Product Details

iRobot Mint Plus 5200 Black Automatic Floor Cleaner, Model 5200

The Mint Plus 5200 floor cleaner is the flagship model in the Mint line of robotic floor sweepers from iRobot, makers of the Scooba floor scrubber and Roomba vacuum robots.

A small robot with big cleaning abilities, the Mint Plus 5200 floor cleaner builds upon the strengths of its little brother, the Mint 4200. You get the same intelligent room mapping, powered by the Northstar® Navigation system, but with an extended range. When using multiple navigation cubes, the Mint Plus can clean areas up to 2,000 square feet at once, even travelling from one room to another. In sweeping mode, the Mint 5200 will provide up to 4 hours of runtime. If you've got a really large space to clean, the optional Turbo Charge cradle can recharge the Mint Plus in as little as two hours, minimizing downtime.

The addition of the Pro-Clean feature increases the versatility of the Mint Plus 5200, by utilizing a removable Reservoir Cleaning Pad. Simply fill the reservoir with water or a mild cleaning solution, and the Mint Plus can mop up to 350 square feet with a continually damp cleaning cloth. Of course, for smaller jobs or dry sweeping, the Mint Plus is fully compatible with all Mint microfiber cloths and third-party pre-moistened towels, such as those made by Swiffer®.

It's time to put your feet up, and let cleaning machines from the iRobot family do the work.

Features:

  • Pro-Clean System
    The Pro-Clean System allows longer mopping for larger area coverage. A special Reservoir Cleaning Pad dispenses liquid throughout the cleaning cycle. The cloth stays damp so Mint Plus can mop up to 350 square feet in a single cleaning cycle. Tap water or mild cleaning solutions like Bona are recommended for use in the reservoir. The detachable Reservoir Pad fills and empties easily over the sink
  • Fast Charging
    Mint Plus charges in as fast as 4 hours with the included adapter. Its rechargeable battery also cleans for up to 4 hours dry sweeping or 2.5 hours wet mopping on a single charge. When used with the Turbo Charge Cradle, Mint Plus charges in just 2 hours so you can clean more in less time
  • Expandable Cleaning Areas
    Mint Plus can travel from one Cube to another to expand its dry sweeping area up to 2,000 square feet in a single cleaning cycle. Set up is easy. Simply place a Cube in the first area you'd like to clean and place additional Cubes set to different channels in other rooms or areas you'd like Mint Plus to reach. As Mint Plus encounters each new Cube it will lock on and keep building its map while it cleans
  • Sweeps and Mops
    In Sweep mode, Mint Plus uses dry cleaning cloths to pick up dust, dirt and hair, keeping your floors barefoot-friendly every day. In Mop mode, Mint Plus uses wet (or pre-moistened) cloths and a special mopping action to pick up the deeper dirt and grime
    • Compatible with Mint Plus reusable Microfiber cloths or disposables like SWIFFER® brand dry and wet cloths*
  • Easy to Use
    Stop scrubbing floors and chasing dust bunnies. Put your feet up while Mint Plus cleans for you. Simply attach a cleaning cloth, set Mint Plus down and press either the Sweep or Mop button. Mint Plus intelligently cleans so you don't need to move any furniture
  • Cleans Intelligently
    Mint Plus intelligently maps and tracks where it goes so it never misses a spot. It uses the NorthStar® 2 Navigation System which works like an indoor GPS. PerfectEdgeTM technology allows Mint Plus to clean right along walls and edges, and around chair legs and other obstacles for a complete clean
  • NorthStar®2 Navigation
    The NorthStar® Navigation Cube projects a signal that Mint Plus uses to determine its location. As Mint Plus cleans, it builds a map of the area, marking walls, obstacles and drop offs as it encounters them
  • PerfectEdge
    Mint Plus doesn't cut corners, it cleans them beautifully. PerfectEdgeTM technology allows Mint Plus 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
  • Cube-to-Cube Cleaning
    Mint Plus can travel from one Cube to another to expand its dry sweeping area up to 2,000 square feet in a single cleaning cycle. As Mint Plus encounters each new Cube it will lock on and keep building its map while it cleans
  • Pause / Resume
    The cleaning cycle can be paused to change the cleaning cloth by pressing any button or simply picking Mint Plus up by its handle while it is cleaning. The map of area covered is retained while paused so when Mint Plus resumes cleaning it can continue cleaning areas not yet covered
  • Quick Clean Mode
    Mint Plus can be set to clean only open areas and not perform a perimeter clean so you can cover more ground more quickly
  • Knows Where to Go
    Mint Plus 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 Plus smart sensors let Mint Plus gently maneuver around obstacles, avoid stairs and detect area rugs and raised transitions to carpeting
  • Whisper Quiet
    Mint Plus is whisper-quiet - you can work or carry on phone conversations while it cleans in the background. Mint Plus is so quiet, you can set Mint Plus to work while you sleep
  • Cleans Where Vacuums Can't
    Because of its small size, Mint Plus can get under sofas, beds, tables, and work in tight corners where large vacuums can't. Mint Plus' square-shaped design fits corners and edges beautifully

I purchased my Mint Plus hesitant, but with high hopes. Once it charged we ran it overnight in the home to wake up to a very dirty swifter. After I saw how intelligently it ran, and what it did to the bathroom (See Below), I was sold. It became a daily norm to run Dobby and come home to clean hardwood and tile floors. The best thing about Dobby is that he is meticulous and covers large areas with two cubes! I always considered myself a clean freak, but had no idea what I was missing. His mop mode is fantastic, although even with the Proclean reservoir I often find myself refreshing the wetness after 35 minutes. A very small gripe compared to how much time he saves my wife and I! Best part is when we clean up spills the towel comes up clean with no dirt!

After seeing what robots could do I bought my 780 and never looked back! Kreacher (780) does such an amazing job and Dobby compliments him so well! My floors are spotless and I gladly upkeep them weekly as a small thank you to all the hard work they put in! iRobot has a winner with the Mint line, and can not WAIT to see how the NorthStar I.P. is going to be put to use for ALL iRobot products in the future!

iRobot has a customer for LIFE with my family! Thank you, and continue to progress your amazing line of robots!

I bought this thing...it won't charge...i emailed customer service, they told me to call them instead. I called them and explained the problem. they first told me to call back when i have the unit in front of me...too bad i have a job that doesn't get me home before their help line closes for the day. next they told me to record the error noise that the machine is making and to email it to them. too bad the noise only happens every few hours which i had previously explained...they thought it shouldn't be too much of a bother to sit in front of a sweeper recording it for hours. finally they said they would send me a new one, took down all my info and then told me i should return it to the store instead. helpful stuff, great product!

      My Favorite Appliance!!!

      By 

      from Kansas City, MO

      • Compact
      • Easy To Set Up
      • Good Audio

      Cons

        Best Uses

          I don't normally write reviews, but I love the Mint Plus! I have very dark bamboo plank floors and they show every speck of dirt. This cleaner saves me so much time, and for that it's worth its weight in gold. I have used it for sweeping and it does a fine job, but I sort of enjoy sweeping the floors so I usually do that myself, then set the Mint up to mop. I have found it works best on my floors with a little vinegar mixed with water. If the sun is shining on the floor you can see the little tracks of the wheels, but if the sun isn't shining directly on them you can't really see the tracks. It leaves a beautiful sheen if you look across the floor. This is one appliance I wouldn't want to be without, and if it ever stops I'll be buying another!

            • Bad Quality
            • Not Durable

            Best Uses

              This product is not great at all. It seems like a very good idea and promising. However, not durable at all. In a year we've had it returned and exchanged 3 times due to problems with the robot itself. Nothing to do with improper use, maintenance, or floors not smooth enough. We live in a small new apartment with nice tile floors and Mint just can't deliver. I am very sad because it was very convenient while it lasted. Now I can't have my money back because oh coincidence, my warranty just expired two months ago!

              Great little helper!

              from Dawson County, MT

              Pros

                Cons

                  Best Uses

                    We moved into a barn for 18 months in Eastern Montana, using the office and tack rooms as our living space. We laid an inexpensive wood tone vinyl floor down and truly enjoyed our time there, thanks to our little Mint catching all the pet hair and wood shavings that invariably come with sharing your living space with equines. It also effectively removed the 'gumbo' clay like glue that the mud turns into in the wet Fall/Winter/Spring months in this part of the world. Our 'wood' floor looks GREAT!
                    I ran this little guy every day (sometimes twice) for the better part of a year and he made a BIG DIFFERENCE. Ran the mopping feature every night after the sweeping cycle. So quiet. Made coffee every morning in a clean room with a spotless floor!
                    He hiccuped once when one of his wheel coverings slid off and customer service took him back and returned him within a week (to Eastern Montana!!!) and called to tell me that sometimes certain cleaning fluids can affect the rubber on the wheels and recommended the Bona products. The tone of my customer service rep was one of a friend sharing a useful piece of information with a friend. I've had no trouble since I started using Bona. I dilute the solution and a little goes a long way.
                    Looking forward to using him in our new home! I really enjoy this product.

                      I bought Mint about 3 months ago. At first time, somewhat Mint did not work properly. However, after my husband set up the machine, it started to work well. Now, I love this small machine. Very quiet and effective. I use this machine every day. Pro. Easy to use. Con, Mint stop during cleaning for out of battery.

                      Best Uses

                      • Hard Surface Floors

                      I've had this for a couple of months now. I honestly haven't found a problem with it. I'm pretty analytical and discriminating, and I think that if you think you would appreciate this product as described, you will be pleased. I use the Mint after I use my Roomba. I have an open concept home, and my kitchen, dining, and living room are basically one room of about 800 square feet. It handles the entire area with no problem at all - wet mopping (which takes more effort for the machine.)

                      I read some reviews that suggested the machine gave off so much water that it would be bad for hard wood floors. I'm pretty careful with things, and I really don't see this as a problem. It is just like a damp mop and it doesn't get the floor wet anywhere. I like using it in the winter to increase the humidity in the house. (Also, our dog tracks a lot.) I think in the summer it will be sufficient to use the dry setting.

                      As an experiment, I put it in the mud room one day, and the mudroom was literally muddy. It did a fine job.

                      Super easy to set up. You can't set it to run at some future time like you can the roomba, but that is okay because the mint is quiet.

                      Best Uses

                      • Smaller Rooms

                      I have great expectation about Mint, I really love my Roomba and after reading reviews about Mint it seem a great upgrade. But I found many issue.

                      1- Sometime Mint is completly weird (it seem stuck but robot is in middle of the room) after I start, I have to turn off and turn on.
                      2- I have a little (very little) "bump" for join floor between each room, so it seem it's too big because Mitn won't
                      pass over and I have to move manually on each room, that's really :( !
                      3- (second stage, 3 bedrooms) It seem if I use NorthStar I can't position Northstar correctly and Mint process my main room correctly but didn't go on child's room !
                      4- (first floor) I use NorthStar on kitchen and it process kitchen very good but didn't procress more than 50% my living room.
                      If I understand I need one (maybe 2 more Northstar +80$ Outch) when my roomba do it by itself. :(
                      5- It swipe one time ... no intensive cleaning it could be interessing !
                      6- It seem not clean wall edge correctly, it didn't follow wall for cover all edge.

                      So, at the end, Mint do a job but with many manuel intervention and I really dissapointed !

                      This product has been amazing. I have fought against dog hair with two shedding dogs in the house for yeats. I run the mint every morning before I leave for work. When I get home, I shake out the cleaning cloth and at the end of the week I wash it. I now have the excess hair in my house under control.

                      • Hardwood Floors
                      • High Traffic Rooms
                      • Large Rooms

                      • Run It After Scooba
                      • Small Rooms
                      • Tile Floors
                      • Works On Garage Floors

                      Purchased it after IRobot Merged with the Company.
                      Compliments my IRobot 780, 4100 Discovery and my Scooba. The Mint has a Lower Profile Design and addition to the fabulous Silent Cleaning, after I run my Scooba on the Garage Cement Floor, I run the Mint Plus in the Mop Mode with the Dry Mop to fine tune the drying and cleaning process. Mint works GREAT on the Bathroom Tiles and gets into the tight corners that Scooba can't go (not 230).
                      Today, I removed all my desk components and then ran the Mint which throughly and Gently cleaned the Desk. Since our Hardwood Floors our on two different levels, I'm thinking of a Temporary Ramp to circumvent the stairs. Any ideas? These Robots have changed my wife, Jenzilla's mind over the course of a couple of months in terms of how well they clean and pick up pet hair, dust and grime that our Electrolux and Shark Miss. This means Jenzilla has more Time and Energy for ME (Best Thing About IRobots).
