iRobot Roomba 694 Robot Vacuum
Out of the 35 robot vacuums we tested, we awarded this model from iRobot as the best overall pick for its ability to successfully clean up messes and ease of use. During testing, the Roomba 694 Robot Vacuum was able to lift up all our testing debris with ease, including hair, sand, and cereal. The robot vacuum comes with an app that allows you to schedule cleanings, or you can choose the schedule as suggested by your robot vacuum, which starts to generate once it has a good understanding of your home’s dirt and pet hair levels. It’s also equipped with technology to avoid falling down stairs and during our testing, was able to maneuver itself around our furniture.

Eufy RoboVac X8 Hybrid
This convenient robot and mop combo allows you to vacuum and mop at the same time, giving you less work to do around the house. It also has a unique dust bin that works to compress whatever it picks up, so you don’t have to empty the dustbin in between each cleaning.

Thamtu G10 Robot Vacuum
This robot vacuum has incredible suction power, clocking in at 2700 Pa (Pa, otherwise known as Pascal Pressure Unit, measures the suction power of a vacuum.) Robot vacuums on the market are often 2000 Pa or less. This enhanced suction power enables it to be able to clean a wide variety of floors effectively, including tile, hardwood floors, and carpets. Multiple reviewers mention that it’s great for pet hair, with one explaining how much this vacuum improved the overall cleanliness of their home. “We have dark cherry flooring and pet hair is always an issue, or better say WAS an issue.” One reviewer said that it “gets up more dirt than I knew my house could ever have! Every single day!” The Thamtu G10 Robot Vacuum comes with a remote and smartphone app, the latter of which allows you to change modes and schedule.

iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO Self-Emptying Robot Vacuum
What stands out about this iRobot Roomba is that instead of bristle brushes, it boasts two rubber brushes. The benefit of that is rubber tends to be better at grabbing hair and is less likely to get tangled up in rolls. Reviewers agree, with multiple saying that this helped them tremendously, especially with pet hair. One reviewer, who said they have two pets that constantly shed, was “shocked at how much fuzz and hair it picked up.” Another reviewer who was “super happy with the purchase” has five dogs at home, and therefore “made me think it will not matter what robot I will have, I thought I would be disappointed anyways as the amount of hair is too much. I have to say I got proven wrong.” Plus, you don’t have to empty the pet hair or any other debris it picks up for 60 days thanks to its self-emptying mechanism.

Samsung Jet Bot+ Robot Vacuum with Clean Station
This sleek robot vacuum has a lot going for it. First, it has a five-layer filtration system that is able to trap nearly 100 percent of dust in your home. Second, it boasts sensors that can create maps of your home entirely on its own. You can assist with the creation of your home’s map on the corresponding app as well as set up virtual barriers, so your robot doesn’t go to places you don’t want in your home. It also detects whether it’s on carpeting or hard floors and adjusts its suction power accordingly. What’s more, the Jet Bot+ comes with extractors that grind up long hair so they don’t get stuck on the brush roll.

Ecovacs Deebot N8 Pro+
We tested 35 different robot vacuums and found this one to be the robot vacuum and mop combo. The Evovacs Deebot N8 Pro+was the most effective at mopping up liquid messes than other robot and vacuum mops we tested, effectively washing up spills such as coffee and syrup. It was able to pick up all of our debris, wet or dry, in just two minutes. You can use the vacuuming and mopping function at the same time, and with the self-emptying base, which comes with dust bags, you don’t have to come in direct contact with any of the dirt or dust it sucks up.

It also offers greater suction power at 2500 Pa, has a larger-than-average dustbin of roughly 2 cups, , and even has a defined climbing limit at 0.8 inches, which lets it navigate carpets and padding without issue. Plus, it’s so smart that if it starts to get too low on battery and returns to charge, it will remember where it left off and go back to that spot when it’s ready to go again.
