iRobot Scooba 230

 

Small, light, and easy to use. Can fit behind most bathroom toilets. Virtual walls keep the Scooba on track in larger spaces

Battery life is too short. Will only work with its own solution or water. Only effectively cleans moderately dirty floors

Review: iRobot Scooba 230 floor washing robot

 

I first heard about iRobot's Scooba 230 back around the time of CES and, being a Roomba user, I was pretty excited. After all, the Scooba floor washing robot was the logical next step for me and any number of Roomba owners, but with it being too big to...

iRobot Scooba 230 Review

 

The Scooba 230 is iRobot's latest in home robotic mastery. The tiny Scooba 230 is only 3lbs, yet packs a punch inside of its tiny body. It will wash, scrub, and squeegee away all the dirt and grime on your tile, linoleum, and sealed hardwood floors....

Small in size, big on performance. Features iRobot's iAdapt technology for getting around obstacles. Thoroughly cleans your floor and leaves it dry enough to walk on within minutes

You have to sweep or vacuum your floors beforehand. Battery life could be better. Should cover more square feet for the price. Clean-up could be an arduous task

While I think the Scooba 230 is an adorable addition to the iRobot Scooba line, it does take a bit of prep before you can actually have the robot perform properly. Vacuuming or sweeping the floor prior to using the Scooba is a bit annoying, yet it is...

iRobot Scooba 230 review

 

The iRobot Scooba 230 is the company's new robotic floor cleaner designed to mop your kitchen floors so you can do something better with your life, like put your feet up and have a glass of wine. But is it really that simple? We got it to work in the...

Small, good at cleaning, YOU don't have to do it, only cleans with clean water, can be confined to specific room

Short battery life, expensive, you'll still have to sweep first

At £249.99 the iRobot Scooba 230 won't be for everyone and you still have to get the brush out to sweep your kitchen in preparation for Scooba. Which makes us wonder how much harder it would be to just get the mop out too...

Washes and dries floors quickly, Quiet in operation, Extremely compact, Simple setup & maintenance, Works with white vinegar

Only covers a small area, Entry level pricing still significant

iRobot Scooba 230

 

Robots will one day rule over us all. Until then, they're observing our movements, looking for weaknesses, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Oh, and mopping floors. Meet the automatic mop, the iRobot Scooba 230, floor-scrubbing sister bot to...

If you’re able to keep on top of the more physical dirt around the house, the iRobot Scooba 230 could to be a helpful addition to your cleaning arsenal, but it’s a pricey one considering the shortcomings, and not one you can truly rely on without a bit...

Okay but not what I expected....

 

The concept was a good one however there are too many little things that made this a reject on my part. The tank was a bit small and required emptying several times before it was able to clean the floor.It was sort of all over the place. it would start...

I've owned a irobot vac for over 5 years, finally got the Scooba! HOW DID I LIVE WITHOUT THIS?!? I live on a dirt road & the floors are always dirty. I can run this every other day & keep floor clean. Granted, it does not go into the corners or edges...
