The holidays are hectic enough as it is. Everyone's busy shopping, decorating, wrapping gifts, and hosting guests, leaving little time to keep up with your usual routines, including cleaning your home each week. If you could use some help in that area, it's high time you invest in a robot vacuum, which does the dirty work for you by keeping your floors free of dust and dirt.
While there's plenty of 'bots on the market, if you want the best robot vacuum money can buy, look toward the iRobot Roomba i7+. It's unlike any other robot vacuum in its class, and best of all, this usually pricey Roomba has dropped back down to its all-time low price. While it'll normally cost you upwards of $1,000, the i7+ is now on sale for the same Cyber Monday low of $699.
The Roomba i7+ is the best robot vacuum we've tested because of one innovative feature that makes it a cut above the rest: Its ability to empty itself by means of the secondary suction located in its charging base. Unlike other robot vacuums, you'll never have to remove the wads of dust and hair directly from the vacuum. Instead, you simply empty the contents into the trash directly from a sealable bag with less frequency.
It's also able to pick up 10 grams of debris in one cleaning, an impressive feat as far as suction goes. As a smart device, you'll be able to control just how long it cleans, pinpoint its location, track its progress, and order it to only clean certain rooms all from the iRobot app, or via Alexa and Google Home. Reasons like these are why the i7+ scored a perfect 10.0 in our lab testing, which doesn't happen often.
While $700 is still a big investment to make on a robot vacuum, what you're really paying for is the relief of never worrying about dirty floors again. All these extra bells and whistles, in our opinion, are just the cherry on top of the Roomba-shaped cake.
