Miele Scout RX1 Review


Miele Scout RX1 Review

The Miele Scout RX1 is one of the quietest robot vacuums when compared with others in its class. With it’s solid design, the Miele Scout RX1 is a durable robot vacuum that powers through the toughest household debris. The dirt bin holds an above-average amount of debris before needing to be emptied and the lithium ion battery enables approximately 120 minutes cleaning time before retuning to the charging dock. Both touch controls and a remote control are included on this robot vacuum.


The Miele Scout RX1 robot vacuum has a triple cleaning system that boasts two long side brushes and a removable beater bar. Cleaning on carpeted and hard surface areas is efficient and well above average when compared to other models in this class.

When it comes to sucking up heavy particles, such as cat litter or cereal, the Miele Scout RX1 is a solid performer. When picking up lighter pieces such as pet hair, this is more challenging and probably better achieved by the Samsung POWERbot VR9000 or Neato Botvac Connected


The navigation system on the Miele Scout RX1 is very high-tech. It includes a camera and several different sensors to provide you with a predictable back-and-forth ( parallel lines ) type pattern that cleans thoroughly. While the Miele Scout RX1 robot vacuum does not have virtual walls to keep it from venturing into areas where it should not go, there is a magnetic marker for this purpose, but it only covers a  small area. However, more markers can be purchased to increase the areas needing to be segregated.

Collision sensors keep the Miele Scout RX1 from bumping into furniture, while a remote control lets you send the unit where you want it to go, for on-demand cleaning.


The Miele Scout RX1 is an excellent robot vacuum when it comes to cleaning small and large areas, given it long battery life. With a run time of 2 hours and solid suction off both carpet and hard-floor, your home will be neat as a pin in a fraction of the time it takes other models. Though the programmable scheduling is limited, the unit is so quiet that you can let it run while going about your daily activities. There is a 2-year warranty on parts which is longer than many others offer, and 1-year on the lithium battery. Overall, the Miele Scout RX1 is a good all-rounder when compared to other robot vacuums in its class.
