Choosing a suitable electric razor is not an easy task. Online you will find many informative razor tests and can be based on it. We have put together a list of the Best Electric Razor 2019.
There are basically 2 types of electric shavers – foil shavers and rotary shavers. The foil shaver shears the beard, through a swinging foil block in a shaving head. The rotary shaver works with rotating knives in several (usually three) shaving heads.
1. Braun Series 7 790CC – Amazon bestseller in the field of Best Electric Razor 2019
Our first electric shaver comes from the German technology company Braun. The Braun-7-790 series is undoubtedly the most popular razor series ever built by this company. The Model 790cc is the best-selling electric razor ever. It is one of the best electric shavers on the market and # 1 on our list.
The razor provides an amazingly thorough and gentle shave. The 7 790cc Series is very different in its operation from other electric shavers. The case of this electric shaver has three trimmers. Two of them are referred to as “OptiFoil” and the other as “ActiveLift”.
The OptiFoil trimmers help the electric shaver to remove more whiskers in fewer strokes while the ActiveLift helps to cut out the short and ingrown hairs. It is a Pulsonic electric shaver that generates 10,000 micro-vibrations per minute, which allows the shaver to remove more and more hair with each stroke.
The head of the Braun 790cc is very flexible and can move quickly along the facial contour. The shaver comes with an alcohol-based cleaning and charging station that can kill 99% of germs with a single press of a button. In addition, there are 3 adjustment methods available in this advanced electric shaver. Depending on the skin type, you can choose between Normal, Intensive and Extra Sensitive. There is also a pop-up trimmer for trimming beards, mustaches and sideburns.
2. Braun Series 9 9296cc – Best Brown Electric Razor
The next one in our list is also from Braun. It is the latest electric razor series from Braun and our favorite model in this list is Braun 9296CC.
This electric shaver is completely coated with chromed plastic, which makes it look very high quality.
This electric shaver works just as well as the 790cc, the only difference is that the 9296CC has an additional trimmer called “Direct & Cut”. This additional trimmer helps the razor to align the hairs growing in different directions and then cut them off. Otherwise, the ActiveLift Trimmer from 790cc will be replaced by the HyperLift Trimmer, which is a little more advanced and helps remove flat hair as well.
The Braun 9296CC Pulsonic Razor generates 40,000 cuts per minute – please do not confuse it with the 10,000 micro-vibrations of 790cc. It offers a slightly better shave than 790cc, but the difference is just maginal.
The reason why this electric shaver is listed as number 2 is that it is made entirely of plastic, while the 790 has a metal head. Apart from that, he only has one shaving element more and a slightly better face contour fit than the 790. But the price of this electric sorter is much higher.
And last but not least, the Braun 9 9296CC series has all the features of the 790cc, plus the Wet & Dry technology that helps users to use this electric shaver either on dry skin or with shaving gel for sensitive skin.
3. Panasonic ES-LV95 – razor with the best shave result
When it comes to electric razors, Panasonic has made a name for itself. The company supplies some of the best electric razors available in the market. If some may put off the high price of the equipment, Panasonic compensates for this with an excellent quality again. Previously, the ES-LV81 was one of the most popular electric shavers ever, but the much-improved electric shaver ES-LV95 dethroned it.
The Panasonic ES-LV95 is designed for people who want a super clean and close shave. Many say that the manual shave is a lot better, but this electric shaver proves the opposite. When shaving with the ES-LV95 you will notice that the shave is very natural and extremely gentle to the skin. This results after shaving, a skin that feels very smooth when touched. Last but not least, the shaving process with this razor is particularly quick and pleasant to perform.
4. Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D – Best rotary shaver for head and beard
Philips is the leading manufacturer of rotary shavers. No other brand can surpass Philips in this area. The number 4 on our list is the rotary shaver Philips Norelco Sensotouch 3D, which is suitable for both beard and head.
We found this to be the most comfortable rotary shaver, it really sticks to the skin and gently moves around the facial contours, providing an efficient, close shave.
The razor has 3 independent round slides in the shaving head, which stick to the contours of the face and move around them. The swiveling head of the razor helps to reach all the hair and stubble. The slides can rotate, tilt, and move up and down. This is a great feature that helps shave the head. That’s why this is the best electric shaver for bald heads. The shaving head of this razor is called “GyroFlex 3D”, because it can move in 3 dimensions, thus representing a unique selling proposition.
There are other amazing features of this electric razor, Super Lift & Cut, similar to ActiveLift in Brown and Lift-Tech in Panasonic. Supports hair pulling on the neck and lower jaw. It also helps the razor to grasp ingrown hair, stubble and flat hair.
Let’s get to the disadvantages of this razor. The razor impresses with its first-class appearance, but when you pick it up, it does not feel high-quality. Unfortunately, he is just plastic and rubber. The battery is fixed, which means you have no choice but to replace the electric shaver when the battery is out of order.
