iRobot Braava Jet m6 review: an intelligent robot mop

robot mops seem like a great treat, especially if you already spent a few hundred dollars on a robot vacuum. But there are times you make a lot of sense, as if it is mainly hard floors in your home. iRobot Braava Jet-m6 is the best we have seen for this scenario.

It performs in both dry and wet MOP up to 1,000 square feet in a single cleaning session. It forms with your basic plan for a targeted zone of the cleaning. It can also compatible with clean in the sequence, with the Roomba vacuum cleaner.


But bigger than the iRobot Braava Jet 240 I reviewed earlier this year, the Braava Jet m6 is still relatively compact, measuring 10 x 10.6 x 3.5 inches and a weight of 4.4 kilograms. There is a camera and a sensor on the top for the navigation, together with a retractable carrying handle. The silver disc in the middle is a lid covering the water tank. In addition to home, Clean, and Clean prior to place buttons.

“precision spray” nozzle on the front of the Braava Jet m6 wetted wipe the floor. On the bottom is a pad reader, the wheels, the cliff sensors are located, and load contacts.

The Braava Jet m6 can dry floors sweep and wet mop hard.

The Braava Jet m6 comes with a charging cradle, detachable drip tray, a selection of disposable MOP pads (three wet, three dry), and a small sample bottle of Braava Jet Hard floor cleaner. You can buy additional pads for $8 for a seven-pad-pack, or a pair of washable pads (one wet, one dry) for $25. A 16-ounce bottle of cleaning solution cost $8.

Setup and performance

construction of the Braava Jet m6 is similar to the one from iRobot, the Roomba sucks. Connect the dock to an electrical outlet and to charge the robot on you. The main difference here is the dock includes a drip tray that they snap into place in front of the discontinuation of the robot mop. This accessory keeps the residual amount of water from pooling under the bot, when it’s back from mopping jobs.

With the Braava Jet m6 docked, download and log in to the iRobot app. If you paste the Braava Jet m6 from the list of iRobot products, the app prompts you through a few steps to connect to your Wi-Fi. The process only took a few minutes for me.

send the Braava Jet m6 on a training run to view your apartment floor plan.

Roomba-users will be familiar with the iRobot app interface, as it mirrors the one used for these products. First-timers should be able to find their way around intuitively. A large Clean button starts in the middle of the screen and stops mopping jobs.

A battery Symbol above shows the current battery charge level. A series of icons on the bottom of the screen access to date provides planning, cleaning protocols, smart-cards of your home, the layout, the help, topics, and different settings.

. With your phone or one of those company’s speakers smart, you can use voice commands to start, stop and pause cleanings and send the Braava Jet m6 back to the dock.

start a cleaning job that you just slot machine, one of the pads in the Braava Jet m6-pad-reading, and press Clean. I started with a dry, curved pad to clear the debris from the entrance and kitchen floor in my house in the lower floor. The Braava Jet m6 navigates nimbly around corners and obstacles without any hiccups.

One of the things I like best about this robot is it carpet recognizes right out of the box, without the user need to set-up physical or virtual barriers. Kept it from tracking dirt and later with water in my carpeted living room adjacent to the entrance area. If the Braava Jet m6 swept was finished, I had to dispose of a dirty pad and a much cleaner floor.

After I removed the dirty dry sweeping pad, which is ejected with the pressure of a button, I inserted wet mopping pad. Then I removed the water tank and filled it with tap water and half cleaning solution out of the bottle in accordance with the instruction manual. (Only use water, as well.) Finally, I have the tank returned to your compartment and hits clean.

wipe mode, the Braava Jet m6 sprays a stream of water a few inches in front, then the back and forth over the moistened area with the MOP-pad a couple of times. As it inch forward, It is repeatedly done this cycle until the job. Again, the robot performed a great work, the Navigation and the cleaning, so a lot of dirty evidence behind on the MOP pad.

braava jet m6 app-settings Michael Ansaldo/IDG

There are three wet-wipe modes, and you can adjust the amount of water, as well.

you can wipe your wet settings in the app menu “settings”. Three preset wipe modes available: Standard mode is similar to cleaning performance and total area covered, and I found it wipe be best suited for the maintenance. Deep mode increases the performance and reduces the cleaning to cope with the surroundings, difficult mess. Extended Coverage mode pug a larger area faster and with less cleaning power. In each of these modes, you can also adjust how much water the Braava Jet m6-sprays on the floor, with a simple slider.

If you crack a bigger house, or a complex reason, you can use the Braava Jet m6-map it and share it in the rooms. With one card enabled, you can use the Braava Jet m6 directly to certain rooms, virtual barriers—called Keep-Out zone and, in General, better control over the cleaning jobs in erlangen. As soon as you activate the mapping feature in the app, it is the Braava Jet m6, two to five passes over the area to create the map. is

a Further advantage of the mapping feature is it allows the Association of the Braava Jet m6 with a iRobot Roomba i7, i7+, S9 or s9+ robot vacuum for tandem cleaning. After the Roomba vacuuming is done a room, it shall inform the Braava Jet m6 that the job is completed, so that the mop can start bot dry sweeping or wet mopping. iRobot offers a bundle price when you buy one of these robot vacuum cleaner with the Braava Jet m6.


At $400, the Braava Jet m6 is a significant investment, but its smart features, excellent navigation and customized cleaning modes are worth the money, if you floors and a lot of hard in your home. If you live in an apartment or condominium, where those areas are limited to kitchens and bathroomss, the Braava Jet m6 is more mop than you need. The smaller (and less expensive) Braava Jet-240 is better suited for those tight spaces, and t still offers several cleaning modes, and easy operation. But for all the others, the Braava Jet m6 should be at the top of the list.
