While some would argue that buying a toothbrush sanitiser is perhaps overkill, I opted to get one after reading a recent article on the BBC website stating that gum disease has been found to have a negative effect on the heart. Yikes! After that, such a cheap & easy-to-use device seemed like a sensible investment.
This model has attachments which make it suitable for sanitising various Philips Sonicare & Braun Oral-B electric toothbrush heads. So if you buy a different model of brush in the future, it shouldn't be a problem.
It couldn't be any simpler to use - put toothbrush head in sanitiser, close door, press button. That's literally it! It takes about 10 minutes & the front display lights up slightly while in use. Because it's just a UV bulb, it doesn't make any noise, either. It has a 2-pin plug which can cope with different voltages, so can presumably be used abroad.
It's slightly too large to fit on a bathroom sink but as the manual is keen to point out, perching electrical items on the edge of something filled with water isn't a particularly good idea! But it's not too hard to find space elsewhere for such a compact unit.
In short - this is a hassle-free gadget you can simply use & forget about, which offers affordable peace of mind. What's not to like?
