Arc3 Named a "Best in Category" Winner
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.  Judging is managed exclusively by Housewares
Design Awards LLC.
