Clean & Renew System

The Series 3 390cc-4 uses the Braun Clean & Renew System, an alcohol-based, four-step cleaning centre. Using alcohol cleaning fluid eliminates 99.999% of all germs and bacteria in every cleaning process. Tests have shown that using the cleaning centre is 10 times more hygienic than simply rinsing your shaver under tap water. The unit offers:

- Alcohol based cleaning solution for hygienic cleaning
- Automatic charging
- Automatic lubrication for optimal cutting efficiency
- Fresh lemon scent

Shaver features include:

New SensoFoil for a more efficiently close shave: The optimised foil cuts hair more easily while being smooth to the skin. With ergonomically designed foil holes that consistently capture hair for a more efficient, close shave and minimised skin irritation.

Triple action cutting system: Twin foils and an integrated middle trimmer shave progressively closer.

Triple Action FreeFloat System: Adapts to every facial contour with three independently moving shaving elements, cutting both short hairs and long hairs with every stroke. With improved performance on three-day beards, leaves you with a fresh, super skin feeling.

Precision Long Hair Trimmer for precise styling: The Series 3 Long Hair Trimmer is a great and precise tool to trim your sideburns, moustache or beard.

Precision head lock: The head lock allows for an even more precise shave in tricky areas.

Four-stage LED display for low charge and battery status and hygiene status: The Series 3 390cc-4 comes with the most advanced Series 3 display with very precise charging, battery and hygiene status indication.

Powerful rechargeable Ni-MH battery: The Series 390cc-4 is rechargeable and works both cordless and corded.

100% washable and waterproof: Braun shavers have a fully sealed body and can be rinsed quickly under running water. For optimal convenience, you can use the Clean & Renew System to hygienically clean your shaver at the touch of a button.

Full charge in only one hour--45 minutes cordless shaving: One hour charging time gives you up to 45 minutes of cordless shaving. A quick five-minute charge is sufficient for one cordless shave. The SmartPlug has an automatic worldwide voltage adjustment. It adapts to an outlet voltage between 100V and 240V, for your best convenience at home or travelling.

Shaving FAQ

What‘s the difference between foil and rotary shavers?

Rotary shavers are designed to work with cyclical movements while Braun foil shavers are designed to work with efficient sideways movements on the skin giving perfect control and precision. The foils protect the skin from irritation and are specifically designed to deliver the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

Why would I need a Clean & Renew System when I can clean my Series 3 shaver under water?

Braun’s tests show that cleaning your shaver with a Clean & Renew station is 10 times more hygienic than cleaning it under the tap. It‘s also more convenient--at the touch of a button your shaver is cleaned, de-germed, charged and lubricated automatically.

I already have a cleaning station from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Synchro). Can I use it with the new Series 3 shaver?

No, the new Series 3 Clean & Renew System is the latest model from the Braun Clean & Renew line and can‘t be used with previous shaver models. The latest Clean & Renew System provides you with the best technology available in a cleaning and charging system.

How often do I need to replace the cleaning centre refill cartridge?

If you clean your shaver with the cleaning centre twice a week, you will only need to replace the refill cartridge every two to three months to experience a shaver like new, every day.

Do you have any recommendation on how to shave with an electric foil shaver?

Braun recommends you shave before you take a shower. After a few days without shaving, for example during the weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Keep the pressure even to achieve the the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

How often do I need to change the shaver head?

Braun recommends replacing all cutter parts every 18 months. A replacement part indicator on the LED display ensures you know when it’s time to change the cutter parts in order for your shaver to always stay at 100% performance.

Please note: this item comes with a 2-pin plug, suitable for use in a bathroom environment.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Think before you buy 26 Aug 2011
    By John W
    I've been using Braun razors for over 20 years, so I was tempted to buy the heavily discounted 390cc at around 70. Now I see there's a "new" version at around double the price, but is it any good because I'm very disappointed with the one I bought.

    Fully charged the 390 seems to oscillate (sp?) very slowly (about the same as my old Braun when it was running out of battery), so as a result it catches and pulls any long hairs and HURTS ( I've never had this before). It's also slow going to shave, as I have to keep going back over the same area to get a decent finish. So I'm not impressed, so much so I've just bought a new foil & cutters to refurbish my old one and I'm going to have to continue to use that, confining my 390cc to the back of the cupboard.

    Moving on to the cleaning system, it uses the same cartridges as my old one (good) - BUT the electrical connections are differant so I can't interchange razors in the same clean & renew charging stand. This is a shame as my old one had fan assisted drying - the new one doesnt and the razor can take 4 hours or more to dry off.

    The head on the 390cc is totally enclosed so there's no possibility to clean the cutters with a brush - as a result Braun recommend using the clean & renew every day - so expect to spend a lot on new solvent cartridges and electricty bills. OK it's washable under the tap (nice video - but it doesnt show the drying time is several hours - very inconvenient if you're travelling), and also if you do that for a week or more Braun recommend treating the cutters with light machine oil - well we all have a can of that hanging around!!!

    I wished I'd not bought it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What a nice shaver. 23 Aug 2011
    By Rob S TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Wow! What a nice shaver.

    I have had a few Braun shaver and everyone seems to be better than the last, how can the keep improving, the last one I had was amazing, this one is even better.

    The shaver has a Triple Action FreeFloat System, which means the shaver stays close with every bump and contour your face can changeling it to, it also has a a new look head which really gives a good shave.

    It claims to cope with three day beards, I'm lazy when it comes to shaving so was ready for that challenge, as I tend to only shave every three days (I work from home and the wife doesn't seem to moan), It did a very nice job, no pulling of the hairs which I have found on previous shavers.

    I am familiar with the cleaning system and they are great, you drop the shaver in the housing and the system cleans the shaver, always feels like a new shaver after its cleaned, never thought it as a gimmick, only down side is you need to buy the Braun CCR3 Clean & Renew Refill Cartridges - 3-Pack from time to time, there not to expensive, cheaper than buying wet blades all the time, and they do give the shaver a new feel when used.

    The shaver takes under an hour to charge and can also be used straight from the cord.

    I can understand what people mean by a wet shave being better than a electric shaver, I still enjoy a wet shave, but I use the Braun more than I wet shave as its less messy, no cuts, and I can walk about while I use it.

    A great shaver that is highly recommended.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very smart shaver with extra perks 13 Sep 2011
    By P. Sharpe VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    The shaver in itself looks lovely and fits the hands nicely and comes with a nice black hard fabric case and a small cleaning brush.

    Along with the shaver comes a "Clean and Renew" stand/charger. Braun tell you that you can however, just wash it with water (and soap) as long as you apply a little oil every week or so to lubricate it.

    THE SHAVER

    It is very easy to use and very effective on the cheeks and directly under the chin. I do however find it a bit of a struggle on the neck/Adam's apple, taking a much longer time to get a good shave. The problem I feel is that you are meant to go against the direction of hair growth and for me its a bit random around the Adam's apple area. Maybe I will get used to it though as I go. I've come from using a rotary head shaver which applies a different shaving action, so that is maybe part of the problem.

    Contrary to some of the other reviews I can say that I've never had the shaver catch and pull any hairs out yet.

    The sideburn trimmer is excellent, really sharp and cuts very well.

    THE CLEAN AND RENEW

    It does work well and the shaver comes out smelling really fresh. The downside is the cost of the alcohol liquid (about 12 for 3) which apparently evaporates also, so will only last around two months. After using mine I have taken it out of the Clean & Renew cradle and put the lid back on to hopefully maximise its life. We shall see.

    ***EDIT 25 Jan 12***
    NB to prolong life of the cleaning fluid, although it kind of seems to defeat the purpose...it is best to clean your shaver foil and inside it quite thoroughly with water first. Otherwise those little bits of stubble end up in the clean and renew fluid after cleaning....

    4.0 out of 5 stars Solid performer 23 Aug 2011
    By Paul TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    Lets talk about beards - I'm the owner of a beard that has more direction changes than a coalition government. Not only does it not grow in one general direction but in quite a few places grows completely flat to my skin. This has proven tough to shave even for the best wet razors. What about my philtrum - you know that grooved bit attached under your nose which stops you top lip from dropping in your morning coffee - its a right pain in the proverbial. By now you will have deduced I'm a wet shaver and I have the beard that the majority of us have - and not the one advertising executives film for the fatuous campaigns for their shaving products. Braun could learn a thing or two here as one of the videos shows a guy who embodies shaving perfection - yeah, right!

    So to the Braun Series 3, my beard was ready (I had 6 days growth). I unpacked it all slid the Braun CCR3 Clean & Renew Refill Cartridges - 3-Pack that came with it (you get one cartridge) which last 4 weeks if you shave every day, which currently works out about 92p per week if you buy the replacements off Amazon.

    I then discovered after a quick bit of reading that I should use trimmer on any beard that had over three days of growth. After doing this I began, careful to keep the shaver at right angles to my face.

    The result:
    Initial reaction; I was not that impressed. However after using it on a day to day basis the results are getting better to the point where I quite enjoy using and can say that I like it.

    Does it replace a wet shave?
    Well I haven't run to the bathroom looking for my wet razor yet. Therefore the answer has to be a yes but only time can tell.

    The plus points:
    1.
