The Best Electric Shaver For Men

Philips Norelco Multigroom Pro

So what’s the best electric shaver for men? With so many different brands and styles out there, it’s sometimes a bit of a headache trying to decide which one is right for you.  We’ve separated the list into two separate blade-type categories foil and rotary. The best blade-type for you depends on the length of your hair, its thickness and sensitivity of your skin. Here are some of our picks for the best electric razors on the market today.

Best Foil Electric Shavers

1.  Panasonic Travel Shaver
If you are looking for something simple, I definitely recommend the Panasonic Travel Shaver.  This little guy won’t usually run you more than $15, and it’ll cover all your basic shaving needs.

4.  Philips Norelco SensoTouch 2D Electric Razor with Clean and Charge with Jet Clean System
While this shaver is a little more expensive than some others listed here, its high tech functions may make it worth the money.  It’s “Aquatech” lubrication features advertise that the razor can be used without shaving cream.  You may want to be cautious about this, but it is definitely something to consider.  It also includes two dimensional contouring (shaving at any possible angle) for an extremely close shave.

5.  Remington Men’s Corded Rotary Shaver
This is a cheaper option than most here, so if you are looking for a cheaper rotary option I’d go with the Remington Corded.  However, it does not run on batteries, so if you don’t have an outlet near your mirror this is not the razor for you.  Like the others, it includes a pop-up trimmer.

  • You’re right with so many different brands and styles out there it’s not always easy to make a buying decison. Nevertheless I’m a bit surprised to not see one of the Philips SensoTouch 3D rotary shavers and one of the Braun 7 series foil shavers in your best shavers lists.

    These are still too much choices for me (total 10). What’s the best of the best electric shave in your opinion (only 1).

  • Darnel says:

    any suggestions for the best shaver for a black male? I have tried the 760cc and the 7380XL/18 so far, but they don’t work well. Even after 2 days of growth, these shavers can’t handle my beard.

  • Sandra says:

    Hi, I would like to surprise my friend with an electric shaver. He is away a lot for his work so I would like to have a model can recharge without a big standard in order to make it more fit for travel.
    I see you name the Panasonic travel shaver for that, but is that model suited for both a smooth shave and a small (stubble) beard?
