iRobot, the makers of the well-known Roomba line of vacuuming robots, has announced a new addition to its Scooba line, the Scooba 450.
If you have tile or hard wood floors that are in need of a good scrubbing, you may want to take a long, hard look at picking up the Scoobe 450. The newest iteration of the Scooba line is said to have three times the cleaning power of the previous model, and from our time talking with the folks at iRobot here at CES 2014 about the new device, we can see why.
The new Scooba 450 does an initial pass that picks up the largest debris while leaving behind a thin layer of water to begin soaking the remaining dirt like you would before you run dishes through a dishwasher. On the second pass it does a deep scrub to pick up all of the particles it can and clean down in the cracks. The third and final pass dries whatever remaining water may have been left behind.
The new model has a much chunkier and sturdy feel to its build and looks like a serious cleaning machine that means business. The clean water reservoir has also been updated so that the measuring cup for your cleaning solutions is actually built-in to make getting this little guy in motion that much easier.
The Scooba 450 is available starting today for a suggested retail price of $599.99
