At GearBrain, we have been testing robot vacuums for several years and have seen these tiny smart home cleaning devices evolve into smart home cleaning solutions. Today, iRobot unveiled the Roomba Combo Essential, a game-changing solution for anyone looking for an efficient and affordable way to keep their floors immaculate. Priced at $275, this innovative 2-in-1 robot vacuum and mop outshines the beloved Roomba 600 Series by incorporating smart navigation, a substantial increase in suction power, and the convenience of iRobot OS controls. Moreover, iRobot celebrates the remarkable achievement of selling over 50 million robots globally.

The Roomba Combo Essential redefines cleaning convenience with its 4-stage Cleaning System. It combines adjustable suction and liquid settings with a unique V-shaped multi-surface Brush, an Edge-Sweeping Brush, and a pump-fed microfiber mop pad. This ensemble ensures a thorough clean of hard floors in a single sweep. Boasting 18x more suction power than its predecessors and enhanced smart features such as Clean Map reports and customizable cleaning schedules, this robot is designed to fit seamlessly into any lifestyle.

"iRobot invented the Roomba robot vacuum more than 20 years ago to make cleaning easy and help people do more, and since the Roomba 600 Series was introduced in 2012, it's been a best-seller thanks to a balance of performance, price, and reliability," said Barry Schliesmann, chief product officer at iRobot. "As iRobot surpasses more than 50 million robots sold worldwide, we're honoring that legacy with the introduction of the affordable Roomba Combo Essential, which cleans even better and does more than its predecessor. This robot makes the iRobot 2-in-1 cleaning experience more accessible to all, be it a recent graduate, a new homeowner, or anyone looking to enjoy the benefits of automated cleaning for the first time."

The Roomba Combo Essential promises to simplify your cleaning routine. It allows users to choose from various suction and water level settings to tailor their cleaning needs. Whether stepping out or staying in, control your cleaning sessions with a tap in the iRobot Home app or a simple voice command. (Note: iRobot Roomba works with Amazon Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant-enabled devices.) The robot's intelligent design enables it to navigate around obstacles and under furniture for a comprehensive cleaning. With up to 120 minutes of battery life, it delivers a powerful and efficient cleaning experience with minimal effort.

In North America, the Roomba Vac Essential, a vacuum-only version of the Roomba Combo Essential, offers the same smart features for those who prefer a standalone vacuuming solution.
