The 7 Best Robot Vacuums (2020): For Every Home and Budget


In the past few years, no gadget that I’ve tested has advanced as quickly as the humble robot vacuum. Once a niche consumer device, you can now find robot vacuums at every price point with an incredible array of features, from mapping capabilities, self-emptying bins, and even cameras—all to help you keep grit from sticking to your bare feet when you walk on your floor.

Over the years, we’ve tested dozens of robot vacuums to find the one that’s best suited for your needs. Whether you’re drowning in dog hair, need to lighten your chore load, or just want to spend a little more time with your family, we have a pick that might help. Looking for other handy home items?
