Much like the model before it, the DeenKee DK700 is a robot that boasts its ability to tackle pet hair and provides a great bang for your buck. There have been plenty of improvements from the last model to the current iteration, including a new gyroscope system, compatibility with Alexa and Google Assistant, Wi-Fi connection and remote control, and the promise of fantastic customer service.
It also comes with intelligent features, so you can clean more effectively and get more areas in your home spotless. With six cleaning modes and a sleek, thin design, this is a solid purchase for those who want a more advanced robot vacuum that won’t break the bank. Plus, it comes with all the tools and accessories you need to get all the cleaning done without any hassle.
Our review of the DeenKee DK700 Robot Vacuum put this robot vacuum through its paces. Let’s take a look at some of the best features of the DeenKee DK700 Robot Vacuum…
Design and Control: The DeenKee DK700 has a sleek and modern look that offers a nice upgrade over the basic black of other robots. Specifically, concentric circles span the whole cover, and an elongated shape on top of those circles encompasses the Clean button up top and the company name at the bottom. The main controls of the DeenKee DK700 include the power button that turns the unit on and off — it is located under the unit behind one of the wheels. When comparing the underside of the DeenKee DK700 with that of other robots, the differences are not immediately apparent. That’s because it includes most of the same parts as others — from the two main wheels and the front swivel wheel to the two side brushes, the brushroll, and the power switch.
However, the brushroll does appear to be proportionately smaller than those on many other robot models. Interestingly, this does not seem to affect the manufacturer’s claim that the DeenKee DK700 is specially designed to pick up and hold pet hair in its dustbin. Despite the compact main brushroll, the spinning side brushes are a fairly typical length and design. At 0.6L, the size of the DeenKee robot’s dustbin is right in line with industry standards. It’s a slight improvement over the manufacturer’s earlier i7 model, which was a combined vacuum and mop that came with a dustbin capacity of 0.55L. The dustbin is located at the back of the unit and is simple to take out, empty, and reinstall for further use.
Cleaning Modes: Much like the model before it, the DeenKee DK700 has multiple cleaning modes to help you manage the mess around your home. In addition to the ability to manually clean by using the arrows on the remote, the DEENKEE DK700 comes with six main cleaning modes:
The AUTO button on the DeenKee DK700’s remote — located in the top left corner under the time display — functions just the same as pressing the Clean button on the unit. Specifically, it starts the robot and cleans as necessary, depending on the level of dirt, dust, or debris in its path.
If there’s a specific area you would like cleaned within a 3-foot space, you can use the spot clean mode on the DeenKee DK700. This mode will cause the vacuum to rotate in circles until it has cleaned the entire area.
Single Room Cleaning
The button underneath the spot clean button — located at the bottom left of the remote — is the one you use if you want to clean just one room. The vacuum will run for 30 minutes and then return to its charging base when finished.
Next to the clock button is the button you press to schedule an auto or timed cleaning. This allows you to set a specific time for the DeenKee DK700 to run.
Edge cleaning helps your robot to focus on making sure all dirt and debris are suctioned away from the walls and edges of the room you’re currently in. The button is located to the right of the spot cleaning button on the DeenKee DK700 remote.
The MAX cleaning button is perhaps the easiest to locate, as it is labeled MAX. This mode ramps up the suction power on the DeenKee DK700 to 1500 Pa.
Advanced Technology: Built-in infrared sensors allow the DeenKee DK700 robot to avoid falling off ledges and colliding with walls and other objects that may be in its way. These sensors are located on all sides of the vacuum and run along the outer perimeter of the DK700. Bumpers along the front of the unit help to protect your robot as well as your furniture and walls from damage as the DeenKee DK700 cleans. They provide anti-collision and anti-drug advantages, protecting your vacuum from significant hazards.
Its new gyroscope system allows the DK700 to display the areas where it has cleaned, and build a cleaning map. With it, you’ll be able to avoid repeatedly cleaning the same places over and over again. Using Alexa or Google Assistant, you can now configure between using the remote that comes with the DK700 or opt to connect to a Wi-Fi connection and use the app that comes with this excellent robovac.
Power and Battery:
With its upgraded motor and lithium-ion battery life of 2600 mAh, the DeenKee DK700 defaults to a power suction of about 1000 Pa. However, its MAX cleaning mode — which can be accessed using the remote control — brings the Pa to 1500. It takes approximately 5-6 hours to charge the DeenKee DK700 fully. The vacuum has a run time of up to 100 minutes using standard power settings. When we tested it on MAX mode, it ran for about 35 minutes on MAX power before needing to be charged. And when it has less than 20 percent of its power remaining, the robot will return automatically to its charging base and recharge for another round of cleaning.
Size and Noise: When it’s running at its lowest power setting, the DeenKee DK700 hits around 55 decibels. Be aware that using the MAX power setting will increase the noise level slightly. The size and dimensions of the DK700 are similar to those of other new robot models.
Here are the specs for the DeenKee DK700:
At the height of 2.8”, the DeenKee DK700 is one of the slimmest robots in the market. This thin design allows the robot to clean under furniture without getting scratched or stuck. While the DeenKee DK700 weighs more than some other robots in its category (like the Eufy RoboVac 11 at 6.7 pounds), its weight is relatively standard when compared with many Roomba robots, like the Roomba 980 (8.7 pounds).
Cleaning Performance: Cleaning performance on the DeenKee DK700 was quite good. It easily cruised through our hardwood floor cleaning tests, doing nearly as well on carpet.
The DK700 removed 99% of all debris on our hardwood floor cleaning tests. It wasn’t quite a perfect showing, but it still got very close. The only debris it wasn’t able to remove was a small clump that got pushed into the corner. All other debris that it could easily reach was removed from the testing lane.
Our tests definitely push the limit of what the dust bin can hold. The bin is meant to hold 0.6L, and we tested with 0.6L of debris. When we picked the DeenKee up off the floor and set it back down, there was some debris that fell out. It wasn’t a huge amount, but it was something we noted. Under most cleaning situations, this should be a non-factor, but if you find yourself routinely filling up the bin, you may run into this issue more often.
Low Pile Carpet
Low pile carpet was excellent as well, removing 97.5% of all debris on the lane. The only debris it wasn’t able to remove was very fine debris, including a small amount of kitty litter and sugar. It should be noted; we ran both our low pile carpet and high pile carpet tests using the MAX mode. While it’s great to see what the vacuum can really do at the highest power settings, while using MAX mode, you use more of the battery. As a result, if you have lots of carpets and want to utilize MAX mode, you should know the battery life will be notably reduced in this mode.
High Pile Carpet
Our high pile carpet tests were similar to what we saw on the low pile carpet. The DK700 was able to remove 95% of the debris we tested on the lane. As with low pile, on high pile carpet, we used MAX mode also. Based on these tests, you can really get a sense of the level of suction generated through the robot’s cleaning lines. Overall, the DeenKee DK700 has an excellent cleaning performance on high pile carpets.
While the DeenKee DK700 has everything we could ask for and more, it does suffer from a lack of polishing. A few customers have complained about how the DeenKee DK700 continually gets stuck on rugs, vents, under cabinets, and even on the legs of tables. Others have also complained that it doesn’t always go back to the charging station on its own.
It also seems to have problems with its remote control, as it works fine for a while but then shuts off completely. However, you can still use the app to guide your DeenKee DK700 if needed. Finally, some users who have tried to get in touch with DeenKee for customer support haven’t had luck getting in contact with them. This is particularly disappointing, as a company should always live up to their promises of providing help for its customers.
In the end, the DeenKee DK700 delivers an excellent performance. With its six different cleaning options, you can make sure that it can accommodate all your cleaning needs — its MAX mode is guaranteed to provide a powerful suction system that will eliminate dirt on any surface. And with its new gyroscope system, you can count on it to reach every inch of the home for a thorough clean.
However, due to its inconsistencies, it misses out on being the best robot vacuum that it has the potential to be. Overall, though, it has some of the best features available on robot vacuums today and even has advanced features that we don’t always see in other models in the market. Plus, its budget-friendly price is one that anyone can appreciate, and for the performance it gives, we can undoubtedly say that this purchase is worth it.

1 review for DeenKee DK700 Robot Vacuum
I recently purchase a DK700 to clean an open area maybe 25 feet square. No obstructions. The units starts up and only goes halfway across the room turns around and goes back. It seems like it is overwhelmed by the open size. I sent a note to support and they said they are looking it. Seems very strange?
