Robot vacuums were some of the hottest products this past Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with nearly every model selling out within a matter of hours as soon as they were in stock.
Luckily, it seems like several manufacturers of the most popular models have been able to secure some more inventory, and Amazon is slashing prices across the board.
That doesn't mean every one is a great deal. We test robot vacuums in our lab in Cambridge, MA to find out how well each model picks up dirt as well as how well it can navigate a slew of obstacles—just like the ones it'll confront in your home.
Based on current sales, our favorite in-stock pick is definitely the iRobot Roomba 770 ($339.99 at Amazon, SAVE $159.01) which is at an all-time low price of just $339.99, typically selling for over $400. We thought it was pretty darn good when we tested it for our review, and we think it's a better deal than any of the cheaper options from Infinuvo and Bobsweep on sale now.
Unfortunately, some of our favorites remain out of stock or on sale for full price. As of December 1, the Eufy RoboVac 11 is currently only available from third-party sellers at an inflated price. Bissell's competent and affordable new robot is sold out on Amazon. And at over $700, the attractive LG Hom-Bot is no longer as great a deal it was when it sold for under $500.
If you are looking to see what other recommended robot vacuums are on sale, though, here are the rest of the available deals. Act fast, because these may quickly sell out and may not be back in stock again before the holidays. There are some cheaper options on Amazon right now, but after testing nearly all the robot vacuums on the market these are the ones we'd recommend checking out.
