With this Eufy RoboVac 11 review, we hope to give you an idea of how this vacuum performs, so you know if it is a machine you want to invest in.

The Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum has a little bit for everyone. Its obvious benefit is being cordless and robotic all in one unit. Lets go over the highlights of this vacuum first. 


​The Eufy 11 uses 11 infrared sensors as it surrounds and moves effortlessly through your home. 

To prevent getting stuck, it uses a pressure sensitive bumper. This eliminates any damage to the vacuum as well as improves its overall navigation. 

You won’t have to worry about this vacuum at all inside your home if you have multiple levels. It senses if it is nearing a ledge with its drop-sensing technology.

This is a nice feature as you won’t return home to a Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum that has tipped over and spilled its contents.

Dirt and dust are collected in a 0.55 L dust box, which can easily be emptied when full. The vacuum also features a low-profile design to allow it to go under furniture with ease. It also comes with a remote control.

You can control where this vacuum goes right from the comfort of your couch in manual mode. This remote is also used to program your Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum’s cleaning duration and process.


The suction on the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum has been improved to include the Power Boost technology. This provides 1000 Pa of suction which allows the vacuum to go from hard to soft surfaces without issue.

The Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum has a long runtime at 100 minutes on standard mode and as long as 60 minutes on its Power Boost mode.

In our testing, we’ve found the amount of time can actually vary quite a bit, depending on circumstances:

  • when on medium pile carpet, we’ve found the Eufy 11 runs 60-80 minutes before running out of charge
  • when on low pile carpet, run time can vary, but it generally fluctuates between 80-110 minutes
  • on hardwood flooring, we’ve seen the Eufy run anywhere from 120-150 minutes on a single charge

It comes with a charging station which the vacuum returns to after it has completed its cleaning cycle. This keeps the vacuum charged and ready to go for its next cleaning job.

​One concern we had was how well the Eufy would be able to return to its station. We have a larger home that is not compact – we watched as Eufy entered the mode where it needed to return to base, and it was no where near. However, it consistently makes it back to its base to charge, no matter how far away it is.

Charge time is 3-4 hours. This allows you to work several automated cleaning sessions in on one day, if you’re aggressive. 


You get plenty of accessories with the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum. It comes complete with a charging base and AC power adapter, allowing you to get started using the vacuum as soon as possible. There is also a cleaning tool to remove any dust and dirt buildup.

You’ll also be thankful for the extra set of high-performance filters and side brushes. This allows for replacement when these components wear on the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum.

These do wear out over the course of 6-9 months. We run our Eufy every day, so you might not have to change them as frequently if you only run your auto cleaner a few times per week.

When it comes to evaluating the price on this automated cleaner, it really all depends on how you come into the conversation.

​If you are ONLY evaluating your options for a cord free cleaner, then the Eufy ​ is on the pricier side of the equation​. There are a lot of other cordless options out there that have more suction power, if that is your only evaluator. 

However, it would be a bit ridiculous to only evaluate this vac from that standpoint. This isn’t really a cordless vacuum… it is an automated vacuum. It does all the work for you.

​The Eufy 11 provides complete robotic operation and will literally clean your home for you while you are away. This will free up your time and allow you to do more things you enjoy rather than focusing on housework.

And, on the spectrum of robotic vacuum cleaners, the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum is one of the cheapest available. 

What We Like

There are quite a few things we like about the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum, including that it offers full robotic operation.

Who wouldn’t want a vacuum that can clean their home while they are away? We felt the same and gave the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum high marks in this regard.

​It is an incredible feeling to come home at the end of a day at work, and open the Eufy’s dust bin to empty it… and see exactly how much dirt and debris it picked up. You’ll be shocked by home much it picks up every single day, without any effort on your part.

Compared to other robotic vacuums, Eufy’s run time is probably about average. And, this isn’t bad, because its price is very, very low. So, average run time for a below average price seemed more than fair to us.

The Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum’s ability to go from hard to soft surfaces seamlessly is also a nice addition. You can clean multiple rooms within your home without worrying about it getting caught up on carpet as it makes a transition.

We’ll talk a little bit more below about how Eufy handles on thicker carpets. 

We also think the remote operation is a strong feature as it gives you the ability to manually clean areas that may have been missed in an earlier cleaning cycle.

  • Long runtime
  • Ability to go from hard to soft surfaces
  • ​Affordable robotic vacuum

What We Don’t Like

When reviewing the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum, we did find a few drawbacks we wanted to be sure to include.

For starters, the dirt canister on the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum may seem like it will not hold an entire cleaning cycle of dirt or dust, but it really does depend on the buildup in your home. ​

For us, even on the dirtiest of days, the Eufy 11 can hold everything, but just barely. We certainly recommend emptying it after every use, because it really isn’t all that large.

You do have to always be mindful you are keeping obstacles to a minimum in your home and that all doors are left open if you plan to clean multiple spaces at once.

The vacuum can potentially get hung up or be unable to clean a room if you don’t plan accordingly. At first, it seems a little odd… you need to plan a bit for where Eufy will run, and how to ensure it can get around successfully.

But, if you are diligent about where you need the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum to go, it shouldn’t be too much of an issue. Honestly it becomes second nature after a bit. 

This robotic vacuum doesn’t do well on thick carpet. We have one thick shag area rug, and it gets stuck about 75% of the time. We’ve had to fashion a little bumper around the rug to keep Eufy off of it.

So, there are the downsides. We still think that the Eufy is far and away ahead of other robotic vacuums, when you consider the price you’re paying.


  • Small dirt canister
  • Can get stuck on obstacles or shut doors

The Best Robot Vacuum under 200

​For us, we were skeptical about having a robotic vacuum. Would it really work? Would it get stuck constantly, or break easily? We have found the Eufy 11 to be fantastic on all fronts, certainly getting our vote for the top robotic vacuum under $200.

Would we recommend this vacuum? 150% yes. We actually tell all of our family and friends about it, and highly recommend buying it.

As an example, here is a text message exchange with my sister, after she purchased one. 

Frankly, we love how she summed it up. As we think about it, not having to vacuum is truly life changing!

We think the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum is a really good vacuum for a homeowner that is looking to keep their home clean on a regular basis.

It may not be a good solution if you have pets ​with thick hair, or a lot of thicker carpets.

​Outside of that, the Eufy RoboVac 11 Robotic Vacuum is an ideal vacuum to clean your home’s hard flooring, concrete floors, and carpets.

​Why Buy?

​Complete automation for a ridiculous price, the Eufy RoboVac is a great addition to your house cleanup.

  1. I bought the eufy 11S about a month ago and after running it the first time, I felt like a heavy weight had been lifted off my shoulders. Just to think that I didn’t have to wear myself out sweeping, vacuuming and mopping was very freeing. I still mop, of course, but just mopping doesn’t leave my back hurting for hours and hours like performing all three tasks. This vacuum is my first robot and does a great job. The first room I vacuumed, I took the broom and dustpan and swept the room — all clean; did not find any dirt. The living room-kitchen combo is a particular trouble spot because my dog sheds ALL the time. I do have to empty the vac frequently when it’s working in this area due to the dog hair. For this reason, I am always here when it’s running. I do unplug a lamp and phone extension and just put them in a chair as well as putting a board behind the couch to block off a lamp cord and power outlet. I was/am especially proud of the job eufy does in my bedroom. I had not been able to get under the bed and clean for a very long time and I could smell the dust. Eufy went right under there and vacuumed it up and it even smells better in there now. This is my first robo vac and I’m so glad I bought it — don’t know why I waited so long. Oh, and the price was around $200; much better than the $500 or $600 for the big-name ones you see on TV. Somebody’s got to pay for that advertising; glad it’s not me. And if you do have back problems like me, I wait until the eufy is close to the couch or love seat and then I stop it, lean over and rfemove and empty the dust bin and reinsert it. Much easier on the back than reaching down from a standing position.
