iRobot Scooba 450


Where most floor mopping robots are designed for light-duty maintenance cleaning, iRobot's $600 Scooba 450 can tackle heavier spills, stains, and other unsightly messes with comparable ease. That makes the Scooba 450 unique among its competitors --...

iRobot's $600 Scooba 450 really can replace your old mop and bucket. Separate tanks mean that dirty water doesn't get recycled back onto your floors.

Its battery is only good for 40 minutes, (roughly 300 square feet of cleaning) and it has a 2-hour charge time. There's no automated scheduling or charging dock, and the Scooba's rounded shape can't clean corners. At all.

iRobot's Scooba 450 isn't perfect, but it's a solid, albeit pricy, choice for small space cleaning.

iRobot Scooba 450


It's no small investment, but the iRobot Scooba 450 is a very effective way to keep your floors sparkling without reaching for a mop and bucket.

Effective cleaning. Easy to use. Speaks audible cues

Pricey. Loud. Requires some manual labor to keep clean

Vacuum robots are great for picking up physical debris and pet hair tumbleweeds, but they don't exactly leave your floors looking shiny and new the same way a good mopping will. If you've already grown accustomed to automated floor cleaning, though,...

iRobot Scooba Floor Washing Robot


Gets the job done. Will clean your floor better than a mop.

More expensive than a mop and bucket. Costly consumables. Needs a good cleaning with each use.

Scooba is a robot mop that can make easy work of the dirtiest floor, but you'll pay handily and wait a while for it to get its work done.

iRobot Scooba reviewed by PCMAG: receives 3.5 out of 5 stars


PCMAG has an early, hands-on review of the iRobot Scooba which should be generally available starting next month. You know, the heavier, taller, and wider followup to the hot Roomba vacuum which will prep, wash, scrub, and then dry your floors. Besides...

iRobot Scooba 450 review


Simple to operate, Cleans thoroughly

Lacks spot cleaning mode, Not entirely autonomous, No smartphone connectivity

All things considered, there’s a lot to love about this bot. It’s ridiculously simple to use, it cleans floors thoroughly, and it only requires a small amount of effort to set up before each use. No matter how you look at it, Scooba is a...

iRobot Scooba


The iRobot Scooba is a floor-washing robot. It not only preps the floor from mopping and scrubbing. It does the washing and scrubbing too. It even squeegees. It has been designed for solid uncarpeted tiled, marbled and concrete surfaces. It is also...

Seems to work well


Used it several times and am pleased with it so far.

Consumer review by: Forensic (

Useless in Dry areas of the country


The theory behind this unit is to lay water everywhere then come back and clean it up. In dry areas of the country, the water simply evaporates. When you empty the "dirty water" there is no water because it evaporated before the unit could get to it....

not what I expected


Not what I expected. The floors stay very wet and with strips of water that makes you get a mop and dry it yourself... in that case it's better that I do the job myself!
