Here I will list you the best working electric shavers. I took the pain for many hours to create this whole list for you( for your long beard ;-)). The products listed here are of minimum $50.
Before diving into these list of shavers let’s look into the history(How it is invented).
On may 13 1930, Colonel Jacob Schick obtained the patent for his invention. He suffered an injury while doing some gold exploration in Alaska and British Columbia in the early 1910s. Due to his injury, he found difficult to shave his beard. There the idea to create the machine is born. In 1930 the firm was incorporated as Schick Dry Shaver, Inc. From then onwards, the company sales shot the shy.
Today in the market we have ample of electric shavers, you don’t need to use the dangerous razors which might cut your skin.
Now let’s dive into the best electric shavers which don’t cut your skin.

The common things in the listed electric shavers are Wet and dry shave, closer have for smooth skin, hassle-free wash and adjusts to your face curves to provide cut free shave.
Note: – The electric shavers-with a low price tag don’t give good performance as the high price tag products. I am not saying you to buy very high priced products($400-$500) instead get the shaver at the reasonable price(starting from $ 100).
The high priced shavers may have features which you might not use. Then why you should pay for the product which you do not use.Sometimes these high priced electric shavers perform same as the electric shavers with a reasonable price tag.
I have used few electric razors below $ 100. They didn’t provide good quality in design and it didn’t last long. But when I have started using the above listed electric shavers which are above$100 I found a difference. The design is really good and they are lasting for years.
The Panasonic Arc 5, Braun Series 5-565cc are the shavers which I have used for a log time and they work really well. Even The other products give you the best shave when compared to other electric shavers in the market.
