Very annoying that there are multiple replacement foil and cutters for the series 5 shaver. I’m about to throw a 51s replacement foil in the garbage because it is so difficult to parse our exactly which foil to purchase. If anyone at the Braun company thinks they are running an environmentally friendly company , they are delusional. Simplify your product line and clearly delineate your model series. A Seried 51s foil doesn’t fit a 5140s shaver? Ridiculous!
I have a series 5 that did an amazing job for the first 18 months. When I replaced the cassette which included the foil and cutter head in one cartridge it lasted only six months. I am hesitant to buy another cartridge because of the difference in quality between original and replacement. Is there a way to buy the original cassette?

Paul, we'd hope for nothing but the highest quality from us with every single purchase so we're very sorry to hear about this. We do want to let you know that a Braun shaver foil and cutter should last up to 18 months, depending on your shaving method, beard type and how well and often you clean it. To get the most uses, always hold your shaver at a 90 degree angle and regularly clean and oil it with light machine oil. If you have a thicker beard, you may be shaving longer each day which can reduce the lifetime of the foil. If you'd like to share more with us, we're always here to help. Simply give us a call at (800) 272-8611.
I have a Braun series 5. I purchased the replacement head which states that it is for a Braun series 5, but it is not compatible. The blade insert is not the same attachment and the foil head is too small to fit. I’ve only owned the razor for 2 years. Has the model changed so much that the replacements no longer fit my razor?

We're sorry for the confusion! Our 52S Combipack is compatible with our 50xx models. For example, our 5090CC, 5070CC, 5050CC, 5040S, 5030S shavers will require this foil and cutterblock.
I have had 3 foils in a year and a half. I use the cleaning station after every shave once a day and still get a tear or hole in the foil. I always change the foil and cutter block together. Braun has replaced one foil at no charge. I agree with other reviews of foil redesign since the original that came on my series 5. When I had series 3 I would replace foil every couple years. I might try the new series 7 but hope for a better foil.

We always want you to receive the highest quality from us so we're sorry to hear about your recent Braun experiences and we'd like to help. We do want to share with you that a foil and cutter should last up to 18 months, depending on your shaving method, beard type and how well and often you clean it. To prevent this from happening in the future, be sure to use light pressure when shaving. Pressing too hard can shorten the lifetime and cause damage to the foil. If you have a thicker beard, you may be shaving longer each day which can reduce the lifetime of the foil. Always hold the shaver at a 90 degree angle along with cleaning and oiling it regularly.

I have been using a Braun razor for 20+ years but Braun has ruined its brand by cutting costs on razor foil quality. Foils used to last about a year before holes started to appear and knick your face - now you're lucky if you get 4 months before they start to fall apart. The last one I used developed a hole so big while shaving it injured/cut my face very badly. In the past when your foil started to fall apart the holes were so small you didn't get injured and you had a heads up on when to replace the foil. I called 800# to complain and they sent me a $50 visa gift card which I used to purchase a new foil/razor - 4 months later - same thing happened. Now Braun does not sell Series 5 foil/razor sets - just the foil!! $43 for just a foil and of course Target does not have the razor in stock! At first I thought they started packaging the foil/razor differently so I couldn't see the razor - nope - they are bound and determined to rip their own consumers off. Guess what happens now - I'm no longer a Braun customer. Greedy, dirty, rip-off of a brand. Target should stop carrying their products until they prove they've stopped cutting costs at the expense of their customers.
At 1/3 the cost of the shaver, each of these replacement foil and cutter-block kits is a poor value given it's construction. The replacements do not fit as well in the shaver head as the original component, and their performance is still only marginally better than the worn-out original. The longevity of the replacements is also 12 months at best rather than the prescribed 18 months.
