This foil shaver earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it produced the closest, most comfortable shave. The Best model’s foils generate subtle vibrations that lift hair follicles and enable the five blades (the most in the industry) to cut below the skin, leading panelists to say it provided, “an extraordinary close shave” and cut as close as “a barber’s straight razor.” Unlike lesser shavers that required “several more passes along the jawbone,” The Best model reached “every nook and cranny without a problem.” While other shavers produced excessive noise and caused skin irritation, The Best model generated a gentle whir and cut hairs without pulling or nicking the skin, leading one panelist to say it was “the most comfortable electric razor I have ever used.” The waterproof shaver can be used in the shower, its base automatically cleans and dries the head, and provides up to 15 three-minute shaves after a one-hour charge. Includes one cleaning cartridge. 6 1/4" H x 2 3/4" W x 2" D. (7 oz.)
“Very close shave without going back over and over areas already done.”- J, Colorado

Only had it a few days
Only had it a few days but it lives up to all good things said about it. Never had an electric shaver that could be used wet(with soap or shaving cream);it takes getting used to. The comment with it that it should be used for a month before really judging is sound advice. One's beard adapts to certain shaving patterns and those patterns have to be changed with a new razor of any kind. In the few days I've had it, it is apparent that it does better wet. The final result is as stated: extremely close and smooth. Wonderful. I can see that certain areas of face will take longer to adjust to the razor and how I use it, but am making progress. What is appealing is that one can simply wet face and run a bar of favorite soap over it, work up a slight lather and shave. The cream facilitates the slide of the razor. Dry, it seems to not operate as smoothly; depends on condition of skin, I suppose, in terms of friction between face and razor. Overall it is a pleasant, interesting, personal grooming experience. The cleaning unit works very well, though perhaps a bit noisy. Traveling, one can easily use hot water, running razor under it with top removed.

I have only had this shaver for about a week, but it does a great job. One hassle is it must be stored in a room other than a bathroom to avoid a humid environment. Otherwise though it can be used in the shower, wet or dry it works great. The shave is much closer and easier than a razor. It makes it easy to shave everyday and now shaving is something I enjoy. The shaver is very expensive, but in my opinion well worth it. Shaver provides the best shave I have ever had. Every professional man should have this item. It is a real time saver.

Used with Dr Bronner's organic shaving gel in shower. No longer need a mirror, nor is feeling for whiskers necessary. Faster, much smoother. Three shaves was enough to figure out that a sufficient pressure, not heavy pressure, with multiple passes in appropriate directions, is best.

I had the previous model of this razor and loved it. When I upgraded I couldn't believe it was even better. This is, without a doubt, the best electric razor I have ever used in sixty years of shaving with electric razors.

Clean as a Laser Razor

Never looked forward to shaving, until now.
By VA Gent
from Richmond, VA
I recently decided to get rid of my full beard after fifteen years, and my old electric razor gave out about a week later. This razor is so comfortable and easy to use I can't believe it. Now I actually look forward to shaving, something I have always hated to do.

This is my 4th shaver in the Panasonic series and is far and away the best ever. Very close shave without going back over and over areas already done. Quieter and also easier to clean with the redesigned head

My husband says this is the best shaver he has ever used. It shaves as close as a blade without the nicks. It charges up fast, and is lightweight. I am happy that I ordered this for him and would do it again.
