iRobot Scooba 385 floor-washing robot

 

The iRobot Scooba floor-washing machine is a robotic mop that takes the hassle out of an almost always neglected household chore

Cleans well, easy to take apart and clean, mops the floor for you

Very loud, soap is not sold in Australia, expensive

The iRobot Scooba 385 floor-washing machine delivered good results during our tests. It is painfully loud, but it's probably not as painful as actually mopping floors yourself. It also uses considerably less water than conventional mopping.

I hate to mop. Can the iRobot Scooba 385 really help?

 

I am not much of a housekeeper. Though I like to see things neat and clean, I just don't have much of a will to make it happen on a regular basis. Consequently, I always get a little bit excited whenever something comes on the market that ...

Basically effective. Neat gadget. You're not doing the mopping yourself

Not as efficient or effective as mopping by hand is. Expensive

Scooba has made my life so much easier

 

f filters is easy. Negatives: it doesn't dock itself, but must be plugged in to recharge. The brushes are difficult to replace after cleaning. The cost of the cleaner is prohibitive so I am just using white vinegar in the water very effectively.

Garbage with worse backup

 

g was the restocking charge went on to the extended warranty also. I would not own a product that firstly didn't run, but after a car journey seem to work OK. If you want reliability I would not recommend this product.

Terrible

 

Although the Scooba saved my back and did quite a good job at cleaning the lino and wooden floors it only lasted 6 months before parts started falling off. Will cost me over $500 to replace all the parts needed. Definitely not worth the money! I...

Too expensive!

Like It Alot!

 

beam thing ( that stops it from going in rooms or carpet). But i have to rescue it from carpet if i forget to close a door. I've only had to rescue 1 or 2 times from getting stuck underneath my couch but for me that is easily fixable. I do find it...

Cost effective, does a good job in a confined area, back problems no more when mopping!

It is expensive but i think worth it, it is noisy, goes on carpet if doors aren't closed.
