The 10 Best Electric Shavers – Guidebook

A smooth and close shave is appreciated. An easy handling of the razor as well as a pleasant shaving feeling makes the pleasure even greater. Since the selection on the market is very large, we have compared many different electric shavers. Find out here what you need to look for when buying electric shavers and what criteria you can use to recognize good electric shavers.

We have not only compiled a checklist with the most important criteria for electric shavers, but also many product recommendations for you. We will help you choose the right electric shaver.

Electric Razor Checklist

  • First and foremost, you can choose between foil shavers and rotary shavers.
  • Foil shavers usually have an angular shape and are equipped with a perforated foil under which the shaving blades are located.
  • A good foil shaver should have at least three shaving elements.
  • Shaving with a foil razor is considered gentler on the skin and more thorough. In addition, the razors can be cleaned quickly and easily by running water.
  • Rotary shavers, on the other hand, can be recognized by the fact that they have three round shaving elements arranged in a triangular shape.
  • The larger shearing surface ensures that the shave is done much faster. Rotary razors are generally quieter and have less vibration than foil razors.
  • Basically, if you want to shave precise contours and have sensitive skin, a foil razor is the right choice. If, on the other hand, you want to shave every day and do so as quickly and extensively as possible, a rotary razor is the right choice.
  • For a comfortable shave, the razor should adapt to the contours of the face.
  • The flexibility of the shaving head determines how closely it follows the contours.
  • For fine work, a non-moving shaving head offers more control.
  • If you also want to use the razor in the shower, you should make sure that the razor is water resistant. Here you should look for an IP certification.
  • When it comes to battery life, there are stark differences between the models.
  • The battery life should be at least 60 minutes. Since you can not use most shavers in mains operation, you should also look for a fast charging function. 5 minutes charging time is then enough for a complete shave.
  • Many manufacturers save on accessories.
  • In addition to a small cleaning brush, the shaver should definitely have a case for transport.
  • To prevent damage or soiling during transport, an additional protective cap is useful.
