Just bought a Braun 799cc for $269 then 20 percent off

I did the hair test with the foil and it seems fine, does anyone have experience with this shaver?

Any recommendations for a kosher shaver for sensitive skin?
Is foil better than rotary?

Is there a 'list' of halachically compliant shavers?
According to R' Dovid Feinstein the only kosher ones are the lift and cuts with the lifts removed
i think it's because they don't make them as sharp
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Just bought the 9000 series norelco with SH90 blade
the lift and cut is changed and is not removable, I am not sure how this can be koshered

What's different about it, making it impossible to remove?

there is no wording of "Lift and cut " for model 9000 series of norelco.
checked the box, the manual, the website
checked the blade and do not see any lift and cut blade on it.

here is a detailed review

https://moo.review/philips-norelco-9300-and-9700-electric-shaver-review/


Norleco uses a V -Track cutting blade system now ... 

I would love to see some literature on the kosher-ness of that

According to this star-K article from 2012    https://www.star-k.org/articles/kashrus-kurrents/563/electric-shavers/

you can test the sharpness of the blade with a hair and see if it is too sharp, since there is no lift and cut involved
