There’s something enchanting about a multi-purpose gadget you don’t see every day. That’s exactly what’s going on with the Eureka Dual Washing Bot. This all-in-one machine is actually four appliances in one.
At first glance, it might seem like a washing machine. And you’d be right. It is a washing machine. But it also dries your clothes in the same drum. So, it’s a washer and dryer combo.
Just open the front-loading door, toss in your dirty clothes, and the Eureka Dual Washing Bot will clean them up. Once they’re clean, it dries them for you.
That alone would be pretty cool, but Eureka isn’t stopping there. This machine also doubles as a base station for a robot vacuum. And guess what? This robot vacuum can also mop your floors, besides cleaning them of dirt and debris.
Eureka’s multi-function appliance isn’t something you come across often. So, when it shows up at CES, it’s hard not to sit up and take notice.
But wait, there’s more! The Eureka Dual Washing Bot is packed with features. Eureka doesn’t spill all the beans, but it does highlight some key features. For instance, the robot vacuum boasts a suction power of 5,000 Pa. That’s about half the suction power of the new Roborock S8 MaxV Ultra we checked out at CES.
This places the robot vacuum in the Dual Washing Bot in the mid-range tier for robot vacuums. At least where suction power is concerned.
But the utility of the vacuum being able to mop on top of its base station cleaning your clothes is likely to be appealing to many. Having all these things in one single unit also saves on space. And that’s not usually a bad thing, especially if you live in a smaller home where every bit of extra space counts.
The vacuum’s base station can also self-empty the bin when it’s done cleaning. There’s enough room to hold all that stuff picked up off your floors for up to two months. What’s more, the washing machine unit uses a single power cord hookup. It’s connected to your water line to feed the washing machine.
This also allows it to refill the water tank in the vacuum for the mopping function. Plus, a second pipe connection can empty the dirty water before the refill. The whole thing is a cohesive unit.
Eureka doesn’t mention pricing or availability. But it’s worth noting that the Dual Washing Bot is based on the ‘Washbot’ from Eureka’s parent company Midea. The Washbot even looks the same and appears to have all the same features.
