Does the Pedi Spin work?The Pedi Spin is proof that when one product works there will be other ones that come along to share in its glory. The Ped Egg is one of the most successful products ever developed for foot care, and there has been a slew of imitators to try to capitalize on its popularity. It didn’t take a rocket scientist to come up with the idea to motorize the Ped Egg, and that’s basically what we have here. But does it actually work at removing calluses and dead skin from your feet?

Overview
One complaint people have about the Ped Egg is that while yes it works, it can be a little bit tiring to grate your feet for so long. It definitely would be nice to add some power to the situation, as this would allow you to get the benefits without having to put any elbow grease into it. So the idea is solid, but in the case of the Pedi Spin, they got the follow through all wrong.

The Claim
The Pedi Spin claims that it is an easy and painless way to get smooth and soft feet. They also say that it’s like getting the ultimate foot massage when you use the buffering pad. They claim you can use this any time and anywhere, and that you can use it on your heels, souls, and your toes.

They say that it is guaranteed to be safe and gentle on your skin, so even though it’s motorized it won’t grind into your good skin. They also say that it won’t make a mess, because your shavings will end up inside the head of the unit. All that’s required is to open it up and empty it out when you’re ready.

The Hype
The hype is that this is trying to ride the coattails of successful products in the foot care market, namely the Ped Egg. The infomercial makes it look absolutely incredible, with chunks of calloused skin clumping off of the model’s feet in the video. It’s also highly believable that a motorized pedicure tool would work wonders on your feet.

The Cost
You can get a Pedi Spin for $29 which includes shipping as well as some “free” bonuses. When you compare this to the cost of getting a pedicure in a salon, this would be a one-off purchase rather than a continual charge. In fact, that’s what many people are after when they get products like these, trying to avoid going to the salon and paying high prices to have someone chisel their calluses down.

The Commitment
The whole point of buying this would be to reduce the amount of time it takes you to take care of your feet. If you’re tired of the tedious nature of filing down your rough skin, you would be able to benefit from a tool like this, as it would shorten the amount of time as well as the amount of effort you’d have to put into the task. If it actually worked, that is.

Evaluation
The Pedi Spin is a tremendous letdown. It’s powered by ordinary batteries, and this is their real problem. Rather than equipping it with a lithium ion battery that would provide enough power to work, they’ve made it so that the slightest bit of pressure causes the motor to stop running. Many of these cordless products that use ordinary batteries end up flopping. It’s the cheap way out for the manufacturer, but it usually ends up costing them more in the long run due to fewer sales, higher return rates, and people calling it a scam.

The overall consensus is that this is a piece of junk, and a waste of money. Users have also commented on some of the trickery used in the infomercial, saying that the skin being sloughed off of the feet looks a little suspicious. They must’ve used some sort of special effects in order to make the product look believable on camera, because there hasn’t been a single person out there that has been able to replicate that performance in a real world setting.

It’s also not very easy to use as far as switching out the heads in order to use the buffering pads. In fact, our tester couldn’t figure out how to get the pads onto the head, and there were no instructions included to shed any light on the subject. After trying several different methods, she eventually gave up for fear of breaking the unit.

Final Pedi Spin Review

Although we’d love it if the Pedi Spin worked, we’re sorry to say that it doesn’t. Hopefully another product will come around with the same sort of concept, only with better execution. Even if they had to make a corded unit in order to supply enough power, it would be worth it. The concept is sound, but they opted for a cheaply manufactured piece of plastic, instead of spending a little more on production and seeing a smaller profit margin.

Our Recommendation
Take a pass on this one and stick with your Ped Egg. While it may be tedious and a little tiresome to use, the results you get with it are worth the time and effort. Perhaps one day the Ped Egg company will produce a better powered version, but until then you’ll just have to stick to powering it yourself.

  1. This afternoon, I received the PediSpin two pieces although I ordered one and paid Peso 1,000 one thousand. Whole my family were laughing at me, one of the two does not work at all and the other it work but does not clean anything, and when you put a little pressure, it stops spinning, the battery cover keeps falling and so its a scam and fraud. Can any one advise how to claim our money. We paid for a plastic toy for adults.

  2. Thats exactly what happens IT STOPS! A the battery cover doesn’t stay on! Poorly made meaning cheaply made! I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THE ADDRESS TO SEND IT BACK AND ITS NOT ON PACKAGE IT CAME IN AND THERE WAS NO PAPER WORK THAT CAME WITH IT! If anyone has this info. please send it to my email. Thanks

  3. I found that the Pedi Spin does not work it is a waste of money and I will never purchase anything from this company. I don’t have the package so I probably can’t return it its junk.

  4. My pedi spin does not spin at all from the time i got it, who do i contact to return it

  5. I don have money to spare so on my Birthday, my sister and my partner clubbed together to get me a Pedispin after I said I would like one following the advertisement on TV. I have tried and tried to get the most out of this product and can only conclude that it is the biggest waste of money I have ever spent and to say this was the only Birthday present I had cannot tell you how disappointed I have been. It is a disgrace that the makers of this should be making money out of ordinary people is despicable. I wish I could take it back.

  6. Useless, and as for those who say it works, I firmly believe they must be on the shareholders list.Yes it stops on slightest pressure, no it did not remove the tiniest fragment, using the sandpaper one smoothed but did not remove anything, which is pointless, so does applying creams. Definitely a waste of money, but more importantly our hopes! It’s pretty obvious, that after trying two other brands of this type of product, NONE will be successful-and the money I’ve spent thus far would have been better spent saving toward buying the expensive Scholl.

  7. maybe you need to soak your feet in a solution to soften your skin and make dry skin or calluses easy to remove?

  8. This product is absolutely useless. Don’t waste your money. My feet are actually not too bad an this had no effect on them. I have a manual hard skin file which is much better than this. It is also so loud.
