Product Details

iRobot Mint 4200 White Automatic Floor Cleaner, Model 4200MINT

From iRobot, makers of the Roomba vacuum and Scooba floor-scrubbing robots, comes the Mint 4200 Floor Cleaner, a revolution in hard surface floor cleaning.

Cleaning hardwood floors has never been easier

The advanced technology of the Mint cleaner makes it a truly "set and forget" device. Once started, the Mint uses Northstar® Navigation to map a course around your room, ensuring a thorough cleaning job. The low profile design lets the Mint 4200 fit under furniture, while smart sensors help it maneuver around table legs and keep it from falling down stairs. PerfectEdge™ technology lets the Mint robot pick up dirt and dust along walls or the toe kick of kitchen cabinets.

Versatile Cleaning Machines

The Mint floor cleaner 4200 offers both wet and dry cleaning options. To pick up dry debris, simply attach one of the included microfiber dry sweeping cloths, and sit back as the Mint sweeps your floor clean of dirt, dust and more. For more advanced cleaning, use the included microfiber mopping cloth, or attach a pre-moistened towel (such as those made by Swiffer®) and the Mint cleaner does double-duty as an automatic mopping machine. The mint cleaner is suitable for all hard surface floors, including hardwood, laminates and vinyl or ceramic tile.

Features:

  • Easy to Use
    Stop scrubbing floors and chasing dust bunnies. Put your feet up while Mint cleans for you. Simply attach a cleaning cloth, set Mint down and press either the Sweep or Mop button. Mint intelligently cleans so you don't need to move any furniture
  • Cleans Intelligently
    Mint intelligently maps and tracks where it goes so it never misses a spot. It uses the NorthStar ® Navigation System which works like an indoor GPS. PerfectEdgeTM technology allows Mint to clean right along walls and edges, and around chair legs and other obstacles for a complete clean
  • NorthStar® Navigation
    The NorthStar® Navigation Cube projects a signal that Mint uses to determine its location. As Mint cleans, it builds a map of the area, marking walls, obstacles and drop offs as it encounters them
  • PerfectEdge
    Mint doesn't cut corners, it cleans them beautifully. PerfectEdge technology allows Mint to pick up dust and dirt precisely along baseboards and edges, for a complete clean
  • See it in Action
    Mint uses advanced aerospace-based technology, which systematically and thoroughly cleans your floors so it never misses a spot
  • Knows Where to Go
    Mint has smart built-in sensors that can detect furniture such as chair legs and slows down while gently making contact to avoid damaging furniture and obstacles
  • Smart Sensors
    Mint's smart sensors let Mint gently maneuver around obstacles, avoid stairs and detect area rugs and raised transitions to carpeting
  • Whisper Quiet
    Mint is whisper-quiet - you can work or carry on phone conversations while it cleans in the background. Mint is so quiet, you can set Mint to work while you sleep
  • Cleans Where Vacuums Can't
    Because of its small size, Mint can get under sofas, beds, tables, and work in tight corners where large vacuums can't. Mint's square-shaped design fits corners and edges beautifully

I'm going to exchange this for another one and hope that it is just a defective one. So far, it ran for 10 minutes, near the kitchen and then it bumped a wall, red light and 3 beeps then returned to where it started. Having followed ALL the troubleshooting guidelines, it now only turns on, connects (3 solid blue lights), begin dry sweeping goes straight to a wall, bumps it, red light & 3 beeps and returns to where it started. :( My Roombas are AWESOME....but this MINT II is very disappointing. We'll see if the support 'WOWs' me....if so, I'll come back and revise my comments.

Understand how it works

By 

from Kearny, New Jersey

Pros

  • Works as advertised

Cons

  • Hair Around The Wheels

Best Uses

  • Hardwood

I have it for over 3 years now. I use the product at least once a week.
It works as stated in the features, although, sometimes I found it working on an area repeatedly, for some reasons I don't know. It stops when closed-in trapped in an area and could not manage to get out.
It needs to be charged at least 9 hours to fully charge 100%. And, make sure to use up the full battery charge each time (meaning, use it again and again until the full charge is depleted). So that next time it will be used again, the battery will be recharged starting from zero. The battery seems to have memory-charge issue. Meaning, if the floor cleaner is used for, let's say, 70% of the full battery capacity and then was recharged after that, it would only work on the 30% re-charged capacity, thus it would seem like the battery gets re-charged less and less.
The other problem is that during floor cleaning, hairs get wound around the wheels, so when left uncleaned after several times of use, it will stop working properly. (I guess, that's why when the technical support is called, they ask to turn the wheels in reverse, to cut the hair trapped to free the wheels).
So, to keep the floor cleaner always working perfect, remove the hairs that got "wound-entangled" around the wheels after each use.
And to charge it only before use next time with fully depleted battery, as much as possible.

Parked on Shelf

By 

from Austin TX

Pros

  • Quite
  • Small easy to carry
  • Uses Swifter Wet Mop

Cons

  • Cleaning Pad Doesn't Stay
  • Does Not Stay In Area
  • Takes long time to clean

Best Uses

  • Clean Empty Room
  • Contained Areas

one of the things I liked most was the ability to use desposilable cleaning clothes. No messy cloth to clean up. I own a Roomba and love it but very dissappointed with the Mint. It moves very slow and you must build a fortress to keep the cleaner in a specific area of a large room. I tryed it in the bathrooms but again it seemed like more work. The cleaning pad kept coming off and the cleaner could not get around the toilet area. I gave up and put the Mint on the shelf and have not tried to use it again. Still looking for a good mop mate for my Roomba!

    I got the mint 4200-A as a Christmas gift. It works great. I have an open floor plan of about 1500 sq. feet of hardwookd floors and mint does a good job. My bedroom is large and has laminate floors and mint does a good job on the laminate floors as well. I first used the sweeper to get all the dust and debris and then I dampened one of the cloths and occassionally lightly sprayed the floor while the mint does it thing. I wish that I knew how to get the Pro clean Reservoir Pad that is said to be compatible with my Mint 4200-A series but not included with my Mint. This Pro Clean Reservoir Pad allows adding water to the Pad for better cleaning I don't see the Pro Clean Reservoir Pad for sale on the web site. My cats and dogs love watching the mint do its work. I actually have clean floors everyday now! One complaint is that it works for about 3 hours and then needs recharging.

      This is a remarkable item. Turn it on and go about your business. Takes the drugery out of sweeping and mopping the kitchen floor. We have yet to see what it cannot do.
      It has a learning curve the first couple of times but it really goes to town afterwards.

          Best Uses

          • Hardwood Floors

          If you have hardwood floors I would buy this thing immediately - it's the first "robot" thing I've ever bought - I figured that 1) not being a vacuum, it would probably use components similar to every RC car out there - so it's likely reliable and, 2) as it uses the swiffers you can buy at the store, it'll provide the same level of mopping I do, only do it while I'm doing something more important...like playing video games. I'm not sure how well it work on tiled flooring - but he's intelligent and doesn't get himself stuck more than 1 in 4 cleaning sessions - it's not a big deal when he does, he sings a little "help me" tune every few minutes until you rescue him - but I've only had to do that twice and he's cleaned my entire house - all 3500 sq ft of wood flooring, a good twenty times - Bernard, as I've come to call him, totally rocks it.
