Electric shavers come in all different shapes, sizes and prices. Top of the range electric razors for guys normally start from $200 right up to $600 in some models.
If you’re main focus when it comes to purchasing a shaver is purely down to cost, then there is no shortage of cheap yet reliable shavers on the market. In fact there are some electric razors that shave and feel just like the top end brands, so it’s worthwhile checking the list below and see if you can grab yourself a bargain. A good quality well built shaver can be purchased for less than $100 and in this post we will show you the best electric shavers that you can get your hands on for $100 or less. Let’s get to it!
Nobody likes to pay extra for features that we’ll never use.
As with a lot of electric shavers these day, they come with too many bells and whistles. All those additional features costs you money, whether you use them or not. With the Panasonic ES-LT41, you get simplicity, you get reliablity and lastly you get great value for money, because to be honest with you, I can’t split this shaver’s performance with any of the top range shavers. You really do get a nice clean shaver without your bank account getting cleaned out!
2. Philips Norelco AT830
A Great Performance At A Great Price
Another no nonsense, no gimmicks, high quality mid-range electric razor for under $100.
A highly competent rotary shaver that can handle all types of hair and all lengths of hair, which is a major plus point over other foil shaver counterparts.
The AT830 is priced really well and does the job what it’s designed to do. Although if you’ve used high end razors before, then you will notice that it doesn’t feel very ‘new’ compared to other models in the Norelco range and other brands. Overall with this shaver you get a high performance shaver without all the accessories and features that more expensive shavers offer. In most cases you just don’t need those extra features.
3. Braun 3 Series Proskin 3040 – Wet & Dry Shaver
Highly respected brand with awesome Mid-Range Shavers.
The Braun Series 3 – proskin 3040 is well worth the money, and then some! One of the best foil shavers in its class, the Series 3 is designed for men who don’t want to compromise their shaving experience and who don’t want to pay the earth for features they don’t need. It’s incredibly smooth on skin, effective on 3 to 4 day beards thanks to it’s Triple Action FreeFloat System, and for under $70 it is pound for pound one of the best shavers around.
4. Remington F5-5800 Men’s Foil Shaver
A Reliable Old Friend
This shaver is rough and ready. It’s a “pick me up, use me and then throw me in the cupboard” type of shaver. It’s tough, it does the job well, and it’s no nonsense. You don’t need a base station to clean it. You simply take the head off and rinse it under the tap.
You’re getting a very good shaver that doesn’t have all the fancy stuff with it. The only bit of fancy technology it has is the indicator on the front of the shaver that tells you how much time is left on a battery charge. Nice.
If you want a good old fashioned shaver that will last you years, then this is the shaver for you.
Probably the shaver with the most “Bells & whistles” on it, and for around $80, it should be a lot more. The Panasonic ES8243A has Arc4 shaving system which basically means that you have 4 micro-thin, stainless-steel foils to give you an even closer shave.
Then there’s the flexible pivoting head, the high performance linear motor and multi fit arc foil which means that the shaver head is slightly curved to increase the performance of shaving around the jawline and chin area. Not only that but you can shave in the shower or bath, there’s a built-in pop-up trimmer, ten Stage LCD and a convenient travel pouch.
Can’t go wrong with this shaver really!
