Best Electric Shavers of 2017

When you shop, you can ignore all the claims that the product will give you 'The Best Shave Ever' and instead look for a few basic factors that separate good electric shavers from the best electric shavers:

Closeness - As a top-level factor, if the electric shaver doesn't shave close enough you won't be satisfied.
Comfort and Convenience - You're buying this product to make your life easier, not add time to your daily route.
Speed - Look for CMA (cycles per minute) and know that what takes you 10 minutes with a manual blade, should take you 2-3 with an electric razor.
Battery Life - You should expect 50 to 60 minutes of cordless shaving with modern models.
Durability - The longer the electric shaver lasts, the more you can justify the price.

3. ShaveTech

Most electric shavers are now rechargeable so they’re great for use on the move. Some can be used both cordless or from the mains - giving you an extra option if you’ve run out of charge.

There are a host of other features to choose from when buying an electric shaver, so as well as deciding if you prefer a foil or rotary model you’ll also need to think about whether you’d like to use it in the shower, if you want a pop-up beard trimmer, or perhaps you might need a shaver that’s kind to sensitive skin.

Our tips below should help you decide which type of shaver will suit your needs. Once you've decided what type of shaver is best for you, read our full electric shaver reviews to see which models have made our Which? Best Buy grade - and which you should avoid.

What types of electric shaver are there?

Foil shavers
Foil shavers have straight heads that use oscillating blades beneath a fine perforated foil to cut hair. Braun and Panasonic electric shavers have foil heads, as do some Remington models.

RotaryShavers
Rotary shavers usually have three heads.
This type of electric shaver usually has three circular heads that rotate to lift and then cut stubble. All Philips electric shavers and some Remington models have rotary heads.

Opinion is divided over which type is best. Our lab tests have uncovered models of both types that excel at shaving and comfort enough to earn our Best Buy recommendation, so we believe it's largely a matter of personal preference. Click to go to our full list of Best Buy electric shavers.

Mains rechargeable shavers
Mains rechargeable shavers can be used while they’re plugged into the mains or cordless. The mains option is useful if you forget to charge up your shaver before you need to use it.

Cordless shavers
Most other shavers, including all ‘wet and dry’ models, are rechargeable and have to be used cordless. This gives you more freedom to move around while you shave but means you can’t use them while they’re charging. Electric shavers that can be used wet are always cordless to ensure that you can’t plug them in while you’re in the shower.

Mains-only shavers
Mains shavers aren’t rechargeable and need to be plugged in to work. These days mains only models tend to be basic, entry-level shavers.
