 9000 series says 40,000 pulsations per minute and removes up to 500 times more plaque…

    Reply
    • Hi Brian.

      I understand it to be 8,800 oscillations and 40,000 pulsations.

      The amount of plaque removed/quoted depends on the original clinical study used in the marketing data at the time.

    • Hi Nancy. Yes. On the back of the handle are a series of dimples that provide some grip/resistance to the fingertip. There are no raised ridges as is the case on some other models.

  4. Your article states that the Smart 1500 has 3 cleaning modes. However, the Oral B web site states that the Smart 1500 has only TWO cleaning modes.

    Reply
    • Hi Richard.

      Thanks for your comment. I can confirm that the Smart 1500 that we purchased, tested and reviewed has 3 modes. The Oral-B website has since been updated to suggest 2 modes rather than 3.

      I have yet to ascertain whether this is an error on their part or they have further updated the model to disable the third mode that was available on the model we purchased.

  5. We like the Oral B Smart Clean 360 we bought at Costco . . . but:
    Is there a way we are supposed to set the 2 minute timer. Ours never shuts off.

    There is no user manual for it and I haven’t found one on line yet.

    Please help.

    Reply
    • Hi Don.

      The toothbrush does not turn itself off automatically after 2 minutes, if that is what you are looking for.

      There is no way to configure this either. You have to turn it off by pressing the power button.

      I hope that helps.
