THE BEST OF THE REST
iRobot Roomba 671 Robot Vacuum Cleaner (£399)
THE Roomba 671 offers a three-stage cleaning system and picks up everything from small particles to large debris, to pet hair. The auto-adjust cleaning head adapts its height to keep the dual multisurface brushes in close contact with different floor surfaces. Dirt-detect sensors recognise concentrated areas of dirt and prompt the robot to clean them more thoroughly. A connected app controls the device, and allows for scheduling. The wi-fi-connected Roomba 671 also works with Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant.
