Panasonic EW-DJ10-A Portable Dental Water Flosser Review

So what exactly makes the Panasonic EW-DJ10-A Water Flosser so special?

It’s the dreary task we all love to hate, but at the end of the day (or the beginning of the day if that floats your boat) we all have to floss our teeth at least once a day.

Unfortunately, most people don’t like the good old-fashioned string flossing and they are also not keen on the hassle of a countertop water flosser. So you can see why so many just skip the whole process.

Well, the Panasonic EW-DJ10-A Portable Dental Water Flosser could be the answer to your dental problems (and your laziness to be frank).

This is because it’s travel friendly and lightweight, making it easy to set up and use conveniently.

If you’ve been looking for the best water flosser for travel then look no further. Panasonic EW-DJ10-A is the answer to your water flossing needs.

  • PROS
  • CONS
  • Requires several refills in one session
  • Difficult to replace batteries

Panasonic EW-DJ10-A Water Flosser: Advantages

It’s portable. Did we mention that it is portable? Yes, it’s collapsible so you can put it in your bag or luggage or whatever and use it on your travels.

Forget the inconvenience of a countertop water flosser that you can only use in the comfort of your own home or the messy string flossing. It’s cordless so no need to worry about stepping too far away from the base and dragging the whole unit across your bathroom by accident.

Range of pulse options

The high power-pulse option means it can get into those hard to reach areas to remove the debris or food particles. The lower-speed pulse is ideal for kids or adults whose gums are a little sensitive and need some tender, love and care.

In normal mode, it flosses at 1,400 water pulses per minute helping it to easily reach below the gumline to remove food. While the soft mode is good for massaging the gums and a good starting point for kids.

Cleans dental implants

For those with braces, crowns, veneers, bridges and implants, it’s safe and works like a charm. The reservoir has a water capacity of 5.5-ounces and the device is waterproof.

Easy storage

The tip is protected when the device is collapsed and it is also better designed than some of the older Panasonic models. This water flosser also has an eject button, which makes the removal of the tip pretty easy.

Because it’s so small and compact, it takes only a few minutes to clean and it stores quite easily in a drawer or medicine cabinet if you are using it at home.

Panasonic EW-DJ10-A Water Flosser: Disadvantages

First of all it only has two speeds and the pulsated water stream is never going to be as powerful as that of the countertop versions as it uses two AA batteries. This should not be your primary water flosser, but instead is best used for traveling.

Sometimes it’s a big mission when you have to insert the batteries into the machine as it is difficult to open and close. There is a risk of damaging the cover if you force the issue a bit too much. In fact, when you scroll down to the video below you can see how this could be an issue.

Will need replacement tips

It only comes with one tip so you will have to fork out more cash for replacement heads or if you want more family members to use the product.

Small water reservoir

You may run out of water very quickly which will require you to refill the tank several times while you are a brushing. A drop in the water levels also results in a drop of pressure which is really the primary reason. It can hold 5.5 ounces which isn’t too bad overall, but what is killer is the drop in pressure.

Due to it being so small, it can be difficult to clean the inside as it doesn’t dry out completely, which will lead to mold if you are not careful.

Panasonic EW-DJ10-A Portable Dental Water Flosser Review Summary

It is a very good, compact unit for the price and can easily fit in your bag allowing you to take it wherever you want. But more importantly it does a decent job of getting rid of food particles and debris.

On the downside, you constantly have to refill the water tank and it chews batteries so you constantly have to buy new ones. It’s also not the most powerful, but you are never going to get the same pressure from a device that is operated by batteries and not electricity like the countertop ones.

Overall the Panasonic EW-DJ10-A Water Flosser was designed to be a small, convenient, travel-friendly water flosser. We think it has lived up to its name.
