Philips Norelco Multigroom 9000 – Detailed Review

Design

At first glance, you will notice that it has a stainless steel handle and no-slip rubber grip. So, it looks nice and feels nice, too.

Most (if not all!) users will tell you that it is solid and durable, which is in keeping with Philip’s guaranteed high quality. The overall shape and size are also convenient. It is sleek and lightweight.

Therefore, even if you are a newbie in trimming, edging, or shaving with an all-in-one product, it will be trouble-free to use, and result in minimal hand fatigue.

Tools

When you pick up the Philips Norelco Multigroom 9000 or get it delivered to your front steps, you will find six attachments and 15 guards.

More specifically, in six attachments, you will get a detailed metal trimmer, a metal trimmer, a nose-and-ear trimmer, an extra-wide hair trimmer, a body shaver, and a foil shaver.

For the rest, 15 guards, there is a 3mm-7mm beard adjustable comb, three beard- and three stubble trimming guards, an eyebrow trimming guard, six hair trimming guards, and two body trimming guards.

Features

The Norelco Multigroom 9000 is equipped with DualCut Technology, which allows you to cut in two directions and get even and precise results. Plus, it accelerates the cutting speed. This is quite handy when you are tight on time or just need a quick touch-up.

You will appreciate that the blades are doubled, non-corrosive, and self-sharpening, too. They enhance precision for clean, sharp lines, and will not rust or wear out easily. Thus, you can rest assured that they will be reliable for a long time (up to three years, to be exact!)

The guards are all reinforced to prevent bending or buckling; so, you can be less worried about hurting yourself, even if you are a first-time shaver or in a rush.

Moreover, the Norelco Multigroom 9000 has trimmers for the beard and hair. You can rely on them for more precision and safety.

The unit as a whole is resistant to water. This means that you do not have to hold back on wet shaving, and you can rinse it under the tap to clean.

Another thing that you will appreciate about the Norelco Multigroom 9000 is that it is not even close to being as noisy as its counterparts. In fact, it operates so silently that you may not notice it is there!

Accessories

Accompanying them are accessories for maintenance and storage: a cleaning brush and a case respectively.

The case is simple but sturdy. It safeguards and keeps everything you need in one place. This makes it portable; even at the last minute, you can just grab and carry it with you. It helps that the case is just about the size of an adult’s palm. You can fit it in most bags!

Here is the inside of the case:

Pretty! But more drawers in the inner part for the left side may be more favorable. The 25 pieces can then be organized, and it will be a lot easier for users (like you and me) to quickly get the attachment or guard that we need.

It is particularly important when you are running late but still want to clean yourself up and look presentable.

Power

This multi-purpose product is powered by lithium-ion batteries, which last for six hours on a full charge. This means you can use it for one or two weeks before having to charge it again.

Remember: Shaving tasks usually do not take a lot of time and are not always daily.

If you are out of run time, you can get it back up just after two hours of charging. But, if you are in a hurry, there is also an option for a 5-minute quick charge.

Nevertheless, you will rarely be caught with an empty battery. There is a light-up charging indicator and battery low indicator that tells you when charging is needed.

The only small inconvenience is that the jack for charging is at the bottom of the handle surface. So, you need to lay the device down when it is charging. There is no option to charge upright. Hence, it will take up a bit of space.

The Norelco Multigroom 9000 also comes with a cord. Hence, you can use it plugged in when the battery is uncharged. This is a savior for any time you forget about charging!

Ease of Use

The attachments are easy to attach and detach; so, you do not have to worry even if you are a first-time user. All you need to do is tilt the cutting head back to front and pop the tool right in. Once you are done using it, do the opposite – tilt the head backward (back to front) and pop it off.

The guides are just as easy to change in and out! Simply pick the one you need, slide it over the sharp end at the front and let the tab click into place on the back.

The only drawback with the Norelco Multigroom 9000’s ease of use is the power button. It is slightly raised and positioned right where you may accidentally hit and switch it off while using it. It is definitely not a deal-breaker, but now that you know about it, keep it in mind to never make that mistake.

Maintenance

What’s also great about the Norelco Multigroom 9000 is that it is entirely washable and does not require any blade oil. There is not much to worry about maintenance; thus, you can have an efficient self-care routine.

Price & Purpose

For some, the price can be a little steep, but it is important that you remember what you can get from this for many years to come. This product can be used for your face, head, and body.

Just one device for your face, head, and body

For your face, you can trim your beard in different lengths, starting from 0.5mm, and you can make styles for it with the various insertable heads that are included in the product kit. A long beard, a short beard, a goatee, etc., – the sky’s the limit!

For your head, just think about not having to go to the barber! You will never have to pay for such services again. It is possible to cut hair on both sides and at/to any length you want in the comforts of your own home.

For your body, simply secure the foil shaving head. You can get rid of hair on your body, including areas below the waistline, without worrying about hurting your skin.

Although this does not mean you can mess around, shave carelessly, and still expect good results; it is necessary to shave properly and be careful.

You can also make use of one of the guards to trim nose and ear hair. All you have to do is attach the guard, switch on the machine, and slowly but safely move the head in your nose or ear (but do not push it in too deep). It will rotate and remove the hair.

Warranty

Along with the price tag, is a warranty of up to 10 years. You can request repairs for your product through customer service or change for a new one if there are defects.

Needless to say, the 10-year warranty period is a lot lengthier than most warranties for this line of product. What can be a better indicator of how reliable this product is, right?
