With a large number of electric shavers on the market, it can be confusing to determine which ones are the best. Most men want an electric shaver to give them a close shave in little time, since no one wants to spend a half hour shaving or to have to turn around and shave with a blade razor after taking the time to use an electric.
Consumer Reports rates the Braun Series 7 760 cc foil shaver as the all-around best electric shaver on the market. Most tests show that foil shavers like the Braun 7 760 cc are preferred for the closest shave. This shaver is also relatively quiet, and the ?Power Comb? feature raises hair for a smoother shave. The Braun also offers a two-year warranty, and a 30-day money back offer. The average price of this shaver is $240.00.
Men who do not shave as often, or who naturally grow hair faster may prefer rotary electric shavers. The Norelco Arcitec line is very quiet. The 1090x has pivot and flex technology to reach difficult places, and the triple-track head hugs the curves on your face. In addition, the Norelco 8169XLCC Speed-XL Shave has a reflex action system for a smoother shave. The ?Jet Clean and Charge System? automatically charges and cleans the razor. The average cost of the Norelco line is $110.00.
Another category of electric shavers are the wet/dry foil shavers. These can be used in the shower or with shaving cream or gel. The Panasonic ES 8077S is the best rated electric shaver in this category. The ES 8077S also comes with a pop-up trimmer, and a clean-and-charge base. The primary reason men choose wet/dry foil shavers over blade razors is that they can?t get nicked or cut. For the men who still prefer shaving in the shower or with a type of lotion or cream, the ES 8077S is the best choice. These shavers retail for about $100.00.
In the budget electric shaver category, two stand out from the rest. These are the Braun Series 1 190, a budget foil electric shaver, and the Norelco Moisturizing Shaving System, a budget rotary shaver. Although neither of these rate as high as their more expensive counterparts, these electric shavers still do a remarkable job at giving a close shave. The Braun 1 uses a single strand of foil that floats, and a slide-up system for the trimmer as the technology for a closer shave. On the Norelco Moisturizing Shaving System, shaving lotion comes out of the holes located at the center of the two top rotator heads. Neither of these models have a cleaning base, both also take more time to charge, and they do not last as long between charges as more expensive models. Both of these electric shavers have warranties, and the price range is from $40.00 to $100.00.
No matter what budget you have, the Braun Series 7 760, Norelco Arcitec line, Norelco 8160XLCC Speed-SL Shave, Panosonic ES 8077S, Braun Series 1 190, and the Norelco Moisturizing Shaving System are all top rated in their categories. For the closest shave, the Braun Series 7 760 foil shaver is still the best, but all of these models will give the user a great shave.
