Are Roombas worth it?
iRobot Roombas have become something of a household icon – along with Dysons, KitchenAid mixers and Le Creuset pans. There is lots of competition in the robot vacuum market now – and cordless vacuum cleaners are having surge in popularity in general, but iRobot continues to produce brilliant products that we rate highly.
Roombas do a brilliant job of cleaning your floors, you can control them with your smartphone and set them to run while you're in bed (wake up and, hey presto, the floor is clean).
Their commitment as a company to improving the engineering of their products doesn't make them cheap – indeed they are quite pricey. However, if you put high value on a low maintenance cleaning regime, they are worth the price tag. And when there's a sale, like with these Roomba Black Friday deals, it's the perfect time to shop.
Which robot vacuum is best?
We rate the iRobot Roomba 9 series the highest. It is the most expensive in the range – but for good reason: it has the best functions and does a brilliant job. However, even the cheaper models, such as the Roomba R630 does an excellent clean up.
Is Dyson better than Roomba?
For us, Dyson and Roomba stand pretty much shoulder to shoulder in terms of quality.
