    Sometimes less is more...

    Pros mentioned:
    Cleanup, Cord, Price
    Cons mentioned:
    Battery

    The Philips Norelco 1100 series Electric Shaver is what one might call a no-thrills shaver. No battery (it’s corded), no turbo shave mode, and no built in blue tooth speaker or Alexa commands (would someone really want to talk to their shaver, anyway?). But at just under $30.00, it’s a very competent shaver well worth considering. With the 1100 series, you get a cover for the tri-blade system, a power cord, and well, that’s pretty much it. Sorry – no carrying case. Due to a lack of battery, The black color is generically appealing, and it feels VERY lightweight… almost cheap. But the build quality is fine, and it shaves just as closely as some of the rechargeable models that cost three times as much, and is quieter than some costing more. A well-placed button pops the top open allowing for quick cleanings of the blades (or replacement when due), and when unplugged, it can handle splashes for that rinsing. It’s worth noting that if you are trying this type of shaver and are coming from a hand-held razor or another type of razor, that Philips in their literature asks that you give this 3 weeks for your skin and beard to adjust to a new grooming system. They say at first, you may not think it’s cutting as close, or it may even irritate your skin a little, but again, ask for people to give it 3 weeks to adjust. I’ve known people who converted from a regular razor to a circular one who adjusted almost immediately, but also some who had to give it a week or so, so it’s worth pointing this out since again, it is in their enclosed booklet, and in my own use, I’m finding this to be true so far. In an age where everything is rechargeable, using a razor with a cord can feel a little cumbersome. But lithium batteries wear out and are expensive. Given the fact this does give you a close shave for a low cost, it may well be worth considering this over more expensive options. My rating is based on what you get for the price, though I will knock off 1 star since they don’t at least include a cheap travel pouch for it (boo). Recommended for price.

    Smooth, Gets the Job Done

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Cord, Ease of use, Shave quality

    So after reading up about this shaver I saw that this company tells you to give your beard around 2-3 weeks to adjust to its style, but I saw a difference immediately. I do suspect it may even be a closer shave as my face gets used to it. I initially thought it was the same as every other shaver I have ran through over the years, but a huge difference happened with this one. I usually get little blisters that look like a rash on my neck after I do my usual shave, but this was the first time I didn’t get those. To be honest, I think I still find the foil shavers still shave a bit closer, but this shaver does go on quite smooth, its easy to use, and has no vibration. One other thing I found that I liked with the Norelco was the thin cord as I actually prefer thinner cords that don’t work against me while shaving. The best part about this is that there is no battery to charge at the end of the cord which is a definitive PLUS. One other issue I would say is a “con” is that there is no case. This is a more expensive shaver I’d say and I’ve seen cheaper ones come with a case, but that’s just a personal preference. It definitely gets the job done so I will see how it holds up over the next few months.

    Nice Clean and Close Shave

    Cleanup, Ease of use, Shave quality

    First of all this is a corded shaver, but it does provide a really nice clean shave. This shaver is washable which does make the cleaning easier. Overall not bad at all.

    Traditional razor user unimpressed with electric

    Posted .
    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use, Price, Shave quality

    Evaluating this product reminds me why I’m not an electric razor type user. I just couldn’t get a close shave, and had to press firmly over the same area trying to get close to the skin. My son gets rash with regular razor blades, and is a big fan of electric razors, though he prefers a rechargeable Li-ion battery, and other amenities like Turbo mode. Unfortunately this unit falls flat for me. I normally wear a goatee but without the precision of clean straight lines I’m just not an electric razor guy, so don’t let my aversion negatively affect your decision on this product. PROS ——— + affordable + Light weight + simple to operate, plug and push + dust cap included CONS ——— -no rechargeable battery -feels very cheap and unbalanced in hand -can’t detail shave, I had to finish with my regular Harry’s blade

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
    • Brand response from Philips Consumer Care
      Posted .

      Hiya, thanks for taking the time to write your honest review here. We appreciate your feedback on the features and functions of the razor and will make sure to pass it on to the concerning team.
      In regards to getting a close shave, we would actually recommend you to not press firmly but actually do the opposite. Only apply a gentle pressure which makes your facial hair stand upright and makes it easier for the shaver blades to catch and cut them. Gentle pressure also reduces friction between the shaver and your skin, resulting in a more comfortable experience.
      If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch via social media. We’re available 24/7 on Facebook (@Philips) and Twitter (@PhilipsCare). Alternatively, you can reach out to us via the contact page on our website. One of our colleagues will then try their best to help you further.

      Hope to speak to you soon!


      Kind regards,
      Philips Consumer Care PhilipsBrand-EN_US

    Gives a good shave but the rinse it out to clean doesn't do the job as well as taking the head apart and cleaning with a brush. That is the reason I give it four stars. Suppose to make cleaning simple I guess - but not so much. I recommend it - but with that caveat.

    A great electric shaver for a very low cost

    Pros mentioned:
    Ease of use, Price
    Cons mentioned:
    Accessories, Battery, Features

    The Norelco 1100 electric shaver is a very simple electric shaver. When I got it, I didn’t realize just how simple it was. But that did help to explain the price. You can get this shaver for under $30.00 at most places. It is a simple 3-head electric shaver. There are no other accessories or features with this shaver. If you want wireless, additional trimmers, nice carrying case, etc., then this shaver is not for you. But remember, it is under $30.00! The last time I bought a really good, 5-blade razor, I spent $29.00 and the replacement blades were around $12.00 a pack. The main part of this review should be – how well does it shave? Let me start by saying that my whiskers are very stiff. I have a hard enough time getting a really close shave with some blades, much less an electric shaver. I did my review in two parts. For the first test, I tried shaving with this shaver on a 4-day shadow. By this time, my whiskers are no longer little stubs. This razor had a difficult time with my beard at this length. To be fair, I have never had an electric that could handle my beard at that length. All in all, it did about average, removing about 70% of the beard. I had to finish with a blade. The second test was using this shaver every day. In this test, it did really well. It cut my whiskers and removed any shadow I had. I did not have to follow up with a blade when using it regularly. So how did I come up with a 5-star rating? I simply reviewed this electric razor for what it is, not what it should have been. I did not get a shaver with a bunch of features and accessories. I did not get a shaver with a nice leather carry case and a rechargeable battery that I can use while taking a shower. I got a $29.00 electric shaver that did as well as the $170.00 electric shaver I had years ago (which only lasted about 3 years). I do not need additional trimmers, cutters, or additional accessories. I don’t need a carrying case because I have a medicine bag that I carry when traveling and it goes in there. And I don’t need the ability to shave while in the shower, although, that would be really cool. If you need an inexpensive electric shaver that cuts well when using it daily, then I can’t recommend a better selection. It’s a name brand and does what it was designed to do at a very low cost.

    A good alternative to a battery powered shaver

    Posted .

    This shaver can't be compared to it's battery powered cousins because it always needs a plug to function. I will say that it shaves just as close as a battery powered rechargable and is water proof (as long as you unplug the cord). The lack of battery makes this extremely light weight and the build quality seems like it should provide years of use. I could see packing this on a trip or using it as a backup razor for those days you may forget the charge your primary shaver. The box includes a blade cover and a plug. The AC plug is the same one that charges the Philips OneBlade so you can pack a OneBlade and this shaver and only need one cord for both! I appreciate that.

    Work Shaver

    Posted .

    Needed a good shaver for work and this Norelco did not disappoint! I can have very stubborn facial hair but the 1100 does a great job making me look presentable without turning my face beet red. I use this as a secondary shaver in the evening and it has worked awesome. When I am late for work in the morning I just take this with me and also complete a great shave taking time off my trip. Great product which is to be expected from Norelco.

    Good shave

    Pros mentioned:
    Cleanup, Ease of use, Price

    My husband got a good shave using Philips Norelco 1100 series after using it a few times it was a closer shave than the first couple times, he did get a little bit of a skin irritation so he was kind of reluctant to try an electric shaver again cause he has in the past & I read that it normal for that to happen, it won't work if your facial hair is a certain length you do have to trim it down which is a down side, it is corded & not a wet/dry so no shaving in the shower or on the road like I've seen some men do, lol. You can purchase replacement blades when needed very easy to clean & light weight. Overall good quality for the price, it is lightweight which he liked & did get the smooth close shave he was looking for in an electric shaver, we would recommend. It a good choice & simple easy use.
