The cleaning system uses a cleaning cartridge to clean the electric shaver. Depending upon how often you run the cleaner it can be good for up to 30 uses. After that you will need to purchase more detergent cartridges. It is really simple to clean your shave with this system. You just put in the shaver and select your course. The courses are Charge, Clean/Dry/Charge, and Dry/Charge. Depending upon the course chosen it can take over 2 hours to go through the complete cycle.

There is also the option of manually cleaning. Manually cleaning using what is called the sonic vibration cleaning mode. Basically you just put some liquid soap and water on the foil, and then hold the on/off switch to access the cleaning mode. It runs for about 20 seconds then shuts down. Then you take off the head and while holding it under running water run the sonic vibration cleaning mode again. It is as simple as that. You will need to dry it with a cloth.

Noise Level

The ES-LA93-K is a pretty quiet shaver; it just has your typical electric shaver buzzing. The cleaning system can be a bit noisy during the cleaning cycle.

The cleaning system is a bit load, and it takes a long time to go through the cycles. Also you have the reoccurring cost of more detergent cartridges.
