Finding the best at home foot spa quickly becomes an overwhelming task, as I discovered when I started writing this guide. There are many options available, many of which seem to be basically junk. So how do you start finding the gems available in 2016 amidst all the cheap junk without spending a fortune? Well, I’ve done a lot of the work for you with this helpful comparison chart.
What could be more relaxing than soaking your feet in a nice foot spa bath after a long day of working or taking care of your children? But where do you start?
I’ve read through the reviews, and figured out which features actually matter, and which are just hype and don’t live up to your expectations. My comparison chart will help you find the best option for your budget and your unique needs. A detailed explanation of all columns in this table is located below. Sort by price, by features, or by reviews from real customers.

Best At Home Foot Spa Comparison Chart Details
A few words of explanation about the chart:
The images and product titles are links to Amazon.com. Most of these are probably available elsewhere, but in my experience, Amazon usually has the best selection, price, and by far the best reviews.
Brand is self-explanatory. It’s included here so you can sort the comparison chart by brand and compare multiple products from the same company.
Heat refers to whether or not this particular at home foot spa claims to offer heat. I’ve looked through the reviews of each product, and it’s clear that not every one lives up to its claims. So, if it doesn’t claim to offer heat, I’ve marked it as “No.” If it seems to provide decent heat, I’ve put “Yes.” And, for the many that claim to provide heat, but don’t seem to actually do so, and for those that claim to keep warm or hot water at whatever temperature they were when they were filled, but not to actually heat up cold water, I’ve labeled them as “Weak.”
Bubbles is a similar category. Most of these claim to have a bubble feature, but it’s clear from reviews that many of them added this only as an afterthought. If reviewers didn’t like the bubbles, I’ve again put “Weak.”
Massage is a bit complicated. Some foot spas have a full-blown powered massage feature, which I’ve labeled as “Powered.” Most have at least a textured base that you can rub your own feet across, which I’ve labeled as “Passive.” A few might have none, which of course I’ve appropriately labeled as “None.” Some are more complicated, and have something like a spinning protrusion in the middle, or something similar, which I’ve tried to briefly label accordingly.
Perhaps the most important category, price uses dollar signs to represent the approximate list price range of the product. Of course, prices may vary at any time, or there may be discounts or sales, so you’ll need to look at a store for an exact price.
- $ = $30 and below – the really cheap stuff
- $$ = $30 to $75
- $$$ = $75 to $150
- $$$$ = $150 and above
Finally, rating is my subjective opinion based on features, quality, and the reviews of others. I make no guarantees, so be sure to check out the reviews on Amazon before you by. They have by far the most reviews, and people tend to be pretty honest. Obviously, an A rating is better than a C. In general, you get what you pay for, and my ratings are scaled by price.
Ultimately, choosing the best at home foot spa for you in 2016 is an epic task, and which one is best probably is an ultimately subjective opinion. Use this comparison chart as a starting point to find which spas have the features you want. Then, click on one of the links and read through some of the reviews before making your decision. Enjoy relaxing your feet!
