That’s not an easy question to answer because it depends on many factors. What is the perfect electric razor for one person may be totally unsuitable for someone else and this could be due to differing skin types, having soft or hard whiskers or desiring a different closeness of shave.
However, there are two very important factors that need to be considered – features and price. Modern electric shavers have a wide variety of features, some of which may or may not be deemed necessary to everyone, depending on your expectations. Of-course, the more advanced features usually add to the cost of the razor.
Which are the best men’s electric razors?
There are numerous different brands of electric razors including Panasonic, Braun, Sunbeam, Remington and Philips to name a few. After some research into the wide range of men’s electric shavers available, I have found three that really stand out above the rest. They are:
* Philips Norelco Arcitec 1090;
* Braun Series 7-790cc Pulsonic Shaver and
* Panasonic ES8249K Arc IV Nano Vortex.
Let’s look at some of the features of these three electric razors.
1. Philips Norelco Arcitec 1090 Men’s Shaving System
If you like high tech design, then this Norelco electric razor is for you. It is one of the coolest looking shavers on the market. It is a rotary head shaver that has the ability to conform to the contours of your face to give you a very close shave. It also comes with a 60 day money back guarantee for peace of mind.
2. Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver
These braun electric razors are also high tech but in a different way. It produces several thousand “micro vibrations” per minute which help to lift the hairs for easy cutting. The Braun also uses very advanced blade technology which minimises any tugging and pulling of the whiskers and also gives a very close shave. A really cool feature is that with the press of a button the shaver will automatically clean and lubricate itself.
3. Panasonic ES8249K Arc IV Nano Vortex
Unlike the other two, this Panasonic electric shaver can be used as a wet or dry shaver. You should consider this shaver if you shave in the shower, for instance. The Panasonic has a very powerful motor and with its extremely sharp blades that are set at the smallest angle of any razor available today so not only do you get a very close shave but it makes light work out of shaving a thick beard.
Naturally, these features are going to reflect in the prices of these electric razors but if price is not an issue and you want the features then any of these would be more than suitable.
Best Value Men’s Electric Razor
But if price is an issue, let’s find a shaver that has a low price but gives excellent value for the dollars spent. To ascertain this I went through many electric shaver reviews and found the shaver that had more positive customer reviews than any other. The one that stood out was one manufactured by Braun. It is their PocketGo P-70 Men’s Electric Shaver with a current retail price of around $30.00. Strictly speaking this shaver is aimed at the traveller and may not be suitable for everyday shaving. It is powered by a couple of AA batteries so it can be used anywhere including your office and even the car. Although it doesn’t have the bells and whistles of the more expensive shavers, it is extremely portable and does give quite a close shave.
Like anything, it’s most important that you decide which features you need in a shaver and then look for the best value men’s electric shaver that will fit that need.
