If you’re looking into buying one, one of the first things you’ll see is a large variety in features as well as price.

So, which robot vacuum should you buy? It really depends on which features matter to you most.

With this robot vacuum, you don’t have to worry about emptying the dustbin. It’s able to empty itself with its automatic dirt disposal mechanism. The Roomba i7+ empties itself into the base, which can hold 30 bins’ worth of dust. If it vacuums daily, you can go an entire month without emptying it. Like its predecessor, this vacuum clears 99% of pet hair and other allergens. It’s also able to map your home and you can direct it to clean specific rooms at specific times.

What sets it apart: You can use it for a month without worrying about emptying the contents.

Combining two vital cleaning processes in one, the Narwal is the future of home cleaning – this clever system actually cleans itself.

Because it cleans itself, it’s fully automatic so you truly don’t even need to lift a finger. In fact, Narwal washes, rinses, and dries the mop itself with no human intervention required. With a 5-liter water tank, you also don’t have to worry about continuously refilling the device.

This autonomous cleaning device utilizes five times the air power of its predecessor for a deeper clean.

Let it move on its own or use the iRobot HOME App to schedule cleaning, monitor the Roomba 960, and more on the go.

What sets it apart: It tracks its location to make sure every area of the house is covered.

In fact, you can use the Coral One to clean many different surfaces, including countertops, sofas, mattresses, and curtains. Using an internal computer, the vacuum robot easily navigates through your home. Likewise, the sensors prevent it from bumping into things and help it establish the most efficient cleaning path.

What sets it apart: If you don’t want to rely solely on a robot to keep things clean, this is the best option for you.

eufy RoboVac 30 Smart Vacuum

The device works with boundary strips so you can specifically map out the areas that you want it to clean. The BoostIQ technology automatically increases suction power within 1.5 seconds for when extra vacuuming strength is required for the best clean. Despite its power, the suction volume remains quiet and is no louder than a microwave. In addition, the RoboVac 30 features an anti-scratch tempered glass-top cover for protection, an infrared-sensor for evading obstacles, and drop-sensing technology to avoid falls.

What sets it apart: Thanks to the boundary strips, you can actually map out the areas you want to deep clean.

ECOVACS DEEBOT Slim 2 Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

Offering 110 minutes of run time and impressively low height, the DEEBOT Slim 2 is suitable for large and small spaces. Thanks to its low-profile design, the robotic vacuum cleaner easily accesses underneath your furniture and covers a larger area. It also features tangle-free suction while efficiently cleaning debris, dirt, and hair. You can also use the vacuum as a mop to deep clean your floors. Additionally, the DEEBOT Slim 2 provides different cleaning mode options including Auto Mode, Edge Mode, and Spot Mode.

Additionally, its main brush has V-type bristles, offering a rotation speed of 1350 revolutions per minute. The side Z-form brushes provide a rotation speed of 330 revolutions per minute.

What sets it apart: This robot can actually plan its cleaning routes independently.

Mopet Microfiber Robot Vacuum Mop

Working for an impressive six hours at a time, this friendly little helper sweeps away the dirt from every nook and cranny. It vacuums up dust and pollen, leaving your floor squeaky clean. Because Mopet is just 8.75 inches wide, it can get under beds and between bookcases. In addition, this adorable robot comes with face stickers for a touch of personality. The microfiber brush on the underside is also easy to clean. You can also put your favorite oil-based scents on the brush to spread beautiful aromas throughout your home.
