Stovetop Pizza Oven Review: All You need to Know about Pizzacraft Pizzeria Pronto Oven

Here is my Stovetop Pizza Oven Review. 

I don’t eat bread! What?!!! Yeah, however great Pizzas for me is to die for. And I can only eat pizza from a few pizzerias in town. My boys are like me only that they can eat anything labeled as pizza. So I make homemade pizzas often. I recently discovered a fast and easy stove top pizza recipe that makes my life a lot easier. The results- yummy! The same day I discovered that Pizzacraft has designed a Stovetop Pizza Oven that will turn your kitchen to the best pizzeria in town and save you time and energy. Its called:

The Pizzacraft PC0601 Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven

Stovetop Pizza Oven

Compared to Conventional oven

Did you know that (asides recipe) the main reason why pizzas you get from your favorite pizzeria tastes much better than the ones you make in your kitchen is because they cook theirs under really high heat? You see, your conventional oven can only go up to about 500 degrees F and it will take about an hour to get it to that temperature. This Stovetop oven was designed to heat up really fast. In just about 15 mins your oven is ready to make you nice pizzas and it will cook your pizza in about 6 minutes. This means that your heart aches due to high utility bills will reduce.
With this stovetop pizza oven, you get an optimal pizza cooking environment. The design helps to absorb, trap and evenly distribute heat efficiently to your pizza, eliminating hot spots.
Pizzacraft promises you pizzeria pizza with this pizza pronto oven and many people have said the promise was fulfilled. I am definitely putting this on my Christmas shopping list.

Before your buy…

Gas Burner not electric

This stovetop oven will not work well with an electric range or an induction burner. It works best with a gas range. And best the burner recommended must have an output of about 9500 – 1500 BTUs. The output will affect your preheating and cook time. If your burner’s output is higher you will just need to adjust accordingly. Some people may want to use this on their gas grill but you have to make sure you do not put it on the grill itself, but you can put it on the side burner of your gas grill and that should be fine. Just remember to watch out for any material that is not heat resistant.

Recommended Stove Top Design

This oven get really hot and so it must fit perfectly on the burner and when on the burner it must not touch any material on your stove that can be destroyed by heat. For example, plastic knobs, or any other material or appliance. If your stove is also next to a countertop made with materials that are not heat resistant then you may consider ignoring this for now.
Stovetop Pizza Oven

You must make sure that the bottom of the oven sits securely on the burn if you will be using the stove type on the left. It must now touch the knob.

How to Cook Your Pizza

This oven is very easy to use, to start simply center the stovetop pizza oven on the gas burner and turn is on the medium-high. Shut the door of the oven and preheat for about 5 minutes.Depending on the BTU of your gas range you many need to preheat a bit longer.
This Pizzacraft stovetop Pizza oven has its own built in thermometer which helps to let you know when it’s best to start cooking your pizza. When the thermometer read ………… go ahead and put your pizza into the oven.
Use your pizza peel to place pizza inside the oven. Flour the pizza peel very well before placing the pizza on, that way your pizza will easily fall on the pizza stone and not stick to the pizza peel.
Cook for about 3 minutes and then use the pizza peel to lift the pizza off the pizza oven then give it an 180-degree turn so as to cook the other side and then place pizza back into the oven.
Always remember that this oven is hot so endeavor to use a heat gloves whenever you are using the oven.

Frozen or not and even gluten free recipe

Some nights you when you don’t have the luxury of time to whip up a big dinner, You can also rely on this stovetop pronto oven. just bring out the frozen pizza from the freezer and cook on this pizzeria pronto oven. Any pizza recipe would work on this even the gluten free pizza.

Can it bake other things?

I won’t recommend it because the door is not tight. However, I would try making things like baguette or garlic bread on it and as you see the results you can make some adjustments or simply stick to the conventional oven.

Easy To Store?

If you are like me you want to make the best meals for your family but you still want your space to be nice and clutter free. This stovetop pizza oven is not just going to make cooking pizza easy but it will also make your life easy because when you are done using it you can easily store it away with your other pots or utensils. However, I also see this Oven doing the work of a microwave oven when it comes to warming up pastries. I will even try to make a pie with it to see the result. I can assure you that you will never warm your pizza in a microwave any longer. And that also means healthy.check price

Not too large nor too heavy

This oven is not going to take over your kitchen space like many table-top ovens. In short, it’s about the size of a large pot and so can be stored in the kitchen cabinet when not being used. It weighs 17.1lbs when still in packaging but without the package, it is 14.7lbs, not bad at all. That about half the size of your regular countertop microwave oven.  The dimensions are 14.2 x 6.7 x 16.9 inches. That’s about the same dimensions for your medium microwave only half the height.
The oven will give you a nice 12-inch pizza.

No more Soggy Pizza

One thing about stove top pizzas or rewarming pizzas in a microwave is that you have to be careful so that moisture from your pot lid does not drop on your pizza causing your pizza to be soggy. Guess what? You can say goodbye to soggy pizzas for life, whether you are making it from scratch or rewarming your pizza the moisture vent on this stovetop pizza oven will all the moisture to escape leaving your pizza very nice and yummy.
Stovetop Pizza Oven

To Clean Your Stovetop Pizza Oven

I will recommend that you use your soft pizza stone brush (or any soft grill brush you own) to clean the stone after each use. That way you remove any crust crumbs or cheese build up before it becomes harder to clean. This way your stone will always be ready for you each time you want to. And again use a damp towel to wipe when cool (before and after each use).

What Comes in the Box?

The Oven is well packaged in a nice box and comes with the owners manual to help you and it should take you an average of 15mins to set up. The foldable pizza peel and soft brush by Pizzacraft do not come with the box. You would need to buy that separately.

Downside of the Oven

  • Price relatively high, it’s not really inexpensive but when you consider the money you will save on your utility bills if you have to preheat your conventional oven for long,   then you may consider grabbing this fast. Heats way faster than your oven and makes better pizza so why not?
  • Hot surface, just like most ovens you have to be careful when using this. In short, I would advise using a heat resistant gloves when cooking with it as the oven can become really hot.
  • No, it only works on the gas range, not on the electric stove.
  • Preheating & Cooking time frame. due to the fact that all stoves do not have the same output, you may need to discover the normal preheat and cook time with your stove. However, as soon as you get it then you can calculate better.
  • Only one pizza at a time. In a conventional oven, you can risk making 2 or more at once, but the result is not the same. If you are hosting a party or if you have a large family, I  will recommend you get all your pizzas ready and may be stored in the refrigerator while each one is cooked. Pizza making is always a fun thing in my home and for sure it helps the family to get together. Living your home with the nice aroma.
  • This pronto pizza oven is made in china. I would think the company is trying to cut cost in order for the end user to get a better price. But of course, that means some jobs that were supposed to be locally done are outsourced.

What are other people saying about the Pizzacraft PC0601 Pizzeria Pronto Stovetop Pizza Oven?

“Just tried it out today and it worked great – fantastic, fast pizzas to feed the whole family.”

“Great product makes great pizza”

“I was pleasantly surprised at how well this pizza oven worked. I make pizza about twice a week and I’ve been making them for years usually on the grill outdoors and in the oven in the Winter. This stovetop pizza oven is much more convenient than heating up the oven.”

“I love this thing, it cooks the pizza perfectly. It might seem like a gimmick, but it’s not.”

Now you can have gourmet pizza even when you are in an off grid location or when you are trying to conserve energy. I always make my own pizza dough and freeze them in advance but you will cut your cook time in half if you get any of the pizza doughs in the grocery stores near you.
Well, that’s my pizzeria pronto review, I hope it helps you.

Where Can You Buy This Pizzeria Pronto Pizza Oven?

It’s beginning to get into some stores but mostly you can find it and other accessories you need on Amazon. And with the price above $50 you also get it shipped to you for free.  Why not?  Want more of my reviews click here

You Can Have Brand New Dinning Chairs With This Tool!

Yes!staple gun
You can have brand new dinning chairs for a fraction of the price of a new one. The tool I used has now become my favorite house fixture tool. staple gun
The Staple Gun. 

 

Let me tell you more:

I got my dinning table set in 2012, the seat cover came in nude colour and velvety in nature. It’s easy to clean however, very easy to dirty as well. And with 2 active boys around my efforts are unnoticed everyday. I got an idea sometimes ago to find a clear plastic (transparent rubber sheet) to cover it so that it can just be wipeable but never found a good one.

Until my last trip to ikea, when I found this nice fabric that is like plastic yet sophisticated enough to be elegant. I also got my staple gun from a hardware store. But today was the day. As usual someone spilled Fanta (Orange Drink like mirinda) on the chairs and that was it, I had had enough. Brought out my tools, got the whole house working and here is the before and after.


All I did was unscrew the nuts attaching the seat to the metal frame, used the seat to measure the fabric needed for each seat. Living about 3 inches on each side to allow for space to staple.

 I removed the black fabrics off the base, and then stapled the new fabric on top of the old one. The first staples went to the 4 sides of each seat to keep the fabric in place, then all around doing the corners last. The corners requires a bit of care so as to have a clean final look.
After showing my before and after picture, many wanted to have this kinda tools so as to do the same.

However, the challenge became how and where to find the tool in Nigeria.

 

Then I did a search to know where to find the staple gun and lo and behold it’s only a few thousands of Naira on Konga.com.

Buy yours now on Kongastapler n pin So instead of getting a new dinning set for 60,000 you only pay for fabric at the nearest market, staple gun, staples – all less than N20,000.

staple gun stapstapling

And you can use your staples again and again.

This concept will work well to change those simple ugly looking office chairs as well.

No More Wasting $$$ on Shipping Fees

This is good news for those of you fellow online shoppers out there. Amazon is giving you a chance to try out their amazing Prime shipping service for free for one month.

You and I know that the main reason we order from sites like amazon is not only because they have the best products and customer service, we also don’t like lining up in stores to buy. However the shipping cost can add up quickly if you make online purchases all the time like me, then you must sign up today or go back to the nightmare of department store shopping.

 

Since I signed up Amazon Prime account, I have saved a tonne of money on shipping fees.

So how does it work, You pay a fixed annual fee and you get most amazon items shipped to you free of charge. This is usually a standard 2 days shipping. Of course if you want it earlier then you may want to pay for overnight shipping (extra cost). However if you plan your shopping well, you wont need to worry about amazon shipping fees ever again and that means no more wasting money of high shipping fees. The trick though is to start your shopping early so you can beat the rush.

So if you have an event or festivity ahead and you have a list of things to order online, what you must do now is to make a list of all the people you want to buy a gift for and write down an idea of what you can get for them. Or make a list of items you need around the house. Then go over now to amazon and start adding things to your cart. Just make sure that you pick only the items with the ‘yellow check mark’ and a blue ‘prime’ right beside the item price like these:

check

Don’t forget to put your favourite tea beside you- its essential or coffee. At least you are not running around like a headless chicken in the stores right now.

Ciao!

Reviews: Best bibles for kids – boys and girls

Looking for the best bibles for kids – boys and girls?

Search no further. Here is a review of what I believe is a major player on the Best bibles for kids – boys and girls list. It has been a great addition to our family. I have done a video below to tell you more about our experience so far. And in all my conclusion is certain that the CEB Deep Blue Bibles series are the best Bibles for kids – boys and girls. After the video below,  I have also describe what I think will help you decide on which way to go.

From day one, I had always desired that my boys would love God’s words as much as I do (at least)
Sbest bibles for kids - boys and girlso when I attended a ladies conference that had a nice book stand with a good collection of kids bible, I knew I needed to pick one for my then 6yr old. And I must say I fell in love with this deep blue Bible for boys and girls. My son is very inquisitive and so I was so sure he would love this bible. He was just becoming a good reader at the point and so it was for him love at first sight.best bibles for kids - boys and girls

Up till today, he carries the bible everywhere. Watch the video to know more about my experience.

 

Before buying another bible, You must read further down in this review I call the best bibles for kids- boys and girls.

If you are looking for the number one bible to buy for a boy or a girl, then I will recommend to you that you look no further because this is by far the best bible for kids.

Kids Love It

From the moment I brought this bible home from the conference, my boys were very excited. It was originally meant for the 2 of them. My almost 6 then and the 2.5 year old. However, because big brother was already starting to read, it automatically became his. He carried it everywhere. Of course the first love was for the right to ownership.

Prior to this, we had been using bible.is during our family devotion and he also owned a few children’s bible before that. So he was already familiar to the bible stories and videos. He was also beginning to realize that there is a difference between the children’s bible and the real bible. So he was really happy to finally get a real bible.

Very Engaging & interactive

This bible is really cool. With some amazing kids characters reading along and discovering God’s words together, it was love at first sight. Adults love study bibles because the additions make the bible come alive and relevant to people’s lives. As soon as your kids find this bible, they will find that the content is engaging and hardly would they want to drop part with it.

Reading the bible created a reading habit in him. He would take his bible to the washroom and forget himself there. Many times I will be looking for him around the house and find him in the washroom completely lost in God’s words. Its really fun to see. As kids go through this bible, they seem to be interacting with this other characters in the scriptures.

Bet You Can!

All through the CEB Deep Blue bible, there is this section called bet you can. It gives you a portion of the scriptures to read within a specific time say 2 minutes. He loves it. He would time himself and race through reading it. Its truly fun. And this is one of the reason I am convinced that this is ones of the best bibles for kids – boys and girls.

Many of Their Questions Answered

This bible is full of great practical devotional notes. Because the bible was written long ago, the english structure can be a bit boring to younger readers. However, this bible makes it fun for kids and even adults. Many of the facts that are hard to explain are clearly explained in this bible. For sure it catches the attention of my boys. It has many bible trivia and other interactive elements to attract boys’ and girls’ inquisitive minds.

 

Did you know?

This a section that tell you more about the bible days, helping your child understand the context surrounding each portion.

This bible is similar to a real study bible only that its made for kids.best bibles for kids - boys and girls

I have found myself even as an adult reading this bible and really enjoying it.

Truly Best Bibles for kids – boys and girls

So again, if you wanted to know the best bible for kids – boy and girl, you have found it. It can serve as a birthday gift, christmas gift or even and school or church gift.

Of course you don’t need an occasion to encourage a child develop a serious desire for God’s words. You will be glad you did.

Just Bought Another Copy

This bible is available in printed paperback, hardcover, imitation leather, and DecoTone bindings. Ages 7–12 are recommended to use this bible but thats actually their thoughts because I just purchased another copy of the same bible for my younger son. And boy does he love his new bible. He is 6 years old. The same age his big brother was when he got his.

He had some work to get done over the summer vacations and I promised to get him his bible if he can finish the vacation activities. I ordered it and only gave it to him after he finished his work. He was so excited. His was not the leather back like his brother.

Now when you see the 2 boys, you see each with their bible. They do all the interactive elements together now. They learn memory verses.

Now during our family devotion they each read out loud from their own bibles, definitely a keeper on the Best bibles for kids – boys and girls list.

Get them excited about God’s word

This bibles come in the CEB (common English bible) translation.when I was going to pick out this bible, the first thing I did was to read a few familiar scriptures inside. Example John 3:16,  Genesis 1:1, John 1:1. This is the way I choose my bibles always. I want to see how each bible translate the verses I am familiar with. I use that to know how close to King James Version it is.  In this case I also check Songs of Solomon. That is a romantic book in the bible. I wanted to know how clear it will be for the boys. And I must say that it was easy to read so I knew it would be the perfect bible to get my kids excited about God’s word.

Downside to this Bible

Though I believe this is one of the Best bibles for kids – boys and girls, I think there is a down side to it; the only thing I have notice is not too bad but it is that CEB is not really a common translation of the bible. Though I am turning many parents around me into fans for the deep blue bible, others kids in church that already have bibles come with other translations like KJV, NLT, NIV…I completely think that kids must have the easy to read translations or they will be bored reading the bible and loose interest completely. So I recommend this bible and the CEB Translation. My boys now know many of their memory verses in CEB translation which is good all the same.

Where to Buy it

You can get this best bibles for kids – boys and girls at most books stores and also on amazon using the link below.

Make the most of your shopping with friends

Thinking about Shopping with friends

The other day I was thinking about the good and the bad of shopping with friends.  I remember the time I had just got a new job and needed some work clothes.

Easily intimidated but needed help

At the time, I wasn’t bold to really say my mind. Especially not when shopping with friends. I could easily get intimidated and pushed into buying what I don’t want, don’t like or cannot afford. I will rather buy it and deal with the issues after.

Being a person that didn’t love to shop with people, and at this point needing a second opinion, I was confused as to who to go around with. And mind you I was new in town so I really needed help to know which store would fit my needs at the time.

I remembered why I didn’t like having company when shopping. I remember there was a time at which I really didn’t seem to have a strong mind of my own. I would be with people and voluntarily choose what they say in order to avoid trouble. I didn’t want it to feel like they were doing me a favour by going out with me and that I must do as they say. Like why did you ask me to come if you were going to not take my idea as all in all?

Why do you need to go shopping with friends?

Well, I think friends are great additions to anyone’s life. If you are rich in good friends you would be able to achieve more and get better results for your life. For example, the more number of friends you have the better for you if you need to sell a product or an idea. Your friends will either just give you social media support or even sales.

Here are some things you get for shopping with friends

  1. Their experience. For example, if your friend has purchased something at a store before and had a good or bad experience, it pays you to shop with them. That way you learn from their experience.
  2. Their views. Sometimes a second opinion is what you need to say yes or outrightly say no.
  3. Their assistance. You may be trying out a dress in the dressing room and you need a size next to the one you have. Your friend could help you pick what you need or communicate with the store assistant.
  4. Their cheer. A friend is a representative of many others that would eventually see you in the outfit. They would be able to tell you right there whether is a WOW look or an OK look or even a No No.
  5. Just the support. Sometimes its just feel great to know you are not alone.

This and many other reasons are why I now believe that shopping with friends is a plus.

Well so this time, since I needed help, I went out still with a friend. And for some reason I decided to try being strong even with my friends around.  Here are some of the tips I used that really helped me to get the most of the shopping experience.

Tip to get the most of shopping with friends

  1. I did a budget of my entire money. That way I knew how much I was willing to spending during this trip. I didn’t want to end up following my friends opinion again my family budget.
  2. I went online to see some sample options I had and about how many pieces I am likely to get with the money I had to spend.
  3. Choose a friend that you like their judgement in the area you need help. For example, if you need a second opinion in the area of clothing, you should find someone that you like their taste  and dress sense. You should’t pick someone you find dresses shabbily. Its important that you learn from the pro at least the ones on your friends list.
  4.  When choosing who to go shopping with, go with the one friend that you are not intimidate by. The ones that tell you great reviews of you and are willing to be honest with you. Though its also important that your friend knows when to keep their opinion to themselves too if need be. That way you can be sure they can stop you from making dumb shopping decision.
  5. I communicated my budget and plan to my friend and so it was easier to work together. This really helped us to work together as we went from store to store. Also since I had an idea of how many tops and bottoms I needed, it was easier to decide what store to visit. And I did not feel pressured at all unlike the other time.

So next time you feel like getting a second opinion while you shop, but are not ready to over spend or look bad, then you should consider using my strategies above.

Especially when you are shopping for outfits or even kitchen stuffs, its really good and helpful when you have a second pair of eyes as against the store ladies. I always think they would see their product no matter what. So I sometimes believe that their opinions are not really reliable. And so if I am investing in a special piece or even a regular cloth, I would rather ask another shopper what they think than ask a really eloquent sales girl.

Also remember that having a few options is always better than just one. For example for those who are shopping for waterless cookwares, We have compiled a list of good cookwares that will give you options to look through or even share with friends. Healthy eating is a good way to go and thats what waterless cookwares provide. Read more here

So my dear, don’t hesitate next time. And please learn to be yourself with friends. Its your life, its your money then it means your opinion counts.

Till next time, make sure you are sure of what you are buying what you choose to buy.

  • Ensures even heating every time
  • Completely heat and cold resistant handles
  • Constructed of the most durable stainless steel called T304 and comes with a luxurious mirror finish on its outside. 

The Maxam Waterless Cookware set is definitely one of the most modern types of cooking technology that’s available today. It begins with a stunning and stark appearance with its’ seven-ply stainless steel mirror finish on the outside, and smooth satin finish within each pot or pan. Utilizing the new and improved nine element technology, this set also assures you that your food will be heated and cooked evenly as well as thoroughly each time. As per pricing, for less than $300, you can bring this finely made Maxam Surgical Stainless Steel Waterless Cookware system home. That is really peanuts when compared to the cost of getting even one of the Saladmaster waterless cookware set. Both Systems promises to last a lifetime.  Last but not least, this waterless cooking system has been designed to allow you to have healthier, tastier food for each and every meal.

What’s Special About the Saladmaster Waterless Cookware

maxam vs saladmaster

Again when doing the Maxam vs Saladmaster comparison you will notice that Saladmaster actually is made from a better metal: titanium.

  • Locking lids on each pot and pan for extra cooking security and ease of transport
  • Made from the highest quality stainless steel and titanium to allow even the most extreme cooking extravaganzas.
  • Unique vapor-valve technology enables easier and quicker steaming of food
  • 100% hot and cold resistant pot and pan handles

This is definitely a stronger cookware set. It is able to handle the commercial cooking. Those chefs who cater to a large audience find it easier to work with. That’s why it may be easier for the high-end restaurant to invest in this Saladmaster cookware because of the better and healthier food you can make from the piece.

maxam vs saladmasterThis cookware set that is for those who cook often and love to make sure that their food is as quality-rich as the utensils that it was cooked in. With the Saladmaster’s locking lids, you can be sure that during transport, your food will be safe in any event. The handles on these are heat and cold resistant, so you can keep the Saladmaster potholders in the drawer while draining or transferring one dish to another. I have written a more detailed review on the Maxam Waterless Cookware here and the best Waterless Cookware comparison here. 

The cost though of purchasing the Saladmaster set would be similar to a typical average downpayment. Yes, it’s expensive.

Maxam vs Saladmaster….conclusion

It goes without saying that both of these are wonderful and stunning cookware sets would be a terrific addition to any kitchen. However, in the debate of Maxam vs. Saladmaster, only you know what you need in terms of a cooking set.

Saladmaster seems to have a healthier outcome when cooking but since Maxam is healthier than the best stainless steel cookwares out in the market, I would say Maxam Waterless Cookware would be a better option for the average family out there.

The Maxam set is definitely for the more everyday type of chef, and the Saladmaster seems to be more for those who create large amounts of food with high amounts of quality and expertise required.

I hope this has been able to shed some light for you in the maxam cookware vs saladmaster comparison. All the best as you decide or should I say save some money 😉

Expect to pay anywhere from $160 to more than $190 depending on the choice of seller. This is one of the more affordable set among the best waterless cookware but it does have fewer pieces. The interiors and exteriors are same as that of Maxam and Sterlingcraft. The Chef’s set is made of T304 stainless steel as is obvious from the name. There are steam control knobs on top. The stainless steel bowls in the set can be used as boilers and also to cover the dome when roasting using the stove top.

This 12 pc set includes a 1.5 qt saucepan and 1.5 qt stockpot, both with cover. There is a 2 qt stockpot, a 3 qt stockpot and a 6 qt stockpot, all with covers.

waterless cookware comparison

WEWHA SHOP offers this 28-piece cookware set at as low as $210. Most sellers are charging more than that so you need to look for the best deal. This is the cheapest price right now and there is a shipping charge of $4.99. There are clearly more pieces than the other sets we have talked about. This doesn’t make it the absolute best waterless cookware. This is where waterless cookware comparison becomes a bit tricky. The T304 stainless steel grade puts this in the same club as the Sterlingcraft and the Chef sets. But when you engage in waterless cookware brand comparison you ought to check the waterless cookware brands reviews from consumers or cooks. This would be number 4 on the list.

This set is good for various types of dishes but you would notice the lack of detail or design components that set the likes of Maxam apart.

The sleek designs, the attention to detail and the durability of the pieces in this set would certainly impress any and sundry. The real trouble is the price. It is one of the priciest among the best waterless cooker. For four pieces you are expected to pay a substantially high price, almost a hundred bucks a piece. The last on my waterless cookware comparison is actually one of the best.

In Conclusion

There are other waterless cookware brands but most have limited sets to offer. The assessment of multiple brands and waterless cookware comparison would not be exhaustive. However, you should focus on the reliability of the pieces. There have been some complains pertaining to many brands, that their cookware gets too hot or the handles come off, the valves don’t control steam as effectively as they should and other hiccups. You need to pick up the best waterless cookware that will suit your style and kind of cooking. You should also try to balance the cost and quality. It is very easy to pick some premium cookware when you can shell out a thousand or so but you need to stay in the realms of reasonability.

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser Review

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser reviewI bought my Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser about 2 years ago. I had been looking for a way to floss without much stress. I had tried using the regular flosser and it was always so cumbersome until I discovered the waterpik water flosser. I decided to add this Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser Review to WiBi so that other people like me would find it and hopefully it will serve you too.

Which is the best Water Flosser?

While I was doing my research on which water flosser to buy, my aim was to know which was best on the market.  Before buying the Waterpik flosser, I read a few reviews on Amazon. The Product actually has over 8,000 reviews as at the time of this post.

There are many reasons why I bought this Waterflosser. However the main reason is that it is easier to use and quite effective. I did not know how useful it would turn out to be but I must say that this has turned out to be one of my best investments in my dental hygiene.

Attention: There is a newer version of the WaterPick water flosser, you may want to check it out on Amazon as well

Why use a Water flosser?

Dentists don’t stop to emphasise how important it is to not only brush one’s teeth twice a day but to also floss regularly as well. They say brusing is great but no matter how much you brush you will still be leaving out some areas in your denture that the brush can not reach and thats especially the space between a tooth and the other. If you have ever gone to the dentists for cleaning you would be shocked to see the kind of dirt coming out from the teeth you brushed just a few minutes before the appointment.

Dentist today recommend you even floss with kids and get them to learn the practice early. However I always find the floss really harmful. Each time I tried to use the normal floss, I injure my fragile gum and therefore I find myself not doing it. Until one day when I thought to myself there must be a simpler way to it. And yes, that was when my research started. I am glad I found Waterpik.

What makes the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser so popular?

It is a very versatile Waterflosser

I think it’s really a brilliant idea to use water to floss. Using a toothpick can be dangerous. I am always afraid of poking my gums and really its so difficult to reach all the corners of your mouth. Using the string to floss has never been my style. I was always afraid that I would pull to hard and cut my gum with the string. This Waterpik Water Flosser is excellent for people with braces, implants, crowns, bridges, or periodontal pockets because water is flexible it will get into all the hidden places.  According to WaterPik, water flossing for about a minute a day comfortably removes up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas as it gently massages the gums to improve overall oral health. They also claim that Waterpik Water Flossers are the only brand clinically proven to be up to 50% more effective than traditional dental floss and up to 80% more effective than Sonicare Air Floss for improving gum health.

From my experience in the last 2 years, the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser has really helped to improve my oral health. Every night when I use it and most mornings, I feel that my teeth are so clean and I agree that for me it has been better than the traditional dental floss. However, I am not able to prove that it is 50% more effective, if you are very comfortable with the traditional dental floss then you may not need to spend so much. In my own opinion, I will buy this again.

Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser 10 Step Water Pressure

I am so glad that this waterflosser has steps of pressure. I can only imagine if it had only the first 2 levels of pressure or just the last 2. I find the 7th step most comfortable for me as well as most effective for removing tough particles from the teeth. When I tried to use the 8 – 10th steps, I found it quite painful on the gums while the lower ones were to weak.

There are a few things that has made the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser less than perfect for me. The first is that there is only one copy of the main water flossing tools in the set. This means that you will need to buy more copies if you want to share it with your family.

It’s a little bit too big to carry along while travelling. I travel quite a bit and I have never packed the waterflosser on a trip. I may need to find a smaller water flosser.

It’s not too noisy but it is not as quiet as a traditional dental floss (smile).

Regardless of all these things. I am glad I bought the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser and I look forward to reviewing the new version of it.

How Often Should I use Waterpik Waterflosser?

How Often on a normal condition?

You may wonder how many times do I need to floss in a day. Yes, thats a valid question to ask.

According to the American Dental Association, in order to maintain a good dental health, you should floss at least once a day and brush twice a day.

Do you have Gum or tooth disease?

What if you have a gum disease. Once I discovered my son was beginning to develop a cavity on one of his tooth, and many times food would get cut in there. We started using the waterpik waterflosser after each food or snack. It gave him so much comfort until we got the cavity treated.

So if you have a known disease discuss with your dentist and they may recommend you use you waterflosser more regular than usual.

Do you have Braces or other dental work?

For those with braces, implants, bridges, crowns or any other dental work that is hard to keep clean, I will suggest you  use your Water Flosser more than once per day. You may even consider buying a cordless model to go with you when you are away from home.
