Vacuum cleaning is one of the more tedious forms of housework out there, so why not buy a robotic vacuum cleaner to take out all the effort? Here’s our pick of the bunch.
Recently, robotic vacuum cleaners have lowered in price enough that they’re far more accessible to all than they used to be. For less than $200, you can buy a competent unit that will keep your home clean and tidy, while extending that budget will provide you with a few more useful features along the way.
Many different brands are available but we’ve focused on Eufy and Roomba based units because they’re easily the best of the bunch. Eufy robotic vacuum cleaners overall are a little better than the Roombas, but it’s not always as easy to track down parts for them so if you need to consider long term usability, you might want to stick with Roombas.
Whichever robotic vacuum cleaner you go for, don’t spend time watching it work. It takes away all the magic. Seriously. Few robotic vacuum cleaners are that bright and if you watch them, you’re going to notice them bang into things and the whole thing seems way less cooler than if you just come home and find your little robot helper has cleaned up for you.
Regardless, here are the best robotic vacuum cleaner for every budget.
Best Budget Choice: Eufy RoboVac 11S ($169)
Super quiet yet super powerful when it comes to suction, the Eufy RoboVac 11S is exactly what most homes require. It has a suction power of 1300Pa with up to 100 minutes of constant power until it needs to head back to its charging station. It has a BoostIQ button which increases suction power as and when needed, as well as a few other options so you can leave it to do its business.
