  • Must be logged in and a Kohl's Charge card holder and pay at least partially with your Kohl's Charge to apply coupons above.
  • Note the catalog picture looks like there is a spare head, but that is only showing the ability to remove the head. Comes with one head only as shown on the product page at kohls.com.

By the way, I use this daily, and you may see comments here or elsewhere about messiness developing inside the cap of the removable head.
All you need to do is tilt it above horizon level to keep toothpaste and slobber out of it. Gravity is your ally. Mine never gets messy. I check it monthly. I change the head quarterly as advised.

There are silicone covers if you are willing to spend more than the brush, but imo not needed if you teach yourself to not tilt downward while brushing.
Here is the main example: 3 pack for $9.99+$4 shipping:

Heads up: Here is a link to another Sonicare related thread for Kroger customers. They have some digital coupons out for many Sonicare items.

I hope this helps anyone who decides anything there is better suited for their needs. hug

And NO. These do not get moldy if you simply unscrew the brush from the base when you're done using it.

I believe this would be a better brush than the Oral-B if that is one that spins. These are ultrasonic and I have read they beat the spin style brushes for performance/effectiveness.
I do know these particular ones (E-series) have been around for several years. The latest style of these Philips ultrasonics is the Series 3 version.
Series 2 and 3 have different brush heads and they are not interchangeable with the E-Series. They have Cheaper brush head replacements, but we can find great Amazon deals for quality knockoff E-Series, and even very good sale prices on OEM replacement heads sometimes @ Costco or Amazon, etc. Hope this helps.

Can anyone explain me why the Philips Sonicare electrical toothbrush is perpetually on sale, whereas the Oral-B is only on sale a few hours during BF?

I think they are trying to get rid of the ones with the old style brush heads.

You only need one form for up to the max purchased (5). I always take the precaution of making a little note and highlight it on their forms to show them how many I bought, and the total rebate, in case they aren't paying close attention. They always pay me correctly.

As many have mentioned, this older version can be a bit challenging to keep clean. You need one of those ring seals or you'll need to rinse the brush head after every use or two. Failure to do so can lead to some grungy buildup. I used this brush for a long time before finally upgrading. I wouldn't be able to go back.

It is easy to compensate for by tilting your head back a little, instead of forward/downward while brushing. Very easy habit to learn.
The main advantages of the new style I see is the slimmer body, cheaper head replacements and presumably lighter weight. A possible con may be less time between charges, but I have not owned the newer style.

I would not recommend on buying this Sonicare model. Philips Sonicare Essence is the only model that is not compatible with all types of Sonicare brush heads.

Sonicare has various models mainly based on price. Surely higher priced models have more features and build qualities but they do NOT provide better cleaning performance, especially considering price difference. Sonicare Series 3 have lithium batteries and all lower models have NI-Mh batteries. Unless you have really limited budget, buy at least Series 2 or better.

FYI Do Not buy the bundle with UV sterlizer. No matter you use the sterlizer or not, You have to replace the head every 3 month and UV sterlization does provide meaningful difference especially if you don't change the brush head as scheduled.

I've had mine over a year. Lasts a month or more between recharging. I have the one that uses replaceable AA's as well for DW. For value I doubt you can beat them when you get them on a good sale like this. I anticipate at least another couple years of service before battery degradation is noticeable, if my electric razor experience from the good old days has taught me anything.

BTW, Series 3 are not compatible with all sonicare brush heads either. Essence is compatible with E-series brush heads. Series 3 is compatible with their brush heads and I am supposing you meant they are compatible with series 2 heads as well- a completely different type than E- series.

Yes lithium batteries are better. They cost a lot more to get the model with them. What price point or deal can you link to for your suggestion that justifies the upgrade? You bring up an alternative but no deal for it.

My honest assessment is with cheaper brush head replacements, and Lithium batteries, it will depend on how long the Lithiums last (or until some other issue comes up) until you get to your break even value point. In the long term your cost of operation could even be less if you catch a great sale on series 3. So there are pros and cons either way.

Had mine since July 2016 Prime Day deal for ~$14, and have not seen that price since, other than a coupon glitch at WM when they went for $15 but that was also YMMV.

You even point out that paying higher prices for expensive models with more bells and whistles does not mean a better job of brushing. I agree.

If you decide to go crap in the other current popular thread(s) about the Essence (selling at higher prices), first proofread, fix your spelling errors (sterilization related), and edit your sterilizer paragraph, which seems contradictory as written. I think you left out some key word(s). I tried to give you a little help in the quoted portion, to get you started. I think I understand your meaning if I am correct with my guess.

Update:
I have just submitted a new thread to offer folks an alternative to this deal for many Sonicare items available at Kroger with digital coupon discounts they came out with. Maybe you will be able to use that info to save on what you like. Hopefully anyone who might be on the fence but want to spend much more can save on those.

I wanted one for a while but was hesitant to buy because everyone said how they get moldy and stuff. I bought one after reading a comment on how you need to clean it.....I've had mine for several months now and have had no issues. I clean and rinse after every use and it takes about 2 seconds. Those with mold are some nasty folks. Rinse it, dry with a towel and toss back on the charger.
