Pros and cons

According to our robot vacuum expert
  • Pros:
    You can simply control the robot vacuum with an app on your phone or with Amazon Alexa.
  • Pros:
    Thanks to the extra suction brush with rotating brushes, this robot vacuum also removes pet hairs.
  • Pros:
    When the battery is empty, the robot returns to the charging dock to recharge and will continue vacuuming after the battery's fully charged.
  • Con:
    The robot, with its round shape, can't reach the corners completely during mopping, because the microfiber cloth is on the back of the robot.
  • Con:
    If you have pets, you have to empty the dust cup each time you vacuum.
Product Expert robot vacuums

With the Blaupunkt Bluebot XSmart VCBB1XS you can take good care of your floor; you can vacuum the floor and mop it at the same time. To use the mopping function you can fill the water tank with water and optionally with some soapy water. Do you have pets or a lot of carpet at home? Use the option to replace the regular suction brush with the suction brush with the rotating brushes. This brush is better equipped to remove pet hair or other dirt from your carpet. If your nose quickly tickles due to dust particles, this robot vacuum will be a great help for you. Thanks to the special HEPA filter, this robot vacuum is particularly suitable for people who suffer from a dust allergy. You easily operate the robot vacuum via the app on your phone. On this app you can follow the progress of the cleaning work and you can set the cleaning schedule.

Note: if you want to control the robot via the app, you have to use a 2.4GHz WiFi connection.

"worth it!"

By clara on 21 December 2018

  • Pros:
    robust
  • Pros:
    efficient
  • Con:
    corners
  • Con:
    noise

I am very happy with this purchase so far. It does the job quite good and of course, some features could be better like noise decibel and corners but it's more than worth it. No regrets, except that I didn't buy it earlier haha

"amazing product + value for money"

By chandan agarwal on 22 January 2019

  • Pros:
    cleans really well
  • Pros:
    easy to operate app
  • Pros:
    value for money
  • Pros:
    good suction power
  • Pros:
    easy to clean machine
  • Con:
    edges and corners
  • Con:
    mopping could be better

We have been using it since few months and its the best product that we have ever bought. We were sceptical at first when we bought it but it has proved us completely wrong. It cleans really well and sucks out the hairs pretty well. Also the mop functionality is icing on the cake.
The app is of great help. You can start, change mode and operate from distance even if you are not at home. Plus it tells you all the places it has been.
Its a life saver for us. Our only regret is not buying it before, but better late than never.

"overtreft mijn verwachting"

By Frans Simjouw on 14 July 2019

  • Pros:
    overtreft mijn verwachting
  • Pros:
    is stiller dan ik dacht
  • Pros:
    maakt goed schoon
  • Pros:
    installatie app is simpel
  • Con:
    nog niet gevonden

Doet meer dan de beschrijving op de website aangeeft. Komt wel automatisch terug op het laadstation en gaat verder waar hij gebleven is. Dacht dat ik goed schoongemaakt had. Maar bij het eerste gebruik kwam er nog behoorlijk wat vuil van de kamervloer.

worth it!

  • Pros:
    Does what it is supposed to do
  • Pros:
    Acceptable sound level
  • Pros:
    Cleans well
  • Con:
    Needed to be returned after a few uses only

The product works well. It maintains an appartment dust free very well. At the end of the cleaning cycle we are still amazed how much dust is collected. The product requires "getting into". The manual is not written from a user's perspective. The biggest opportunity for Blaupunkt with this product is to give it a personality of its own. We have already done this: we call it Botje, talk to it, are happy to see it scoot across the room and will help it get on its way again when he (it) gets stuck. A Siri-like interface with a more likeable voice will make a huge difference.
