It is actually difficult for us to understand how there are still people who take their jewelry to a specialized shop for cleaning.
The prices of ultrasonic cleaners have come down so much that, today, you can afford to buy one for yourself with the money that you would otherwise be spending to have your jewelry cleaned just once.
Best Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaners of 2020
The basic principle behind any cleaner is the fact that ultrasonic vibrations create microscopic particles of air that burst when they come in contact with your jewelry.
Those bursting particles create vortexes that pull away any type of dirt that may be on your jewelry. Because the working principle is so simple there are virtually dozens of such cleaners but we have taken a look ourselves and have chosen for you the top 10 best ultrasonic jewelry cleaners of .
Above, you have a table to give you a quick idea of what are the best products to use today, and right after it, you will find our in-depth analysis for each one of them.
1. Sonic Wave Professional Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner
The advantage of ultrasonic technology is that it does not require any special soaps to work. In fact, you can even use simple tap water. Still, water is not exactly the best medium to create and use the microparticles of air and that is why the Sonic Wave ultrasonic cleaner comes with its own specialized liquid.
After it is done you can either buy some more liquid or you can simply use water. The Sonic Wave is also one of the cheapest products of its kind and yet also the best because it does exactly what it is supposed to, and requires no special attention.
It even shuts down automatically after 3 minutes so your more delicate jewelry will not be endangered.
2. DB-Tech Ultra Sonic Jewelry Cleaner
The DB-Tech Ultra Sonic cleaner was a close contender for the best ultrasonic jewelry cleaner spot, but we ended up calling it our second favorite because it is that little bit more expensive than the Sonic Wave.
It also comes with its own specialized liquid but you can also use water for an impressively clean finish. It also works on a 3 minutes cycle and has an auto-off function to protect your jewelry.
The other important thing to know is that the DB-Tech received a 4.5-star rating on Amazon from 57 happy customers, which is quite impressive considering that the more people use a product the bigger are the chances that someone will find something to be dissatisfied with.
3. Ivation IVUC96S Digital Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner
The Ivation actually scored the highest Amazon rating on our list of products, receiving 4.7 stars. But this rating was awarded from only 32 customers, which, although impressive, is not as impressive as the 57 customers that returned to rate the DB-Tech or the 144 that rated the Sonic Wave.
The thing that we love most about the Ivation is the fact that it has 5 different cleaning cycles, each lasting from just 90 seconds, all the way up to 8 minutes.
Of course, this makes the Ivation a slightly more dangerous tool to use because you have to be certain of what cycle to use, but it also makes it a more effective cleaning machine.
4. Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner By Bogue Systems
If you ever took your jewelry to a professional cleaner in the 80s or the 90s, chances are they were cleaned with a Boque Systems machine. The Boque System ultrasonic cleaners were one of the first of their kind to come out on the market.
Since then, we are sorry to report, the quality of their products has not improved as much as we would have hoped. That is why we decided to feature them on our top 10 best ultrasonic jewelry cleaners of the list, but are not calling them our favorite.
5. Generic CD-3800 Digital Ultrasonic Cleaner
The New Trent Generic cleaner is one of our favorite ultrasonic jewelry cleaners because it is one of the cheapest you will find, but also one of the more complex ones too. It has 5 preset cleaning cycles so for sturdier, yet dirtier jewelry, such as watches, it works perfectly.
The only problem is that, although almost 200 people used it and were pleased enough to give it a 5 star Amazon rating, in almost 40 other cases it broke relatively soon after it was bought.
So, although we were pleased with the operating of the Generic CD-3800, you should buy it under the motto “Buyer, beware!”
6. DB-Tech Digital Ultra Sonic Jewelry Cleaner
If you are willing to pay that little bit extra for a machine that we have vetted to work perfectly, and to also get the benefit of the 5 preset cleaning cycles, then the DB-Tech Digital Ultra Sonic Cleaner is the right answer for you.
It comes with the same 17-ounce cleaning tank as the DB-Tech cleaner we have already talked about comes with. In the box, you will also find the Blitz jewelry cleaner that works somewhat better than water to clean your jewels.
The only difference is that with the DB-Tech Digital you also get the option to program in the length of the washing cycle you would like to use.
7. Bogue Systems Professional Grade Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner
Making a list of the best ultrasonic jewelry cleaners of we have come to realize that most of these cleaners use the same basic technology.
So what makes the difference between one product or the other, that is when taking into consideration only those that we know are of the best manufacturing quality, the accessories that come in the box with the cleaner are as important as the machine itself.
That is why we decided to highlight for you the Bogue Systems professional-grade cleaner. It comes with the same machine as the one we have already talked about but you also get 2 bottles of the Blitz gem and jewelry cleaner.
8. Ultrasonic Jewelry Eyeglass and Lens Cleaner
The most important thing to be said about the Ultrasonic Jewelry cleaner by Ultrasonic is that it was the cheapest cleaner we could find that still had an adequate level of manufacturing quality.
It is a very basic machine, with just the 3 minutes auto stop cycle and it does not come with its own cleaning liquid. However, it works just fine with water and, as long as you do not plan to use it on a day to day basis, it should last for several years.
9. Ivation IVUC96W Digital Ultrasonic Cleaner
The only real difference between the Ivation IVUC96W and the Ivation IVUC96S is that this one comes in white, while the one we featured above comes in silver.
Still, it received the same 4.7 stars rating on Amazon and we thought that was a good enough reason to feature it once again here.
10. Rayn Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner – Model 24
The Rayn Ultrasonic Cleaner is one of the most expensive ultrasonic cleaners we could find on the market that did have something interesting enough about it to be worth the money. The Rayn has the most futuristic look we have ever seen and we believe that alone may be enough for some people the extra money you would have to pay for it.
We would not buy it ourselves but, if you are the type of person that would go for something like this, we would totally understand your choice.
