Foot Pedi Comparison Review: Emjoi Micro Pedi Vs. Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry Rechargeable

If you are tired of dry, unattractive soles on your feet then you’ll want to keep reading.

I love having soft, touchable feet, so I use foot pedi’s to help me keep up with my foot maintenance. I own two of the leading names in foot pedi tools which I use regularly to pamper my feet. I have a comparison review to share with you on the Emjoi Micro Pedi foot file and the Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry Rechargeable foot file to help you decide which one to get.

Up until last year I was always fighting with dry skin on the heels and balls of my feet. It didn’t seem to matter how much moisturizing lotions and creams I would apply each day, I was always losing the battle. My feet produce more dry skin than the average person. I’ve applied lotion to my feet and wore socks to bed, but that only slightly improved my heels. I even owned one of those egg type file pedi units, unfortunately they just chewed up my feet so they looked jagged, felt rough to the touch and they even got caught up on the insides of my socks. What a big mistake to use cutting type files for obtaining soft, smooth feet.

After reading countless reviews and checking out their results, I knew I wanted to get myself an electric foot file. So I used my Swagbucks rewards money and I purchased an Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry Cordless Foot Pedi off of for free! Then as Murphy’s Law has it, I also won the Emjoi Micro Pedi just 1 day after ordering my Amope Pedi Perfect. Both foot file units arrived at roughly the same time, so there was definitely no excuse for me to have dry, rough feet anymore.

Here is my comparison review of the Emjoi Foot Pedi vs. the Amope Foot Pedi:

Emjoi Micro Pedi Foot File

Emjoi Micro Pedi is a foot file unit that is designed to be used in the comfort of your home to file away hard and rough skin on your feet, leaving you with soft feet that are touchably smooth. It offers 360 degree rotation 30 times per second.

Initially I was afraid the process would hurt because of the speed of the rotations. I thought the Emjoi foot file would be worse than a pumice stone (they can create sore spots on my feet due to the repetitive rubbing); but I was very wrong. The Emjoi Micro Pedi filing does not hurt what-so-ever! However, if you notice some discomfort then you may be filing too long in one spot; just move on to another spot.

It only took minutes to refresh and renew the soles of my feet to a softer, smoother and younger looking state. It’s amazing and kind of gross, the amount of dry dead skin that comes off with just one foot filing session. With continued use, my feet have never looked or felt better.

Emjoi Micro Pedi Pros

  • It is lightweight and easy to handle
  • The cordless design makes it portable
  • Easy to bring with you while travelling
  • No conversion plugs needed for travel
  • Has two different filing wheels one coarse and one fine included in the package
  • Easy to take filing roller off unit for cleaning
  • Better at fine filing than Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry
  • Unit is priced better than Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry
  • Replacement roller files priced better than Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry

Emjoi Micro Pedi Cons

  • Requires the use of batteries (2 AA’s)
  • The batteries run out quickly for me, generally less than 2 complete foot filing sessions (this will obviously vary by the amount of filing required)
  • There is only one speed for this pedi unit
  • Less powerful than the Amope Pedi Perfect
  • Replacement heads are not as readily available as Amope Pedi Perfect brand

Cost: Varies by retailer, starting at $33.99

Where it’s sold: Shoppers Drug Mart, Emjoi, (lowest price – at post time), Costco Canada

Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry Rechargeable foot file

Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry Rechargeable is a foot file to use at home to file away dead, rough skin from your feet. It is cordless, rechargeable and it can be used dry or wet. So you decide if you want to do it before the shower, during your shower or afterwards.

I found the Amope Pedi Perfect to have more power than the Emjoi, which is perfect for filing away the rougher, thicker dry skin. However, despite the power the unit offers; the end result didn’t feel as smooth as the Emjoi Micro Pedi. With the Amope Pedi Perfect having only a coarse filing wheel included, there is room for slight improvement. I’ve searched for a fine roller replacement head but have been unsuccessful thus far.

A single charge lasts around 20 minutes which I find is more than enough time to complete a full foot filing session.

Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry Rechargeable Pros

  • It is comfortable to hold with the ergonomic design
  • It is lightweight and easy to handle
  • It has two filing speeds
  • It is easy to clean
  • Replacement heads are easy to find
  • More powerful than the Emjoi Micro Pedi

Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry Rechargeable Cons

  • Only offers one filing coarseness with the included roller files
  • Corded design reduces it’s portability
  • Easy to bump the unit off the charger
  • Conversion plugs needed for travel
  • Worse at the fine filing than Emjoi Micro Pedi
  • Unit is priced higher than Emjoi Micro Pedi
  • Replacement roller files priced higher than Emjoi Micro Pedi

Cost: Varies by retailer, starting at $59.97

Where it’s sold: Amazon.caWalmart Canada

Smooth, beautiful feet is definitely an attainable feat (or feet if you wish), especially with the tools available on the market today.

I love both of my pedi foot files, but each is superior at one job. The Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry Rechargeable is better at the coarse filing of dry, rough skin; whereas the Emjoi Micro Pedi does a better job at the fine filing to smooth out the job. I personally like to use both units each time I pamper my feet to get the desired results that I’m after. This is just my preference and is certainly not necessary to have both units as each will do a great job of smoothing out the rough dry skin on your feet.

    Quite interesting to reach such a review of two brands of products. You did a good job of writing and review each and then making your statement on preference or non-preference.

    This is going to sound crazy but I bought one of these a couple of years ago and I forgot I had it until seeing this post, so I’ll have to dig it out from its hiding place. Thanks

    I have the Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry too and I use it usually after having a foot bath.I like the results that I get.I found it was a little pricey too but it does a great job.

    I have both and prefer the Amope Pedi for the stronger power.

    I rec’d my emjoi micro pedi, battery operated, as a gift less than 2 years ago. I found I needed the coarser rollers and wound up buying 2 for about $20. A month later the unit stopped working and I was stuck with unused rollers and batteries. i contacted Emjoi customer service and found them totally unhelpful. Buy a new one they said. It’s as if they were aware of defects in this product and that it would last no more than 2 years no matter how little or often it was used-points to built in obsolescence for their profit. I will never buy this product again!

      Wow, I’m sorry to hear about the issues you had with your Emjoi Micro Pedi. I haven’t personally experienced any problems (knock on wood), but will keep your situation in mind when buying supplies. Thanks for sharing.
