By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information. While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers. We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely.
We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers. We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly. We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
Oral-B Pro 1000 Electric Toothbrush Tested and Reviewed. The Oral-B Pro 1000 is one of the most popular electrical toothbrushes around. At a tempting price and huge selection of compatible brush heads, the Pro 1000 stands to be incredible value for money. Join us as we explore everything you could possibly want to know about the Oral-B Pro 1000. Our detailed review will help you make the right decision when purchasing your new electric toothbrush. There are two different models of the Oral-B Pro 1000. If you have ever shopped around for an electric toothbrush chances are that the white and blue color scheme of the standard Pro 1000 will be familiar. In early 2016 Oral-B released a new color option, the Oral-B Black Pro 1000. Just be warned that toothpaste marks will show up easier on the surface of the Black Pro 1000 than the blue model. If you were to tear open the box of your brand new Oral-B pro 1000 toothbrush, this is what you would see inside: Let’s break it down: Oral-B Pro 1000 Handle Oral-B CrossAction Toothbrush Head Battery Charger Instruction Manual. You will also find a coupon offering discount on replacement toothbrush heads. Hold onto this because just like a regular toothbrush, you are going to be replacing the heads roughly once every three months. So it goes without saying that the handle is the star of the box. The Oral-B Pro 1000 is incredibly simple to operate. A single power button is located on the front face of the handle. Pressing the button turns your electric toothbrush on or off. The entire blue colored section of the handle is a rubber grip. Whether your fingers are wet or dry, this grip is very sticky. So much so that when I dried the handle with a towel, little pieces of fluff would stick to it. But the rubber grip serves its purpose and allows the toothbrush to be held by even the clumsiest of hands. Further down the face you will find two small indicators. One shaped like a battery and the other like an electric plug. To pit it simply, these are how the electric toothbrush lets you know what’s going on with the battery. You will see how these two indicators work when I cover charging the Oral-B Pro 1000 further down in the review. Speaking of charging… On the base of the handle, you will see a small recess. This is the part of the handle that sits on the charging base.
Printed around the charging hole are the words “Made in Germany”. A welcome change and surprising considering this is one of the cheaper models of Oral-B electric toothbrushes.
Part of the reason for this is that the Oral-B Pro 1000 features Braun branding, a German company who originally developed this range of electric toothbrushes (now owned by Proctor & Gamble).
