Waterpik Cordless Freedom Review

Waterpik Cordless Freedom Review 5

Our Verdict

The WF-03 Cordless Freedom for Waterpik, does exactly what it was designed to do and offers a good clean of the interdental spaces.

The lack of a rotating nozzle is too potentially an issue for some.

The small water tank doesn’t allow for a long flossing time, but this is a problem shared by the vast majority of cordless options.

The Waterpik Cordless Advanced is a better cordless option, but it doesn’t benefit from the removable AA batteries like the Cordless Freedom.

Pros

  • Cordless – not restricted by wires
  • Excellent cleaning performance
  • 2 pressure settings
  • Grippy handle

Cons

  • No battery status feedback
  • No rotating nozzle to give extra control
  • Quite bulky in hand

Fairywill 5020E Water Flosser Review

Fairywill 5020E Water Flosser Review 6

Editor’s Note

As of 6th July 2021, Fairywill products are no longer available on Amazon.

It is now selling products via eBay, so we have included this as a buying option below.

We still recommend Fairywill as a good budget option, based on our own hands-on testing. 

Our Verdict

The Fairywill 5020E is a strong performing and very good value water flosser.

It has a lot to offer, in particular the very large 300ml (10.5oz) water tank.  You can achieve a thorough flossing, without the need to refill.

The materials feel a little cheap in places and the charging port isn’t ideal. It has an easy to lose port cover.  

But, the 3 pressure settings, long battery life and inclusion of 8 nozzles make this a great choice.

Pros

  • Cordless – not restricted by wires
  • A large water tank (300ml) means no more refilling to complete a session
  • Rechargeable built-in battery lasts up to 3 weeks
  • 3 pressure settings
  • 8 jet tips included in the box
  • Various colour options available
  • Great value for money

Cons

  • It is quite bulky and isn’t ideally suited for travel
  • The materials feel a little cheap in places
  • The nozzle is difficult to rotate
  • Easy to lose charging port cover
  • No travel pouch included

Fairywill 5020A Water Flosser Review

Fairywill 5020A Water Flosser Review 7

Editor’s Note

As of 6th July 2021, Fairywill products are no longer available on Amazon.

It is now selling products via eBay, so we have included this as a buying option below.

We still recommend Fairywill as a good budget option, based on our own hands-on testing. 

Our Verdict

There is no denying that the Fairywill 5020A is a good water flosser for the money.

It has 3 pressure settings, a long battery life and rotatable nozzle.

For the price there isn’t much to dislike.

Yet, for only a few pounds more you can get the 5020E.  This has a water tank twice the capacity of the 5020A.  You also get an extra 6 nozzles included.

This 5020A is more compact. Unless you travel frequently opt for the 5020E and enjoy the longer flossing times.

Pros

  • Cordless – not restricted by wires
  • Rechargeable built-in battery lasts up to 3 weeks
  • 3 pressure settings
  • Good value for money

Cons

  • 150ml water tank – may need a refill to complete thorough flossing
  • The materials feel a little cheap in places
  • The nozzle is difficult to rotate
  • Easy to lose charging port cover
  • No travel pouch included

Waterpik Cordless Select Review

Waterpik Cordless Select Review 9

Our Verdict

The Waterpik Cordless Select cleans between the teeth and along the gumline well.

I have found the cleaning results to be excellent.

You can get finite control from the easy to rotate nozzle. The 2 pressure settings give some degree of choice.

The minimal look of the unit is appealing, and I like the magnetic USB charging cable.

I find it harder and more awkward to hold than most other cordless flossers.

For me, this feels quite expensive. The more premium Cordless Advanced appears better value for money.

Pros

  • Cordless – not restricted by wires
  • Excellent cleaning performance
  • Easy to rotate the nozzle for greater control
  • 2 pressure settings
  • Easy to attach USB magnetic charging cable

Cons

  • Not as easy to grip & hold as some other models
  • Doesn’t remember the pressure/mode setting
  • It is quite bulky and isn’t ideally suited for travel
  • No travel pouch included
  • Better value options exist

Burst Water Flosser Review

Burst Water Flosser Box

Our Verdict

The Burst cordless water flosser is a strong performing water flosser.

It looks smart and is available in a few different colour options.

With 3 different modes on offer you can find the right pressure setting, to suit you.

The battery life is excellent and the provided USB charger is very convenient.

Unfortunately, the capacity of the water tank is quite small at 110ml. The turbo mode will drain the tank in as little as 20 seconds.  This might not be enough time for you to complete the thorough clean.

Burst ships its flosser from the USA. With shipping and taxes, this makes the water flosser much more expensive than other great alternatives.

Pros

  • Design
  • 3 pressure/mode settings
  • Interchangeable tips
  • Battery life
  • USB charging
  • Subscription

Cons

Waterpik Cordless Advanced WP-560 Review

Waterpik Cordless Water Flosser

Our Verdict

The best cordless water flosser available.

It isn’t the cheapest.  But, it is made by a leading brand that invests in clinical research.

It is stylish, comfortable to hold in hand and really easy to use.

The 207ml tank is just large enough to offer a thorough flossing session.  There are 3 different pressure settings to choose from.

I am very pleased with the cleaning results.

The magnetic charger is a really convenient hassle free approach.

The included travel pouch and accessories are welcomed extras.

Pros

  • Cordless – not restricted by wires
  • Excellent cleaning performance
  • Easy to rotate the nozzle for easier control
  • Grippy handle
  • 3 pressure settings
  • Easy to attach magnetic charger
  • Different colour options available
  • Travel pouch included in the box

Oral-B Aquacare 6 Pro-Expert Water Flosser Review

Oral-B Aquacare 6 review header image.

Our Verdict

The Aquacare 6 Pro Expert ticks the basic boxes required for being a cordless water flosser.

However, whilst it does the job, it is far from the best option available today and I don’t believe really represents what Oral-B is capable of producing.

The number of modes is a bit misleading and the overall design and quality isn’t perfect.

It is expensive compared to the competition. Alternatives offer better value.

See our posts on the top rated cordless water flossers for more choice.

Pros

  • Cordless
  • Rechargeable
  • Different water streams

Cons

  • Build quality
  • Nozzle design and rotation
  • Button placement
  • Modes/intensity settings
  • No travel case
  • Chunky charging stand
  • Price (better value options exist)

Oral-B Aquacare 4 Water Flosser Review

Aquacare 4 review header image

Our Verdict

The Aquacare 4 just about does the job.

It is not the best example of a cordless water flosser.

I have used equivalent products from lesser-known brands that have delivered a better overall experience.

The build quality is questionable.

The design and button placement isn’t ideal.

The power of the water jet isn’t the most intense and the number of advertised modes is a bit misleading.

I expected better from a brand leader like Oral-B.

See my other recommendations below, or see our best cordless water flosser article.

Pros

  • Cordless
  • Rechargeable
  • Different water streams

Cons

  • Build quality
  • Nozzle design and rotation
  • Button placement
  • Modes/intensity settings
  • No travel case
  • Chunky charging stand

Waterpik Sonic-Fusion Review

Waterpik Sonic-Fusion Review

Editor’s Note

The images used in this review are of the USA variant of the Sonic-Fusion. The images show a black with copper coloured variant of the device, which is not currently available in the UK. Aside from the colour and plug all other elements are the same.

Our Verdict

As a concept idea, this is a great idea.

However, sadly the actual product fails to deliver.

You are best buying a separate water flosser and electric toothbrush rather than this combo option.

Pros

  • Toothbrush and water flosser combined
  • Stylish design
  • Timer and pacer encourage brushing for the recommended time
  • Choose between 10 different pressure settings

Cons

  • Toothbrush battery life is poor
  • Combines two products into one – conceptually great, poor execution
  • Not suitable for all – only 1 style tip
  • The water flosser is not portable
  • Expensive (see other choices)

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser Review

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser Review 13

Editor’s Note

The Waterpik Ultra Plus is a slightly updated version of the Ultra (non plus variant) reviewed here.

The key differences are:

  • The colour of the unit
  • Subtle design differences
  • The Ultra Plus has a slider switch on the handle rather than a push button

Our Verdict

It is bulky and noise compared to regular string floss.

But, it is clinically proven to improve the health of your gums and can feel a lot less awkward and fiddly once you have mastered the technique.

Whilst the WP-120 Ultra does all you need of it, the newer WP-600/662 is a better choice for most. It is quieter and as comparably priced.

Pros

  • Large water tank
  • Choose between 10 different pressure settings
  • Various tips included for individual specific needs
  • 3 year warranty

Cons

  • Noisy

Waterpik Professional Whitening Water Flosser Review

Waterpik Professional Whitening Water Flosser Review 14

Our Verdict

An excellent water flosser it really is.

However, the ‘whitening’ element is a bit overhyped, will not work for all and is an expensive route to go if you want whiter teeth.

Opting for the Waterpik WP-600/662 represents better value for money.

Pros

  • Good sized water reservoir
  • Choose between 10 different pressure settings
  • Various tips included for individual specific needs
  • On/off switch on handle
  • Whitening tablets offer a nice taste to enhance the experience
  • Relatively quiet

Cons

  • Whitening benefits are limited
  • Whitening tablets are expensive
  • No ability to rotate the tips 360 degrees
  • Different tips to other Waterpik models
  • Better value options exist (see other options)

Oral-B OxyJet Review

Oral-B OxyJet Review 15

Our Verdict

The OxyJet does what it is supposed to, it puts water out at an adjustable pressure to rinse away bacteria, plaque and food debris from in between the teeth and along the gumline.

Sadly though it has been beaten by the competition who offer more features, better quality and reliability for a lesser price.

Pros

  • Easier & less hassle than regular floss
  • Various pressure settings
  • Wall mountable

Cons

  • A large unit because of what it is.
  • Quite messy until you are well practised.
  • Quality is ok, but not brilliant
