Robot vacuums are the perfect foray into the world of luxuries you thought you’d never have. While self-driving cars and space travel are still reserved for the Jetsons and the one percent, it’s time for the rest of us to indulge a little, too. And doesn’t indulgence feel so much better when it’s not actually that indulgent? This iRobot Roomba 694 Wi-Fi Vacuum is one of the best.

This top-rated Roomba is extra slim at 3.54 inches and is quieter than your normal vacuum. Since it’s so slim, it gets all those hard-to-reach spots under couches and dressers without you moving around all your furniture. It also has laser sensors to avoid getting stuck on carpets, bumping into walls, or falling down stairs.

"This thing makes me feel productive even when I'm just sitting on the couch," shared one of more than 10,000 five-star reviewers. "It's a little loud, but it's a vacuum cleaner, so that's to be expected. It also bumped into everything the first couple of times I ran it, which kind of drove me crazy, but then I realized that's how it maps out the space. Now that it has a good idea of the layout of my place, it's very gentle. I have two cats, and one avoids it while the other chases it around, so that's entertaining. Definitely worth the purchase!"

You can even set a schedule for your Roomba to clean when you’re not around, or just ask Alexa or Google to do it. The vacuum will return to its dock to charge as needed and get back to finishing the job once it's powered up. 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. It’s perfect for pets and gets better as time goes on, even suggesting an extra clean when your area's pollen count is high, or during pet shedding season.
