About Precise Pedi
Embarrassed by your dry, cracked, callused feet? Looking to get them summer-ready?
Precise Pedi’s motor spins at 3,000 RPM, while its micro-crystal round tip promises to gently, effectively buff away dry, cracked, and callused skin, as well as corns. With Precise Pedi’s cone tip, you’ll also be able to get hard-to-reach areas between your toes, leaving you with softer, smoother, and younger looking feet from toe to heel.
Taken together, unlike many other devices (more about this in a second), Precise Pedi claims to deliver the power and precision you need to target corns and calluses. But is it really a “beauty breakthrough”? That’s exactly what we’ll examine in this review.
What Are Corns & Calluses? Can You Prevent Them?
At their most basic, a callus is thickened skin that the body forms to provide protection in areas that experience greater friction. This is why you’ll typically find them on the feet and palms.
On the other hand, corns can be soft or hard (depending on their thickness) with a central core, and generally occur on the top or sides of fee. Seed corns, though, typically occur on the bottom of the feet, and might be caused by clogged sweat ducts.
In either instance, the easiest way to prevent calluses and corns is to wear proper-fitting footwear, as well as gloves when performing manual labor. However, the reality is that if you do much of anything, you’re bound to eventually form a corn or callus or three.
Since you’re already experiencing corns and/or calluses, there are dozens of ways to treat them, including salicylic acid preparations, orthotics and cushions to reduce pain, soaking feet in warm water, and more. If you’re also experiencing dry, cracked feet, this can largely be prevented by making sure your feet are properly moisturized.

Precise Pedi vs. Other Pedicure Devices
Based on what we learned from the product’s website, Precise Pedi’s main claim to fame is that it features an interchangeable precision cone tip that allows you to access the narrow area between your toes.
Now, compared to many other electric callus removers like Ped Egg Power and Personal Pedi, whose rollers are cylindrical and held in place on each side, Precise Pedi’s micro-crystal tips are sphere-shaped and located at the very tip of the device. Does one design work better than another?
We didn’t perform a side-by-side comparison, but which one works better for you largely depends on your needs and comes down to a matter of personal preference: Do you typically get a lot of calluses between your toes? If so, Precise Pedi might be right up your alley. Or, do you need to remove calluses in more open areas, like the soles of your feet? Then a cylindrical roller might be a better option.
With this said, there are two important takeaways here:
- There are several other manufacturers who make electric callus removers with end-tips like Precise Pedi. So, although you won’t have quite as many options as with devices featuring cylindrical rollers, Precise Pedi isn’t the only game in town.
- Regardless of the design, many other callus removers also feature interchangeable rollers and tips, so Precise Pedi isn’t necessarily unique in this regard, either.
What about from a price perspective?
How Much Does Precise Pedi Cost?
One Precise Pedi costs $19.95 plus free S&H, which includes the rounded and precise tips. Comparatively, much of the competition seems to fall between $10 and $70+.
Precise Pedi comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. In order to request one, you’ll need to call customer service at (973) 227-3486, extension 0.
Who, exactly, will you be calling? Precise Pedi is manufactured by Novel Brands based out of Fairfield, NJ, a relative newcomer to the ASOTV arena who also makes Sensei Slicer, ShinJu Blade, BouDe, and many others.
Whether here on HighYa or elsewhere online, there wasn’t a lot of customer feedback for any of Novel Brands’ products at the time of our research. They did have an A+ Better Business Bureau rating, with just 1 closed complaint that referenced excess S&H charges (as of 6/6/16).
Will Precise Pedi Give You Salon Quality Results?
Will an electric callus remover like Precise Pedi work for you? Again, we didn’t test the device directly, but if you need something that’s able to remove a relatively thin callus, corn, or dry spot, battery powered options will probably work just fine. After all, they’ve been around for years because most customers find that they work at least reasonably well.
However, one of the biggest customer complaints related to products like these is that they’re underpowered, and that with even a little too much pressure, the tip quickly stops spinning. So, if you’ve got some thicker corns and calluses to address, you might need to visit a salon for some good ol’ fashioned elbow grease.
The good news is that, unlike most other ASOTV products (whether from Novel Brands or another company), Precise Pedi comes with free shipping. This way, if you give the device a try and aren’t satisfied, you can take advantage of the 30-day money back guarantee, and you’ll only be out a few dollars sending it back to the manufacturer.
Want to avoid losing any of your hard-earned money in S&H charges? Remember, electric callus removers are extraordinarily popular, so you’ll almost certainly be able to find several options at local retailers. Then, if you’re dissatisfied, processing a return could be as easy as hopping in your car.
