Our review compares electric shavers on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which electric shaver they think is best!
Canstar Blue surveyed 574 Australians for their feedback on the electric shaver(s) they’ve been gifted or purchased and used in the last three years.
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

You can generally take electric shavers on a plane in either your carry-on luggage or in the checked baggage, with most domestic and international airlines having no issues with the appliance. However, you may run into issues if it contains a large battery, so it’s best to look into what battery type your electric shaver uses, as well as double-checking with the airline you’re flying before packing your shaver into luggage.
