Gone are the days when a close shave in the shower could only be achieved with a regular shaver and shaving cream. The technology of wet and dry electric shavers has improved dramatically over the past decade to give you other options. The old electric shavers often irritated the skin, but that is history with the new breed of razors. We have reviewed and compiled a list of the best electric shavers to make you hum again.

Braun Series 9 9290cc Electric Shaver

Smooth and quiet shave

This wet and dry electric foil razor feels so comfortable in the hand even though it gives a powerful cross-cutting action. We think this is the world's most efficient shaver. The  Opti-Foil brings exceptional closeness to your skin while the micro-vibrations capture more hair in every stroke. It will not pull hair or cause razor burns. Plus, it is washable and comes with a cleaning center, which will keep the razor clean, charged, and lubricated. A built-in fan will ensure the razor is dry before charging starts.
