Flaus may be one of the best electric flossers out there.
We absolutely love the shape and aesthetics of Flaus. The color is spot on as well.
The company offers a lengthy 2 year warranty and some nice accessories. Like a magnetic mirror mount.
We really like how they thought many things through. Like the ability to use the electric flosser in the shower.
For those who like slightly “smarter” devices, this may be the best reusable flosser for you…
As it has habit-tracking features.
Where is Flaus made?
According to information posted on Kickstarter, Flaus appears to be manufactured in China.
“…the manufacturing process that demands iterative rounds of tooling revisions for constant improvement has simply taken longer than it would have…Our goal had been to complete four total rounds of tooling improvements before shipping out all orders by year-end before Chinese New Year begins (a ~2-month holiday where virtually all manufacturing/supply chain operators shut down and remain closed through January and February)…”
- Cool accessories, like a magnetic mount
- Has a built-in habit tracker

The Slate electric flosser is advertised as a 3-in-1 kind of tool. Yes, it can floss your teeth. But it can also act as a tongue scraper.
However, we’re not exactly sure what the third function is. Based on the pictures and description…
Maybe it acts as a gum cleaner or gum massager of sorts as well?
That aside, it’s a beautifully designed tool created by a dentist.
The replacement heads can be used more than once although no information on whether that’s hygienic or not is provided as of yet.
Where is Slate made?
Based on update #3 on Kickstarter, it appears that Slate is manufactured in the Philippines.
“We have been finalizing the packaging with the factory in the Philippines.”

Other power flossers were once out on the market. This includes Oral-B’s Hummingbird electric flosser.
If it’s still for sale, it appears that the supply is erratic at best.
Spare parts like attachment heads appear non-existent or very expensive now that it’s supposedly off the market.
This means a lot of people are forced to trash an otherwise perfectly functional device.
That’s really unfortunately for our planet.
This same fate befell users of the Hammacher Schlemmer sonic flosser.
The Cybersonic power flosser isn’t a standalone flossing unit…
So we’re keeping its description brief.
You’ll have to pay for an entire “system” composed of a battery-powered handle and attachment heads (toothbrush and flosser).
The cost of the replacement heads can add up over time.
