Pros and cons

According to our robot vacuum expert
  • Pros:
    The low-maintenance middle brushes are suitable for vacuuming pet hair and prevent dirt from getting stuck in the nozzle.
  • Pros:
    You can control the robot vacuum easily via an app on your phone.
  • Pros:
    Thanks to the dirt detection system, the robot thoroughly cleans extra contaminated areas.
  • Con:
    If you have pets, you must empty the dust container after every use.
Product Expert robot vacuums

The iRobot Roomba e5 is the successor to the Roomba 800 series and has 5 times more suction power than the 600 series. The 2 revolving middle brushes ensure that coarse dirt won't get stuck in the nozzle and block it. That's useful, especially if you have pets. You can simply remove the dust container from the robot to rinse under the tap. This also removes the pieces of dirt from the container so the robot vacuum can retain its suction power longer. If the robot encounters more dirt with the dirt detection system, it'll make an extra lap. Do you want the robot to stay away from the kitchen when you're cooking? Use the included virtual wall to mark this area.
