Look no further for the perfect robot vacuum to gift this holiday season. CBS Essentials readers have purchased more Eufy by Anker RoboVac G32 Pros than any other robot vacuum on CBS Essentials.
The top-rated robot vac regularly retails for $300, but it’s currently on sale for just $98 at Walmart ahead of Christmas.
This reader-loved, Wi-Fi-compatible robot vacuum can be controlled by your smartphone or voice assistant. Its powerful 2,000 Pa suction operates quietly, at about the same volume as a working microwave. It automatically increases suction when extra vacuuming is needed and features an infrared sensor for evading obstacles and drop-sensing tech to avoid falls.
“Wow! I wish we would have bought one sooner,” wrote a Walmart customer who purchased the cleaning appliance. “I was a little weary with this not being a ‘big brand’ robo vac but figured I could always return it. It did not disappoint! It is smart, fast, and picks up so much cr*p that my other vacuum (a Shark) does not. We are so happy with it, we bought another for our downstairs and another for my parents. 10/10.”

I used to have to vacuum everyday to keep up with all my dogs hair on the floor. Now I just run my iRobot everyday and it saves me so much time and energy. This vacuum is so easy to use. You literally press one button on the machine to turn it on or you can use the app on your phone.
