Pros and cons

According to our robot vacuum expert
  • The low-maintenance center brushes are suitable for vacuuming pet hairs and prevent dirt from sticking in the suction brush.
  • You can control the robot via an app on your phone and via Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
  • Thanks to the dirt detection system, the robot thoroughly cleans extra dirty areas.
  • If you have pets, you must empty the dust container after every use.

Description

The iRobot Roomba e5 has strong suction power. The 2 updated rolling brushes prevent coarse dirt from getting stuck in the suction brush and blocking it. This is especially useful if you have pets. You can easily remove the dust cup from the robot and rinse it under the faucet. That way, you can also get rid of the fine dust it has collected and you'll make sure the robot retains its suction power longer. If the robot with the dirt detection system runs into more dirt, it will cover that bit again. Want the robot to keep out of the kitchen while you're cooking? Use the included virtual wall to mark out this area. You can set this via the app.

iRobot Home app

An important advantage of the iRobot Home app is that you can fully personalize every cleaning job. You put together your cleaning schedules per room in the house. The Robot Status Card shows the estimated cleaning time and the elapsed cleaning time per room. It's possible to pause or locate the robot if it's stuck.

      Good for everysay maintanance especially if you have a dog
    • Con:
      Too rough with carpets (makes more mess than cleans)

    Overall pleased with the purchase

    Lukas Mech | 11 March 2019

    • Pros:
      Good suction
    • Con:
      Unable to direct it to a specific spot

    Sometimes disorganised way of moving around - often covering some spots multiple times but not getting to different ones
