If there’s one thing we all have in common, it’s that we want super-clean floors without having to vacuum every day. Robot vacs to the rescue! And they’re majorly discounted on Amazon right now.

If you’ve been reluctant to invest in a robot vac, we get it. You clean your house well, and don’t want to drop hundreds of dollars on something that might not do as good a job. That’s why we love iRobot—this brand makes robot vacs that do such incredible work, you barely need to lift a finger. They’re seriously worth it.

Four top models are on sale, and we defer to reviewers to explain just how great they are.

iRobot Roomba i7+

This is the robot vacuum to end all robot vacuums. It has the strongest suction of any iRobot (10 times stronger than the 600 series) and it empties itself at its charging station! It vacuums then mops, so just program it to clean on a schedule and get on with your life. Crazy smart, it learns your house with a mapping system, so if you spill something in the kitchen and need to run out, just use your phone or Alexa device to tell it where to clean.

“We have two Bernese and two cats. The hair and dirt is not to be believed. This is our third Roomba and far and away the best,” writes a five-star reviewer. “This thing is a MONSTER. First of all, it’s much quieter than the other two. It cleans much more quickly and thoroughly, without banging repeatedly into the skirting boards the way the 770 used to. The roller and brush design is smart and means less hair wrapped in a Gordian knot around the rollers. And the automatic emptying feature works like a charm.”

iRobot Roomba 960

Want high performance but don’t want to drop $800 on the i7+ model? This longtime bestselling Roomba has five times stronger suction than the 600 series and is Alexa-, app-, and WiFi-enabled.

“As a busy professional who travels a lot with two teens and two cats (one long haired) I needed a helping hand. It was costly, but first results are impressive,” writes a five-star reviewer. “We have a combination of carpet, wood and ceramic tile in our home and Roomba had no problem negotiating any of these or changing between them. I was amazed at how much hair and dust it picked up, despite having vacuumed the same week.”

iRobot Roomba 675

It may not have all the bells and whistles of the more elaborate Roomba models, but the beloved 675 has a near-perfect rating from more than 9,000 reviewers. It’s not quite as strong as the others, but it gets the job done. Plus, it’s the lowest price it’s been all year.

“We have three cats and it picks up all the hair. We have to pause it a couple of times during a cleaning cycle to empty the bin, but without the cat hair it would do a whole cycle before needing emptying,” writes a happy shopper. “We are seniors and it is so nice to sit in our recliners and have the Roomba do its job. Another plus is that it connects to our Echo Dot so all we have to do is say ‘Alexa start the Roomba.’”

iRobot Roomba 614

No-frills and fuss-free, this model is perfect for anybody who wants great work without all the fancy features. It’s perfect for pet hair, hard flooring and low-pile carpet.

“We decided to get a second Roomba because we wanted one at both ends of the house AND we added a dog since our first Roomba purchase. We can’t do regular vacuuming with big vacs and these little guys do a WAY BETTER job. Yes, you read that right,” says a five-star reviewer. “The Roomba is a powerhouse in a mini package. Now for a tip to all who want their purchase to last. We ALWAYS empty the filter and container about 45 minutes to an hour into her work. It keeps her cleaning at her best.”
