Roomba and Eufy deals: HUGE Black Friday discounts on our favourite robot vacuums
If you've been holding fire on buying a robot vacuum or upgrading your current cleaning bot, now's the time to pull the trigger, with cracking Black Friday deals on Roomba and Eufy models. The Eufy RoboVac 15C Max currently tops our list of robot vacuums as the best-value option and has had its price slashed from GBP244 to GBP153 on Amazon. That's over GBP110 cheaper than it was when it received five stars and our coveted Best Buy award in February 2020.
The other robot vacuum deal that's caught our attention ahead of Black Friday is a hefty discount on the iRobot Roomba j7. We reviewed the Roomba j7 at GBP700 last year, but it's more recently been available for GBP599. That price has come crashing down a further GBP140, meaning you can pick one up for just GBP459.
So, what sets these two robot vacuums apart from the competition? Well, in the case of the Eufy RoboVac 15C Max, you're getting an extremely efficient, quiet, and thorough cleaner for a very reasonable price. It's impressively streamlined, which helps it maneuver into hard-to-reach areas, and can clean in shifts of up to 100 minutes at a time, so there are very few spaces it can't tackle before running out of juice.
App control, a handheld remote, and support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant give you a number of options in terms of how you choose to control the RoboVac 15C Max, while a pair of extra spinning brushes and a spare filter are welcome inclusions in the box. Though the Eufy RoboVac 15C Max can't map out rooms before setting off, it does an excellent job cleaning most surfaces. Its one weakness is stray cables, but the same could be said about pretty much any robot vacuum cleaner on the market.
It's incredible value for money as this special Black Friday price and the perfect entry point into the world of robot vacuums. The iRobot Roomba j7 is a rather more advanced option and a particularly good one if you own pets. Unlike the Eufy, the j7 is able to map your living spaces and does so superbly, spotting potential obstacles and navigating around them with minimal fuss.
Pet mess is of course one such obstacle and that's why we crowned the j7 the best robot vacuum for pet owners. Its collision detection is first-rate and this provides much-needed peace of mind when setting up an automated cleaning schedule using the free companion app on iOS or Android. As far as the Roomba j7's cleaning goes, it's proficient on both carpet and hard floors.
It doesn't handle spot-cleaning quite as well as its stablemate the Roomba i3, but overall performance impressed our reviewer enough to award the j7 four stars and our Recommended Badge.
One of their reservations was over the j7's price, but thanks to the bumper Black Friday discount it's received, that's far less of a concern now.
