Electric shaver

My fuzzy ears and whiskers take me too much time to shave.

I've been using a rather cheap (£10) shaver, from China. I think the problem with it, is that it gets blunt very quickly, and a blunt shaver makes shaving take a long time.

So, for my birthday this year, I asked for a really good shaver.

I did the research, and decided that what I wanted was German Engineering - a Braun. So I got a series 9.

There seems to be a zillion versions of the series 9, but I think they all have the same shaver head, and that's got to be what matters. So I got one that was reasonably priced. It was the Braun 9 9240s, and cost £120 (list price apparently £300, but I don't believe that).

And it is a seriously good shaver. Whereas before I needed a few dozen passes to mow the beard, now it chomps it up in a single pass.

The s series doesn't come with a head cleaner, but I thought, how hard can that be? And indeed, head cleaning is easy.

The head, I'm told, lasts 12 to 18 months, and a replacement head is about £60. So that's on my list for next year's birthday!
