1.0 out of 5 stars painful, 30 Sept. 2009
By 
This review is from: HoMedics BB50 Bubble mate Luxury Foot Bubbler With Heat (Personal Care)
This machine has two settings: "heat and bubbles" and "off". There is a pour off funnel on the front of the machine for convenient emptying.

The heater doesn't keep the water warmer for any longer than our usual old blue bowl.

The bubbles were positioned in a place were all they did was circulate and splash the water - the jets are not located under where the feet would lie. The sides are a little too low; maybe another inch or two would have been better.

There are two patterns of spikes on both sides of the "footbath" (mirror images of each other), these are very painful to put your feet on.

The spikes are 1 cm in length and just less than 2 mm wide. They are positioned in two groups (9 cm long and 3.5 cm wide) and are situated in a place that puts them under the soft instep of the foot. Without any movement, or any type of extra pressure on these spikes, they are extremely uncomfortable. There is no way of positioning your feet in the "footbath" where they can avoid these spikes.

It did cause a great deal of giggling in the house when someone pointed out that it looked like a large heated bedpan.

My feet weren't sore before they went in the "footbath" but they were when they came out; my mother's feet were tender when they went in and though she only had them in for a short time they became extremely painful.

I was under the impression that "footbaths" were meant to soothe sore and tired feet, this did the complete opposite. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
