Five years ago, we purchased and reviewed a robotic floor duster from Aldi. Robotic vacuums were really taking off at the time, and Aldi sold one of those, too, around the same time that the floor duster debuted. The floor duster was like a cheaper wannabe version of a robotic vacuum. It had no suction and simply scuttled around the floor gathering up dust bunnies on a cloth pad, and it also did its fair share of just rearranging dust bunnies rather than picking up all of them. I preferred the robotic vacuum because after turning it loose in my house, I could open the attached dust bin and actually see how much cleaner it had made my floors. Meanwhile, the robotic duster was a cool party trick with more limited utility.
Fast forward to today, and while we haven’t seen any more robotic vacuums at Aldi, the robotic floor duster continues to make appearances every once in a while. Most recently, Aldi is selling a robotic floor duster under its Huntington Home label. Previously, Aldi sold a floor duster under its Easy Home label. Both Easy Home and Huntington Home are not companies but rather private labels Aldi uses for various home goods.
What We Know:
The Huntington Home Robotic Floor Duster (Product Code: 705944) cost $19.99 at the time of publication. That’s the same price we paid for the Aldi Easy Home Robotic Floor Duster in 2017. Robotic floor dusters are not easy to find on Amazon, with primarily robotic vacuums showing up in search results, and robotic vacuums are going to cost upwards of $100 and more. So if you’re looking for a robot to clean your floors, this is the cheapest option out there, but be aware that it’s not a vacuum.
This duster is an Aldi Find, so it’s only in stores for a short time. Each store receives one shipment, and after that sells out, they’re gone until Aldi decides to bring them back, whenever that might be. Aldi does not offer online ordering for products that aren’t in stock at your local store.
Here’s more information, according to Aldi:
- Navigates automatically
- Reusable and disposable cleaning and dusting pads included
- Attracts and retains hair, dust, and dirt
- Features two timer settings for room size
What We Don’t Know:
We have used an older model Aldi floor duster, but we haven’t tried this particular current floor duster, so we don’t know how well it works or how easy it is to use. We don’t yet have information about how to obtain replacement pads. We also don’t know if this newest model has features that were lacking in older versions, such as the ability to detect stairs or ledges that the duster might fall off of. We write open threads to provide readers with an opportunity to talk about Aldi products.
