Is it worth getting a Roborock robot vacuum?

If you’re setting cash aside for a robot cleaner, Roborock is definitely worth considering. It’s currently one of the few brands on the market to offer robot vacuums with mop functionality, plus the standard runtime of 180 minutes on some models is comparatively generous. The brand also offers a cordless stick vacuum − the Roborock Dyad Pro − for households who prefer to stay hands-on.

It’s also handy to know that most features mentioned are consistent across the range, with slight differences in suction power and maximum coverage area. So, you get what you pay for, but without getting short-changed on features, meaning if you’re in the market for a new robot vacuum, Roborock are worth exploring.
