Although we enjoy a good shopping frenzy as much as the next looter, we have to admit that not all the stuff in the Amazon Prime Day sale is of the absolute highest quality. We know this because it is very rare that anything in the #1 spot on our many, many lists of the finest things appears in the sale. 

Yet sometimes, dreams can come true, miracles can happen, England can be considered the world's 4th best football team… and the Best robot vacuum cleaner you can buy turns up with a colossal £300 discount. Like now.

The Neato Botvac D7 Connected, despite sounding like something from The Simpsons, is the best robot vac by a very comfortable margin, in fact. We suspect that its pricing is being squeezed by the fact that iRobot has much better brand recognition in the USA, and Dyson in the UK and Far East, but that doesn't change the fact that Neato's robots are better than their's.

Capable of both skilled and rapid navigation even around quite challenging floor layouts and surprisingly powerful cleaning for something so slender, the D7 Connected is the best robot vac you can buy. For those with areas of the home that are truly impossible for it to get through, it's even possible to use the Neato app to draw 'no-go' lines on a map of your place, preventing the D7 from entering. With sensors to prevent it falling down stairs or damaging more fragile furniture, Neato's flagship bot is like having hte world's most careful cleaner. It may not quite be able to replace your inanimate vacuum cleaner but for daily maintenance of carpets and hard floors it's grand. At this price, it is also something of a bargain.View Deal

As you'd imagine, there are plenty of other cleaning deals to be had at Amazon. Our second favourite is this Miele C3 cylinder vacuum – unfortunately, you will have to pull this around in the old-fashioned way, unlike the Neato.
