Top 10 Shavers
I’m always being asked what my top 10 best electric shavers are, and it’s never an easy question to answer. The problem is there are so many variables involved and, as with any top 10 list, there will be a huge amount of subjectivity in the choices made. With that said, here’s my top 10 best electric shavers, but please remember that this is only my opinion, so your mileage may vary
So without further ado…..
My Top 10 Best Electric Shavers
#1. Panasonic Arc 5 ES-LV81-K
This shaver has everything you could want in a shaver, and is a real no-brainer for the number one slot. It will provide you with the closest shave possible. It is not cheap by any means, in fact it is one of the most expensive shavers on the market, but it does offer incredible value for money.
#2. Philips Norelco 1290x/40 SensoTouch 3D
This is a great looking shaver that is as easy on the eye as it is to use. Like the LV81 above, it is a top-end shaver with a price to match, but its functionality and performance helps you look past the price quite easily. The Norelco 1290x has the lightest touch of all the electric shavers I’ve ever tried due to the flexibility of its shaving heads.
#3. Braun Series 7-790cc Pulsonic
I like the Braun 7 Series because it has a great feel of quality about it. Braun have always been known for their technological advancements, and the 790cc is at the top of the technology tree as far as Braun is concerned. They have endowed it with lots of state of the art gizmos such as super fast charging, multifunctional Clean and Renew System, three personalized mode settings, and an advanced LCD display indicator.
#4. Philips Norelco 1280X/42 SensoTouch
The Philips Norelco 1280x/42 is one of my real favorite shavers. I love the look of this shaver and it has a really great feel about it due to its design and sleek shape. Philips Norelco have really nailed the close shave with their triple-headed rotary shaving heads – you just get the feeling the the shaver is working hard on your beard.
#5. Panasonic ES-LV-61A Arc 5
The only reason the Panasonic ES-LV61A is down at number five on my top 10 best electric shavers list is because of its similarity to the ES-LV81A (See #1 above). This is a great shaver and if it wasn’t for the current #1, this shaver would easily be fighting for the top spot. This shaver is almost identical to the shaver at number one.
#6. Panasonic ES-LA93-K
Panasonic shavers feature highly in my top 10 list, and there’s a very good reason for that – Consistently they make great shavers! You might read on some sites that this shaver has been surpassed by the 5 blade models in terms of technology, but don’t let that sway you. Overall, this shaver offers fantastic value for your money.
#7. Philips Norelco 7800XLCC
With so many great electric shavers available to buy it’s a tough call choosing a top ten, especially when it comes to the last few spaces. The 7800XLCC more than deserves it spot at number seven though because of the consistent quality of shave it offers time after time. Unlike some electric shavers, this Norelco just never seems to blunt its blades.
#8. Braun Series 5-560
I like this shaver because it is a solid no-nonsense unit that will never let you down. I had a series 5 shaver for almost 3 years and in that time it gave me nothing but quality service day after day. It could be fully charged in less than an hour, which made it great for using at home, and its compact design was ideal for when I was on vacation.
#9. Panasonic ES-8243-A
The stand out feature of the Panasonic ES-8243-A is the large chunky shaving head which means you get to remove much more beard in much less time. I like the wet dry feature that gives you the option of using a gel or a foam to minimize irritation. This is a very competent electric shaver that doesn’t cost a fortune to either buy or maintain.
#10. Remington DA307
The final shaver in my top ten list is the Remington DA307. I love the quirkiness of this unit, it is small, stylish, packs a real punch. You won’t find all the bells and whistles that are common on the more expensive shavers, but you won’t pay their inflated prices either. The Remington can’t compete in terms of features, but it’s a great no-nonsense shaver at a very cheap price.
