The device uses three brushes that are meant to keep your floors spotless. Use the Automatic Mode to let it take care of the entire floor, or work on a more targeted area with Spot Mode. If you want to tackle those hard-to-reach corners, try Edge Mode. For those really sticky situations, try the Max Mode — which is designed to have double the suction power.

You can also use the accompanying smartphone app to directly control the vacuum's path, schedule its cleaning routine, or change the cleaning mode — even while you're not home.

The vacuum currently has over 500 verified five-star reviews, with many customers pointing out its simple operation as a major advantage.

"It was super easy to set up and the instructions are clear and easy to follow," one verified reviewer wrote. "The vacuum has good suction, is super easy to use, and is quieter than other vacuums. It does a good job at avoiding obstacles. When it does get stuck on something it beeps so you know to go check on it."

Other reviewers wrote that it might just be better than a traditional vacuum when it comes to cleaning under furniture.

"It rarely gets stuck, it cleans better than I do under furniture and around the corners," one verified reviewer wrote. "It's much gentler and more thorough than I would be while pushing a regular vacuum. I don't worry about it banging up my furniture or my baseboards at all."

"I was surprised by how quiet and efficient this is!" another verified reviewer wrote. "My dog, a rescue that Is terrified of vacuums, doesn’t mind this running near her. And I couldn’t believe the pet hair, carpet fuzz, and even glitter this picked up!"

If you're looking to decrease the amount of time you spend cleaning your floors, this bestselling robotic vacuum might do the trick.
