Cleaning the toilet bowl is definitely a task that many people do not enjoy. At least that’s what Alton Robotech thought, finding a robot to do it for them. Once attached to the toilet, the brush-equipped device scrubs the inside of the bowl. The company claims that it will fit different sized toilets.

The Kitel Robot costs $498.27.

Amazon’s Astro Robot

Astro is not a cleaning robot. However, it is included in this list because it is intended to make everyday life at home easier. Starting in fall 2021, US Amazon customers who receive an invitation can get this smart robot with a little something to love. Let’s admit his big eyes give him a friendly air. Thanks to Astro, you can monitor your home at all times. When you’re out and about, you can ask the robot to explore different rooms in the house. Astro can carry things, send messages to other resident members, make calls and play music.

Astro is not available in Canada.
