The Eufy RoboVac 11 is arguably the most popular robot vacuum around currently, and for good reason. Eufy was among the first major RoboVac providers to discover the all-important balance between quality and price. They have been rewarded handsomely, with thousands of sales since this model first went on sale. It has since spawned numerous revisions and offshoots. However, we feel that for many domestic users, the RoboVac 11 represents a fantastic all-round option.

Now you’re interested in robot vacuums, that interest may have been spurred on by the Eufy RoboVac. The brand has made a massive impact on Amazon – responsible for more robot vacuum sales than anyone else – and a core factor in that success is the Anker brand. The electronics company has built a reputation in a relatively short period as being the go-to for everything from chargers to sound equipment, and it is with the Eufy brand that they have had plenty of success in dominating the robot vacuum space.

At the time of this review, the RoboVac has already been succeeded by a newer model, the RoboVac 11S Max. However, the famous original is still on sale, and for a significantly lower price, and all without compromising much at all on core features and cleaning technology.

In simple terms, if you live in a fairly standard home, the RoboVac 11 will do everything you need. The quality of the clean is outstanding for the price, and it is only when you have multiple pets or construction work going on that you would have to consider anything in a higher price range.

An area in which the Eufy RoboVac 11 has been surpassed is connectivity. The unit works perfectly with a single button press on the robot itself, and it comes with a dedicated remote control. This battery-operated handset requires 2 AAA batteries (so don’t forget to pick them up at the same time) and will be suitable for activating the cleaner from anywhere in a standard semi-detached home.

As handy as that is, there is no getting around the fact that this is not the peak of connectivity nowadays. A basic remote control means no phone apps and no interaction with the likes of Alexa, Siri and Google Home. It is understandable, as the 11 series is Eufy’s entry-level model and they have stuck with the remote control with the newer 11S Max. It is only when you get into the realms of the 15 and 30 series from the same manufacturer that you will experience smart connectivity, and that does come at a price.

The 0.6-litre dust box is sufficient for a full clean of one floor in most cases, although you will probably need to empty it before you take the RoboVac upstairs. The unit will not start blowing dust everywhere when full, so there are no downsides to accidentally turning it on while full, but this is a good capacity level rather than a great one so we would advise emptying the unit following each clean.

Only high-pile carpets and darker hard floors will present a problem for this device, and it is suitable for all regular carpets and hard floors for a quality clean throughout the home.

Eufy RoboVac 11 – Pros and Cons

  • A great value option with cleaning power to rival more expensive models
  • A reliable brand name with a reputation for excellent customer service

  • Low profile to reach the places conventional vacuums cannot

  • Limited connectivity options for smart homes
  • Manufacturer occasionally falls behind in availability of spare parts

  • Older model – albeit cheaper with it

Eufy Robovac 11 – The Verdict

If someone came to us and said that they have never owned a robot vacuum before but want to try it out without breaking the bank, the Eufy RoboVac 11 would be at the top of our list. As noted, this is not the newest model in Eufy’s 11 series, but at current price points at the time of this review, we feel that it represents outstanding value. That applies to models from other manufacturers too – anything cheaper than this sacrifices suction power, reliability, capacity or a mix of all of them. Indeed, this model has become somewhat iconic in the world of robovacs because it measures up well to more expensive models.

Eufy RoboVac 11 Review

The compromise stems from the connectivity, and this is something that depends on your circumstances. If you want to turn the Eufy on while you head home from work, that isn’t happening with the RoboVac 11. However, if turning it on without leaving the sofa is all the connectivity you seek, then it has everything you need. As mentioned in the main review above, the resulting clean across all surfaces save for high-pile carpets, and dark solid floors is outstanding. In buying this model, you will have a robovac that is capable of converting you to never repurchasing a manual option. There are better overall robovacs out there, but they come at a higher price, and if you have value for money in mind, the original Eufy RoboVac 11 is almost impossible to beat.
