Hate lugging around a heavy, bulky vacuum? We hear you — and if you have allergies or pets, you’re probably taking out that old sucker at least once every couple of days. Sure, it’s no one’s favorite way to spend an afternoon, but it has to get done, right?
While we can’t exactly make vacuuming more fun, we certainly can make it less of a chore. Robot vacs take the stress out of getting all the dirt and dust bunnies out of nooks and crannies, and you don’t even have to lift a finger. With either the push of a button (or for some newer models, the download of an app) you can have your whole house cleaned while you’re not even home.
Roomba robot vacs are the Ferraris of e-vacs, and the price often reflects that gold standard. They rarely go on sale, and when they do, you need to act fast — they never stay in stock for long. Amazon currently has several models on sale, including the beloved E5 and i7.

This is easily the most popular iRobot Roomba model among Amazon shoppers — it has amassed over 16,000 reviews. Thousands of shoppers rave about how easily and sufficiently it picks up pet hair and how thoroughly it detects dirt in both hard-to-reach and high traffic areas.
“Use every day for cat hair, litter and general dust,” one reviewer shared. “Love that it goes under my bed, coffee table and dining room table. It also glides over area rugs and goes on to clean porcelain floors. Works well on all of my carpeted rooms. It is such a time saver and the floors are always clean. Can’t live without it.”
Designed for homes with pets, this smart vac will suck up any dirt and hair left behind by your precious furbabies. Amazing for both wood floors and carpets, it can navigate under and around furniture and even steer clear of your inquisitive cat. Its Cliff Detect sensor helps it not fall down the stairs, too.
“This is one badass robot vacuum,” one of over 3,300 shoppers raved. “It did all the things I expected and more. Fun surprises: the grout in the entryway changed color so much I am fairly ashamed of my previous cleaning habits; It cleaned EVERYWHERE and found its way out of EVERYTHING; it was quieter than anticipated so didn’t traumatize our giant furry babies; my hard-to-impress partner thinks it is the best thing ever.”
The i7 has a three-stage cleaning system, and can be told to clean up messes with a simple “Roomba, clean up the crumbs under the kitchen table,” or “clean the dust out from under the bed.” It even suggests personalized schedules for cleaning, and truly becomes a member of the family — at least, according to nearly 1,300 shoppers.
“I loooooooveee the Roomba, does a fantastic job keeping my floors clean,” one shopper noted. “I have young kids and worry about cleanliness but vacuuming during the weekends was turning into a burden. The Roomba stepped in to be a lifesaver. “
This ultra-smart vac doesn’t just clean up after your messes — it even knows to clean up after itself. It empties itself into an automatic dirt disposal, which can hold up to 60 days’ worth of dust and dirt. It learns and maps your home, too, so it knows which areas need more attention (like your entryway and kitchen) and even knows to avoid pet bowls and ledges.
“My wife complained to me, fairly, about how much I do not help her around the house,” one shopper lamented. “So I said I would handle the vacuuming every week. So I bought this Roomba because I knew I was not going to keep that promise. I can honestly say this is the BEST $800 I ever spent. It does a fantastic job cleaning up. We have a long hair cat that sheds a lot and it picks up the hair with no problem. To the guys out there: Make your wife happy and save yourself the trouble. Get one of these.”
