If you’re looking to cross vacuuming off your weekly to-do list, it's time to call on the robots for some help. The current robot vacuums you see in stores now aren't the same clunky machines from years back that bumped into every piece of furniture in the house and constantly got stuck in corners; many of the models today have sensors to avoid obstacles and can be programmed with an app or through Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can control the whole process without having to even leave the couch (or be in the house at all).

But there are a lot of choices in the robot vacuum market at the moment, so we've put together this list of some top-rated models on Amazon (only one from each brand) with at least 1000 user reviews.

1. Coredy Robot Vacuum Cleaner (4.4 stars); $180

The Coredy can run up to two hours on a single charge. Coredy/Amazon

The Coredy can handle large areas of floor just as well as it can clean precise corners, and when it needs a charge, it automatically heads back into its charging station. This model is activated through a remote control, but there's also an upgraded version that works with your smartphone or Alexa.

This eufy model is one of the company's slimmest options. Able to automatically increase its suction power in under two seconds, you won’t need to worry about particularly tough spots on hardwood floors or carpets. And with its ability to run quietly and find its own charging station, you just might forget you own one—except for the fact that your floors will be spotless.

(You can switch between them at any time, too.) The vacuum is also compatible with Alexa and Google Home, allowing you to integrate it into your smart home routine seamlessly. According to the company, it has around 100 minutes of battery life before it will need to self-dock and charge back up.

This Roomba's dual multi-surface brushes allow it to pick up dust, dirt, and debris from both carpeted and hardwood floors, and cleanings can be scheduled through an app or via Alexa or Google Assistant.
