Prime Day is a great opportunity to get some great deals on awesome tech gadgets for your home. We won’t know what’s on sale until the event actually hits, but it never hurts to be prepared by knowing what you’re after.
Right now, one of the hottest tech markets is the robot vacuum/mop. They’ve come a long way since the days of the Roomba being a sitcom joke and are sophisticated cleaning machines. They can be programmed to do their thing when you’re away, to the point where you rarely have to interact with them.
These days, you’re looking for a unit that can clean, sense obstacles, be programmed to operate at specific times, and perhaps even email you a photo of an object it’s not sure about. They have base stations that clean and sanitize the units, and some even add more water for you, creating a car wash for your vacuum.
Best Robot Vacuums to buy on Amazon Prime Day
If you’re in the market for a robot cleaner, you know how expensive they can be. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best on the market. If any of these robots are on sale on Prime Day, you’ll want to make sure you get one! Here are some of our top picks for quality robot cleaners.
ECOVACS DEEBOT X1 OMNI
Of the robot vacuum models we’ve tested, and we’ve tested a LOT of them, the Ecovacs Deebot Omni X1, reviewed here, comes out on top. It does so much that we call it a multipurpose cleaning center. It does a brilliant job of both vacuuming and mopping and has adjustable suction, motor, and water flow. It also allows you to tweak things to fit your setup through the app. The water tanks are sizeable, so you won’t have to change or clean them out often. It’s super quiet, with a long-lasting battery, and it’s supported by a great app with a solid voice assistant.
Roborock S7 Max V
The Roborock S7 Max V Ultra is a “do it all” vacuum and mop, and you can see why in my review of the S7Max V Ultra. It does a great job of cleaning your floors and includes a built-in mapping system to learn your room layout. The S7 Max V has a vibrating mopping plate, which essentially doubles the amount of scrubbing that happens, and it’s smart enough to tell the difference between your tile and carpets. The base station will remove dust and debris from the vacuum’s onboard dustbin. It’s the runner up because it cleans a teeny bit less effectively than the Deebot above, and because it’s been very hard to find in stock, though Roborock’s web store, here, seems to be the best place to find it.
Best Vac Only Unit
If you’re looking for a vacuum-only model, the iRobot Roomba j7+ is a great choice. It features smart mapping, can be programmed to spot clean certain rooms and comes with a compact Clean Base unit. It detects and avoids hazards and pet waste, and its geofencing capabilities are top-notch. It can even sense when you’re in the area and delay cleaning until later.
