There is nothing like a robot vacuum to keep your floors clean with minimal human interaction. Although these devices were a novelty a decade ago, they've become very common nowadays and offer valuable help in our daily lives. Most are controlled using an app and smart speakers, allowing you to launch them while performing other tasks or without leaving your couch.

In the beginning, iRobot was on the market with its Roomba robot vacuums. Since then, a handful of brands have launched an impressive number of competing products that often surpass iRobot's Roombas.

With so many options to pick from, we've handpicked the best robot vacuums to help you find the right one for you. The list includes various models, ranging from affordable sweepers — which are plenty enough for a daily clean — to much more sophisticated devices that can mop and remove stains in full autonomy.

Our top recommendations for the best robot vacuums in 2023

Dreametech L10s Ultra
Best overall

Premium, powerful, and feature rich

The Dreametech L10S Ultra packs almost everything you want from a robot vacuum. It has a high 5300Pa suction power, an auto-empty station, and a mopping function. It also works with Alexa voice assistant.

  • Set it and forget it approach
  • Vacuums and mops and at the same time
  • Excellent navigation
  • No extra consumables included
  • Mopping isn't perfect

The Dreametech L10s Ultra is, together with the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra, the most advanced robot vacuum available on the market. It has impressive suction power, two spinning brushes to clean and mop your floors, advanced navigation features, and obstacle detection. The L10s Ultra can also clean its mops and automatically empty the dirty water and dust in the dock's appropriate tanks.

Similarly, it can automatically go back to its station to refill its clean water tank, which the station automatically mixes with a cleaning solution. Dreametech designed its self-emptying and self-cleaning station with care and integrated the tanks vertically to save space, making it a nice addition to your living room. It's our favorite and most recommended option, provided you have the budget for it.

Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra
Premium pick

Your robot vacuum splurge

If you want to enjoy almost hands-free cleaning, there is no better option than the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra. It costs a pretty penny but offers tons of quality of life features.

  • Powerful suction
  • Accurate mapping and obstacle avoidance
  • Expensive
  • Too many consumable accessories

The Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra is lavishly expensive, but it's also the most powerful and easiest-to-use robot vacuum we've ever tested. If you have a combination of hard flooring and carpet, it can clean it all. Best of all, you barely have to touch the robot, thanks to its base station, which can handle the dirty water and dust for a while without being emptied.

With its advanced app, it can detect obstacles, avoid specific areas and recognize rooms. It does cost an arm and a leg, though, so you'll have to consider whether you really hate mopping and cleaning the old-fashioned way. Lastly, its design is a bit too close to a garbage bin, making it a dubious addition to your living area.

Dreametech D9
Best value

A low-cost but dependable option

The Dreametech D9 is one of the most affordable robot vacuum and mop combo. At under $200, it brings LiDAR mapping, 3000Pa suction power, and a decent companion app.

  • Works with both hardwood floors and carpets
  • LiDAR provides accurate mapping
  • No extra consumables in the box
  • Mopping is basic

The Dreametech D9 probably offers one of the best values, as it can both mop and vacuum simultaneously while being affordable. In addition, its built-in LIDAR helps it create a detailed map of your house, letting you send it to specific rooms and areas.

Its 3,000Pa suction power and mopping capability allow it to leave your floors clean and shiny. That being said, its mopping features are basic and can't rival the ones offered by more premium devices. However, the price difference makes the Dreametech D9 particularly attractive since it can do an excellent job at sweeping and mopping your floors.

If you don't mind manually emptying its dust bin and washing its mop, the D9 is a nice option that offers great value for money.

iRobot Roomba S9+
Efficient cleaning

The most advanced Roomba around

$799 $999 Save $200

The iRobot Roomba S9+ has a ton going for it. From intelligent navigation to powerful suction, it has everything you need in a top-notch robot vacuum.

  • Powerful suction
  • Fantastic cleaning
  • Expensive
  • Loud

The s9+ is one of the most expensive Roombas. It's also the one with the best cleaning efficiency, thanks to its advanced edge cleaning and dual plastic brushes that are perfect for removing pet hair. Its app is well-designed, with advanced recommendations and the ability to create maps and define rooms.

Although it comes with a self-emptying base, it lacks mopping features and obstacle detection, meaning you should consider other options if your floors are often covered with dust and need mopping.

Ecovacs Deebot N10 Plus
Solid mid-range pick

A robot vacuum that does it all

$550 $650 Save $100

The Ecovas Deebot N10 Plus is an excellent mid-range robot vacuum and mop combo with an auto-empty station, 3800Pa suction power, and LiDAR-based navigation. It also supports the Alexa voice assistant.

  • Powerful suction
  • Great companion app
  • Mopping isn't great

The Ecovacs Deebot N10 Plus is a feature-rich vacuum and mop combo that doesn't cost as much as some of the more expensive robot vacuums among our recommendations. One of its highlights is the included auto-empty station, which ensures you don't need to empty its dust bin every few days. The auto-empty station can store dirt and debris for up to 60 days. But unfortunately, this feature doesn't make the robot vacuum completely hands-free, as you'll still need to clean the mop attachment regularly if you use the mop function.

In other features, its 3800Pa suction is good enough for a thorough cleaning, and the LiDAR-based navigation system is excellent at mapping and navigating your home. You'll also be happy to know that the Deebot N10 Plus supports Alexa voice assistant and has a pretty great companion app. But sadly, its mopping leaves much to be desired, and the N10 Plus is only suitable for basic mopping.

iRobot Roomba Combo j7+
With unique retractable mop

The Roomba to get if you want vacuum and mop

$900 $1100 Save $200

Roomba Combo j7+ sits stop iRobot’s robot vacuum lineup and is a premium offering. It includes a self-empty station, camera-based navigation, and a retractable mop.

  • Retractable mop is nifty
  • Companion app is user-friendly
  • Small mop pad
  • Water tank requires frequent refilling

The Roomba Combo j7+ is iRobot's most advanced smart vacuum and mop combo, which features advanced navigation, allowing it to detect obstacles and recognize carpets. It's the first of its kind to feature an articulated mop that can automatically lift itself up to be stowed atop the robot when needed, such as when encountering a carpet. It also features iRobot's famous dual rubber brushes, which help to capture debris without letting hair get tangled around them. There's also a side brush to clean corners.

It's designed to be fully autonomous, meaning it ships with a self-emptying base that can be used for about two months without manual intervention. However, just like the Shark model, the base doesn't clean the mop pad, so you'll have to do that yourself with this product.

Even though it's not as complete as the Dreame L10s ultra and the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra, it has a much more compact and eye-pleasing design and does an excellent job at vacuuming and mopping your floors, as long as you don't need it to clean its mop without manual intervention.

Shark AI Ultra 2in1
Multifunctional and dependable

High on features, low on price

$550 $700 Save $150

The Shark AI Ultra is a reliable mid-range vacuum and mop combo that has no trouble navigating thanks to the LiDAR mapping. It also comes with an auto-empty station that reduces the hands-on time with the robot vacuum.

  • Long battery life
  • Great navigation skills
  • Auto empty doesn?t always work properly

The Shark AI Ultra 2in1 is an advanced and powerful robot that can vacuum and mop at the same time. It's designed to rival high-end products like the Dreametech L10s Ultra and the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra while costing about half their retail price.

Shark says it delivers impeccable cleaning results thanks to its smart mapping technology, which uses several passes and avoids missed spots. In addition, it can use air blasts to remove debris from corners and vacuum them on the way. Similarly, it features a sonic mopping technology that helps get rid of hard stains. Regarding the brushes, Shark uses flexible silicone fins that help it catch debris while preventing hair from getting wrapped around the brush.

It also features smart AI navigation and object detection, helping it avoid carrying your shoes around the house and bumping into objects left on the floor.

Unfortunately, though, it doesn't use the same smart approach as its rivals when it comes to the mop; you have to dampen and wash it yourself, unlike the Roborock and Dreametech flagships models.

Ultenic T10
An affordable all-rounder

A value for money vacuum and mop combo

Ultenic T10 is competitively priced for its feature set. It comes with an auto-empty station, mopping support, and a decent app. In addition, you get a LiDAR sensor for effective mapping.

  • Great feature set for the pricing
  • LiDAR sensor and auto-empty station
  • Basic mopping
  • Struggles on carpets

The Ultenic T10 is an excellent all-rounder that's priced fairly. It vacuums floors effectively and can even mop them after creating a detailed map of your house. Its station lets you set it and forget about it for a while, as the 4.3L dust bag can last for months without emptying. The app is also pretty intuitive and lets you control and customize it remotely.

Of course, the T10 also works seamlessly with Google Home and Alexa for an improved smart home experience. Sadly, the T10's mopping features are relatively basic and can't compare with the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra, which costs more than twice the price.

Roborock Q5+
Reliable and easy to use

High-performing mid-range robot vacuum

The Roborock Q5+ is among the best-performing robot vacuums in its price range and delivers a reliable performance. It also packs a self-empty station but lacks mopping support.

  • Good cleaning performance
  • Excellent navigation
  • Lacks mopping support

The Roborock Q5+ splits the difference between entry-level vacuums and the ultra-premium versions priced at over a grand. At $700, the Q5+ is no impulse purchase, but it's one of the best robot vacuums you can get, as long as you don't need mopping features. Its well-designed app allows you to create rooms and set virtual boundaries without requiring physical objects.

The Q5+ is also good at avoiding obstacles, meaning you won't have to clean everything up before launching it. It's significantly more expensive than the Ultenic T10 without offering wet cleaning features. Still, it comes with better navigation and obstacle detection, making it a better purchase if you want to avoid your robot being stuck between chair legs.

It's also available without the bundled auto-emptying dock, helping you save about $250 on its price, in case you don't mind emptying its dust bin frequently.

Eufy RoboVac G30 Edge
A great starter robot vacuum

Quiet, compact, and easy to use

$270 $290 Save $20

Eufy's RoboVac G30 Edge is a good starter robot vacuum. It lacks a lot of advanced features but includes the basics. It's also slim and uses gyroscope-enabled navigation.

  • Voice assistant support
  • Slim build
  • Quiet operation
  • No LiDAR-based navigation
  • Lacks mopping support

The RoboVac G30 Edge is one of the more affordable robot vacuums that is ideal for an apartment or as a secondary robot vacuum for another floor. While it lacks many of the features found in more expensive options, it is relatively quiet, and its slim design ensures it can clean under low-height furniture.

Its 2000Pa suction provides a decent amount of power to remove dirt, debris, and pet hair from your floors. And the dual gyroscope-enabled navigation works pretty well. You can also use boundary stripes to exclude areas you don't want the vacuum to go.

Lastly, the G30 Edge supports both Alexa and Google Assistant. Plus, you get an app to control it.

Wyze Robot Vacuum
Excellent budget option with LiDAR mapping

Surprisingly great for its price

Wyze's first robot vacuum punches out of its weight class and offers features typically not found in its price bracket, including LiDAR mapping. It also delivers good cleaning performance.

  • Relatively affordable
  • Includes LiDAR mapping
  • No voice assistant support
  • Dirt compartment is small

Wyze is no stranger to smart home devices, so its first robot vacuum has no significant issues that often first-generation products. One of the Wyze Robot Vacuum's biggest selling points is the LiDAR mapping support that isn't typically found in its price bracket. Once it has successfully mapped your home, it'll have no trouble navigating and cleaning it.

Its suction is rated at 2100Pa and can effectively collect dirt, debris, and pet hair. The vacuum also supports most surfaces, including hardwood and high-pile carpets. In terms of battery life, you can last up to 110 minutes, and if it runs low in the middle of the job, it'll return to the charging station, juice up, and get back to cleaning.

Unfortunately, its dirt compartment is very small, and there is no Alexa or Google Assistant support. But you do get an excellent companion app.

eufy robovac 30c
eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 30C
Basic but effective

Reliable cleaning under $300

$225 $299 Save $74

Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 30C is a decent robot vacuum for basic cleaning. While it lacks mopping support and an auto-empty station, it performs well on a bare floor.

  • Decent performance on hardwood and other bare floors
  • Good battery life
  • Lacks LiDAR sensor or mopping support
  • Needs boundary strips for no-go zones

The RoboVac 30C is relatively basic in the sense that it doesn't come with a self-emptying station like the other options. It also doesn't have the same advanced navigation features. In addition, its app is less advanced, as you'll have to use physical boundary strips to prevent the vacuum from entering specific areas. That said, it's an affordable option that can be controlled remotely, making it worth considering if you have a limited budget.

It also cleans dust and debris pretty well but struggles with pet hair, particularly on carpets. However, the battery life is one of its high points, and it can easily last over an hour on the "Maximum Power" setting. Finally, the Eufy robot vacuum has a good build quality and is relatively lightweight to carry if you want to take it to another floor.

Pick the right one for you

With so many options, it may be hard to know which device is the right one for you, so we've added them based on different needs to make it easier to choose.

If a basic sweeper is enough for you, the Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 30 can be sufficient to give your floors a daily sweep. But if you want a robot vacuum with more capability, the Dreametech D9 and Ultenic T10 are excellent all-rounders with plenty of suction power to suck up dirt and hair while also mopping your floors.

If you need advanced vacuuming without mopping, the Roomba s9+ and Roborock Q5+ are powerful options, especially if you have carpets at home or live in a particularly dusty environment.

For an ultimate cleaning experience, consider the Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra or Dreametech L10s Ultra. Both are brilliant products to keep your floors clean due to their powerful suction, built-in mopping, self-cleaning capabilities, advanced navigation, and object detection. If they're too expensive for you, the Shark AI Ultra 2in1 and Roomba Combo j7+ cost a bit less but don't come with the added benefit of a full-feature self-cleaning docking station that can wash the mop.
