What are the differences among Braun Series 7 models?
Beyond the shaving technologies found in the 720s, both the 760cc and 790cc models feature the advanced Clean & Renew™ System from Braun. The Clean & Renew™ System automatically cleans, charges, lubricates, and dries your electric shaver. The 790cc model has the Fast Clean setting and offers the most advanced display among Braun electric shavers. Its LCD display offers detailed updates on the status of the charging battery and the hygiene of the shaver itself. In addition, unlike the 720s and 760cc’s black casing, the 790cc is packaged in an elegant Noble Metal color.

Do you have any recommendations for how to shave with an electric foil shaver?
We recommend that you shave before taking a shower. After a few days without shaving (for example, the first shave after the weekend), you should trim your stubble before you shave.

Maintain even pressure to achieve the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.
