Everyone knows that vacuuming is at the very bottom of the totem pole when it comes common household chores. Lugging a heavy vacuum around the house and trying to maneuver the cord each time you’d like to clean a different section of a room is tedious and tiresome. Unfortunately it’s one of the most essential tasks to keep a tidy home that’s free of dust bunnies, dirt, debris and the like. But one thing that can make vacuuming, and therefore your life, way easier, is a robot vacuum.
Right now you can get the popular iRobot Roomba 860 Robotic Vacuum for just $269.99 as a Deal of the Day on Amazon. This is the lowest price we’ve even seen for this make and model, which usually retails for almost double that amount (around a whopping $450!). This deal only lasts until midnight tonight, so if you’ve been considering buying a robot vacuum to help you out around the house while you’re outside enjoying the summer weather, now might be the best time to scoop one up.
The Roomba 860 was designed with both carpets and hard floors in mind to loosen and lift away crumbs, pet hair, and whatever other particles that might be hiding in the nooks and crannies of your home. The cleaning head automatically adjusts depending on the surface it’s on, so its brushes are always in close contact with the floor. It’s also a smart robot in the sense that when it’s running low on battery, it will automatically dock itself and recharge. Aka—you won’t have to deal with vacuuming yourself when you’re in a pinch.
Though we haven’t tested the 860 quite just yet, Jonathan Chan, our resident robot vacuum expert had this to say about it: “iRobot is a pretty trustworthy brand. I’ve seen how they test robot vacuums and they do a thorough job. I think the Roomba 860 is a great deal for someone with pets. It comes with a dual-mode barrier which has “halo” mode which creates a virtual that’s circular, perfect for protecting pet bowls from a robot vacuum.”
Overall, if you’re looking for an easy-to-operate, durable robot vacuum with solid cleaning power, you can’t go wrong with the iRobot Roomba 860, especially given this sale price probably won’t come around again anytime soon.
