Review: Eureka FC9
Before we start the test, let's take a look at the “Eureka” brand, which for some ears is not that unknown. At least those who are familiar with the American household appliance market will probably have heard of Eureka.
The manufacturer of the same name was founded in 1909 and produced a wide range of vacuum cleaners and matching accessories of all kinds. In 2016, the traditional company was finally bought up by the Chinese Midea Group and the brand name Eureka was taken over.
The Eureka FC9 is one of the first products produced by the Media Group and offered on the global market. Here is an overview of the features:
- Water electrolysis: The water is purified by electrolysis and 99,9% of bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores are removed
- Suction power: 220W power with 8000 Pa suction power
- Two-tank system: 750 ml fresh water tank and 650 ml dirty water tank
- Self-cleaning: Simple self-cleaning without wringing out
- Dirt detection: Automatic performance adjustment to the degree of dirt
- Volume: Quiet operation below 75 dB
- LED display: display with voice assistant
- Runtime: Up to 35 minutes of battery life (130m²)
We also have a Singles Day offer for the Eureka FC9. The practical cordless vacuum cleaner is available on eBay until November 12th at a price of only 279,99 euros. Simply call up the discount code below and enter it in the shopping cart.

Eureka FC9: design and workmanship
The design of the Eureka FC9 differs from the usual cordless vacuum cleaner. The center of gravity is not in the upper grip area, but is shifted to the lower part, which ensures stable maneuverability. Conveniently, the vacuum cleaner stands by itself and can be conveniently parked anywhere.
The color scheme is, as always, a matter of taste, but the metallic look with purple accents suits the Eureka FC9 well. The vacuum cleaner is mostly made of plastic, but not cheap plastic, but one that leaves a higher quality impression.
Eureka FC9: structure and functionality
How the Eureka FC9 works is easy to explain. At the front there is a fresh water tank with a capacity of 750 ml. This is where clean water comes in, which can also be provided with soluble cleaning additives. A bottle of detergent is even included.
The Eureka vacuum cleaner regulates the water delivery all by itself. The suction power is also automatically controlled in the "Automatic Mode" set by default based on the degree of soiling. This is measured with the help of a sensor. Alternatively, there is the "Quick Mode", in which the vacuum cleaner only sucks and does not give off any water. The mode is suitable for vacuuming spilled liquids or vacuuming carpets when the roll is dry. A spray function like that JIMMY HW8 Pro offers does not exist here.
Finally, clean water is delivered from the fresh water tank to the large soft roller, which mops the floor, at the same time catches dirt and transports it to the 650 ml dirty water tank. It is equipped with an additional filter that catches coarse dirt such as hair or lint.
An interesting function of the Eureka FC9 is the combination of LED display and voice assistant. The display allows you to keep an eye on the battery and cleaning at all times. The voice assistant also supports the operation of the vacuum cleaner and provides information on the mode, maintenance and the battery. If the voice assistant is not required, it can be switched off using a switch on the back of the device.
Eureka FC9: practical test
Good cleaning result
The question of all questions is, of course, how well the Eureka FC9 performs in practice and whether you actually no longer have to use the ordinary mop.
This question can be answered with yes, because the Eureka FC9 comes very close to normal wiping. Stains and dried-in items are effectively removed by the rapidly rotating and constantly moist brush.
In the case of stubborn stains, however, you have to stay on the stain for a short time. It is practical that the Eureka FC9 regulates the cleaning performance itself and controls the water output by itself. There are no annoying streaks of water.
A huge advantage over the mop is the time saved, as the brush cleans itself and does not need to be wringed out! There are corners where the vacuum cleaner has a hard time. Due to the design, these are not reached by the roller. However, we are not aware of any vacuum cleaner with a roller where corners do not become a problem.
Water electrolysis is a nice-to-have. When the handle is switched on, the fresh water released is purified by electrolysis, which in theory eliminates up to 99,9% of all bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores. It is not easy to determine whether it is true.
At the end of the mopping process, all you have to do is place the vacuum cleaner in the charging station. The self-cleaning function is triggered by the foot pedal, during which the soft roller is thoroughly rinsed with the water from the fresh water tank for about 2 minutes. The dirty water in turn ends up in the dirty water tank, which is then simply emptied over the sink.
Long battery life
The battery life is also impressive, which is sufficient for an average of 35 minutes of wiping. That corresponds roughly to a living space of 120 m². The battery is fully charged after 4 hours.
