1. What's the best way to shave with my Panasonic Shaver?
All models, except ES843K:
With the men's Wet/Dry shaver, you can take either a wet shave (with shaving lather and water) or a dry shave. Our research has shown that using warm water and shaving lather will give you closer and smoother shaves.
Start out shaving with gentle pressure on your face. Please note that your skin and beard need about 30 days to adjust to any new shaving method. Once you skin becomes used to the shaver, you can increase the amount of pressure applied to your face.
2. How do I use the trimmer?
Slide the trimmer handle up until it clicks into place. Position the trimmer at a right angle to your skin and move it downward to trim sideburns and long or stray hairs.
3. What is the best way to give myself a wet shave?
All models, except ES843:
Apply a thin layer of shaving foam to your face. Shaving foam is the most suitable shaving aid because it works best as a lubricator, and lets you get a closer shave. If the shaving head gets clogged, simply rinse out the foam under running water.
4. How should I clean my shaver?
We recommend that you clean your shaver regularly. Regular cleaning keeps your shaver in good condition to maintain cutting performance, and also prevents bacteria from developing.
- All models, except ES843:
With the outer foil in place, apply a little liquid hand soap on the outer foil. Turn the shaver on and rinse under running water. After about 10-20 seconds, turn the shaver off. Remove the outer foil and clean the inner blades with running water. Wipe off any moisture from the shaver with a dry cloth and remove the protective cap so that the outer foil can dry completely.
Remove the cleaning brush from the protective cap and use it to clean the blades. Then switch the shaver off, push the foil frame release button, and detach the foil frame so that you can clean it. Once it's cleaned, replace the foil frame and store the brush in the cover with the short-bristled end facing upward.
5. How often should I replace the foil and blade?
It is recommended that you replace the outer foil at least once a year, and the inner blade once at least every two years, to maintain your shaver's cutting performance.
