SECAUCUS, N.J., Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Panasonic today announced that the Arc3™ ES-SL41 Men's Wet/Dry Shaver has won the Best In Category award in the prestigious 2013 Housewares Design Awards. The housewares industry's premier independent design competition, the Housewares Design Awards is celebrating 10 years of inspiring innovation. Designed in Milan, Italy the Panasonic Arc3 Men's Wet/Dry Shaver is optimized to provide a quick, close, comfortable shave and features 30-degree Nanotech™ blades, a 45-degree trimmer blade as well as Multi-fit Arc Foil that comfortably lifts and guides stubble closer to the blade. The versatile shaver can be used wet, dry, or with foam – plus, the unique water shutters allow for easy and quick maintenance. Just open the shutters to let water flow freely through the shaver head to clean the blades, without having to remove the outer foil. A multi-purpose holder can be used as either a stand for charging or storage, or as a carrying holder that protects the foil and blades and prevents the switch from being turned on by mistake. A no-slip grip handle allows the shaver to be used comfortably and safely in the shower. "Panasonic is thrilled to add the Housewares Design Award to our growing list of awards for our Arc3 Shaver and believe this will contribute to the continued success of the product," said Natalia Salazar, Product Manager, Personal Care, Panasonic Consumer Marketing Company of North America. An independent panel of judges selected the Panasonic Arc3™ ES-SL41 Men's Wet/Dry Shaver as the winner based on superior design, appearance, function and originality. The Housewares Design Awards are presented by HomeWorld Business and sponsored by The Gourmet Housewares Show at NYIGF®, Gourmet Insider Magazine and Whitford Corporation.
