I know, I’m a little late to the robot vacuum game, but I’m not one to buy a “fancy” appliance until I deem it a necessity. Well, it’s finally become a necessity — I was sick of vacuuming my wood floors every day but it’s also barefoot season, and I hate walking around the house with socks on in the summer. So when a family member asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I practically screamed, “A robot vacuum!”
Nobody wants to spend the big bucks on the classic Roomba (great though it may be), so I opted for the eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 11S. After Amazon’s $30 coupon offer, the total for this little guy comes in at about $190, cheaper than the Roomba’s $250+ price tag. It’s slim enough to fit under most furniture, the dustbin is spacious enough that you don’t have to empty it all the time, and the vacuum will even navigate back to its charging dock when it’s low on power. My only complaint is that it can’t walk up stairs!
In terms of suction power, this vacuum does a good job as long as the sweeper brush doesn’t get too clogged. I do usually keep mine on the higher suction power, but the lower one works totally fine as well. This vacuum also gets pet hair off of carpets, which THRILLED me because that was a huge reason I had to vacuum and sweep my floors daily.
We got a eufy robo vac today and I tried it out. As it quietly sucked up the fog and cat hair and general debris on my floor (it works great) I couldn’t help feeling like the robot was tsking me about the mess. Do robots judge??? pic.twitter.com/zqBh9kSd9i

We bought a Eufy 11s robo vac (I think paid $200 on prime day) and so far I’ve been quite happy with it. Time will tell of course on durability, but it does vacuum up quite a bit of stuff

The eufy RoboVac also does a decent job in terms of coverage, though this will depend a lot on your floor plan. You can tell the vacuum to either spot clean, clean the whole room, or just do the perimeter. You can also schedule the vacuum to clean at certain times, and you can put a timer on it. When you want it to go charge, just push the designated button on the remote and it’ll self-navigate to its charging port (which I never fail to find so cool). It also holds a pretty decent charge of 90+ minutes, so it’s unlikely to run out of power before it’s finished, unless your house is ginormous.
Overall I love this RoboVac! I’m no longer sweeping and vacuuming daily, and yes, it gets the job done. If you don’t already have a robotic vacuum, go grab this one!
I second the robo vac idea – my Eufy was sent from the gods
