What can we tell from this?

Overall, the Sonicare Essence has a decent average grade of 3,49 / 5, but with one point that’s really driving scores down. “Mold”. The data seems to point to some flaw in the construction that lets in water and makes mold grow in the toothbrush. It is not mentioned especially often, but often enough for it to considerably lower the average grade of the product.

A topic that is carrying this product is “price”, which has a considerable positive effect on reviews that mention it.
