Let’s get straight to Panasonic Milano All-in-One Trimmer review. You must admit that a well-groomed man who like to carry a beard, knows the importance of a good beard trimmer. It helps him in carrying a beard look which is clean and neat and rather than looking untidy, further helps in enhancing his overall personality. But the problem is, the market is filled with a full gamut of beard trimmers of many different brands and across a wide price range. Not just for the beginners, but choosing one from such a myriad of options is something that even the men who’ve been using a trimmer for a long time, can find it difficult.

Panasonic Milano All-in-One: reviews

I myself have been carrying a beard for about 10 years now and have used several beard trimmers in this duration. While some of them were really great, many of them were a simple waste of money. Panasonic is a brand that has always impressed me with each of their new launches. So, when I thought of writing a review, I was very much sure that I’ll write about a beard trimmer from Panasonic. I’ve used two trimmers from Panasonic and one that impressed me most is the Milano Al-in-One Trimmer (ER-GB40-S). If you are looking to buy a beard trimmer, make sure that you go through my Panasonic Milano All-in-One Trimmer review to find yourself a winner.


In the box, along with the ER-GB40-S Beard Trimmer, you’ll get-

While the trimmer doesn’t come with a lot of bells and whistles, its fabulous performance is more than enough to make it one of the best beard trimmers currently available in the market.


Let us have a look at the features that are responsible for this beard trimmer’s impressive performance.

1. 45 Degree Precision Blades

The blades of this beard trimmer are sharp and are precisely honey to 45 degrees to offer quick and clean trimming results. No matter if you have rough, unruly, or thick hairs, the trimmer will move smoothly and will catch maximum hairs in a single go. Right from your beard, to your mustache and sideburns, it will not just trim the hairs but will add fine details to them to ensure that you are able to carry an attractive look.

2. Quick Adjust Dial

This Panasonic beard trimmer features an easy-to-use dial for adjusting the trimming length. It has a total of 19 trimming lengths ranging from 1 to 10 mm in 0.5 mm succession. Simply turn the dial to choose the length you want.

3. Wet/Dry Operation

This beard trimmer can be used along with shaving foam or gel for a wet shave over a sink or you can directly use it on your face for a dry shave when you are on-the-go. This feature allows you to quickly trim your hair when you are running out of time but still need precise and clean results.

4. Water Drain

The Panasonic Milano All-in-One Trimmer features a water drain which can be easily opened to eliminate the water which gets collected in the trimmer while cleaning. Needless to say, it is 100% waterproof and can be easily cleaned under a faucet.

5. Rechargeable Battery

This beard trimmer has a Ni-MH battery which can be fully charged in 15 hours. When the battery is completely charged, you can use the trimmer continuously for 50 minutes. Moreover, you can also use the trimmer while it is being charged.

6. Charging Stand

The trimmer comes with a charging stand that has a red LED light to indicate when the trimmer is charging and turns green when it is fully charged. You can also use this stand for storing the trimmer when not in use.

Cleaning, Renew & Maintenance

Cleaning after every use and regular maintenance of the trimmer is very important to enhance the shelf life of the trimmer. Fortunately, both cleaning and maintenance of this trimmer is very simple. As mentioned above, this beard trimmer is 100% waterproof and you can easily wash it under running water. It is preferable if the water is warm. It has a drain hole for eliminating the water that goes into the trimmer along with the cut hair.

If we talk about the maintenance, it is recommended that you should lubricate the blades of the trimmer after washing with the help of the small lubricant bottle included with the trimmer. While the blades are made from stainless steel, there is a possibility that they might corrode. Thus, it is important to lubricate the blades after every use. Apart from preventing corrosion, lubrication also helps in enhancing the performance of the trimmer when being used.

Warranty Details

The Panasonic Milano All-in-One Trimmer comes with a standard 2-year manufacturer’s warranty. If you ever want to replace the blades or battery of this trimmer, Panasonic sells these replacement parts through its website and you can also find them at other online stores.
