Pros and cons

According to our robot vacuum expert
  • The systematic cleaning route ensures the robot doesn't skip any parts.
  • You can easily control this robot via your mobile phone.
  • The robot also cleans under your bed and couch, because it's flat with a height of 6cm.
  • With a capacity of less than 0.25L the dust collector is relatively small and you'll have to empty it regularly.

Description

The Rowenta Explorer Series 60 RR7447 robot vacuum has a mopping function. This means it'll wipe the floor with a wet cloth right after vacuuming. So you get two birds with one stone. You'll only have to attach the mop and fill the tank with soapy water. The specially designed brush for pet hairs makes the robot ideal for households with pets. Plan the schedule for your robot at the beginning of the week with the app, so you won't have to do anything with it for the rest of the week. Even more so because the robot vacuum drives itself back to the base station when the battery is empty. The robot vacuum does its job for 150 minutes on a full battery.

    Vacuum function top, mop function flop

    Difje | 11 August 2020 | In the version: With area delimination and longer battery life | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Vacuum function
    • fall detection
    • Height - gets below everything
    • Control via app
    • Operation also possible on the device itself
    • Mopping function, just a wet cloth that drags across the floor
    • App slow and info activities is wrong
    • Does not automatically resume after loading
    • No virtual walls or map
    • The mop function again

    First impression:
    When unpacking the robot vacuum cleaner, its beautiful design was the first thing I noticed.
    Then a very easy installation based on the brief manual that came with it. It was not necessary to read the extensive manual, to be able to start quickly.

    The app:
    Then I installed the app on my Android device, just scan the QR code. The app has proven to be very useful to control the robot, because you can do this from the comfort of your home, even if the vacuum cleaner is in another room. With the controls you can turn on the device, determine how you want it to drive (methodically, only along the walls, on-the-spot), determine the intensity, locate it and let it drive back to its charging station. For those who prefer, you can also operate the robot on the device itself. It is also possible to add a schedule, if you want the device to start at a specific time.
    However, I also noticed negative points about the app. It is possible to see the activities of the device, such as in how much time how many m² it has covered. But I don't see this info until the next day. This all seems to be going very slowly, like it's updating all the time. There is also a maintenance menu in which you can see the distance traveled, number of cleaning sessions and usage time. This is to determine when maintenance of the device is necessary. This also doesn't seem to work 100% since the distance traveled is still 0km, despite the robot driving here every day. I just clean it after every two sessions. This doesn't require a lot of effort. Only removing the long hairs from the brushes requires a little more attention.

    Vacuuming:
    Since I am an avid cleaner, I was surprised at how much was in the dust container the first time I let the device do its job. The photo shows how much dust/hair was absorbed on the first floor of my duplex apartment (first floor = 50m²). So very nice result. Another advantage when vacuuming is the fact that there are two brushes at the front instead of one, as you often see with other cheaper brands. Everything is also well recorded. If it's not the first time, then it will be when the device does its second tour. I let him do the ground floor every morning until his battery is flat (then he has been everywhere, in some places 2x), then charge, and in the evening the upper floor. At the top floor, he notices the stairs without any problem and turns around in time (fall detection). That was exciting in the beginning.
    All I have to do is raise the chairs for vacuuming. The device moves more easily over the doormats. At first I was afraid that the robot would bump into my white high-gloss kitchen, but wide items are recognized in time and then it turns around. It does bump into narrow items such as table legs, but not so hard that there is damage. The robot vacuum cleaner just doesn't hit under my seat, but it does under my bed. Which is a big advantage, since I always have to lie down to manually vacuum under my bed.
    As far as the sound is concerned, I have already read in some reviews that the device is allowed to drive on the same floor while sleeping. I think the robot is just too loud for that, it would absolutely wake me up. He always drives around here when I'm working from home, that doesn't bother me (which I've often had with other vacuum cleaners that this does bother me), so the device is not extremely loud. After all, he has never once got stuck in a situation where he has not managed to get out of it himself. Sometimes he doesn't find his charging station the first time, but eventually he gets there. However, the device does not automatically resume after charging.

    mop function:
    As good as the unit vacuums, it mops poorly. I really don't see the added value of the mop function. It's just a wet piece of cloth that drags on the floor, so it doesn't really clean much. I have now used the mop function three times to test it anyway and my opinion has remained unchanged. For comparison, I first let the device drive on my ground floor (50m²) with the mop function and then immediately went over it with my steamer. The photo of the steamer shows that it was really dirty (despite the fact that I brush every two days and don't wear shoes inside the house). So you can't expect too much from this.

    Conclusion:
    It is a good device for daily driving, but is not a full replacement for manual brushing. Where I used to brush manually every two days, I now let the robot vacuum cleaner do its job daily and I only brush thoroughly every week. He has certainly taken a lot of work off my hands, as it is now vacuumed every day by the time I'm done with work. When it comes to the mopping function, on the other hand, I would not buy the device, but if you are looking for a robot that vacuums well, this is definitely recommended.

    Good vacuum cleaner, mopping function not good

    Steffi | 13 August 2020 | In the version: With area delimination and longer battery life | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Flat
    • Different modes
    • app
    • He does not absorb larger dirt
    • mop function

    Handy vacuum cleaner, easy to set up via the app. You can choose different modes. He is quiet. Dog hair is really absorbed. However, mopping function is not so good, small reservoir and streaks

    Surprising result and also some minuses
    • Along / under chairs, under the furniture, etc. is going well
    • Cleaning is easy
    • Removes hair and sand (from the dog) well
    • Sound is not too bad
    • Multiple positions: whole room, along the wall or 1 spot
    • Mop stays wet on the floor afterwards
    • App provides limited information
    • Stuck in the same place regularly

    We have had the Rowenta robot vacuum cleaner at home for a few weeks now. After unpacking, first charge it and pair it with the app. It was easy, everything is explained step by step. The charging station must be placed against the wall with 1.5m of free space on the left and right and 2m of free space in front. So he is really visible.
    The first round we wondered where he was going and whether all the places would be covered, but the robot did indeed get everywhere. Under the corner sofa, under the furniture, on the mat, in the corners and along the chair legs. For this, the robot has fairly long brushes, which work in hair, sand and dust. After the round we were surprised how much dust, sand and hair was in the bowl!
    Cleaning is easy. This is explained step by step in the app, but actually needs little explanation. There is a tray that you can take out with a separate filter. In addition, you can completely remove the central brush to remove the hairs. With an always shedding dog in the house, this is necessary. Sometimes you need scissors to get the bristles off the brush, but that is very easy.
    In the app you can set up a schedule when the robot should start sucking on its own. That works well, but the robot sometimes gets stuck. Especially in the beginning you have to discover where things go wrong. We have 1 spot under the sofa that we don't understand why it keeps standing there. Then you have to help him on his own again. Sometimes it no longer understands where it left off and goes back to the charging station.
    The mopping is a nice addition. It won't remove stains, but it will make it nice and fresh again. Once in the charger, the mop will remain wet on the floor, which is not convenient for a laminate floor. We only use the mop if we can remove it immediately after use.

    What - and + points at a glance:
    - Mop stays on the floor afterwards
    - App only provides limited information
    - Regularly stuck in the same place
    + Along and under seats is going well
    + Appearance is sleek and small
    + Sound is not too bad
    + Multiple positions: whole room, along the wall or 1 spot
    + Removes hair and sand (from the dog) well
    + Cleaning is easy

    Great addition to our family!
    • design
    • long battery
    • spacious dust container
    • quiet
    • doesn't really mop, is more swiffling
    • do not use any cleaning product

    design
    I immediately noticed: this robot vacuum cleaner from Rowenta would not look out of place in our interior. It may sound a bit crazy, but you really have to leave such a device in your living room, otherwise it will not be able to do its job properly. And then it is not unimportant that you at least do not find the device ugly!
    Matt black, sleek design. Perfect in our modern interior. In addition, the device is also not as high as most of the competitors. This is handy because it drives neatly under all the furniture.
    They. Yes. I got caught up in the stereotype that ladies are usually responsible for cleaning. Our Mariëtte does a good job.
    Mariette. Yes. I have also been captivated by the fact that everyone seems to give their vacuum cleaner robot a name. But hey, that's the best proof that she's liked, isn't it?

    Sound
    You can hear the robot, of course, but the noise level in itself is not disturbing at all. You can perfectly let her drive around in the evening while you are sitting on the couch watching your favorite series.
    There is no difference in sound in vacuum or mop mode. Only the suction power is decisive. This was set to 'default' and had no problems.

    Performance
    As a vacuum cleaner, the robot does what it has to. All dust, hair, crumbs and other things are neatly vacuumed. The reservoir is also sufficiently large so that the entire house can be vacuumed in one movement without having to empty it in between.
    Emptying the dust container is also very simple: raise the lid and remove the container. Extra brushes are also included so that you can properly clean the reservoir and filter.
    The vacuum cleaner works very methodically and neatly follows a pattern during cleaning so that she can vacuum all the spots and leave nothing. There is also a setting where you can have the vacuum cleaner follow the edges of the walls.
    In addition, you can also choose between 3 different strengths (eco, standard and boost) to set the suction power and battery life. Useful! For the time being I opted for standard and that is certainly sufficient to vacuum up all the crumbs and the battery life is long enough to vacuum the entire house.
    It does take a while to fully charge, but there is more than enough time between two brushings.

    But how does the vacuum cleaner perform in mopping mode?
    To enable the mopping function, you have to attach an extra coupling piece to the robot yourself. This seemed a bit annoying at first, but actually this is only 2 minutes of work. What more could you want when your house is mopped instead? Just fill the reservoir with water, wet the accompanying mop, attach and click the whole on the vacuum cleaner.
    The working method of the robot is identical to the vacuum cleaning function. The only big difference is that every surface is immediately “mopped” afterwards.
    Anyone who expects a robot that mops as you would with a mop and bucket will miss out on this. You can't compare mopping with a thorough manual cleaning, of course, but this is certainly equivalent to swiffling or going along with the mop.
    You cannot use a product in the mopping robot, so there is no real brushing. If you let the mopping robot do a round every day, you will have little extra work at the end of the week to thoroughly clean your house.

    Application
    You can fully set up the robot and keep an eye on everything via an app. This way you can program the whole week in advance and decide for yourself when the robot can do its thing.
    For example, I set that she could start her cleaning round every weekday at 2 pm. By the time I got home from work, she was already charging and my house was freshly vacuumed.
    The app also shows when it's time to clean the filter and how many sessions the robot has already had. You will also be notified if there is a malfunction.
    I myself have not often had a malfunction, but I can imagine that in a household where something is regularly lying around, this can often occur. It is very important that there are no loose parts on the floor, otherwise the robot cannot perform its work properly. So perhaps not the most suitable purchase for the slobs among us. Although: the application can also send you a reminder just before the vacuum cleaner starts its round. This way you still have time to make the house clutter-free.

    Conclusion
    I think it's pretty self-explanatory. I am convinced of the added value. The more souls, the more joy there is for sure. Mariëtte is integrated into our household. She's also fascinating to watch and she's the only woman my husband can keep staring at.

    Great robot vacuum that does what it promises!
    • Good suction power
    • Reaches all angles, doesn't miss a spot
    • Silent vacuum cleaner
    • Handy mopping function
    • App is a nice plus
    • App does not always update smoothly

    This robot vacuum cleaner not only looks neat, it also makes the house tidy. Installing is very easy, the short manual will guide you through it in a few steps. The app is a plus and I use it all the time.
    In terms of vacuuming, it exceeds my expectations. Many years ago we also had a robot vacuum cleaner, it didn't do what it was supposed to do at all. This rowenta DOES now! He vacuums the whole house, goes into every corner, doesn't miss a single spot. The suction power is quite ok. The mopping function is also often used here and is easy for a quick cleaning, although it does not replace the real work that is to be expected.
    He always finds his charging station without any problems.
    In short, handy robot vacuum cleaner that does what it promises!

    Surprisingly clean
    • He doesn't miss a spot
    • Made low so got under furniture
    • He makes a lot of noise
    • The drifting is not great
    • The app is slow in my eyes

    I've been using the vacuum cleaner for a few weeks now and what a difference. Not vacuuming yourself fantastic! He vacuums very thoroughly and well, even with 3 cats in the house he vacuums everything well. Disadvantage: be sure to clean up all loose cables and toys, he can get stuck in them. Immediately after 1 vacuuming, you will see all the dirt in the container. Pretty amazing that he finds so much filth. The vacuuming + mopping: it is of course not done as well as you would do it yourself, but it is already a lot cleaner. If you would do this once a week you would see the difference. I would prefer to be there every time he drifts, something goes wrong or to refill the water. The app does not respond quickly. I use the app to launch it and guide it back to its docking point. Conclusion: I would definitely recommend it for people with animals, it's a real convenience! I think his house is a bit too small for it now. In terms of looks, he has everything there.

    Good product, but expected more...
    • Not too noisy
    • light
    • Simple, can be placed under anything, barely 6 cm high...
    • Suction result
    • Choice of suction result
    • Fragile keys on robot
    • Fragile dust container, filter
    • Dull design, matt white
    • mop function
    • Boring app...

    -Silent, battery life, suction result, can be placed anywhere (6cm)
    - Mopping function undersized, dust container and brushes get wet and dirty
    -no visual or audible messages via robot(speech,...) & app
    - finish could be better, dull matte disc, quality dust tray and brushes
    -our Roomba for upstairs is much more solidly built, much better removable dust container...
    So let's see how long it will last...

    I recommend it to everyone
    • Easy controls
    • Accurately vacuums
    • gets everywhere
    • Goes to charging point yourself
    • Clear app
    • Battery drains quickly
    • Don't pay attention to the vacuum cleaner he has an illogical route but will get everywhere

    Fantastic help in the household, I only vacuum my seat myself.
