As much as I like discovering new cleaning products and methods, I can’t say I actually enjoy the process of washing the dishes, unloading the dryer, or vacuuming. Especially not vacuuming. Whereas some people prefer to invest in a stick or upright machine that’s built for monthly deep cleans, I much prefer a hands-free alternative for weekly pickups. I was fortunate enough to try my very first robot vacuum this year and figure this fact out for myself, but my colleagues are already experts on the topic. Less than a month ago, we released our list of the best robot vacuums for every type of customer on Kitchn’s sister site, spotlighting the products that turn an otherwise tedious chore into a practically effortless task.
At the top of our list was Neato’s D8 intelligent robot vacuum, which won the Best Overall category. Not only is this the floor cleaner of our dreams, but you can now buy it at Bed Bath & Beyond for half off! You’ll want to hurry while this unbeatable deal lasts.
When Apartment Therapy contributor Terri tested this robot vacuum in her home, she listed its use of LiDAR technology as one of its best features. Basically, this far-reaching D-shaped machine does a much better job of mapping out your floor plan compared to others that use cameras. It’ll memorize your home’s layout in a flash and be ready to start cleaning before you know it. All you have to do is download the MyNeato app to create defined zones and start a session. The Neato D8 swiftly navigates its way around floor objects, taking care not to bump into or scratch your furniture. Its straight edges allow it to get into corners and leave no square inch of floor space untouched. Schedule it to clean both hard surfaces and low-to-medium pile carpeting, and watch as its extra-wide brush picks up every last piece of hair, dirt, and dust.
But that still doesn’t cover all of this robot vacuum’s shop-worthy qualities. In addition to its powerful suction ability, the Neato D8 can also run for up to 100 minutes at a time. Depending on how large your home is, it could very well clean all your floors in one go. Whether you’re at work or commuting back, you can schedule a cleaning session and come back to clean hardwood and tile without having had to haul a heavy vacuum around, yourself. What’s more, this product also has an extra-large dust bin, which means fewer empties. Really, we’re struggling to find a reason why you shouldn’t buy this ingenious cleaning tool. At $200 off, there’s no cause for hesitation!
