1.Extremely Close Shave

The closeness of the shave is one of the leading reasons due to which a lot of men still prefer using a manual razor. However, the closeness offered by this Braun Series 7-799cc shaver is similar to a manual razor. The only difference is that the problem of minor cuts, pulling of hair, skin irritation is very common in manual shavers but this electric shaver is completely free from all these problems.

2. Wet and Dry Shaving

I love using a good shaving cream or gel while I shave but at times I need to hurry and finish the shaving as soon as possible. This electric shaver is excellent to use in this kind of situation. Moreover, it is also 100% waterproof and can be carried to shower as well.

3. Charges Quickly

I generally charge my shaver fully and like the fact that it requires merely 60 minutes to charge completely. Moreover, if you finish the shaving in 10 minutes, the remaining charge will stay in the shaver and you can easily use it on the next time again. Also, the quick charge feature comes in very handy at times when you're in a hurry.


1.Refill of Cleaning Cartridge

The cartridge in the cleaning station needs to be replaced in every couple of months depending on the number of times you use the cleaning station. While it is not very expensive and easily available, it still adds very little to the operating cost of the shaver.

2. Expensive Replacement Parts

Some electric shaver reviews suggest that the cutters and foil of this shaver are inexpensive. However, it is not much of an issue  as the shaver is highly durable and is sure to last for a very long time.



My personal experience with this shaver is highly satisfactory and it has completely transformed the process of shaving for me. Every aspect of this shaver is extremely user friendly and I can place it above the other models and brands available in the market without having any doubt.

Regular cleaning and maintenance is the perfect way to ensure that your shaver delivers exceptional shaving results in every single time. For cleaning it properly, you can use the charging and cleaning station that comes along with this shaver or you can clean it manually as well under running water. The cleaning station requires a cartridge to function which easily lasts for 2-3 months if you shave 3-4 times a week. If you clean the shaver under water, you can use the cleaning station with better results and in lesser time.

1. I was going through the electric shaver reviews and found that the Braun Series 7-790cc and Series 7-799cc are almost the same, but 790cc is almost $100 more expensive than the 790cc, why so?

A. The 799cc is an upgraded version of the 790cc and a lot of small changes have been made in it. However, the biggest difference between them is that the 799cc is a wet/dry shaver and 100% water proof whereas the 790cc is only a dry shaver.

2. How long does the cartridge of the cleaning station last? Where can I buy the replacement cartridge?

A. I shave daily but use the cleaning station 3-4 times a week. For me, it easily lasts more than 3 months. You can find the cartridge at your local dealers shop or you can also buy it from Amazon.

    I have found a lot of similariies between Braun Series 7 790cc and 799cc. But my question is what is the basic difference btn 790cc & 799cc?

    • Instant Grooming says:

      The Braun Series 7 790cc features only dry shave by the manufacturers and Braun Series 7 799cc features both dry and wet shave. That’s the basic difference. But don’t be afraid that you cannot do wet shave by 790cc. Thought it is written on the instruction manual of 790cc, you can safely use that for wet shaving also. This thing is tested and no harm was caused to the shaver. It is a great shaver indeed. 😀
