Product Description

Research shows that germs can remain and breed on wet toothbrushes after brushing, potentially prolonging infections such as gum disease or sore throats. And, because airborne bacteria can move from toothbrush to toothbrush (and from other sources in the bathroom), opportunistic infections, like periodontal disease and common colds/flu, can easily be passed from one person to another when unsanitized toothbrushes are stored together. The Germ Terminator Toothbrush Sanitizer provides a clean, healthy toothbrush every time you brush your teeth. The Germ Terminator is the only toothbrush sanitizer to use natural steam and dry heat to kill greater than 99.9999% of germs on your toothbrush and store it in a completely germ-free environment between brushings. The Germ Terminator works with electric and manual toothbrushes. The product is FDA-cleared (510k-clearance) and is modeled after the steam device in dental offices to sterilize instruments. It can be used worldwide with the proper plug adapter (100-240V). UL Listed, Worldwide Safety Certifications.

I really like the premise behind these units, and I have already owned 4 of them. The problem is, though, they are not built to withstand the high heat generated. The plastic toothbrush holders will actually melt off and crack over time from the heat. The bottom of the unit will develop leaks. Also, regardless of how well you clean your toothbrush, there is still toothpaste residue on it, and this will cause a powdery build up in the unit that is difficult and time consuming to remove.
We use only distilled water in ours and clean regularly but still can't seem to get more than a year out of it. One lasted around eight months. The warranty is only 90 days, so it's essentially useless. We keep buying, though, because until its inevitable demise it does sterilize the brushes and keep them dry and covered, and there's nothing better out there. Consider the money spent on it an annual expense. The UV ones have their own issues, and the ozone generating ones are usually built cheaply as well.

I hate to leave such a low rating, because the correct model IS fantastic. I have one that I have had for years... I take good care of it, use distilled water, and it still works just great. Unfortunately, I have ordered countless units from Amazon over the last year or so, and keep receiving a model that the Germ Terminator company warns customers against. The one pictured would be great... if I received that one. The one with the toothbrushes facing 'bristles up', in the gold/yellow basket is the 'safe' model that functions properly. Those I keep receiving though, are a model that show (on the box) toothbrushes upside-down, in a white basket. The Germ Terminator company claims all of these units are unsafe and were to be destroyed... but they were somehow taken from the warehouse they were being held in, and have been on the market ever since.

I tried to chat with someone from Amazon, hoping to find out if there is any way to have someone in the fulfullment warehouse CHECK to see which model is actually being shipped, and was told that they couldn't, but that the chat transcript would be forwarded on to 'address the issue'. I was also told to leave feedback here, and that it would be 'corrected' within a week.

Again, the photo currently being shown APPEARS to be correct... but this photo was also shown last time I ordered, and I still received the 'other' units. At that time, I wasn't aware of the safety issue (units getting too hot). The problem I would have with them was the almost immediate build-up of yellow 'gunk' that was impossible to keep clean, so I would just throw the unit away after a couple of months, and get another one. When I found out that those units should have been destroyed, and can become overheated, I was shocked. So, AMAZON... somehow, PLEASE find out if the units you are selling are the UNSAFE models that were meant to be destroyed!!

This one really works. I used to get sore throats when using a non-sterilized toothbrush. Used to re-infect myself with colds and bacterial infections. For longest time, had multiple (20-30) toothbrushes and sterilized in top rack basket in dishwasher with water heater on high temp. That worked but time consuming.

Now use Germ Terminator -- just as effective but takes less time and less water and less energy. For best results, use distilled water, but you can use tap too. If you use tap regularly you will need to watch for calcium build up like in coffee maker and run vinegar through it to get rid of calcium build up. I am able to sterilize my Braun electric toothbrush heads (which cost $10 each!) in this unit too besides regular toothbrushes. They fit in the little baskets.

This unit is very light so it will be good for traveling even though footprint not as small as UV travel sanitizers.

I love my steam sterilizer. I am going to buy a second one for traveling.

Why should you buy this unit instead of UV light sterilizer/sanitizer?

Most toothbrush sterilizers are UV light based. I did research on steam versus UV sterilization:

UV light is non-ionizing radiation. Good for destroying airborne organisms and organisms on exposed surfaces that UV light makes contact with. UV light has low penetrating power. Dust, soil, anything that shields organism from UV light will protect micro organism from sterilization. Must keep UV light bulb very clean (dust/soil on UV light will reduce effectiveness). Must regularly test UV light because they lose power to sterilize over time. Sterilization percentage for UV light: 99.95%. Sterilization percentage for Germ Terminator (tested results): 99.999999%

UV light causes sunburns.

I have had my Germ Terminator for 2 years and I can't imagin life without it. I am in the health care field and know the importance of preventing microbial contamination whenever possible. Even though it is not considered portable, I travel a great deal and never leave home without it tucked away in my suitcase. It does require a small effort to clean, but small is the operative word. Anyone who cares about keeping themselves and their families healthy would do well to keep a Germ Terminator in every bathroom. Also, you can sterilize other items that will fit in the basket and are not harmed by steam. I routinely sterilize the end of my Water Pik and other assorted dental hygine items before each use. Also, pierced earring that are all metal. I find it indispensable.
