iRobot Roomba 694 — $250, was $274

iRobot Roomba 694 Robot Vacuum using smart sensing to focus on dirt and debris.

Why Buy

  • Dual multi-surface brushes
  • Auto height adjusting head
  • Just 3.6-inches tall
  • iRobot Genius Home Intelligence system

The iRobot Roomba 694 was the finest pick in 2021. How’s it holding up? Pretty well considering you probably want the same things in 2023 that you did in the midst of the pandemic: Ease, comfort, and great cleaning. Using the iRobot Roomba 694 is, as is the case with most robot vacuums, fairly straightforward, but you’ll be extra pleased by the iRobot Roomba 694’s use of the iRobot Genius Home Intelligence system that provides intelligent mapping and pathing to get things clean right the first time through. You’ll also see great cleaning come forth via the dual multi-surface brushes and head that automatically adjust to the best height for whatever surface it is on. Plus, at just 3.6-inches in height, the iRobot Roomba 694 will be able to get under sofas, entertainment centers, desks, and dining tables. What a great way to start your Roomba journey!

iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO — $416, was $550

iRobot Roomba i3 Plus cleaning a wooden floor.

Why Buy

  • Smart cleaning
  • Powerful suction
  • Convenient self-emptying
  • Rubber brushes

The iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO is a robot vacuum that you may sort of recollect with some bonus features in its software. The “EVO” in the name signifies the addition of more advanced mapping tools to the iRobot Roomba i3+. As a result, it provides the powerful suction, reduced clogging via rubber cleaning brushes, and convenient self-emptying you are used to and adds in more smarts. One of the coolest smart abilities is Dirt Detection, where the iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO will pause its usual row-by-row cleaning style and spend extra time on the parts of your house that actually need it. The other is Cliff Detect, which protects your Roomba from falling down the stairs or running under guard rails and falling onto someone’s head. Finally, you’ll quickly come to appreciate the iRobot Roomba i3+ EVO’s rubber brush cleaning heads, which don’t get the same hair clogging that traditional plastic brush ones do.

iRobot Roomba 692 — $224, was $300

The iRobot Roomba 692 cleans the kitchen floor.

Why Buy

  • Multi-surface brushes
  • Works with Alexa and Google Assistant
  • Plans around you
  • Seasonal cleaning suggestions

The Roomba 692 is one of the smartest of the bunch and is rather powerful. You’ll really like how it both navigates around your schedule — which it picks up on its own — and seasonal cleaning necessities. For example, when it is “shedding season” for your pet dog it might ask to start cleaning in a different way to suit your personal needs better. Or, if you stay in during the mornings it will plan its daily cleaning pattern for later in the afternoon. It plans its cleaning around you! But, if you want to direct it to clean while you’re on the spot, you can do so easily via an Alexa on your Amazon Echo or your Google Assistant. But the Roomba 692 is more than just a smart device, it is also a powerful cleaning tool. With two types of brushes, your Roomba 692 will suck up both the fine dust and the larger visible debris that litter your floor. Again, it is all about fitting to what you, as an individual, need.

iRobot Roomba i1+ — $228, was $530

Why Buy

  • Provides a focused clean
  • Completely forgettable
  • Rubber brush cleaning system
  • Plans around your schedule

We love this iRobot Roomba i1+ deal so much that we included it our monthly roundup of the best robot vacuum deals as our Roomba representative. What makes it so interesting? Your iRobot Roomba i1+ is a “totally forgettable” machine. At this point, dumping stations and the ability to learn your habits and plans around you are pretty standard with the Roomba brand, but this one goes an extra step. Where the 692 (above) uses a traditional bristle brush, the iRobot Roomba i1+ uses purely rubber brushes. They just don’t get stuck with pet (and long human) hair in the same manner. The result is a basically maintenance-free experience where you only have to empty out its auto dirt disposal base every 60 days or so.

iRobot Roomba 676 — $174, was $270

The iRobot Roomba 676 smart robot vacuum.

Why Buy

  • Budget pricing
  • Works with pet hair
  • Smart mapping
  • Standard Roomba sensor kit

Dirt cleaned, dirt cheap. I have a theory that the people, like me, that go looking for the best (regular) vacuum cleaners instead of the best robot vacuum cleaners all do so because they’re looking for a reasonable price. What they don’t know can hurt them, as the Roomba 676 is a great choice at a worthy price. When you look at budget, you worry about losing value, but what value is really lost here? The Roomba 676 still works fine with pet hair and has the same Roomba sensor kit, including Dirt Detect and Cliff Detect, that more expensive models on this list utilize. You can even yell at your smart home device to get it to clean pronto, where it will use the quality of smart mapping you expect from Roomba. In other words, don’t let the budget pricing affect how you feel about the Roomba 676 if you end up picking one up. Instead of thinking you got the little guy, reframe it mentally as getting a fully-featured robot vacuum at a great price and you’ll converge a lot more on reality.
