Long gone are the days when you used one tool for shaving, another one for trimming your beard, then another one for your sideburns and hard-to-get-to areas under your nose or behind your ears, and so on…
In recent times we’ve grown accustomed to the fact that modern gadgets do a lot more, and often they combine multiple tools into one convenient package. Men who prefer trimming their beards and maintaining hairstyles on their own are always on the hunt for that ultimate grooming tool.
Of course, not all of us have the budget to buy the most expensive little machines out there, so in most cases, we strive to find the best bang for our buck. Today, I’m gonna tell you all about one of the bestselling grooming kits on the market – the Braun MGK3020.
Braun Multi-Grooming Kit MGK3020 is a brilliant little package that includes a beard trimmer, 4 combs that cover 13 different hair length settings, and a separate attachment for ear & nose hair trimming.
It is designed for cordless use, and it provides around 40 minutes of juice after 10 hours of charging.
Lifetime-lasting sharp blades need no lubrication or maintenance and the trimming head and combs can be rinsed under running water.
As you can see, it’s a simple yet effective package, designed for most men’s grooming, trimming, and shaving needs, and it’s also very competitively priced.
In the Box
Once you open the box, you’ll find the trimmer, four different combs for hair and beard trimming, an attachment for nose and ear hair trimming and also a Gillette Flexball for shaving.
The first thing you notice is the sleek design, which, when Braun is concerned, runs in the family. Some of you may not know, but ever since its early days, Braun has always pushed the boundaries of quality and recognizable industrial design.
Under the guidance of the legendary designer, Dieter Rams, Braun has grown to become a leader in the field of small, precise machines that make our lives easier and more convenient.
The Braun 6 in 1 MGK3020 doesn’t fail to deliver here. It looks and feels well-made and sits neatly in your hand. It’s simple and refined, and there’s only one big power button on the front side.
What Does It Do?
If you need a shaver, I strongly suggest using the Braun series 7, It’s No.1 Shaver in our buyer guide of best electric shavers it follows the contours of your face. No other electric shaver will ever give you such a clean shave.
Beard trimming and hair clipping is a completely different story. Braun MGK3020 comes with 4 different combs which provide you with no less than 13 precision length settings, ranging from 0.5 to 21 mm at 2mm increment.
The long beard comb covers anything from 13 to 21mm with 2mm steps in between, the precision comb covers lengths from 3 to 11mm with 2mm increments, while the remaining two combs are actually fixed ones at 1mm and 2mm length respectively.
You can’t really expect the most powerful motor at this price range, but it actually pulls through, no matter how thick your hair. But it can’t really deal that well with anything longer than the longest length setting of the comb.
As mentioned earlier, there is a precise little attachment included, designed to be used for trimming the tiny hairs in your ears and your nose. Right off the bat, it works so much better than the smaller battery-operated ones and it doesn’t pull or tug at your hairs.
Another important aspect of Braun MGK3020 is its battery. It takes 10 long hours for the battery to be fully charged, and it provides you with enough juice for approximately 40 minutes of grooming experience.
At this price range, you can’t really expect a quick charge option, so make sure you always charge the battery during the night. In case you forget, you can use it while it’s charging, minus the cordless operation obviously.
Maintenance and Cleaning
Even though it’s not waterproof or water-resistant, the Braun MGK3020’s head and combs can easily be rinsed under running water after use. Once you’re through, just leave it out to air dry.
Its precision blades are self-sharpening so they don’t require any lubrication or any other form of maintenance for that matter.
The Final Verdict
Braun MGK3020 is a fine product that will give you many 40 minutes of trimming and clipping pleasures without breaking your bank.
The 6 in 1 concept really works as it’s equally effective dealing with your hair, beard, mustache, sideburns, ear hairs, nose hairs, you name it.
It’s a well-made product, built to last, and I highly recommend it.
