Recently we’ve seen an expansion of hair trimming products designed specifically for men and their grooming needs. In most cases, these products came from the innovative brands such as Panasonic and Philips, and the German giant Braun seemed to have jumped on the bandwagon a bit later than the others.
Braun is well-known for offering high-quality craftsmanship and sleek design at good value for money. This is why many users were rather happy to see the favorite European brand offer a full range of products.
Their MGK series, which stands for men’s grooming kit, features several different models, and today we’re gonna take a closer look at the mid-level one, the Braun MGK3040. Read on to find out more.

Who Will Love It?
Well, if we take into account that Braun Head Trimming Grooming Kit is actually a 7-in-1 package, and a very competitively priced one at that, it’s hard to think of a man who wouldn’t find it appealing.
You can clip your hair, trim your beard, mustache and sideburns, and you can even shave any area of your body as the kit includes a Gillette Body Razor.
It’s very easy to clean and maintain as its precision blades are self-sharpening and require no lubrication. After using it, simply wash it under running water and leave it out to air dry.
Unbox It and Just Go
Once you open the attractively designed packaging, you’ll be greeted by a shaver, 4 combs, detail trimmer attachment, AC adaptor and a Gillette body razor.
All the other models from the Men’s Grooming Kit come in sleek black finish, but for some reason the MGK3040 is different as it adds bright blue trims and accents. When you hold it in your hand, it feels firm and well-built and it provides a great grip.
There is a large power button right at the center, and below it you will find a battery LED indicator.
Included in the package is a precision comb with 3-11mm length settings with 2mm steps in between. Along with it, there is also a long beard comb which handles anything between 13 and 21mm, also with 2mm increments in between.
You also get two more fixed combs for very precise works, as they are for 1mm and 2mm lengths respectively.
Last but not least, there’s a precision trimmer for the finest of your facial hair grooming endeavors.
As mentioned in the previous section, you have many options for customization. The precision and long beard comb both work splendidly, as the motor is pretty strong, even for those with a coarse beard.
The fixed combs will come in very handy when you need some extra fine-tuning done, while the precision trimmer can work equally well for both hair and beard.
The body razor by Gillette which comes included with the Braun MGK3040 follows the contours of your body so you’re completely safe no matter which area you run it pass.
Cleaning and Maintenance
The trimmer can be cleaned under running water, while the blades need no lubrication or any other sort of maintenance as they are self-sharpening.
Among other products in the Braun Men’s Grooming Kit line is the less expensive MGK3020. The main difference is that it can only be used cordless and that it doesn’t come with a Gillette razor. On the other hand, it does feature a neat accessory for trimming nose and ear hairs. If this sounds more important than a razor, it’s definitely worth considering.
